15 Thoughts of a Fitness Instructor During Spin Class and Weds Spin Playlist.

So we’re getting off the run chat a little today to talk about a few THOUGHTS I have while teaching a spin classI I thought this would be fun. I have to say I absolutely LOVE teaching fitness classes and it is definitely something I thought that I’d never love as much as I do now! There are so many perks and it is great to help people achieve their fitness goals. I’m usually thinking about 888 things while teaching (multi-tasking at its finest) but…here are just a few.

1. Crazy day at the 9 to 5. Totally about to de-stress in class right about now. Cycle therapy. Kind of like running (or dancing) except on the bike.

2. I’m not sure that the handful of almonds and banana I ate earlier as a pre workout snack was enough. I’m actually starving.

3. Okay…it’s only one hour. Just get through it one song at a time.

4. Swing of caffeinated beverage (usually iced tea or coffee) okay. Game face on. Now I am ready.

5. That guy’s seat is totally TOO LOW to be riding that bike. Doesn’t he know that? I feel like all people should automatically know this.

6. Go help a brother out. Poor guy. He totally looks like he needs help with his bike setup.

7. She does too. And now she is telling me that her crotch hurts. I know girl. It happens to all of us. The seat sometimes can be just not comfortable. You’ll get used to it. Get those crotch/butt muscles strong and tight and you won’t feel it.

8. Tell her that, without actually telling her that.

9. Alright. Time to spin!

10. Warm up song…swag on. Let’s go.

11. Time to sprint! Crank up the resistance.

12. That girl totally has her GAME FACE on. She is killing it. Werk.

13. Big a$$ hill climb. Yes, I want you to look like you are about to die. That is the whole point.

14. Class complete. Cool down and stretch. Done and done. Yes…you burned all of the calories. Because that is what I do. I’m a murderer/calorie killa.

15. Instructor selfie once everyone leaves…just because.

And without further ado…let’s get to the spin list! These songs are great for running too! Find me on Spotify and check out where I’m teaching next if you’re local!

Hellloooo there!!! It is a beautiful day in the neighborhood…I was able to get my hiney out of bed and run in this crazy Texas heat and humidity. So hallelujah and thank you Jesus for that. The sunrise did not disappoint…

I also thought I would do a little humble bragging on myself because I just completed the Strava June distance challenge in monthly mileage!! Over 200k miles for the month and counting. Before June is even over. I actually really don’t like bragging on myself but lately I’ve been trying to start doing things that make me uncomfortable. So yeah, here you go. Ha.

So you know what day of the week it is…Weds spin playlist day! Hope you enjoy. And check out where I’m teaching classes next if you’re local.

What I Love About Being a Fitness Instructor and Weds Spin Playlist.

Hey there! Are you ready for your weekly dose of jams!? Well I am here to give it to ya today!! These songs are great for spin class (hello my fellow instructors), running or any high intensity workout. Hope you enjoy!

But first – let’s talk about a few things I love about being a spin instructor! It’s definitely a side hustle for me (for those of you who are new here or unaware) but it is one that I absolutely love! So thought I would share.

I love how it inspires me to stay on top of my game with my fitness. Even after I’ve done a hard trail or road race, I know that the bike is always waiting for me and makes for excellent active recovery after running.
I enjoy connecting with the individuals in my classes and inspiring them to workout. It is always great when you have usuals return again and again that love your classes. I’ve been able to see my classes build too over the years and I tell you what that is such a rewarding thing to see. They inspire me as well in and outside of the cycle studio. I love watching people win and excelling in all areas of health and fitness.
I LOVE to rock out to music and have FUN/let loose (especially after a stressful work day) on the bike! I feel like you can definitely have FUN and work hard all at the same time. It’s great when those two things can come together.
Hey…it is also a great perk to be able to work out at a major gym for absolutely free. I used to pay like $50 a month to get the ultimate from my gym and now I get all of that just because I teach classes. I definitely take advantage of it too.

There are so many other reasons but hey…those are just a few. So if any of you out there are considering teaching classes be it side hustle or full time…just know it is an awesome way to make a little extra money on the side and have fun while doing it.

Speaking of fun…let’s be friends on Spotify! Connect with me on there— where I’m constantly updating workout playlists on a weekly basis!
