Struct Club brings structure to music-inspired fitness instruction. By providing software for gyms, studios, and their instructors, Struct Club's simple app & unrivaled programming database streamline the entire process of delivering impeccable group exercise classes. In 2018, Amira incorporated Struct Club out of Harvard Business School, where she both got her MBA and began teaching indoor cycling classes at their gym. Coming from a prior career in enterprise software, she found that instructors lacked a modern tool to 'hit play & go' with facility-standard workout plans, playlists, and coaching scripts. "There should be an app for this," she thought. Class intelligence should be shared, and even predictive of individual styles based on personal preferences. Pollack continued, "Everybody deserves a great experience. That's what we want to provide as an industry. Losing 60% of our clients in one week, for example? That's just a disastrous business problem." Today, Struct Club's app is known by thousands of instructors in over 60 countries as their "karaoke machine" for class. But under the hood, Struct Club has a killer data engine that can fully automate a SoulCycle-esque DJ-ing & choreography process for a gym, studio, or club according to their own unique method, brand style, & rules.

What would it mean to truly live with intention? Imagine going after your career goals with enthusiasm and excitement and opening yourself up to deeper love and appreciation for yourself and others. What would it feel like to fully accept that all of it was here for a reason, the desires, the struggles, the situations? Even when you experience rejection, imagine feeling peace and leaning on the knowing that what's meant for you, wouldn't miss you. Perhaps you learn to accept that rejection is simply divine redirection. When you face a struggle, what if you could ask yourself, “what is this here to teach me?” Perhaps consider that you can live with intention and that everything is divinely designed. How would knowing this allow you to move through your life differently? Imagine approaching obstacles with grace, accepting and nurturing your dreams, and most importantly, accepting the role of a divine co-creator of your own reality. This week your host Ben Decker welcomes his friend and colleague Cassandra Bodzak onto the show where they discuss their careers in television as well as authors and entrepreneurs. You will hear how they navigate whichever triumphs and tribulations life hands them with more intention, grace and ease. "We are divine creators, at the very essence of, of our being and when we have these heart centered desires, I also believe that they were placed in us by the Divine, and so part of our journey is to go on to manifest them." - Cassandra BodzakThis episode is brought to you by Open, a social space for meditation, movement, and practice — on and offline.

Evelyn Webster was running Guardian News & Media's international operations in New York before taking over as CEO of the global fitness brand in December 2020. For Webster, a committed rider herself, and for its legions of fans, Soulcycle was so much more than an indoor cycling workout. As the company puts it: “The bikes may be stationary but they'll take you as far as you want to travel.” Webster discusses taking the reins in the midst of a global pandemic and (as if that weren't enough) with a late-breaking crisis in the brand's corporate culture to navigate, too.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
So in hindsight, I most certainly did have a religion. When I thought I had none, I had one. A religion is defined by your actions, not your words. Although I thought I was a member of something called “no religion,” it was actually secular humanism. But this is not surprising because the entire public school system was geared toward the religion of humanism and actively steered American children toward it throughout the 1980s and 1990s. What's strange is that we banned “God” from public schools because it was a religion. But we brought in humanism which is a religion. This religion is one that pretends that it isn't a religion. The Supreme Court even named it as a religion in 1961 (Torcasso v. Watkins), which is just stating the obvious. There were even humanist churches that sprang up and withered away. Few object to humanism being taught in schools because we pretend it's not a religion, but it has a manifesto with fifteen principles that sound a lot like commandments that defines the origin of the universe as it's first item of business. FIRST: Religious humanists regard the universe as self-existing and not created. This is literally the direct inversion of the three major world religions of Islam, Christianity, and Judaism. If you start with this premise, your worldview flips completely to a pre-Christian, pre-Hebrew mindset. I spent many hours yammering about this in the About Uranus series. If you remove God as the first cause of the universe, who created the universe “out of nothing” (ex nihilo), then you have a lot of explaining to do. In fact, if you start with this first point of humanist manifesto, you are already in the pagan world of Zeus, you just