So you all know by now that we were pretty bummed out and quite upset that the fitness center we belong to canceled two of the four spin classes we go to every week with no notice. We were offered a discount and were told we could use the room and spin bikes when the room is empty. We wanted to try it out last night to see how it might work out for us and although it wasn’t the same as a normal class it was OK. I asked if we could use the sound system to have music but that was not permitted but they did say I could bring in my own ipod player to have music in the room.
I did do a little research early yesterday to see what music that I have in itunes that might work for my own ride so I was able to put together a quick play list for about a 50 minute ride. I even broke the songs down in to Warm Up, Climbing, Sprinting, Jumps and Single Leg Leads. I rocked it and burned 600 calories WOW! I was one sweaty beast LOL
Here is the quickie play list I put together:
-When I Grow Up 4:05
-Pocketful of Sunshine 3:23
-Poker Face 3:57
-The Way I Are 2:59
-It’s Raining Men 5:26
-Don’t Stop the Music 4:27
-Jai Ho 3:42
-Hips Don’t Lie 3:41
-Just Dance 4:02
-I’m Yours 4:03
-Soulmate 3:34 (didn’t have time for this song)
I’ll be taking the ipod player on Sunday and Monday so we have the play list and Kev can spin to it as well (and anyone else who shows up too). There were 4 of us who came in the room to spin on our own last night. I think I will do some more research and put together a few different play lists we can swap out each Sun. and Mon. If you have any suggestions for music or spinning certification info, please feel free to leave a comment. I would really appreciate any help.
Talked to Kev last night about possibly getting our spin certification so we can teach a couples spin class at our favorite Couples resort when we go to Jamaica. We’ll see…but I think that would be a blast.
There was a yogalates (yoga/pilates) class after spinning and I decided Kev gave me the nudge to stay for it since there would have been only one other person in the class (a guy). It was fun and gave me a little taste of what yoga and pilates is as I had never done either before. The instructor said I did well phew! I think pilates would be more my style than yoga but you never know.
I’m off to see what other play lists I can come up with!
you two are so cool.
and so creative.
I love the idea of getting certified to teach spin at the resort!

I thought it would be a great idea too, Carla. We like to have fun don’t we? LOL You know first hand of course.
Love your list! I like doing a flat to Suddenly I See by Kt Tunstall. You can do a great hill climb to Sister Christian by Night Ranger. Single Ladies by Beyonce would be a great jump song.
How fun to teach at the resort. We go to Jamaica often and stay at Sandals resorts. I love Jamaica. Everything about it is appealing to me – the people, the land, the food. Such a great place.
