Featured 7.25-7.31 | The woman you're looking at right now is 58 years old. I tell you this not to out her, but because it's almost impossible to believe, and certainly something you would never guess by looking her. With a background in the fitness industry that spans nearly four decades and at least as many fitness trends (Calisthenics? Check. Step aerobics? Check.), Ruth Zukerman is no joke. She helped to create the spinning craze as a co-founder of SoulCycle, went on to open Flywheel Sports, bringing indoor cycling to new heights, has two incredible (adult) daughters, and is now writing a book about her life and her business. I'm exhausted just thinking about it, but for Ruth, this is just a day at the office. She's also hysterically funny, insanely beautiful and makes everything she does appear effortless. Without sounding sappy, she is truly one of the most incredible and powerful women I have come across, and she is proof positive that age really is just a number.
Welcome to Ruth's week.
