confession of cycling convert


If you’re here, on this website, chances are you already spin.  But maybe you’re just thinking about indoor cycling.  And maybe you are scared.  I wouldn’t blame you.  The first time I came, I was scared to death.  I was also embarrassed.  Would I really be able to take this seriously?  A preacher-woman yelping over throbbing pop to sprint like I meant it?  To “get to the top” of an entirely fictional hill?

Well, I emerged a little queasy, sweaty from eyelashes to forearms to knees, and a TOTAL CONVERT!! 

There is no better way than indoor cycling to plunge directly into your body, fast  fast  fast!  The music blurs your thoughts right out, endorphins flood your bod, suddenly Katy Perry’s the most meaningful thing you ever heard, you truly believe this wild-child on the bike up front, shouting that you can do anything.  You can!  It’s a beautiful feeling – cinematic, inspiring and fun.  Not to mention the calories burned and the myriad muscles strengthened, including the all-important heart!  

Even if you expected all that, nothing can prepare you for the post-spin high!  It’s better than three beers in your backyard.  Or whatever floats your boat.  It’s better!  Suddenly, you find yourself craving that high, not being able to wait to get back in that saddle! Melodramatic, I know, but so is indoor cycling!  Melodramatic, fun, wild, highly addictive and crazy good for you! 

So even if the first time you almost barf, the next day your butt’s on fire, and you have shame-memories of losing yourself in the Rhianna, I know you’ll be back.  You’ll need another hit.  Before you know it, the pain will fade, you’ll wonder how this ever made you queasy, but the endorphins never quit!  Basically, the perfect high! J.T.
