Emily is genuine and outgoing, which, in our opinion, is a refreshing combo for such a popular instructor. She greets riders at the door with “Are you ready to crush it”? Unlike some instructors (cough, cough), she doesn’t put herself on a pedestal. Instead, she gets down with the riders by introducing herself and striking up conversation! Emily is petite but her personality is larger than life. The techno playlist, black lights, and sold out class had us partying like we were in a NYC night club! She led a tough workout with lots of hills and sprints, leaving us breathless after every song. Astor Place is modern, spacious, and clean – everything we’d expect for a $34 class. A word of caution, though: Astor Place gets PACKED, so give yourself some extra time. And don’t forget to grab FlyWheel CEO Sarah Robb O’Hagan’s new book Extreme You!
Can’t stop, won’t stop. This is how Emily runs the show. She steered us through timed sprints and steep climbs and incorporated just the right amount of choreography. This was a well-rounded and challenging class. Fair warning for new riders, though, to not expect detailed instruction: Emily attracts and caters to the advanced riders. Our rec if you’re new is to follow the riders in front of you. Emily was focused on turning up the torq and we loved it. A LOT. Oh, and her arm routine! We weren’t just going through the motions; this was three minutes of pure hell!
Bubbly and cute best describes Emily, but don’t let her small stature and friendly style fool you. She CAAA-RUSHES it. An added bonus – she spent time at the beginning of class making sure every rider was set up.
Astor Place is a very spacious FlyWheel. As you enter the studio, you head down a long windy staircase. When you get downstairs, you will immediately run into the self-service iPads. To your right will be the front desk and apparel. The stadium is on the left next to the huge Fly sign and the lockers and bathrooms are straight back. The stadium has 70 bikes and is one of the largest we’ve seen, so the studio gets crowded – you will certainly be bumpin’ into some biddies.
Our advice: use the self-service iPads for a seamless check-in…the front desk workers are usually preoccupied and fielding questions.
