We are headed back to our friends at O2 Modern Fitness, but this time we are not in the studio, but on the bikes! That’s right. We are going to get an introduction to spin (some us us, uhum Jade) have tons of experience with this, but for most of us this will be a first.
We will be meeting at the clubhouse at 1:30pm on Sunday and riding to O2 for a special intro to spinning and bike fit session with Susan Frank and Kurt Rosenquist from Fitworks. We will be doing this on our own bicycles in trainers and then going on a short ride from there. There are two purposes to our visit/practice with them:
1. To become familiar with a spin class, setting up our bikes in trainers, and learning to work with intervals, etc. There are a few more weeks of these to come, so this is the beginning.
2. To learn more about proper bike fit/positioning. Kurt is a professional who will talk with us about what it should feel like to ride a bike (aka not hurt!) and we will go on a short ride from there to learn more about our positioning on our own bikes.
Parents are welcome to join us, if they so choose. This visit will be a freebie for you as parents, since you will be watching more than anything, and then we hope that you join us in our spin classes the following weekends and help out our sponsor O2 by paying the class fee.
So yes, we have been developing a great relationship with O2 Modern Fitness so that they are on board (and our jerseys to come) for 2011!
We should be done and back to the clubhouse around 4pm.
