So today I delved into the world of spin class! I'm not really sure how I got swindled into this experience. Something that started with a late night email on Facebook generally asking what was going on Sunday, and then there I was; sneakers strapped in, going to third base with a bicycle seat surrounded by some people seriously excited about riding their bike nowhere. So here was my take away, do what you want with this information...
Lesson 1-Do not stay up til 3am kissing a cute boy and drinking wine the evening before class.
Lesson 2-Bring Tums and ginger candies
Lesson 3-Check your self esteem at the door...see Lesson 2.
Lesson 4-This is not a house of ambition; coming in too strong...see Lesson 2.
Lesson 5- Immediately take note of which is closer, an exit or the bathroom, in case you need to vomit wine and dinner from last night...see Lesson 2.
Lesson 6- Like high school, same rules apply; head straight to back row! Here you will find other like-minded slackers who find mediocrity is acceptable at certain things; A "C" student is a passing student.
Lesson 7-Avoid eye contact with the instructor! This Medusa of a woman will be looking for the eye contact, especially when you are fumbling with your tums and ginger candy.
Lesson 8- Class is 80 minutes so feel free to take your time parking and stroll in 10-15 minutes late. Enter in rushed and excited and let out a "Grrr! Parking!"
Lesson 9-When it's time to stretch, STRETCH. Guaranteed you just used muscles you have never used even if you always are on top! STRETCH!
Lesson 10-Make no plans to see the cute boy until days after as you just had a wild afternoon with a bicycle seat spanning both holes and see Lesson 9.
So to sum it up! I loved it and I can't wait to go back!! Much thanks to To Tammy and Velocity Cycles, West Palm Beach. See you next Sunday!