use different terms for it. The idea of a creator God never came up in public school. In a subtle way, the tenets of humanism are stamped on every American child. Unsurprisingly, I learned much later, after soaking in the bath of this humanist water for some thirty years, that one of the signers of this declaration of independence from religion, this humanist manifesto, was none other than the founder of modern public schools, John Dewey. Like Freud, the father of psychology, Dewey hated religion. Both of these founders saw their purpose as replacing religion with something else. From the book Atheism for Dummies, Dewey is a described as a kind of hero for doing a bait-and-switch on religion:Few people can claim a greater influence on American culture than the philosopher John Dewey (1859–1952). In the course of a long career, Dewey practically reinvented the American system of education from the bottom up.Dewey was also a key figure in the rebirth of modern humanism. But his approach was controversial, even among humanists — partly because he wanted to keep using the word God, even though he didn't believe such a being existed.Today we are living in a period of time where everyone is scratching their head and wondering why our world and nation is slipping into disarray. The fragility of nations and institutions is being felt across domains. Once you get out of the tub that you have been soaking in and look at the water, it's no longer confusing to see what has happened. The water is filthy. A billion people are soaking in that tub and not realizing how soggy they've become. They can't understand why they feel like dirty dishwater. They wonder how they can be in a tub and yet not feel clean. We don't feel clean because we are living a lie. Thus we have the “strange rites” that occupy so much of our modern life, particularly in sports, entertainment, health, fitness, technology. To quote the blurb from Tara Isabella's book on this subject, Americans are “embracing a kaleidoscopic panoply of spiritual traditions, rituals, and subcultures -- from astrology and witchcraft to SoulCycle and the alt-right.”It's all a substitute for God. All of it. For me it was the pursuit of experiences. Alcohol, woodworking, triathlons, sports, skydiving, military service, career - you name it, I probably tried it. A quote from Joshua Mitchell sums up the state of this constant seeking of meaning through the self:Homo sapiens is devolving into Selfie Man; and it is therefore to the manner of his falling into illness that we must attend, and to his experience of illness that we must appeal. I cannot prove it, but I suspect this is the path Selfie Man must take to recover an understanding of human nature. The Prodigal Son returns home only after he realizes the husks of corn on which he has been feasting nourish him not (Luke 15:11–32). The story of our times is one of spiritual crisis, because not only has the word God become taboo, but most people who say the word don't truly believe in it. How can I be so bold? We need to merely look at where the faithful spend their time. Drive by any gym or baseball field on a Sunday morning, or simply look at how empty the churches are. Their pajama shirts say “Faith” or “Jesus and coffee” and then they turn on Netflix and blithely violate the third Commandment to keep the Lord's day holy. How can these faithful be so bold? Easily. It's because we don't really believe in the idea of “sacred”. They have been programmed. When nothing is sacred, everything is sacred. When everything is sacred, nothing is sacred. This is why we can believe that laying on a couch and thinking about God for a split second is as good as going to church and spending one hour with God. This is the great flattening that has occurred. This bait-and-switch that occurred is exactly as Dewey wanted. We say “God” but smirk inside. The pioneers of America who lacked internal combustion engines and lacked Netflix and youth sports, somehow found the energy to saddle up or walk to church. The test of our time - a test that appears to have been failed - is that we have incredible ease in getting to church, yet we choose not to. The number one reason people hate Christianity today is because of hypocritical Christians. And so do I. What a scandal it is to see a believer who speaks the language of devotion and piety but whose actions suggest otherwise. This is why people roll their eyes at Catholics that sin on Saturday night and go to confession on Sunday morning (actually, few Catholics go to confession now, and therefore should not even be receiving the Eucharist, but that's for another episode). The hypocrisy scandalizes and drives people away. We all hate a hypocrite. So did Jesus. The problem is that we are all hypocrites, no matter how holy, perceived or otherwise. The hypocrites once drove me away, but I will never let that happen again. Why? Because I'm one of them. And as I frequently like to quote: “The church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum of saints.” The church and its doctrine and sacraments and liturgy provide the path to remembering this. If I am confused about this, then righteousness or despair will begin to seep