How Not To Do A Spin Class

a2

Part of my new quest for a life that doesn’t include constant stress headaches, random all over full body tension pains, coupled with a need to feel better about myself, and to quell an insatiable appetite for wine (well, anything that contained alcohol really, I wasn’t fussed. Even the out of date Saki I found in the back of the cupboard would do, after a bad day,) was to step up my gym routine.

Thus far, my gym routine consisted of a bit of cross training, a bit of uphill walking, a bit of running if I had any energy left, then a few weights. I’d only do the weights section if it was free of large, sweaty, beefy, scary looking men whose muscles looked ready to explode in a steroid induced eruption, leaving muscle fragment and steroid residue splattering the gym equipment.

I wasn’t sure this routine was actually doing anything for me, I was doing it purely based on equipment that was free, and stuff I liked-there had been no consulting anyone. So I consulted someone. The general consensus for someone lacking in time, wanting to maximise calorie burning, was to do spin classes. I sought a second opinion. The second, toned, tanned gym beauty sadly, agreed with the first-with the results I wanted + the time I had + exercise recommended for my medical issues = spin was coming up trumps.

Even in the pre children days where I went to the gym a lot, I gave spinning a wide birth. It seemed to be an hour of no fun, and 100% torture. The people who did it seemed very serious. I’d always thought it wasn’t for me. But, as I’d asked, and it had been recommended, I decided to give it a go. So, for anyone wanting to give spin class a go, here is a definitive guide of how not to do it!

a1

(NOT what I looked like doing it…)

  1. Do not spend the time you should be getting ready for spin class, dicking around on Instagram.
  2. Do not forget that because you dropped your children off at nursery what seemed like hours ago, that when you leave for spin class ‘in plenty of time,’ it will still actually be rush hour traffic.
  3. Do not run into the gym, and ninja roll to the place you think the class will be, only to waste more time galloping back to reception to ask where it actually is, because it wasn’t where you thought it’d be.
  4. With due diligence to not dick around on Instagram, and think that there will be less traffic at 9.30am, you won’t be two minutes late. If you are, the spin instructor will not ‘wait for five minutes for everyone to arrive,’ like you had anticipated.
  5. Don’t expect the very serious spinners in the class to not look at you like you’re an intruder, and have ruined their spin experience by being late-they will.
  6. In your haste to get dressed for spin because of the pregnant women frolicking in the sea, sleeping newborns in baskets, and Blake Lively stalking that you got caught up in, don’t choose a pair of workout bottoms that have a couple of holes in the bum area, thinking that if you wear knickers in the same colour underneath, it won’t notice. Just f***ing don’t.
  7. Don’t expect that the vest you choose, to go over the top, will hide the camel toe you thought you noticed on your way out of the house. It won’t.
  8. Do invest in some serious sports bras, not some you bought in Giles Sports in 2002, when your boobs were 10 times smaller, and stood up by themselves.
  9. Don’t assume that the serious spinners will all want to be at the front of the class, and you’ll be able to slip quietly into the back. It seems that even geek spinners like to be cool at the back of the class. Expect the only seat to be near the tanned, impossibly toned instructor, who will be cross with you because you are late.
  10. Don’t assume that even though you aren’t as fit as you once were, you won’t struggle to keep up with the torture being inflicted on your legs and arse-the struggle will begin in the first five minutes, and you’ll be faced with the dilemma of walking out and being shamed in front of the class, or staying until the end, thus risking probable death.
  11. Don’t expect that the whole class will be done sat down-most of it is done standing up on the bike. Therefore, your arse, wobbling enough to cause a minor earthquake, will be wobbling in the faces of everyone else in the class. This will make you go red and want to bring the imminent death brought about by exercising at a level way above what your heart rate can take, forward, to ease your embarrassment. At least your face will already be puce from the exertion, and nobody will know which one it’s red about.
  12. Don’t pick up your water bottle if your hand is sweaty. You might want to pretend you need a drink, just so you can sit down and slow down for a moment, but when your hand is sweaty, and you haven’t secured the top of your bottle properly, you will drop it, and the contents will go all over the floor.
  13. Don’t pray that the instructor won’t notice that you are pretending to move up a gear when she is screaming ‘if you’re lower than gear 18, and not feeling the burn, THE ONLY PERSON YOU’RE CHEATING IS YOURSELF!!!!!!’ whilst looking straight at you-she has definitely noticed. So has the person next to you, side eyeing your failure.
  14. Don’t mutter ‘thank f**k for that’ when the instructor is turning the music off. Everyone will hear.
  15. Don’t think that you will walk out of the class with any dignity intact. Your leg muscles, in protest at the unnatural process you have just forced them to endure, will liquidate. They will render your dignified and graceful dismount from the bike useless, when they fail to take your full weight, and you collapse in a heap on the floor.

