It has been so long since I started teaching spin or cycle or all terrain – whatever you call it – that I can’t remember if it is 6 or 7 or 8 years now. Today I taught a 7 am class with a special Valentine’s theme and fondly reminisced about the first class I taught in that room on Valentine’s Day.
Back then I had to burn my classes on to a CD and had little note cards that told me what I should be doing for song. Now I have thousands of songs on an iPod Touch and don’t know what I am going to be doing til the moment before I do it.
I do love teaching – it is such a high to watch 20+ people all working so hard while the music is going. I hope to be celebrating my 25th anniversary as I grow older and hopefully stronger.
If you are a rider or and instructor and have music or drills to recommend please leave a comment!
Happy belated Spinniversary! Where do you teach? I ride at http://www.rpmstudio.ca/
I am Goodlife but started with Bally’s all those years ago. There is a Quad not too far from me that I might try soon. Are you an outdoor rider?
I am. I’m a roadie. How about you?
Sadly no, I am purely indoor right now. Might branch out this summer!
