With a law degree from St John’s University School of Law, Robert Kasirer went on to an Of Counsel position with Manatt, Phelps, Rothenburg, and Phillips. From there, he went on to a career in the health care industry, and today, he is a managing director with KFT Capital and a director of the aging and architecture-focused JacobRose Family Foundation. Robert Kasirer keeps himself healthy in part through SoulCycle.
SoulCycle is a form of spinning class on an indoor bike. Spin bikes are taller than regular stationary bikes and SoulCycle classes require clip-in shoes. Each class is 45 minutes and includes high-energy music and an instructor that takes you through a full-body workout with light hand weights. The class can burn 500 to 700 calories and generally targets the abs, glutes, and cardiovascular systems.
SoulCycle has become very popular in recent years, with celebrity endorsements from people like Kelly Ripa and Molly Sims. In addition to the workout, classes have a community aspect that many people find motivating. The choreography and intensity of focus also help some people relieve stress and anxiety.
