I hate spinning class.
That said, I started my group fitness training certification class this past weekend and I am loving it. It's very physically demanding but it's the most fun I've had in a while. I am beginning to think that my future really is in the fitness and nutrition field because I love everything about both things.
Except, of course, spinning.
Today I took my very first spinning class ever. Part of my "homework" for my certification class is to take group classes in the different disciplines (kickboxing, aerobics, step, dance, spinning, etc.) in addition to my regular work out. This is going to be a challenge for me because as it is, I spend roughly 3 hours a day at the gym and with school and life I don't have the time. So what I decided to do is take the classes I don't usually take and work from there. Today was spinning day.
And I suck.
Taking into consideration that it probably didn't help that last night I went to Happy Hour until late and didn't go to bed until even later, I was truly horrible. First, I couldn't get the bike comfortable, once I did I couldn't get in "the zone", then my quads were killing me, I found the work out boring, it pisses me off to ride a bike (albeit stationary) and not get anywhere and last but not least, the top reason why I hate the class was REGGAETON.
Reggaeton makes my ears bleed and my soul cry in pain. As a self respecting woman I can't listen to that crap. I don't know what I am going to do because I do intend to keep taking the damn class until I get really good at it (or my legs/ass start getting too big whichever happens first) but I will not get all ghetto fabulous to do it.
If only I could use my iPod during the class...
Though I have already decided that for my spinning test I'm going to design my class using house/progressive/trance music. That's some good stuff :)