*There you have it, a definitive how NOT to guide!

**Sorry to anyone behind me in spin class that day, I’m sorry that your eyes won’t be able to unsee my gym bottoms splitting and revealing my granny pants-I truly apologise for any nightmares this has caused.

    All I can say is you are one brave chick! I hate spinning – it is torture to me! This cracked me up – I’ll stick to dicking around on Instagram 😉 xx #bigpinklink

      It is torture, yet I’m going back again today… At a later time, as I’ve scheduled Insta time in this time!! Xx

  2. September 26, 2016 / 8:12 am

    SO many reasons why I am not planning on taking one hahaha I reckon I would pretend to move up a gear all the time. And I would drink a lot of water, slippery hands or not! So not for me for sure #bigpinklink

    • This Mum's Life
      September 26, 2016 / 9:35 pm

      It takes some stealth to pretend to change gear!! Especially with beady side eye from the instructor…!

  3. September 26, 2016 / 8:12 am

    Oh I am crying! I knew from the title that this was going to be so funny! I hate spin so have one more thing to add to your list – don’t think that because the beginner’s spin class is full that it will be OK to join the advanced class – it will never be OK. OMG I have never ever been more humiliated or in more pain than when I did. Such a funny post – the comment as the music went down. The glaring stares at your lower than gear 18 – who are these people? Try pilates my lovely! #BigPinkLink

      September 26, 2016 / 9:37 pm

      Hehe!! They don’t have different levels of it at my gym-it’s just the one, totally ridiculously torturous level!! I’m kind of glad you’ve experienced the spin shame too…! I should really move on to Pilates…!

  4. September 26, 2016 / 8:24 am

    Haha! I have never done a spin class because I’d be awful at it. I know people that have hurt themselves quite badly. My sister in law used to go all the time pre kids and she said they are very much like a little gang and notice anyone new. Nope not for me! Instagram is much more fun and interesting.

      Yes, it’s definitely a gang!! And I do think the seat has done permanent damage to my behind…!

  5. September 26, 2016 / 8:35 am

    This sounds like pure torture and humiliation. Like you I have always given these classes a wide berth as I have assumed it is for hardcore fitness fanatics. I am not sure that you have convinced me otherwise but you have made me smile. Are you going back? #bigpinklink

    • This Mum's Life
      September 26, 2016 / 9:40 pm

      Yes, I’ve been back today! Can I call myself a fitness fanatic now?! I don’t know if I’ll be going on a regular basis though…!

  6. September 26, 2016 / 8:50 am

    Even if I didn’t have to read the host post cos it’s a linky, you know I would have clicked anyway right? Because 1) will read anything you write including your shoppiong list 2) the title. I used to be the most hardened of gym-goers: gruelling aerobics classes, an hour on the stairmaster etc I’ve not been in 5 years as childcare issues etc meant I had to find other ways of exercising so I turned to running and yoga. I’m planning to return to the gym as the running is too punishing to do several times a week and anyway, I need to exercise other muscle groups. There is one class I have NEVER considered doing as it totally terrifies me. No explanation needed. And now you’ve written this, well that’s THAT then. 😉 #bigpinklink

      Aaah Prabs, you’re too kind!! I’m so glad you like the shizzle that I write! I didn’t realise till I read the comments, that spin really is considered the most hardcore of the exercise classes!! Yes, unless you want to die, I’d probably give it a miss…!

  7. September 26, 2016 / 8:50 am

    Hi Lucy, this did make me giggle and backed up my reasons for never doing a spin class. I have a vision of holey gym bottomed ladies (and men) wobbling, sweating and swearing under their breath…. I’m just not that brave. Hats off to you and keep up the good work!

      Thanks Debbie!! I will keep going! It was quite a buzz to get to the end, especially as 5 minutes in, I was already convinced I didn’t have the fitness to go on!!

