the 10
items that get me through the day


To liken SoulCycle to a cult would be a bit of an understatement: At five-years-old, with outposts scattered across Manhattan, the Hamptons, Scarsdale, Miami—and soon enough, Los Angeles (the first location opens in West Hollywood early next year)—the spin studios are somewhat of a second home to a whole host of cycling and exercise fanatics (and just to put it out there, celebrities). It makes sense: Everything about the experience is stylish, from the yellow and grey wrapped walls to the fashion-forward exercise gear in the on-site boutiques to the inspiringly good-looking, well-heeled, and excessively-fit clientele. And it's also effective. Overall, a 45-minute turn spin class often feels more like a session in a nightclub, in the best possible way. JANET FITZGERALD, one of New York City's most popular master instructors, spends an inordinate amount of time sweating it out on a bike every day. We tapped her for a list of items that help her stay energized and cool through it all.

Here, the products Janet Fitzgerald turns to, to get her through her day.

    Beats by Dr. Dre Headphones

    Every snow bunny needs a pair of these: They're high-definition on-ear headphones that deliver amazing sound—and they keep your ears sheltered from winter winds. It's a win win!

    Lifefactory Reusable Beverage Bottle

    I teach several classes a week at SoulCycle and staying hydrated can be challenging. I will not leave home without one of these water bottles: They're clear with a modern silicone sleeve in cheerful colors like lime, orange, and turquoise. It's really important to always carry a chemical-free container for all your favorite beverages! It's BPA-free, and a steal at $21.99.

    Lacoste Fitzgerald Vertical Tote

    Not least on my list, I need a big bag to carry all my goodies in! This tote is all I ever need. You probably think I love this bag because it shares my last name, but that's not why, I promise: It's spacious, it's lightweight, and the flat leather bottom keeps my computer and workout gear organized and safe. It's stylish and functional!

    Tata Harper Reparative Moisturizer

    As the weather gets colder I can't imagine my skin without this moisturizer! It's 100% natural, and has Aloe, Rose and Bergamot, which leaves my skin feeling silky and hydrated in the winter months. It's $100...but worth every penny to save my skin!

    100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Tinted Moisturizer

    If you're looking for a light daytime makeup, this is the best! 100% Pure makes a fruit pigmented tinted moisturizer that has vitamins, antioxidants, and SPF 20 (key!)—plus, it's 100% natural and vegan. I love the Golden Peach shade. They've even designed the bottle and the pump so that there's no waste... you get every last amazing drop!

    Brooks PureConnect Running Shoe

    These will make you feel like you are walking on the moon! They are crazy comfortable, and very cute for a casual sporty look. I was lucky enough to get a pair before they launched to take on an early test run and I had to give Brooks a major thumbs up. I love the light turquoise color.

    Kate Spade Rain Boots

    If it's raining outside I will most certainly be sporting a pair of black shiny rubber boots by Kate Spade in order to keep my feet warm and dry. The small heel on these is a bit glamorous, which makes me feel all the better in bad weather.

    Yves Saint Laurent Golden Gloss

    My best friend is Yves Saint Laurent Golden Gloss... any color will do, but I love "Golden Whisper" for a pale lip that actually contains 24 carat gold flecks. It holds up between workouts which is essential for me—and can take me fashionably into the evening (I especially love it with a dark smokey eye).

    KIND Snack Bars

    Running around New York City teaching SoulCycle classes and tending to a busy social schedule would leave me in a pinch without a proper snack. I always like to carry a healthy bar in my bag—but should I forget, KIND bars are great because you can find them at most markets. It's gluten and wheat free and is all natural (and only 190 calories).

    Lululemon Swiftly Tech SoulCycle Shirt

    I was over the moon when SoulCycle personalized the Swiftly Tech Long Sleeve shirt by Lululemon—and now I want it in every color for fall. The fit is perfect, it feels dreamy on the skin, and it flatters every body type. They say it's for running... so I like "running around the city in it!"
