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!

Random Ramblings and Weds Spin Playlist.

Happy hump day to ya! So since I’m taking a bit of a blogging hiatus tomorrow due to my birthday on Thursday (holla holla!! and HELLO extra long weekend) I thought I would combine my “random thoughts” and Weds spin playlist posts all in one! So you get the best of both worlds. Don’t you love when that happens?? Alright, let’s get to it.

This morning’s run was quite excellent. We were supposed to get a bit of rain but instead it just stayed nice and cool and breezy, lots of cloud cover. Loving the clouds in the sky this morning.

For some reason while working this week I’ve been listening to a lot of reggae music!? I think the Texas sunshine is putting me in an island state of mind. Love this Bob Marley remix.

Now that RHOA is over I am trying to get into a new mindless guilty pleasure show. I still need to finish watching my Beverly Hills ladies. I love Erika Jane & think Dorit is gorgeous but she is an absolute mess. But hey…what is this show even without the MESS? You’ve gotta have the trainwrecks.

Did anyone go see “I Feel Pretty” yet? I actually thought it may be a good movie with a solid message (and I went with my mama) but confession, I fell asleep like 3 times during this movie. I know – it had a good message at its core, but I thought the delivery was a tad basic. They could have gone a little deeper I felt like. But oh well…not sure what I was expecting. Also, Amy Schumer was funnier to me in Trainwreck? I suppose I just wanted the raw inappropriate Schumer. Feel free to disagree with me.

She’s not my favorite anyway but you know what I mean.

You know what I miss? The feel good ROM COM type of movies. When Harry Met Sally…Love Jones (AKA fave of all time) seriously I need to just take a day off to watch old school romantic comedies and would be in heaven.

Without further ado let’s get to this week’s spin playlist! Check me out on Spotify and where I’ll be teaching spin class next in the Dallas area!!!