into my thoughts and action, and that is precisely when I've fallen into the trap, where God is on my lips, but not in my heart. This was the goal of John Dewey. To keep God in our mouth, but not in our heart. Once you awaken to this fact, you can get out of the soggy tub and pull the plug to let the dirt drain away. Then you can take action, and get God out of storage once and for all. The great achievement of Dewey and the humanists is the flattening of the sacred. They managed to make all things the same, to make all things sacred, and therefore making nothing sacred. This is the outcome of Unitarianism, which places all religions into the same the psychological basket. There is nothing set apart, nothing sacred, yet we still have the word God on our lips, just as Dewey wanted. And then you live in no-man's-land, the wasteland of T.S. Eliot, because you are saying the word God but living like a humanist. You speak as if you have ultimate meaning, but you don't live it out - hence the emptiness of our modern age. You must make your own meaning then, and this manifests out in a thousand ways, and all of them are dead ends. What is lost with God is ultimate meaning, and the vacuum is felt, the void, the onslaught of meaninglessness that drives the pursuit of self-destruction and self-salvation. Why? Because if we cannot find meaning we must either escape the problem or solve the problem. You can go toward nihilism like the French philosophers or you can go toward the will-to-power like the German philosophers. A third option, compliments of Karl Marx, is that you get to become the savior of the world. In all three of these outcomes, you can still say the word “God” and the word can mean absolutely nothing to you while you speak it. That's the state we are in today. God is everywhere in our speech and nowhere in our actions. By design, most of us live out lives that have nothing to do with Christ. Only when we come close to the edge of a cliff and look down do we look up. With God put into storage, we will go dust the idea off when feeling nostalgic or lost. When we are in a period of adjustment, between pursuits, we will look to God. But the moment a new distraction or experience or partner or job arrives, God goes back into storage. We only want God when we recognize the need for a real savior. We only want Jesus on the cross when we need forgiveness. Christ is treated like a 401K fund, where we look at the cross like a number of dollars that will save us in our old age, after we are done sinning. The penitent thief on the cross, who is promised entrance to paradise, is our secret wish for ourselves. It's the get-out-of-jail free card on our death bed, and the card that allows us to live as we wish today, so that we can ignore everything Christ said before that moment on the cross. Most interesting, however, is that I hear self-professed Christians saying, “That doesn't sit well with me,” regarding the penitent thief's late change of heart in Luke 22. In reality, those of us with the name of God on our lips but whose actions lack follow-through should be begging and hoping that the salvation of the “Good Thief,” St. Dismas, will be a possibility for us, too. We rack and stack up mortal sin after mortal sin and ignore the sacrament of Confession, and at the same time cast our eyes down at others for their sins. We should be lucky if the same mercy is shown for our own hypocrisy that we ignore.Any encroachment of traditional religion into the public sphere bothered me. I was wary of any form of Christianity creeping back into my life. In my mind, I thought, “Christians just can't leave anything alone. They just have to shove it down our throats at every opportunity.” I felt like the Grateful Dead's song Truckin', where Jerry Garcia sings about getting busted on Bourbon Street, ratted out by nosey do-gooders who called the police: “They just can't let you be.” The irony is how the flip has happened, where modernism is shoved down our throats. The old religion of hearing a one-hour Sunday message (plus maybe an hour on Wednesday nights) stood no chance against the full blast 40 hours a week of public schools preaching mainline humanism. We have been indoctrinated, without a doubt. We have been indoctrinated to modernism. If you want to be free, you have to take the first step in opposition of the current. The new rebel is not the person that embraces sex, drugs, and rock-and-roll. It's the person who embraces chastity, temperance, and silence. The new rebel is the one who un-moderns himself. I suspect as the result of a century of humanist education comes to an end, the next Abraham will be called out of California, the next St. Anthony of Egypt will find his way to the desert, and a new St. Benedict will find his way to a cave, and we will rediscover all that has been lost and lied about. This is the way it happens. It always has happened this way. The world tries to crush God, to remove him from all public spaces, and God seems to go away, and then he returns. Jesus also went to the desert. He also went to a tomb. But he returned. He is returned now. He is as alive as ever, and will once again be the healer that we are looking for.

