Last night I had my first spinning experience. I’ve been meaning to try spinning for just about ever now but never got around to it. I love working out and I love group fitness classes and I especially love a first-class-for- free deal so I was super excited to try out Flywheel .
Because I can’t do anything by myself, I begged Linds to come for me to watch and copy the entire class so I looked like I knew what I was doing. I don’t think it worked because I didn’t know how to do anything…
People, the studio is seriously SO cool. FlyWheel is possibly the hippest fitness studio I’ve ever been too. There’s music blasting and the classes are done in the dark which I thought was awesome (especially since it prevented me from being super competitive in class) I told Linds I felt like I was going to DA CLUB. Let me make this clear: this was not da club.
The class itself was pretty challenging but the energy was so high and the instructor was so awesome (I left wanting to marry her) that the entire class flew by. Sprints, hills and arm-work were all incorporated into a jam-packed 45 minutes and I left a sweaty mess. Having a sweatfest in another Chicaogo studio can be checked off my list.
To be honest, I didn’t fall in love with spinning. Don’t get me wrong, I had a lot of fun and would go to a class every now and then but it probably isn’t the thing for me (and it’s super expensive). However, if you do love spinning I feel like Flywheel is probably the best studio to go because it really is DA BOMB. My favorite part about the place was it let you pick a name to show your progress on the screen in the front of the class. I picked Voldemort and Linds picked Dumbledore. Every time our names were on the screen I cracked up (and if you’re wondering Dumbledore won, ugh). I would definitively recommend at least giving it a try, especially if you go with a friend!
Speaking of friends, did you know I was friends with Santa Claus? I didn’t either but apparently Linds has been moonlighting as Santa Claus after work. Do you see that bag?! Apparently Christmas is coming early this year.
