Victoria Justice: SoulCycle freaks me out

Victoria Justice likes to feed off other people’s energy when exercising.

The former Nickelodeon star has a great figure which is the envy of her fans. But the 22-year-old admits it doesn’t come from participating in the exercise class made famous by the likes of Demi Lovato, Victoria Beckham and Oprah Winfrey.

“I tried SoulCycle once but it was too intense for me. I don't like how your feet are stuck to the pedals — it freaks me out," she confessed to Teen Vogue.

SoulCycle is a high energy static bike class which is known for its passionate instructors and up-tempo music. But while it’s not Victoria’s idea of fun, she does love exercising to music in a group situation.

“I love dancing, so taking any kind of class is really fun for me,” she added. “Being able to feed off other people’s energy and make it a community thing is amazing.”

However the Victorious star is hoping to get out of a gym and into the open air to exercise in the near future.

“I really want to start hiking. That's probably what I'll do next,” she said.

Victoria does her best to make time to exercise regularly each week. But she has admitted in the past that it can be hard to maintain her routine when she’s on the road.

“When you’re touring, I can’t stress how important it is to stay in shape. I do a one hour set of running around on stage singing and dancing. You need to be in shape to do that or it will be extremely difficult,” she previously told Healthy Hollywood. “I work out (cardio, weights, and Zumba) before I go on tour and try to do as much as I can in between.”
