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 songs are you loving for your workouts this week?

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!

Confessions of a Cycle Instructor, Continued and Weds Spin Playlist.

Happy hump day to ya! I’ve got some jams you will love today!! And also a continuation of cycle instructor confessions…just because we can. So let’s get to those…first. BTW you can see parts 1, 2, and 3 here.

Sometimes I do not wear my cycle shoes to teach classes. This is partially because I need new cycle shoes, like yesterday. I have worn my current ones completely out. That’s what happens when you teach classes for 5+ years. and yes, I definitely have gone for a RUN right before class then hopped right on the bike with my running shoes on. No shame.

Yes, you are allowed to throw your hands in the air like you just don’t care, in my class. Or if you’re sexy and you know it, clap your hands. Don’t be shy. I like to have fun and work hard all at the same time.

I like when people look really intense in class-and if it looks like they are faking resistance or being lazy I will call you out. So don’t make me come over there and TURN YOUR KNOB UP. I ain’t a killa but don’t push me.

I also love when the whole class is totally synchronized when we are doing tap backs to the beat. YESSS. My favorite thing ever. It’s like a beautiful orchestra to me.

Without further ado let’s get to the playlist! Enjoy the ride!!
