Adrenaline 508

A year ago TODAY, here in West Michigan, the Coronavirus pandemic got real...and what was projected to change for just a few weeks, rocked our world for months. This CORONA-Versary marks my last maskless studio cycling class and the last time in the office of my “day job”! When will maskless fitness classes in public … Continue reading Adrenaline 508

This Is Our Time 503

Inspiration:  Saturday AM Bonus...buzzing through my Spotify library I found this overlooked mix mostly sorted and ride-ready.  15 tracks, three stages, 45 minutes...for a Cycle HIIT class.  Plenty of intervals with some climbs and arm work mixed in.  My current fav tracks are The Well, In Your Eyes, Chain Me Up, Pop, My Oh My, … Continue reading This Is Our Time 503

Further Up: Mr. 305 in the 616 (Pitbull Mix) 502

Inspiration:  The 305 area (South Florida) sounds pretty good now...compared with the 616 area (West Michigan)...and with the newest Pitbull release out, this theme ride sounded like a good idea.  This is also a nod to fellow Miami area cycle instructor Adam Ginsberg (GinsSpins), winding down and enjoying the #onelastdance at RedBike Cycle Studio. Here's … Continue reading Further Up: Mr. 305 in the 616 (Pitbull Mix) 502

Now’s The Time…(to) Shine 481

Inspiration:  After being MIA and off-line for about 3-weeks...and after getting this comment from Jessica: Are you not making spin class play lists anymore. I looked forward to them every week, it's about time for another ride / playlist.  Several new tracks in these fresh playlists, 60m and 45m versions, packed with everything from Pop … Continue reading Now’s The Time…(to) Shine 481

Fire Alarm 478

Inspiration:  After discovering SPOTIFY's The New Alt playlist, I was inspired to create this all-alternative playlist.  Other than a few hills, this is mostly a quick-paced ride with a variety of jumps, sprints and other high-cadence stretches.  If you're looking for a shorter 45m class format, there's an ALTERNATIVE version for that too.  Several new … Continue reading Fire Alarm 478
