As owner of Carmel’s newly opened SpinCycle studio, Cathy Miller puts her clients through tough indoor cycling workouts—and supplies trendy togs to wear while building up a sweat.
NATALIE BEST: Where did you find these wild Onzie leggings?
CATHY MILLER: A student of mine was wearing them, and I bought a pair online; now I carry them in my boutique inside SpinCycle.
NB: What about outside the gym?
CM: The leggings are so fashion-forward that they can easily be worn for a night out.
NB: Even in the fall?
CM: Pair them with a cozy hooded sweatshirt from Peace Love World and cowboy boots.
NB: Do you have a signature look?
CM: I’m in leggings, tanks, and cowboy boots almost every day. I guess you could say the boots are my signature. A girl has got to put her own personal-style stamp on her look—even if it means being in workout clothes every day.
NB: Who else has cute workout clothes (beyond the mall)?
CM: The Yoga Studio in Carmel and Broad Ripple has great lines: Hard Tail, So Low, and Alternative Apparel.
NB: What advice do you give cycling class first-timers?
CM: That the hardest part is walking through the door. The great thing is, everyone works at their level. It’s so individual—that is the beauty.
