Trying new things is a bit scary. Especially when you have anxiety about new things and not knowing what to expect especially not knowing if I can keep up (WHICH IS ONE OF MY BIGGEST FEARS; NOT BEING ABLE TO KEEP UP, ACKINOWLEDING THAT I DON’T HAVE THE KIND OF ENDURANCE OR WILL POWER NECESSARY TO SUCCEED). & It scares the shit out of me tbh.
So last week I wrote a blog about trying new forms of exercise and I’m finally going to practice what I preach!
Today I signed up for a spin class. And I did my research prior to booking a spot because it relaxes my mind and I start to understand the kind of environment I’ll be in. So first things first I googled different spinning classes and I started with the major well-known companies like Soul Cycle and Flywheel Sports but let me tell you it’s kind of pricey. And I’m sure they have very upbeat classes with great instructors but I don’t think my budget allows me to splurge on single classes at that price. And imagine if I get hooked holy crap I’ll be broke and I think that’s my only complaint from the big spinning classes because I AM POSITIVE THEY’RE GREAT AND THEY’LL DELIVER A GREAT EXPERIENCE but I’m trying to find a class for the average joe with an average budget!
So I searched on Google and I found Sunset Bike House (NO I’M NOT BEING SPONSORED BUT IF SUNSET BIKE HOUSE WOULD LIKE TO GIVE ME COMPLIMENTARY CLASSES I’LL TAKE THEM)
And the Yelp reviews completely eased my mind. They all had great things to say and the price is very affordable! The first class is 5 dollars and they have such great deals ranging from 8 to 15 dollars a class which is the cheapest I’ve found! And they have parking which is crazy especially in Los Angeles! So I signed up for a morning class and today will be my first day! YIKES.
I really hope I can keep up with the class and that the instructor understands I’m a beginner and needs explaining when it comes to proper posture. And since it’ll be a class of about 15 students I hope I don’t stand out because I don’t want to be discouraged and feel like I’ve been unsuccessful in having a great workout!
But oh well, we’ll find out tonight!
By the way, if you have any class suggestions in the LA Area LET ME KNOW! I REALLY WANT TO TRY ALL TYPES OF CLASSES. Heck even if they’re not in the LA area let me know, I’m totally willing to travel to experience a one of kind class!
