A New York comedian known as “The Fat Jew” has taken it upon himself to tone the city’s homeless people, using the SoulCycle method and applying it to stationary CitiBikes.
Fabrizio Goldstein displays the workout in a hilarious video now making the rounds on YouTube.
The Citibike bike share program was recently implemented in New York and at an annual fee of $95 its cost is paltry compared to the $32-a-class SoulCycle workout.
In the video, “The Fat Jew” yells out spin class phrases like “this is a cardio party” and “you guys feelin the burn?”
Goldstein says the class has even attracted some serious inquiries.
“This is an unintended consequence,” he told the New York Daily News of the attention he is getting from interested exercise enthusiasts. “I got dozens of emails today from people saying, ‘If you put up a schedule, I will come.”‘
On Thursday he tweeted: “I’m teaching SoulCycle classes to homeless people in New York City using parked CitiBikes. I’M BEING SERIOUS.”