  8. September 26, 2016 / 9:05 am

    Oh my gawd!!! That sounds a truly dreadful experience!!! Hilariously written as usual! If you go again, then I hope dearly you get a space at the back to hide in. The last class i went to was some sort of aerobics dance and I kept finding myself facing the whole class in the wrong direction…I didn’t burn any calories cos I was too busy trying to get the steps right. #bigpinklink

    • This Mum's Life
      September 26, 2016 / 9:46 pm

      Oh no!! Well, maybe spin is for you… No steps to learn!!! I went again, and got there ridiculously early!! Hiding at the back made it a lot easier!!

  9. September 26, 2016 / 9:07 am

    OMG you’re going back?!!! Nutcase. I went once :NEVER AGAIN, I don’t know how people do it. You’re post made me lol though, I was picturing Bridget Jones the whole way through 🙂 #BigPinkLink

    • This Mum's Life
      September 26, 2016 / 9:48 pm

      Yes, the whole thing was rather Bridget Jones…! I got a weird satisfaction from the torture… I need help!

  10. September 26, 2016 / 9:19 am

    I was a split second off vomiting the one and only time I ever did this. It is torture; plain and simple. #bigpinklink

      Very succinctly put!! If you’re close to vomming, it’s definitely not for you!

    Oooh no more spinning for me! This was pre-kid exercise, now it’s more about a chilled out run. I never looked good in spinning before or after the class, and the icky puddle of sweat….euw! #bigpinklink

    • This Mum's Life
      October 1, 2016 / 1:18 pm

      Yes, exactly!! That was another thing I was mortified about-I forgot to take a towel to mop myself with, and the bike was just dripping… Gross!!

  13. September 26, 2016 / 9:31 am

    I do spin at home because no one needs to see what I look like when I’m a sweaty mess!! It ain’t pretty!! Great post – funny as always #bigpinklink

    • This Mum's Life
      October 1, 2016 / 1:19 pm

      Thanks Rach! I keep on to my husband about moving, I really need a garage where I can spin in peace too!!

  14. September 26, 2016 / 9:59 am

    Ha! This is brilliant! Spin classes are the work of the devil. In saying that, I have only ever been to one and thankfully it was in a dark room with bright flashing lights so no one could see all the things they don’t want to see. Definitely no level 18 was ever engaged!! #bigpinklink

    • This Mum's Life
      October 1, 2016 / 1:20 pm

      Good for you!! Although I might suggest to my gym that they dim the lights and put disco lights on instead-it sounds way more fun and socially acceptable!!

  15. September 26, 2016 / 10:27 am

    Hahahahaha!!! I love you. I am so averse to exercise that even reading your first bit about what you normally do at the gym made me go ‘Christ, she does a lot of exercise’ – so then the description of the spin class brought me out in a sweat. So funny! I’ve just seen in your comment to Fi that you’re going back – I have so much respect for you! Good luck! #bigpinklink

    This is exactly why I never attempted a spin class, even in my most hardcore workout days pre-baby, when I was at the gym 5 days a week. It sounds like pure torture! I’ll just stick to my hour on the elliptical machine while watching YouTube videos, thanks. #bigpinklink

    Haha, love this! I really got into spinning (I know, I think I was losing my marbles) for about a year. I could never get off the sodding bike afterwards and the number of times I fell off! #bigpinklink

    • This Mum's Life
      October 1, 2016 / 1:26 pm

      Wow, good for you!! I’m persevering, but not sure I’ll still be doing it in a year yet…! The getting off IS awful!! There’s no anticipating how much like jelly your legs will be!

  19. September 26, 2016 / 12:36 pm

    Spin class genuinely seems like hell. I expect (hope) I’ll never go to one, but I’m glad I know what not to do if I’m ever in the mood to try!

    Hahahaha, I laughed and laughed reading this. I recently, in a moment of fat madness, signed up for a disco spin class. Torture is not the word! I’ve no doubt that it works and I hope I go back but man, it’s hard. Guilty of number 8 and number 14, among others! #bigpinklink

    Is it addictive then? I’ve never fancied a spin class and now I know why! I loved your description though – it made me grin 🙂 Alison x #bigpinklink

    • This Mum's Life
      October 1, 2016 / 1:34 pm

      Well, getting to the end, when 10 minutes in I was sure I’d have to give up and walk out, was a huge buzz!! And I did have a bit of an endorphin high! If I see results, it may well become addictive…!

