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.
