This morning I faced down one of my long-standing fears: spinning class. For the uninitiated, spinning is indoor cycling on a special stationary bike, in a group setting, with an instructor that talks you through moves designed to simulate riding on different terrains. It is touted as one of the highest calorie burn workouts you can do, and the creator, Johnny G, has achieved cult-like status among his ‘disciples’. He invented spinning as a convenient and quick way to train for races – and with the cold weather coming on, I need to find an alternative to outdoor cycling to keep up with my triathlon training.
I have to admit, I eventually caved and bought cycling shoes…and loved them. They’re not even Kate Spade!
So tell me – what’s holding you back from trying something new? Share in the comments!
