SoulCycle, an indoor cycling studio popular with the fit and famous on both coasts, is opening its first Boston-area location at Chestnut Hill Square March 5, according to a press release.

The Chestnut Hill studio is over 2,900 square feet and features 55 bikes. It will also include a SOUL retail boutique, which will sell SoulCycle's original clothing collection. The studio currently has a pop up store at the mall so shoppers can see the bikes and purchase pieces from the clothing line.

SoulCycle is a "high energy, results-oriented, and community based" brand. It offers "boutique cardio fitness" through its candlelit studios and riding instructors who select their own music for each ride.

"Today, around 8,000 consumers ride in SoulCycle classes every day to release stress, burn fat, tone muscle, improve aerobic endurance, and change their bodies," according to the press release. "SoulCycle combines a mental component of inspirational coaching, with great music and a full-body workout on a bike."

SoulCycle class sign ups start at noon on Mondays for the following week. You can find classes and read instructor biographies online.

This will be the 26th SoulCycle studio in the country. The first studio opened in New York City in 2006. Today, celebrities including Oprah, Madonna, Lady Gaga, Bradley Cooper, and Jake Gyllenhaal can be found cycling in SoulCycle classes. Only time will tell if Tom and Gisele are next.
