Cycling Class

Recommended Posts

I go Spinning once a week! I really like it, but yes, at first, it's tough and it seems like the longest class EVER!! My butt does get sore but you get more used to it after a while. Wear tight workout pants so you don't get a wedgie! wink.gif Once I started Spinning I really started losing weight, it really helps melt away the pounds! I think my class is less intense than some, the instructor is in her 50's, but she's fabulously fit!

I do spinning class once a week too. Definately wear really fitted pants...something that won't stick to the seat (nylon) is best....your booty will feel like hell the next day....but it is such a high after the class I promise. the first time I tried spin I kept saying I was going to quit every 5 minutes or so....thinking there was no way I was going to make it 1 hour...I kept pushing and was so proud of myself at the end....it hurts...but very rewarding when you finish! Have Fun!

So, I went to the orientation class yesterday -- and after it was over the instructor said a regular class was starting and who wanted to stay.

 

LOL -- EVERYONE got up and was like NO WAY!!! smile120.gif But I decided to stick it out! The instructor let me use her padded seat cover and it did help a bit but OMG my ass is ssoo sore and that was the hardest part -- having to sit on that friggin seat!

 

But I did the entire 45 minute class after the 30 minute orientation (whcih was really only about 10 minutes of actual usage). Boy do I feelit today -- but it was definitely a great workout. it will be a nice one to switch up my regular cardio on the treadmill, ellipital or ARC climber so that I don't get too bored. I am definitely investing in either the padded seat cover or the padded shorts though!

 

Thanks ladies for not letting me chicken out! It was a tough workout but I am trying to stay focused on the prize of looking HOT in my bikini come April!!!

I'm so glad you did it!!! Seriously after you do it a few times you will love it and you will see such a difference in your legs and butt!!

 

You burn mega calories when you do it too!!

 

The seat was definetly the worst part of the first class, it was so uncomfortable! but it's funny, after a couple times doing it, the seat didn't even bother me anymore. I never even had to get a padded seat. I think its just that first initial getting used to sitting on the hard seat and then your body is okay!

 

Good Job!

A friend of mine goes to the same gym as me and said she goes to the cycling class and that I should try it...so it's on thursday nights and I guess it's so popular that you have to get there like 30 min prior to get a spot! That's annoying..but it's worth check out according to all of you.

 

Great job Tami for sticking it out and going...

Jill -- goot to know the seat aches will go away! Ack! I looked forward to the standing climb position, even thoug it was harder than sitting, but at least my butt wasn't aching. lol

 

Michelle, Yeah, you have to sign up for the classes ahead of time b/c they are always full at my gym. You can sign up for 2 at a time. they have morning spin classes 2x a week, one on Thursday nights and one on Sunday afternoons. They evidently are all always full.

 

I'm going to try to do the Thursday or Sunday class once a week.

Girl, if you want to kick your butt into shape, than cycling is the way to go. It is intense, but it is usually on 45 minutes, and you can rest when needed. I think any group class is great motivation. Grab those biker shorts, and think "hot bikini bod", "hot bride", "sweat those poinds off"!!

I love SPINNING! After a week of it you will get used to the seat. It's the only workout I can do in the morning that keeps me motivated. Especially if you have a good instructor...It really tones you up..

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
