Spin. I've taught 3 spin classes in the last two weeks. It's been way more fun than I thought it would be.
The first class was the most stressful. Would they like me? Would they like my music? Would I give too many or too few cues? Would they leave in the middle?
Thankfully I learned a lot that first class. One, I didn't have enough music for the amount of time allotted. It wasn't a normal 60 min spin class. It was 70 minutes and I programmed too few songs prior to stretching. And I looked at my phone way too much.
The 2nd class a week later was much smoother. I heard compliments on my music. And everyone left sweating. Today's class was great as well. I tried to get it fast moving and upbeat. I picked mostly rock and roll songs. And got many of comments that these songs were before my time.
I'm not scheduled to sub this class anymore. Though I have some more on the books and I think I'll stick with rock and roll and maybe add in some top 40 hits to another one. And I know, I know no country. :)
I programmed tons of hills. I heard this class, 6:30am, likes a nice tough ride. And I hope I delivered.
Here is a preview of my playlist:
