Hollywood’s workout secret isn’t so secret any more. SoulCycle has dominated tinseltown for the last decade with pretty much every A-lister under the sun attending classes regularly. And though there is only one studio currently in New Jersey, a number of celebrities who hail from the Garden State are huge fans of the spinning studio.
Tenafly native Lea Michele is probably the biggest proponent of SoulCycle. The brunette beauty posts shots from various New York and Los Angeles studio on social media showing off the results of her hard workouts.
But, she’s not the only Jersey Girl working up a sweat there. Stratford native Kelly Ripa gets her killer body by adding in sessions at SoulCycle and has even hosted several events at the spin studio alongside her husband Mark Consuelos and pal Andy Cohen.
Princeton University graduated and actress Ellie Kemper revealed to New York Magazine that she loves the workouts and got hooked on them after suffering an injury. “I started taking SoulCycle classes,” she said. “Even though I can run again, I still go.”
Real Housewives of New Jersey star Melissa Gorga slots in sweat sessions at SoulCycle as part of her thrice weekly workout schedule when she’s not lifting weights with her husband Joe Gorga. And another reality star, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, used the spin classes to help shed a third of her body weight.
Montclair native Christina Ricci has posted several times on Twitter about her experiences at SoulCycle including how she was starting off her 2016 with an early morning session.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! I'm starting my resolutions immediately. On my way to SoulCycle! Shamefully, I was asleep by 9pm pic.twitter.com/5dE28hzAcp

Other fans include Haworth native Brooke Shields and Millburn native Anne Hathaway who have both been spotted leaving various studios. Anne has even donned a full SoulCycle branded getup while leaving a class with her husband Adam Schulman.
