Kelly Ripa Prefers Spinning Class to Private Training

The 'Live with Regis & Kelly' host jokingly said she looks like Peter Pan when working out at SoulCycle - a New York spinning studio with many celebrity clients.

She told her co-host Bryant Gumbel, who filled in for Regis Philbin Friday (10/1):

You would love it.”

"This is different [from cycling], this is really different, this is essentially yoga, weights, pilates, dancing all on a bike.”

Gumbel, who prefers to work out alone, was surprised that Kelly would work out in a group.

I prefer a group mentality,” she said. “I think there’s power in a group, I think the group motivates everybody.

“I think everybody really pulls together, and there’s something sexy about the sound and look of a unified group of people working out.”

“I think they’re aware of your presence and you’re wrong that the guys ain’t checking you out,” Gumbel said.

“No, never! You’ve never seen me work out. I look like Peter Pan,” she said. “The makeup comes off, the hair goes into a bun and the padded bra comes off, and Peter Pan is floating next to you on a bike. I bet you I could spin next to you and you would not know it was me.”

I love Kelly! I met her, and she's really down-to-earth, so it doesn't surprise me that she likes to work out in a group.