In it we cover: (00:00:00) – Introduction (00:03:00) – From business building at OXO and SoulCycle to becoming an accidental investor (00:07:58) – The compelling white space of the senior market (00:19:22) – Focusing on seed to Series A and launching incubations (00:22:15) – Consumer behavior and employment opportunities in the aging population (00:29:16) – Maximizing today vs. planning for tomorrow (00:37:18) – Housing opportunities for the senior market (00:43:15) – Ending ageism, focusing on preventative healthcare, and embracing multiple careers ABOUT PRIMETIME PARTNERS Abby Miller Levy is Co-founder and Managing Partner of Primetime Partners, which is a new venture capital firm that specializes in AgeTech, or investing in technology around the future of how we age. As you'll hear in this interview, the latest data and statistics around aging are almost too hard to believe. Here are just two data points. As of 2007, it's expected that about half of all babies born will live to be over 100 or become what are called centenarians. And by 2024, it's expected that workers aged 55 or older will represent a full 25% of the nation's workforce, with the fastest annual growth rates among those aged 65 and older. And yet, before Primetime Partners was founded by Abby Levy and venture legend Alan Patricof of Greycroft and Apax Partners fame, there were no venture firms focused solely on aging and enabling the technologies, products, and businesses we'll need to support an aging population.
In Episode #135, we deconstruct Abby Miller Levy's peak performance playbook—from their favorite book to the tiny habit that's had the biggest impact on their life. Abby is the Managing Partner and Co-Founder of Primetime Partners. We cover the hundred year life, lessons from Alan Patricof, and the nonlinear career path. “If you were guaranteed a hundred year life, what would you do differently? How would you think about it? How would you plan for it? How would you live it?” – Abby Miller Levy EPISODE GUIDE (LINKS, QUOTES, NOTES, AND BOOKS MENTIONED) https://www.danielscrivner.com/notes/abby-levy-playbook/ FULL TEXT TRANSCRIPT https://www.danielscrivner.com/notes/abby-levy-playbook-transcript/ CHAPTERS In this episode, we deconstruct Abby Miller Levy's peak performance playbook—from her favorite book to the tiny habit that's had the biggest impact on her life. In it we cover: (00:00:00) – Introduction (00:02:29) – The Hundred Year Life (00:03:57) – Lessons from McKinsey, OXO, and Alan Patricof (00:07:09) – Zeroing in on the key issues and leaping into VC (00:15:15) – Investing as an operator, and the nonlinear career path (00:19:02) – Expertise vs. generalism ABOUT ABBY LEVY Abby Miller Levy is Co-Founder and Managing Partner of Primetime Partners, which is a venture capital firm that Abby co-founded with venture legend Alan Patricof of Greycroft and Apex Partners fame. Primetime specializes in what they call AgeTech, or technology around the future of how we age. Before founding Primetime Partners, Abby had an epic career. She worked at McKinsey. She's worked at OXO. She led growth at SoulCycle, and she even co-founded Thrive with Ariana Huffington.
Even if you haven't made it to one of the workouts at SoulCycle, you've certainly heard of the legendary spin classes by now. The boutique fitness brand that turned stationary bikes into an elevated ritual in exercise now encompasses nearly 100 locations nationwide. At the helm since 2020, Evelyn Webster has cultivated a culture of openness and transparency among her colleagues. Coming from the UK after a successful career in media, she is working hard to ensure SoulCycle studios embody the same welcoming atmosphere they've had since day one, keeping the community engaged with the brand as it scales. Even now, when Evelyn needs to reset, you can find her sweating it out on a bike, undergoing the mental and emotional shift that only the most stellar workouts can achieve. Thanks for listening!

