The Spinmares of YEG Cycle
We all have nightmares about our workplace. Will the elevator break down making me late for work? Will my phone volume accidentally be on and alert everyone when I get a Tinder notification? Will I spill coffee all over my white blouse before my huge presentation?
YEG Cycle motivators are in the spotlight for their entire time instructing. As if they are not nervous enough, there are so many things that could go sideways while motivating – luckily, they haven’t! We asked our motivators to share some of their “spinmares.”
"The week before my first Friends & Family class, I dreamt I was teaching it at my old elementary school. All the old desks were pushed to the side, and there was a floodlight in the room. I get to the podium, check my computer and realize I don't have a playlist made. It's not ideal, but I figure I can quickly scramble one together, EXCEPT that I realize that I have no wifi, my computer is on its last 5% of battery, and I don't have my charger. RIP."
“Falling off my bike during class.”
“The ultimate spinmare—no one showed up to my class”
“I was on the bike and teaching the class but for some reason, no words would leave my mouth—I kept trying to get the words out but nothing.”
“I always dream about sleeping in and not making it to the 6 am class. *Knock on wood”
“My foot was stuck in the pedal and still moving but I couldn’t stop it. The pedal was moving at a high speed and I’m almost having a heart attack.”
“I had a dream once where I was going to the bathroom and my mic was on while I was peeing! Thankfully never happened.”
“I had a dream where went to teach a class and my playlist was completely something I never heard and would never play the actual song it was supposed to.”
If you are nervous about attending spin class, don’t worry – the pros are too!
