BROOKLYN — SoulCycle, the boutique spinning studio that started in 2006 and has since become a fitness juggernaut, is opening its third Brooklyn outpost this month on Flatbush Avenue at the crossroads of Park Slope and Prospect Heights.
Called SoulCycle Park Slope, it officially will open on the second floor above Union Market at 342 Flatbush Ave. with a celebration June 15.
New York-based graffiti artist Elle Street Art has created a custom piece on the wall of the 55-bike, 3,188-square-foot studio with showers and a boutique selling the company's new line of performance clothing.
SoulCycle now has 16 Manhattan locations, as well as studios in Brooklyn Heights and Williamsburg.
"Park Slope felt like a natural next location for us, given the popularity of our studios in Brooklyn Heights and Williamsburg," said Gabby Cohen, SoulCycle's senior vice president of public relations and brand strategy. "With more than 75 SoulCycle locations nationwide, we're thrilled to join the Park Slope neighborhood and continue to spread the joy of movement in Brooklyn!"
The co-founders of the company resigned last year, a year after reportedly earning $90 million each upon selling a majority of the company’s shares to high-end fitness giant Equinox.
