That had to be the worst spinning class I’ve ever had and it had nothing to do with my performance:

* How can I concentrate on my heavy breathing if the guy next to me is coughing the whole time? If you’re sick, don’t come to the gym!

* I’m a 31 year old black male from the city. Classic 80’s rock isn’t that motivating to me. It doesn’t have to be current but it should have more energy and less guitar.

* The equipment is well below par. LA Fitness, it’s time to put some money into new bikes and I don’t want to hear that rate hike talk.

* The instructor felt like she was more there with us than inspiring us. Make me feel like I want to do the exercise but not because you told me to!

OK, I feel better. Rant over.

Gym Power

This one is coming in at the wire for the week.

Just a note, I’ve been spending a lot more time in the gym lately mainly due to terrible weather we’ve been having and partly because of the wealth of exercises that can be done there.

I would love to be one of those people that can workout at home and be productive but that just isn’t me. I need the others around me working to that similar goal to motivate me to keep going. I may not speak to them directly but it does help to have that community spirit of motivation.  It must come from the runners spirit in me.
