I was recently invited to attend my first ever spin class! My wonderful friend, Angie, was contacted by SoulCycle to host a class! I was invited as one of her guests and I jumped at the chance to try something new. I took a rather long break from trying out new things or at least posting about it, and I’ve wanted to get back into it. Talk about a perfect opportunity!
I carpooled with my wonderful friend, Jenn, which I was very thankful for. She’s been to a class before and was able to help me set up my bike, get my shoes, and find a locker. We had bikes next to each other and having her next to me helped encourage me through the class.
The class was 45minutes long and pretty challenging. My biggest surprise was how uncomfortable the seats on the bikes are. They’re soooooo uncomfortable!!
So, what did I think? I thought it was a ton of fun but also really difficult. I’m not used to that kind of workout so I’m really feeling it now. Since the location is in Seattle I probably wouldn’t go back unless I was invited by a friend and they’re hosting a class. It was a nice change and I’m happy I tried it out but I don’t think it’s the perfect fit for me. Also, my nether-regions really hurt from that darn seat! I have to walk around like a baby with a full diaper. Hopefully, that doesn’t last too long.
Do I recommend trying a spin class? Sure! If you’re interested in trying it I say why the heck not? It’s always nice to try new things.
