Addicted To Flywheel And It’s Alright With Me!

I recently took up Flywheel in NYC, and truth be told, you really do become addicted to it.  After watching a variety of friends fall victim to spin addiction over the last few months, I decided it was finally time to see what all the hype was about. At my first Flywheel class I was nervous and had no idea what was going on. Within the first 10 minutes I was feeling the pain of pure torture and I was counting down the minutes the whole time, just waiting for class to be over. And then it ended and I was like, “That’s it!” Flywheel classes are 45 minutes of the most challenging and exhausting exercise imaginable, but then they’re over and you think to yourself, “Wow, that went by so quickly, I could totally do more.”

And the sweat. Oh the sweat. Sweat was pouring out of my body at such a rate that I couldn’t figure out where it was coming from. My towel was soaked, my clothes were soaked, and my skin was slick with a cold fever like sweat that I thought to myself just couldn’t be healthy. And then I saw that I burned 600 calories in 45 minutes and sweated out all those NYC pollution induced toxins and all of a sudden it was beyond worth it.  Getting home that night took twice as long, as I was moving twice as slow and my legs were still trying to differentiate walking from pedaling, but I slept like a baby that night and couldn’t wait to get back on the bike the next day.

Now I’ve added Flywheel to my regular weekly workout schedule.  In addition to running and a palates class, I now plan to do a Flywheel class once a week and can’t wait to increase it to twice a week (just give me a little time).

So what are the things that are just so awesome about Flywheel? That’s simple. It’s a great exercise and you burn a ton of calories relatively quickly. The instructors are challenging but incredibly encouraging and everyone’s there to work.  The room is dim and the music is fantastic. There’s an iPhone app where you can register for classes and see your results afterwards. There’s the TorqBoard where you can compete both with yourself and with the rest of the class.

All in all, what I know is that for a VERY long time I just said, eh, spin is not for me.  Turns out, I’m full of S**T. Spin and specifically Flywheel are definitely for me.
