SoulCycle is opening new locations in Chicago, Hollywood, Brooklyn Heights, and Westport, CT this spring, bringing its total studio count to 41 locations across the US. It's no secret that the company has been expanding like mad since it launched nine years ago; according to a release, SoulCycle fielded requests to open studios in 41 states and 50 international cities just last year. For now, four new locations will have to suffice, although the company expects to run more than 60 studios in and outside of the US by 2016. Newbies: get ready for the onslaught of FROW divas and BroCyclers.