  24. September 26, 2016 / 1:38 pm

    Haha brilliant tips and if this is actually how your first class went down, I say good on you for going back again! I’ve always steered clear of spin, it looks too much like torture and I know I’d hate every second, but I might have to resort to it to shift the baby weight once the little one’s arrived and I can see the actual effects of an ice cream every day for 9 months!! #bigpinklink x

    • This Mum's Life
      October 1, 2016 / 1:38 pm

      This is, unfortunately how it went down…! A few years ago, if this had happened, I think would’ve not just not gone back ever again, but possibly emigrated! I seem to be a bit harder nowadays, and I cared a lot less if people remembered me, and what an idiot I made of myself!! I don’t know if that’s age, or whether it’s because I left all my dignity in the delivery room!!

  25. September 26, 2016 / 1:58 pm

    Brave lady! I don’t think I could EVER try spin class. I’ve heard it’s torture and being somewhat averse to torture I’ve decided to give it a wide berth! 😉

    I have never ever tried a spin class. I’ve even done bootcamps (that resulted in an ambulance ride to A&E – I kid you not) and “Meta-fit” – aka Mentalfit. I still would not go near a spin class for all the cake in cake town. You are a very brave lady and I salute you! Total giggle fit at “Don’t mutter ‘thank f**k for that’ ” too – thanks for that! 🙂 xx #bigpinklink

  31. September 26, 2016 / 4:52 pm

    Haha!! Brilliant! Not that I needed a reason not to do spin, but now I will never be tempted.
    p.s I always notice holes in my leggings (in the most inappropriate places) Just as I have to do downward dog in yoga. I am too embarrassed to make eye contact with the row behind after class.

    You are a braver woman than me. Even at my peak fitness level (prior to having Siena) there is no way I would ever have attempted a Spin class. Pretty much for all of the reasons you describe and also because I am an emetophobic and quite a few friends had told me they threw up after the class. There seems to be a a fair few unwritten rules shared between the Cult of Spinners and I thank you for sharing the secrets with us, however I will never ever take a spin class!

      Awww, thanks, I’m glad you liked it!! I’d actually advise trying it-it’s ridiculously hard, but did give me a great sense of achievement in completing it!!

    Ahahahahahaha oh Lucy!!!!! This is so funny obviously in a totally empathetic and supportive way. I went to gym class the other day and my knickers actually rolled down under my leggings leaving me with no way to fix them without shoving a hand down the back of my leggings….which I obviously wasn’t about to do in a mirror lined room! So uncomfortable!! Thanks for being my hilarious and awesomely gorgeous even in split trousers, co-host! #bigpinklink

      Bloody knickers!!!! Why don’t they just stay where they should-covering our tummies, and out of our arses!!

    Hahaha! I love spinning I’m afraid, but I’m by no means one of the cool kids – they are always at the back too and I’m always late and forced to the front!! I don’t have a lot of time but have noticed my fitness and strength in my legs rapidly improve from going once or twice a week.I have had a good few comical moments in my spin classes and have thought a few times about writing a post about it. I might do now! I can’t top flashing your pants though!!!

      Definitely do a post!! Ok, that’s reassuring, that you’re finding it effective! I am planning to keep going, so that’s just given me a bit more incentive!!

    This really made me giggle!! But you’re not the only one- I used to be a spin instructor and there was one like you every week!! 😉 #bigpinklink

    Haha, love this. You are very brave … when I get fit after having baby number two I might avoid the spin class 😉 #bigpinklink

      It’s pretty hardcore!!!!

    Haha brilliant – well, you are braver than I am as I’ve always been afraid of spinning. Most of the time I walk past the spinning class at the gym, the instructor is shouting at everyone gah! I am totally with you on the camel toe situ, or generally thinking that your best will hide stains on the trousers…such a funny post. Thanks for hosting #bigpinklink xx

    I have to say the idea of spinning has never appealed to me at all!! #bigpinklink

    A friend of mine is trying to convince me that spin in a good idea – to be honest I want to loose the weight so I may give it a go but will heed your no to do list! Hilarious as ever and thanks for hosting #Bigpinklink xx

    Oh my goodness! I would not usually go anywhere near a spin class – but if I did, I would want you to be there, being awesome. Love it. #bigpinklink
