But what I think is a bigger problem is that donors were lured by — and they paid big money for — the opportunity to ride with Chelsea:
CNN reports that Chelsea herself did not participate in the class but did answer questions for guests shortly before they began their stationery ride....Here's the promo:
Don't you think the ladies who forked over $2,700 pictured themselves in their workout clothes, sweating, grunting, and laughing alongside Chelsea in her workout clothes, plugging away, taking instructions from Senior Master Instructor Laurie Cole for the full length of a "SoulCycle" session?
In the grand scheme of injustices, this ranks exceedingly low, but there's something irksome about the use of the old first daughter as bait... especially in a bait and switch.
And what's the "soul" in "SoulCycle"? I can't detect anything soulful about it.
