• Spinning

    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?

    It too may help you relive some good ol’ memories … but in a brand new way!
