SoulCycle, the unique mind-body-soul indoor cycling experience, is thrilled to announce that it’s officially bringing the party to Las Vegas with a brand-new studio. With more than 85 studios and counting, across the United States and Canada, SoulCycle continues to grow their community by bringing their transformative ride to Nevada. The studio will be located in the new Wynn Plaza, the resort’s unique new 70,000-square-foot retail destination located directly on Las Vegas Boulevard. The studio is set to open in early November 2018.

The new studio allows riders to incorporate SoulCycle classes into their travel plans. It brings the same adrenaline and excitement as a live DJ set or blackjack table—while rejuvenating minds and strengthening bodies. Classes are designed to immerse you in SoulCycle’s strong, uplifting community—transporting you from the casino into the best 45 minutes of your day.

The 3,145-square-foot SoulCycle Las Vegas studio will feature a 62-bike studio for its one-of-a-kind indoor cycling workout. This studio will offer an exclusive experience with illuminated lighting synced to better-than-ever playlists, an expanded podium that hosts up to three instructors, and mind-blowing art and neon installations. This impressive studio will also house a shopping experience offering SoulCycle’s unparalleled performance and athleisure collections.

In the true spirit of Sin City, SoulCycle will be teaming up with top DJs to create an unforgettable in-studio experience for riders. Top-talent instructors will lead cases with special guest appearances from Senior Master Instructors from around the country.

The new SoulCycle studio is extremely lucky to have Vegas native Madison Santoli move back to Vegas from DC to open the studio, where she has lived since 2014 and where she first started working at SoulCycle. Madison gave us the rundown on her story!

"I was born and raised in Las Vegas (so were my parents), and I moved to Washington, DC when I started school at Georgetown in 2014," Madison told us.

"I first found SoulCycle in DC. I did one class my freshman year and really enjoyed it but didn't truly fall in love with Soul until the summer of 2017. I was interning at a law firm and needed an outlet, both physical and mental. I started riding pretty regularly that summer, not knowing it would eventually change my life completely. By December of that year, I decided I was going to do everything in my power to become an instructor. I didn't go home for any breaks or holidays that way I could stay in DC to ride and to keep my schedule open for when the audition tour was posted. After I graduated, I moved out of my house in DC, took everything with me to NYC, auditioned, moved back home to Vegas, got into training, moved to NYC, and now I am back in DC...and oh yeah...I'm moving back to Vegas at the end of the month. SoulCycle has taken me on a crazy journey, but I couldn't be more thankful for all the adventures and people I've met along the way."

"I'm a Pisces, I'm left-handed. I love cats, Britney Spears, Shirley Temples, and my mom. My legs always have bruises on them because I'm constantly tripping and running into things. I studied government, philosophy, and bioethics in school. My laugh is really....really loud...like too loud. I don't like being in the sun. I drive a blue VW bug that I've had since I was 16 and my license plate (my nickname) is "Massin." Ina Garten is the light of my life."

In addition, artist William Arnold created generative art for the in-studio screens behind the podium. The art was created exclusively for the SoulCycle Vegas location. It was unique code developed in Cinder exclusively for this project. All of the visuals are running in real-time and responding to the audio levels. Nothing is pre-rendered and none of it repeats. The goal was to create a visual system that could match the flow and intensity of a SoulCycle class. It gives the instructors the ability to pair different visuals with different parts of their classes. William created three distinct visual behaviors based on the concepts of heart, aura, and energy. Each of the three behaviors responds directly to the music. They're all built on systems that either speed up or slow down based on RMS values. More quiet moments will yield slower, more tranquil results, while louder moments will cause the visuals to speed up and become more intense.
