Trying Something New

I needed to get out of the house so I had my friend/trainer, Lyndsey, sign me up for one of her spinning classes. She teaches a Cycle Strength Intervals (description below) on Thursdays and signed me up.

C.S.I. Cycle.Strength. Intervals.Ready for a challenge? This class will burn fat and build/tone muscle. C.S.I. combines the cardio benefit of SPINNING with the power of strength training. Each class will include intervals on the Spin bike and strength training using weights, TRX and bodyweight. *NEW CLASS

I was definitely excited, but started to get a little nervous. Wednesday night I texted her worried asking what to wear and when she texted me back "a leotard and leg warmers" I knew I was being silly. I met her at Walker Ice and Fitness Center for the class. At this point I was a little nervous, but I was feeling optimistic. I got this. No worries! Ha!

I grabbed a bike (like the one pictured above), a mat, 15 pound weights and was ready to go. The class was a little full with a wide range of people. It wasn't what I was expecting, but I still felt confident. Then we started class. My legs were burning. We then did the strength interval and knew I did not have this!! This was a killer workout!

The facility was great and I love that you can pay $7 to drop-in on a class. It was extremely clean and everyone was nice. I will definitely be back now that I know what to expect. I would like to try her TRX class and Cross Fit at some point this year too.

Have you tried anything new lately? Did you like it? 
Is there anything new you would like to try?


  1. It was awesome to have you there! I'm with you with trying cross fit:) and i want to do more paddle boarding this summer!

    1. You let me know when on Cross Fit. I think I would prefer to go with someone.

  2. Spinning is one heck of a workout!

    1. It was way more of a workout than I was anticipating. I am going to try her bootcamp class tomorrow. We'll see how that goes.
