More Confessions of a Cycle Instructor and Weds Spin Playlist.

Happy hump day to ya! Hope you have mid week fun in store. It is a great day to share some spin cycle jams!! I’ve got some brand new songs mixed with a few throwbacks. But first I thought I would share some confessions…a continuation of sorts! Having a side hustle as a fitness instructor is quite fun and I love being able to do this labor of love. But there are some days that we just don’t have it all together!! Hahaha. The instructor struggle can be so very real.

I confess…

There are days when I change up my entire playlist for a class at the very last minute. Thankfully I am really good at changing up the workout as well to tailor to each song. I think when you have been teaching for a long time also you can kind of get away with this, so to speak. Which is always a good thing.

I generally do the workout along with the class (and doing this simultaneously while teaching is certainly no easy feat) which leaves me pretty dang spent afterwards. But that is something that I absolutely LOVE. I know I’ve taught a good class when I can come home and pretty much pass out right after class (after a shower of course haha)

Since I do know how TIRED and SPENT these classes leave me at the end of the day. A lot of times I will utilize the women’s locker room/amenities/shower before even going home. I really have considered bringing my pajamas to the gym so I can go straight home and then straight to bed. That is the plus side to teaching a class at night I guess.

I do have FAVORITES in class (teacher’s pet – yes we have them) and generally my favorite people are those that like to dance/sing to the music/make noise during class. My party people. Yes, you can workout hard and have FUN at the same dang time.

Hey there are some days where I get kind of emotional.
