Spinning Nazi

Sienfeld had the “Soup Nazi” and 24hr. Fitness in Kent, WA has the “Spinning Nazi.”

For those of you who are unfamiliar with “spinning” it is essentially a crazy intense indoor cycling class. Well, I normally go on Monday to Kellie’s class. This class is challenging, it’s engaging and most of all it’s fun.

I decided however that I need to step up the number of nights a week that I spin from one to two or three nights to add in my training for the STP. So, tonight I went to Greg’s class. Going into tonight I knew it was going to be intense. Greg is a little short guy who yells, he gets in your face, he tells you how disappointed he is in you, he calls you out as a quitter, essentially he is a drill instructor or  as I affectionately call him, “The Spinning Nazi.”

Now, I do have to give Greg props, in addition to the way he berates you, he does encourage and build you back up; but only after shredding your leg muscles. It is a challenge, but one that will no doubt make you a better rider.

Tonight we rode for a little over an hour, but 54 minutes of that time was a hill climb. Hopefully I’ll be able to walk tomorrow.

One Response to “Spinning Nazi”

  1. Hi,

    My name is Andrea and I’m working on the Spinning Nation event. I won’t bore you with all the details, but it’s the first nationwide Spinning fundraising event ever and we have a very small staff putting it together. If you like the idea after you take a look at what we’re doing and wouldn’t mind mentioning us on your blog it would help a lot. If not, I understand. Blogs are a very personal thing and I wouldn’t ask if it weren’t for good causes. Thanks, you can always reach me at andrea@sportsgrants.org. The website is http://www.spinningnation.org.

    Best regards,
