My Experience at Ryde Houston + My New BFF: Laura Mercier

A few weeks back a friend lured me to Ryde, a spin studio in the River Oaks shopping center. My workout routine consists of the Camden Greenway fitness center and my Jazzercise class so I thought, “What the heck? I’ll consider trying spin class,” but I still wasn’t convinced…

…Until she came in with the clincher: Ryde was partnering with Laura Mercier for a makeup demonstration party complete with refreshments, goody bags, and champagne. She had me at Laura.

I went to Ryde that day with zero expectations of how I would like spinning. I left with Jell-o legs and a new true love. Spinning was one of the most fun, adrenaline-filled, heart-pumping workouts I’ve ever done! I 100% recommend spin and Ryde to anyone seeking a new workout in the Houston area.

My favorite part: The lights were kept low 90% of the time during the routine, so I was able to focus on the class leaders and my own progress rather than worry if everyone was staring at my butt (because you know we all think that.)

Knowing throughout my workout that Laura Mercier makeup was waiting for me was a great carrot at the end of the stick. The makeup demonstration was so much fun! I was wowed that the Smooth Finish Foundation Powder and Silk Creme Oil-Free Foundation were able to combat my sweaty face and make me look flawless! In the goody bag, I met my new best friend: the Laura Mercier Foundation Primer. I put this on my face every morning and my makeup goes absolutely nowhere throughout the day.

Cookies, champagne, and makeup! What more could you ask for post-workout?

My day at Ryde in Houston was a great day of firsts for me. If you’ve never tried a spin class, from one cookie-loving, un-athletic kid to another: Try it. You will love it. And if you don’t, then you will appreciate it when you see the results (my Jell-o legs shortly turned to hello legs). Ryde is easy to get to for any of Camden’s Houston Inner-Loop Communities, especially Camden Post Oak apartments practically down the street!

Who knew that working out and makeup would be such a great combo?
