Spin Cycle
Bellingham Fitness recently put up signs on the door of the classroom at the facility. No spin shoes! There's a spin class there following my boot camp class. How they do spin class without spin shoes, I didn't really know.

Actually, what I didn't know what spin class was. I kept picturing people doing exercises on sit and spin like contraptions. Or twisting on the floor. Or that it was some sort of Tai-Bo kind of thing that I missed somehow.

One of my boot camp classmates yesterday informed me that it's a class on stationary bikes.

Why it can't be called stationary bike class, I do not know. I don't feel dumb for not knowing. I do feel dumb for thinking of people spinning on their asses. Though there are exercise crazes that are actually that dumb.

Side note: you can come in with me to class on Monday. It's all about bringing friends! Plus, you get 10% off if you sign up for the next boot camp class if you sign up Monday! Any takers? Bueller… Bueller…

Well, now I'm happy to know that I wasn't the only one.

Because spin class sounds more interesting than stationary bike class.

You must come up with a name that captures the imagination to get people involved. This is my whole theory behind the new term "carbon footprint" to replace "fuel consumption".

I like your vision of what you thought spin class was, as well as boot camp. Yes, it sounds better than 'Stationary Bike Class'. If it wasn't up in Bellingham, I'd go.

I was flummoxed the first time I heard about spin classes myself. "Spin shoes" I had never heard of till this post, and I doubt I could pick them out in a lineup.

-raises hand-

Are boots allowed in your boot camp class?

I should offer my own boot camp class.
