Stay (and FIND IT) 364

Inspiration: This year my SPRING BREAK has been a STAYcation...Spring NO-BREAK Week. NO BREAK is right, I've been busy covering other classes for instructors that are getting out of town for the week...going on 12 days in a row with one (or two) classes a day. They'll all be glad to know I haven't forgotten … Continue reading Stay (and FIND IT) 364

Soundtrack… 338

Inspiration: Just like the importance of a solid SOUNDTRACK in a movie or television show...a good ride becomes a great adventure with a solid SOUNDTRACK (aka Playlist, Tracklist, SpinList).

If you are one of those Cycling class regulars, be sure to invite a family member, friend or co-worker to try an indoor cycling … Continue reading People 306

Heart & Soul 272

Inspiration: Speaking of SOUL...the boutique cycling studio is in the financial news these days with talk of an IPO (Initial Public Offering) that's been in the works for nearly a decade. Yes, you could own a piece of this company soon, maybe even get paid for your investment, versus paying $30 for a 45 minute … Continue reading Heart & Soul 272
