Actually, it was my first spinning class ever. I had no clue what to expect, but I was super excited to try it!
All I can say is that the 45-minute class was a lot of fun! It’s challenging for those who don’t workout (like me!), but it’s something you definitely have to try.
After you register, they’ll ask for your shoe size and give you special cycling shoes to wear with clips at the bottom. I loved putting them on, because I felt like I was getting geared up for an adventure!
Honestly though? I also felt a bit overwhelmed by the experience at first. I’m not super athletic and new situations always make me feel nervous. The venue can be a bit intimidating—especially if you’re surrounded by people who already know their way around. But the Saddle Row crew is very reassuring and they’re happy to guide you through the process, so don’t be shy to ask for help!
When our instructor (hi Topper!) found out that it was my first time, he reassured me that I could do it, and more importantly, that I’d enjoy it. Some classes get competitive and they even post your speed on the wall for everyone to see, but Topper’s class was all about riding to the music and moving to the beat (loved that!).
