Wise Words From Tahni Hamilton – Indoor Cycling Instructor + Total Badass

You know those home improvement shows where the overly-happy people aggressively remove walls between rooms?  Now, imagine if we did that at Honest Training. Nope, I have no desire for an open view of the bathroom but there are lessons from the spin studio that should defiantly be applied to circuit training.   Focusing on just two key cycling components will make a big difference in the benefits you receive – in both rooms of the studio.

Indoor Cycling, Mindfulness & Facing Fears

Indoor Cycling, Mindfulness, & Facing FearsI’ll never forget my first spin class. I was in my early thirties and complained to a friend
of having low energy and just not feeling great in my skin. My friend invited me to take a
spin class with her. I’d never heard of spin but thought, how hard can riding a bike be?
Turns out, hard.

I don’t know how I made it through that first class. Because spin bikes
are stationary, it’s possible to pedal a great deal faster than you would on an outdoor
bike. At one point the instructor cued us to stand up as we pedaled — and even though
I’d done it hundreds of times on my bike as a kid — nope. Couldn’t do it. I was so
annoyed with myself that I came back a few days later to try again. And that is the
beginning of the story of how spin changed my life.
