Win A Rep1 Bike Jersey And Shorts

In May we will be giving a Rep1 team bike kit away to our most dedicated spinner!  The person who does the most spin classes will receive a Rep1 / Lundin Group / Make-A-Wish jersey and bike shorts!  Not only will you be credited with all those calories burnt but you will also be getting a point every class going towards this competition for free gear.

This contest will restart in June as well!

Riding

So, went riding with Scott on Friday.  Had a good time but realized that after a punishing spin class in the morning all I should do is an easy spin and stretch.  It was a great Vancouver day but the intervals of the class that morning left nothing in the legs.  I also realized I need to get out on my mountain bike more!…  Fat tires rock!

Why Should I Try A Spinning Class?

When considering participating in a spin class, almost everyone’s initial thought is: “I am not fit enough to last a full hour in a hardcore spin class.” To this statement, we say: “Everyone had to start somewhere!”

Spin classes are designed to be entertaining and all-inclusive. All participants are in charge of their hour, and this applies to the resistance used, the speed worked, and the various options given for all individuals’ differing fitness levels.

The main reasons you should make it a 2013 goal to try a spin class are:

#1- Entertainment: An hour of working out on your own feels much longer than an hour. An hour in a spinning class, where you are told what to do and are guided by a trained instructor, is a much more enjoyable and “quick” workout!

#2- Community Atmosphere: Everyone works together to get through the ride and finish the hour. Cheering and laughter are highly encouraged…and we all know you Rep1ers know how to be heard!

#3- Music and Energy: The hour is packed with up-beat, unique, and motivating music!

#4- Education: Learn how to set up your bike and how to position your body when cycling. These skills can be extended to recreational outside cycling, or even to other daily activities.

#5- Your Hour: Make attending a spinning class an appointment, much like a meeting for work, and give yourself that hour to relax and focus on yourself!

Your first class is free so what are you waiting for??

Spin

Soaking wet and windy on Saturday; trying to put in 100km on my bike.  Made it 46km before hitting a hot shower.  Yesterday, I taught an hour spin class, burned some serious calories, led 10 other people down the same path, and stayed dry… sort of, I was soaked in sweat.  I could see the rain outside from the instructors bike and was enjoying being indoors.

Stay dry and get your riding intervals and base in; come spin!
