Skip The Housewares: You Can Now Put SoulCycle Classes On Your Wedding Registry
If you don’t want people sending you things you don’t need for your home and you think it’s tacky to ask for money, you can now encourage family and friends to help you and your partner get in shape as a wedding gift. Now that SoulCycle is allowing you to add their classes to your wedding registry, there’s finally just the right gift option for the fitness fanatics out there. You two can literally ride with one another until the nonexistent wheels fall off.
According to Self, the popular wedding registry site Zola has partnered with SoulCycle to offer couples the chance to add a 20 or 30-pack of classes to their registry. They’re also offering you the opportunity to put an actual SoulCycle bike on your registry if you don’t play when it comes to your spinning classes. It’s another great option alongside the usual housewares, trendy experiences, and the always beloved cash money.
The partnership comes after Zola did a survey of their registry users and found that more than 900 engaged and newlywed couples enjoy working out with their partners. A quarter even work out together on a weekly basis and 70 percent of users stated that they increased their workouts to get ready for their big day. Plus, all of the happy weight people might put on after saying “I do” means a class pack, or an actual bike, could be quite useful.
However, the packs are pricey. Self reports that the 20-pack can run you a whopping $572, (on the Zola site, many class packages around the country start at $540) and the bike is $2,200 (for that price, you should be able to also ride it through the streets). But with Zola’s group gifting alternative, your loved ones can collectively contribute to help you and your partner obtain that bike, or that pack of classes.
We’re hoping this partnership will open up the door for other popular forms of exercise to get in on the wedding registry fun. Because how amazing would it be for you and your husband to sweat together (and rid yourself of stress you don’t want to bring home) with some kickboxing classes or at a CrossFit box? Oh, the possibilities…
