Yep, you read that right. I had never taken a spin class before! So when Pure Indoor Cycling reached out wanting to collaborate, I jumped at the chance to give spin a try. I’m not going to lie, I was SO nervous before my first class! Like, way more nervous than a normal person should be. But let’s be real, I’m definitely not a hardcore workout girl, so questions were swirling through my head like, am I going to fall off my bike? What if my muscles just give out and I have to stop? Is this going to kill me?
Well, I’m happy to say that I had absolutely nothing to be nervous about! My instructor was so helpful getting me set up on the bike (although it took me forever to clip my feet in…a little embarrassing!), and guided us through the basics before getting started. The class itself was a total blast! I was a little concerned in the beginning when my muscles felt like they were literally on fire, but once we got into the rhythm of things, I felt great. The loud music really gets you going, and I loved the darkness and the fun lights that coordinated with the music. It was so nice to just forget about the world for a little while! The class was a total butt kicker, but I would do it again in a heartbeat. It was an amazing full body workout, and I left class feeling energized, sweaty, and happy. I’ve never felt that good after a workout class!
For the class, I wore my favorite rose gold, floral workout leggings (because I mean…rose gold and floral are everything) and the cutest graphic workout tee I snagged the day before class. The tee was the perfect motivator, especially when I looked at myself in the mirror during class! I loved that it’s long, flowy, and not clingy. I threw on my favorite sports bra to complete my look! If you’re on the busty side, a great sports bra is a MUST for spin. There’s a lot of up and down and bouncing around. Take my word for it! 😉
If you’re on the fence about trying spin, I totally reccommend it! It also helped having an amazing instructor and a gorgeous, brand new Spin Studio. The studio is located downtown and is seriously so beautiful! If you’re a San Diego local, you can reserve your ride here (your first ride is free!). Maybe I’ll see you there!