DescriptionPodcast Rodeo Show: Reviews and First Impressions of Your Podcast A podcast about the modern-day “cults” we all follow. Hosts Isa Medina and Amanda Montell ask the culty questions we're all wondering… Do you think SoulCycle is a cult? What about Elon Musk stans? Or the Royal Family? What about spiritual influencers? Is Instagram itself a cult? We're Sounds Like A Cult, a podcast that analyzes a different zeitgeisty group every week to try and answer the big question: This group sounds like a cult, but is it really? And if so, how bad is it? What I Liked About This EpisodeThe intro using listener voices was different and it sets the stage of "Do I agree or disagree with these people?." I did like that once all the housekeeping was done, you got right to the point and answered the questions I was thinking. What I Thought Could Use Some PolishingIsa needs some mic technique training. Get a pop filter or windscreen. Three advertisements (4 if you count patreon) had me right on the edge of pressing next. In the end I wanted to hear more.

Technically we ALL have a funnel for our business, meaning the way we're getting leads into our business and selling, but if your funnel is actually working as well as it could is another question that we're diving into today. I'm chatting with the brilliant Alexa Cawley, owner of Forever Friday Consulting. She's the host of the Friday Society Podcast and is a marketing consultant for wellness brands. She's also a member of Breakthrough Brand All Access, she's a 2x EM Shop customer, and is a long time listener of this podcast. By the way, I LOVE having guests who already listen to this show because they always bring exactly what you all need to hear. In today's episode, we're diving into marketing funnels, and specifically 5 pieces of a successful one and the order in which they come, how to do your own funnel, and so much more. Alexa does an excellent job specifically speaking to new business owners in this as well, and we talk about funnels both from the perspective of service businesses and product businesses. So whichever you are, you'll hear how to do a funnel for BOTH. Other things we discuss worth nothing: - Marketing practices and the stereotype around “bro marketer” funnels - What's not working anymore and what works in today's world with funnels and marketing - The current SoulCycle and Peloton battle and some great marketing tips we can learn there - Marketing lessons Alexa learned working with big wellness brands like Lululemon and SoulCycle - And we go through all those steps to a successful funnel If this topic interests you and you want to go deeper, this month in my membership, we're also talking about email marketing.

Hello Echelots! Sheldon brings a festive shirt to the Friday recording... after he basically forgot they needed to record this week. Oops. Mere was on time so her podcast performance review is saved once again! Amusement park rides are still fun, but old person anxiety starting to creep in. But until it takes over - roller coasters! Florian Brennecke is today's guest. He's an Echelon instructor in the Frankfurt studio and he just might be the hardest man in Germany! He's got his own full client base, a gym featuring muscle stimulation, and plans for more! We learn how Florian went from struggling just to make ends meet to being a business owner and Echelon instructor. Such a ball of energy and someone who truly loves engaging with the community - but he did pull a fast one on me (you'll hear about it in the episode). Find Florian on Instagram @florian.brennecke SO much industry news with the meditation and mental wellness industry struggling where a bit market player, Calm, is laying off a good number of folks in an effort to right size and focus. The industry as a whole is taking a beating as they decline from the boom of mental health support desired during the pandemic. Soul Cycle closing 25% of their studios..."f**k it, let's shut down" I guess. Thennn... there's Peloton. Just brutal earning's report. $1.2B lost in the quarter... massive cash burn still. Subs only up net 4000... ouch. Equipment margins, MINUS 98% (I'm still trying to figure out how that is even possible). The are now selling the Bike, Guide, and some accessories on Amazon and offering do it yourself options... much to the chagrin to a lot of their people that think that is "cheap". I honestly think it's pretty smart. Hey, Echelon has been doing that for ages! Tons of Echelon news, 6AM EST 30 minute classes coming back, expanding music library (Bieber, Joan Jett, and the Stones!), more Broadway etc. We will be seeing more "Tour de Echelon" like events around the "big 6 marathons" and rowing events that correspond to events like Head of the Charles! Meredith has some fun names and a bunch of shout outs... including one for a certain podcast host! We wrap up with results of the sandwich Snackdown! and kick off another with "When should we allow fall treats to start?" By Bikkkkkkkkkke!
