I had a moment last night. I participated in my first, but not last, spin class at Psycle in Westlake. First off I’m in LOVE! When you hear that a spin class is suppose to challenge you, make you sweat, and have fun at the same time you think people are crazy. But last night proved those crazies right. The music was bumpin’, the sweat was drippin’, and I was workin’!
The instructor knew I was a newbie since I used the new student special. They were friendly and made sure I was set up correctly on the bike, even though I was familiar with the bike.
The atmosphere is great. subtle lighting and loud music. Signing is even encouraged! There is one point toward the end of the class where the lights are completely turned off and only candles are lit. At that point I dropped my head and I did what I was there for. It may be my favorite part of the class.
What I didn’t expect was that the instructor moves 2 candles in front of riders who were giving it all and enthusiastic during the ride. Cool right? Your hard work doesn’t go unnoticed. Well one of those riders was me last night. She welcomed me to Psycle with the candle along with cheers from the other riders.
I started to cry a little at that moment. Well I think I was crying with all the sweat. Either way, I realized what I was there for and how long it took me to get there. I would have never been there 3 years ago if I didn’t start changing my lifestyle.
What’s the point of this post? Motivation for me to keep going mostly. But, I think it’s long over due and a before and present photo montage is in order. I never thought I would be able to do something like this:
