I took my first spinning class ever. From Bob Harper :)

Has anyone tried spinning?

I took my first spinning class ever from The Biggest Loser trainer Bob Harper. He's a fellow vegan athlete, cool guy I've seen around LA a couple of times and his class kicked my butt!

I'm going to go every weekend I'm in town! I travel a lot and I'm leaving LA in 6 weeks, but when I'm here I'll be spinning and trying not to vomit :)

Combined with weight training over at Gold's Gym Venice and Muscle Beach, I should get back in shape soon!

Ok. I have to admit. I'm jealous. That would be cool.

And Spinning classes would kick even Lance Armstrong's butt.

Nice. The cool thing about spinning classes is that they are subjective so they can kick anyone's butt. The stronger/fitter you are, the more you crank up the resistance, and follow along just the same.

I bet Bob makes a good spinning instructor. I've taken a few spinning classes and the instructor makes all the difference.

does he have some kind of special good qualities as a personal trainer, or is he good 'cause he's nice looking in a tv kind of way, or is it his personality? activism? sense of humor? personal integrity? cupcake baking skills? or what?

there are a few exceptionally good spin instructors at my gym. some are racers.

i hate spinning class.

I'm laughing a the trying not to vomit comment. Been there. :) Spin is challenging that's for sure. I do like it to change up the cardio every once in a while. That's awesome that you could take a class with Bob Harper!
