I gave Swerve Fitness a try

As a self identified Flywheel addict, you might ask why I went to another spin studio. Answer: To chase new student intro deals!

Swerve is near my office and they offer a buy one get one free offer for first time students. I’m open to trying new things, especially when they are offered at a discount and situated in my zone of existence.

I actually originally booked a class for Monday morning but woke up feeling not so hot. I called right before to cancel and they were super accommodating. I finally did make it to a class after work on Wednesday and I was very happy I did.

Every time I worked out last week (11/8- 11/14)

Oh hello, it’s later in the week than usual, but I’m here with the recap. Knowing I’ll be writing these makes me feel accountable during the week. As always, I’d love if you told me about your week in workouts in the comments!

Do you have an active lifestyle, or do you just workout?

Is being healthy a discrete part of your day, or the way you approach your day?

I’ve written before about how much I love the Torqboard at Flywheel. It gives any rider a sense of how effective her ride was in terms of caloric burn or general exertion. Spending 45 minutes in a dark room listening to EDM is a really specific way to get your heart going. Part of the reason I think people like spinning is that its contained. You spin for 45 minutes, sweat yourself into a red-faced mess and then you can cross “workout” off your to-do list. I have no hard feelings about this. This is me most days.

But a spin class is a mere 45 minutes so to paraphrase Sonny from Grease “What are you suppose to do with the rest of the 23 hours and 15 minutes of the day?
