Hey there and happy hump day! I’ve got a rockin’ playlist for your workouts that you will love! Also, today is a good day for a little confessing, am I right? Because fitness instructors are humans too.
-That I change into my workout clothes in the car before teaching class. Yes…my car sometimes is my dressing room. I promise there’s no indecent exposure involved. For the most part.
-I love me a good 90s r&b/hip hop track. Sometimes I will randomly throw some Montell Jordan or Bell Biv Devoe on the playlist, just for fun.
Oh yeah…that goes for love, running, AND cycling. Just saying.
-Often I run and teach spin class on the same day. Actually, right after a marathon…spin is one of my favorite types of active recovery. Take 1 or 2 spin classes (and go easy) after running a marathon and I guarantee you your legs will loosen up in no time.
-My favorite drill right now would probably have to be team sprints. I just love that it’s interactive and my classes really get into it and get all competitive. Good stuff and hard work.
-There’s nothing more exhilarating to an instructor than a cycling room/studio packed full of people. I get seriously pumped up if I am leading a class with more than 20 people in it.
-After class, lately I’ve been loving popping into the dry HOT sauna for a ‘cool down’ session. It makes my muscles and body feel extra relaxed and then I am ready for bed.
And now for my spin cycle playlist of the day! If you are local come check me out at any of the following locations.
