I took my first spin class! Where have I been hiding out? These classes are incredible. My friend Liz and I decided to forgo happy hour for a “FlyBeats” class at Flywheel Sports in Scottsdale. Let’s just say our instructor, Erin Campbell rocked our world!
I had no idea what to expect. I workout at Orange Theory regularly so I was pretty sure I could make it through the class, but I had no idea how challenging these 45-minute spin classes were going to be. The workout room is “stadium style” to ensure no riders are directly on top of each other. The room is dark, the music is loud, the atmosphere feels like a rock concert which makes the 45 minutes fly by. No pun intended.
Don’t worry about buying shoes that clip in, they provide those for you. And lockers, towels and fresh fruit to follow your workout. You can also reserve your bike in advance online. I’m super controlling, so I love that. Every instructor is different but I was so pleased with Erin. She had great energy and amazing music (I went home and downloaded some of her playlist).
That’s Erin on the right. Jeremiah is in the middle and he is amazing – from my first visit I could tell that the staff here really cares about you and wants you to succeed in your workouts.
I’m going to spare you the after photo of Liz and I. Let’s just say I didn’t think sweating that much was possible. According to their website, I rode 21 miles in 45 minutes. WHAT! That is incredible. Huge thanks to Flywheel Sports for having us and for giving me such a positive outlook on Spin classes. I’ll be back for more! If you are a first timer at Flywheel, your first ride is only $15. Check it out, I highly recommend it.
