I don’t think the brand is as important as comfort when it comes to spin shoes. You can spend $60-$90 and get a great pair.
If you like the ones at Soul Cycle, they will order a pair for you, just ask!
So glad you’re loving spin.
They should say that before they show scenes from the upcoming episodes.
FRANK, why??! No!!! You’ve broken my heart!! Be a man damn it!!
New Yorkers, when you venture to Brooklyn, where do you meet up with the cool kids for unique shopping and “holy sh!t that’s good” food?
As I burn the midnight oil, for some silly reason I opted for these random snacks instead of coffee:
- A glass of Malbec
- Leftover WF broccoli crunch
- Acai juice
The interesting combo has somehow inspired me to learn how to make cool graphics in my PowerPoint presentation. A latte never had me exploring shadows and gradients.
But I’m crashing quickly….
Seriously, how did I stay awake until 4am, wake up at 6 to teach spin, complete a full day running all over New York, entertain over drinks and dinner, return home to my computer until the wee hours, and repeat the cycle MULTIPLE days in a row? This was only a couple years ago! I tell you, that city takes you to limits you never knew you had. The calm and cozy Houston lifestyle has me begging for bed by 10. My how my tables have turned.
So glad to hear you’ve kept my main messages with you! As for the apps, whatever gets you motivated and working out is good in my book.
Although, be careful not to let your body get in the habit of running the same distance and doing a certain number of squats with the same movement. In order for your body to physically change and grow stronger, you have to challenge your muscles by rotating exercises or adding a new element.
If you’re looking to do 200 squats a day to tone your legs, consider some of these alternatives:
- curtsy lunges
- squats on a bosu
- step ups
- jumping squats
- adding weights
- doing a shoulder press or curls while you squat/lunge
In terms of your running, instead of just jogging, add:
- Running sprints of 30 seconds and slowly jog in between
- Running uphill
- Walking uphill
- Walking lunges
- High knee intervals
Apologies my fitness posts have been few and far between. Honestly, my exercise routine isn’t effortless and I’ve been burned out myself recently. Thankfully I’ve been teaching more spin classes which I LOVE doing more than anything!
- Pregnant Kris: He's all about you.
- Me: Oh, I know. I don't need a kid, I have Mason.
- Kris: He couldn't handle it.
- Me: Mase gets jealous of my computer.
