The fitness sensation broadens.

SoulCycle has lost the bikes but kept the cult-favorite instructors, innovative workouts and jamming playlists for its latest venture, SoulAnnex. Many SoulCycle instructors teach other types of non-cycling classes, and SoulAnnex was a way to give them a venue to offer them—and give clients a place to round out their workout regimens. Three categories of workouts are available: Define, which includes strength-training classes such as Torch’d, combining dance cardio and muscle-sculpting moves using body resistance and free weights. Align sessions emphasize core strength and the mind-body connection, like The Finery, an intense yoga class that also incorporates weights. Want to Move? Cardio Kombat features choreographed MMA-inspired fight sequences set to an energizing beat. 32 W. 18th St., soul-cycle.com
