So one of my New Year’s resolutions is to take more gym classes.
Equinox is known for its stellar classes and for a while now, I have not taken advantage of all they have to offer.
But last night … I went to one of their spin classes.
It was a great change-up to my usual workout!
Spinning has been a big thing in NYC and LA for a couple of years now. I tried it once before … but didn’t love it.
Maybe it has to do with the instructor … the atmosphere… the music … and the timing.
Soul Cycle and Fly Wheel are two big spinning places in NYC and a single class is $32.
Here’s a link to some very interesting thoughts of how and what one cyclist felt when in a spin class.
What was interesting was that at one point during our cycling, they played a song that I used to hear at clubs. And instead, here I was getting a cycling “high”. A HUGE smile spread across my face as sweat dripped down my back … and I peddled even harder.
Taking a look around the darkened cycling studio and the fellow gym rats workin’ it too made me feel a sense of camaraderie … something I never felt when I was a party girl.
So for 2013, why don’t you try a new gym class or a new way of working out?
