Flywheel Spinning

flywheel

O.M.G!!!!!

That should be the title of this post! I can barely walk today let alone sit on my bottom. I have been exploring other workouts all over the metroplex to switch up my workouts. Running and lifting weights is something I love doing but I am also getting older and I can tell gravity is not my friend. As I am typing this, I can feel my muscles just working away throughout my whole body. I have been active my whole life and if there is a class that will make you break a sweat… its a spin class!

I have taken spin classes at LA Fitness and 24 Hour fitness and yes they have kicked my butt but these are geared towards the actual technique and program of cycling. They have technology that actually tracks your ride the entire class so it makes it a little more competitive and realistic like you are actually riding with a crew outside. I did not like watching myself in the mirror slightly struggling halfway through class so I was thankful for the tracking system to view my progress. This made me work even harder ๐Ÿ™‚

I took the class last night at the brand new Flywheel Highland Parkย location. At first I was like “I got this!” (much like the Pure Barre class) but its amazing how you suddenly “Don’t got this!!!!” The warm up was a nice intro into the cycling but once we got started it was serious business. I was already breathing pretty heavy about 15 minutes into class and the sweat was pouring…. The one thing that I LOVED was the music. There is a playlist that goes with each cycling sequence so it slightly felt like I was teaching dance at one point. It is distracting and I need that for any and every workout!

The class was not completely full so you could get a view of other people struggling as much as you but that makes the class more rewarding when you do not feel like you are alone. I left class soaked in sweat and that is a GREAT feeling! I totally recommend this class to everyone especially those that hate the gym. It keeps your workouts interesting and you are allowing yourself to work muscles that sometimes do not get worked with just running or weights. Some of these classes are also offered onย Class Passย where you can sign up and check out hundreds of studios and classes all over DFW! As far as clothing, I did not get a picture of myself before or after (hotmess) but I wore leggings and a tank top. It was pretty comfortable but the only thing I did notice was pants that have a cushion on the rear for the seats. You will be sore the next day from the seat but that is normal.

Recommendation: Bring a towel and a water bottle. You will need them! If you have never taken a spin class before and you are wanting to switch up your workouts, Flywheel is a MUST!

Happy Spinning!!!

  • Flywheel is awesome! Fun studio. Glad you enjoyed.

    I am bias though and think Soul Cycle is even BETTER! I went to the one in D.C. when I was visiting college friends. They need to bring it to the DF dub.

    • Haha… I need to try that one for sure! This class was a workout so I am down for others ๐Ÿ™‚

  • I have always wanted to try a spin class- hear nothing but great things about them!

    • You totally should…. I am definitely going back again ๐Ÿ™‚

  • My friend loves these classes, but I’ve never tried them. I don’t know that I could keep up!

    • I was struggling halfway through but the teacher and music help distract from the burning lol ๐Ÿ™‚

  • This class sounds like something I would love. I will have to look and see if there are spin classes in my area. You have inspired me! ๐Ÿ˜€

    • You should definitely check it out… I am still sore lol ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Wanting to try this so bad! Sounds like so much fun and a real butt kicker!!!

    • You totally should…It is worth the time and money and definitely different than running ๐Ÿ™‚

      • I will!! I actually go to a gym that offers classes like this. Not sure if it’s exactly the same but it’s spin class and I still haven’t gone! Lol

  • This sounds amazing! feeling really sore after a workout can be so, so, so rewarding…

    • I love being sore because you know you really got a good workout! ๐Ÿ™‚