When Mission Chinese opened in New York in a crowded, slightly dank subterranean space on Orchard Street a decade ago, the food world collectively paused to praise the inventive and fully out-there cooking of a young chef named Danny Bowien. On this episode we catch up with Danny to hear about the up-and-down decade that followed and what it was like to recently close his last Mission location in NYC. We also talk about the 2020 Grub Street article that painted a portrait of abuse in the kitchens run under his watch. And we dive into his great new cookbook, Mission Vegan. This episode is a long time coming, and we hope you enjoy it.More from Danny Bowien:Goodbye to Mission Chinese Food and Its Complicated NYC Legacy [Bon Appetit]The Nightmare Inside Mission Chinese Food [Grub Street] Danny Bowien on the Hard-Partying Chef Life—Now Fueled by SoulCycle and Spirulina [Vogue]Twice-Cooked Bacon is the Best Kind of Bacon [Saveur]Buy: Mission Vegan

The parallels between our fitness spaces, corporations and our political landscape are becoming more apparent by the day. Rhetoric, divisiveness, performative allyship, and bullying are all elements at play once the motivation to "win" supersedes our espoused value system. It there where both dissonance and decision making meet. Accountability in this landscape comes in many forms and it is up to us (as leaders, instructors, community members, etc) to determine how that shows up to influence the correct outcomes. In this episode, Mark and Ashley discuss the parallels, their own journeys within the spaces and an associated call to action.Support the show
The Trump administration's “zero tolerance” policy split up thousands of families. The government still can't find the parents of at least 150 kids, says the Atlantic's Caitlin Dickerson. The Inflation Reduction Act incentivizes farmers to make their land more sustainable and use less greenhouse emissions. A decade from now, California agriculture will likely scale down. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is still struggling to repair its image a year after the LA Times revealed that the group had no Black members. SoulCycle is planning to close roughly a quarter of its gyms, while Peloton is laying off 800 employees. With inflation, people are choosing cheaper exercise options and diversifying their workouts.
WeWork co-founder Adam Neuman is back and riding a brand new unicorn… His startup Flow is already worth $1B (and it's just a website).

Meredith and Sheldon take vacations about as far apart in the continental US as is possible. Sheldon sees Orcas and giant trees, Meredith sees Echelon people and waterfalls! There was coffee, wine, hiking and fun to be had. Jaime Wilbanks is today's guest and we learn a lot about how she has been through some challenges including shifting her life from Nextflix and couch to rowing/running/fitness phenom! From teaching toddlers to coaching some of the toughest workouts at Echelon, Jaime delivers the goods and gives a fantastic interview. Find Jaime at FB and IG: jaime_fitforlife SO much connected fitness news. Layoffs come to Tonal, F45, and Peloton, along with Peloton planning to greatly reduce retail presence and have raised the prices several hundred dollars for the Bike+ and Tread products. Soul Cycle offers a very odd offer of 47 classes in trade for your Peloton bike.... I then quiz Mere on what would it take to give up her Echelon. Tempo to offer personal training packages. Fitbit removing capability to synch an actual computer with product - mobile only. Echelon has a number of things in August including 8/22 Goodbye Summer, End of Summer Pitbull party, and September is BATMAN month! Sale going on now with 22% off, and Labor Day promotions to come.

In this new “Bishop Barron Presents” discussion, Bishop Barron sits down with bestselling author Tara Isabella Burton to discuss her new book, Strange Rites: New Religions for a Godless World. Burton argues that while younger generations are supposedly the most secular according to surveys, they're actually notably religious—it's just that they have adopted strange new religions. She claims today's Americans are embracing a kaleidoscopic panoply of spiritual traditions, rituals, and subcultures, from astrology and witchcraft to SoulCycle and the alt-right. In search of the deep and the real, they are finding meaning, purpose, ritual, and communities in ever-newer, ever-stranger ways. In their conversation, Bishop Barron and Tara discuss topics such as: Are people actually moving away from religion? The unaffiliated The retreat into self Christian truth claims Why people leave organized religion And numerous other topics Links Strange Rites: New Religions for a Godless World by Tara Isabella Burton Redeeming the Time: Gospel Perspectives on the Challenges of the Hour by Bishop Barron NOTE: Do you like this podcast?
