This week, I launched a new indoor cycling ride that I will teach at all 3 Mayfair locations over the next 3 weeks.
Why do I teach the same ride 45 times over the 3 weeks?
It’s all about the journey … most fitness classes are designed to appeal to and be as effective for as many as possible. I design my rides to be accessible and enjoyable, but most importantly, I hope to inspire you to learn about yourself … to take these lessons outside the studio into everyday life … also to evolve and enhance your movement, resulting in connected wellness and increased fitness ability. I want everyone in my classes to feel good about their efforts and take note of results. Doing the same ride repeatedly fosters heightened awareness and offers up the opportunity to learn and improve. It also offers me the opportunity as a teacher to help you improve.
The journey that we just completed last week was themed ADAPTATION. I believe that if you are not creating a state of confusion in your workouts, which in turn causes adaptation, you are plateauing. When your body and mind plateau, you become static. When static, you are essentially moving into a state of decline. The opposite of decline is health, wellness, balance, progression, stimulation…and the list goes on.
The journey I launched this week is about THE ART OF MOVING WELL … even when the mind and body are in a state of fatigue … especially when. The art of moving well ensures long term mental and physical wellness. Also the mind learns to deal with healthy levels of discomfort. The strength of the mind is the critical factor with respect to ongoing fitness and wellness. I have chosen the music for this journey to inspire people to move during these dog days of summer. The ride highlights the last 90 seconds of each song and challenges the participant to make a conscious decision as to how they will spend those last 90 seconds. After three weeks of doing this ride, you can expect a healthier approach to not giving in … whether on the bike or everyday life.
I look forward to seeing you on a bike.
