Confessions of a Cycle Instructor, Part 3 and Weds Spin Playlist.

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.


You can check out parts 1 and 2 here!

I confess…

-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.

Let’s go for a ride!

  1. We are going to sugar shack today. It’ll be the first time for our little girl. I’m excited for her to see all the animals. PS. I’ve breastfed in the back of the car in a parking lot, so I can only imagine how you feel when you get changed there. Who would have known so many people actually look inside cars ahahaha!

    1. Yes, into teams of 2. Team 1 does a full out sprint while team 2 stands up, once team 1 is finished team 2 goes in. Team 1 will stand up to recover. Back and forth and so on until the last sprint. Then, for the last set they all sprint together in unison until the end of the song.
