about

From the founder of Flywheel and SoulCycle comes a story of perseverance and success.

"Ruth Zukerman is an inspiration. She somehow had a keen sense that indoor cycling was going to be a huge trend and she wasted no time turning it into a lucrative business. I'm among the legions of Flywheel fans who make Ruth's class part of our regular routine. Her energy, enthusiasm and great playlist keeps us spinning and coming back for more." -KATIE COURIC

Ruth Zukerman is the Queen of Spinning: she put the Soul in SoulCycle and the Fly in Flywheel.

Recounting the pivotal moments that helped launch Zukerman as the breakout star of the boutique fitness world, Riding High is a reminder that the greatest success stories often start in the unlikeliest of places.

Ruth Zukerman used her heartache-at the death of her father, the end of her marriage, and the dissolution of her first business partnership with SoulCycle, as the inspiration to reinvent herself. At 51, she founded a new business, the highly successful Flywheel, and built the life she'd always dreamed of. And she did it all while navigating through single motherhood and a business world that is often unkind to women, especially those who wear their hearts on their sleeves.

Riding High is a prescriptive, warts-and-all journey through Ruth's evolution, offering fresh, unexpected business and life lessons to help readers recognize their own potential and channel their passion into success. Part confidante, part mentor, Ruth pulls no punches and holds nothing back.

Ruth Zukerman is the Co-Founder of SoulCycle and Flywheel. She is currently Flywheel's Creative Director and continues to teach several sold-out classes every week nationwide. She lives in New York with her two daughters.

"Ruth Zukerman is an inspiration. She somehow had a keen sense that indoor cycling was going to be a huge trend and she wasted no time turning it into a lucrative business. Her energy, enthusiasm and great playlist keeps us spinning and coming back for more. Ruth has become the heart and soul of the operation because she's got plenty of both! Now if I could just get her to turn down that torque!" -Katie Couric"Ruth is an inspirational figure.She has been unrelenting in achieving her dreams and is committed to using her story to empower others to do the same." -Kyra Sedgwick"[Ruth] has created the most successful and innovative boutique fitness studio in the world. Her relentless drive, energy, and attention to detail continue to make Flywheel the best of the best!" -Shannon Sharpe, former Baltimore Ravens tight end and member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame"In the National Fitness Hall of Fame-whose inductees include everyone from Arnold Schwarzenegger to Richard Simmons, from Joseph Pilates to Jane Fonda-a spot will surely one day be reserved for Ruth Zukerman. Starting with the creation of SoulCycle, and on through her brilliant, more rigorous Flywheel, she has not only helped create two thriving, expanding,profitable boutique exercise companies, but in the process has given rise to a form of exercise-"spinning"-that is at once revolutionary, fun, and eminently sensible. She has created something that changes people's lives, makes them healthier, and gives them a joyful experience all at once." -Joe Nocera, New York Times columnist
