Fitness Friday: My First Cycling Class


 Happy Friday! In an effort to get back to my fit self, I've jumped at every opportunity to workout outside of my regular routines. They say this causes muscle confusion and that's when you really see the change. I was so happy when fellow blogger Christina Coker of Champagne Taste, Beer Budget invited us to a cycling class at newly opened CycleBar at Stone Oak. I've been dying to do this but kind of terrified because my very first cycling class ever was in Puerto Rico with my best friend Kathy (with a Groupon), I almost fell off the bike and totally lost my lunch after the class. It was intense! So, I decided to give it another try, after 5 years from the traumatic experience, and I have to say, it wasn't bad! I threw myself into it and actually even made 9 out of 36! They monitor your progress after you sign in and they even send you an email with your scores for the day. I was very proud of myself! They have pay as you go and package options that are pretty affordable. Plus the instructor, Brittany was the BOMB! She's so motivating and uplifting, just full of life! I loved her! I will definitely be coming back!

Feliz Viernes! Continúo con mis esfuerzos de regresar a estar en forma, así que me he aprovechado de cada oportunidad de hacer ejercicios fuera de mi rutina regular. Dicen que esto cause confusion muscular y ahí es que verdaderamente se vé el cambio. Me alegré cuando mi amiga bloguera, Christina Coker de Champagne Taste, Beer Budget nos invitó a una clase de cycling en el nuevo CycleBar que abrieron en Stone Oak. He estado por tratar esta clase de nuevo, pero con algo de miedo porque la primera vez que lo hice fue en Puerto Rico con mi mejor amiga, Kathy, (con un Groupon) y casi me caigo de la bici Y perdí mi almuerzo después dela clase. Fue súper intenso! Bueno, pues decidí intentarlo de nuevo, a pesar de la experiencia traumática, y debo admitir que no estuvo tan mal! De hecho, me esforcé y logré hacer el 9no lugar de 36! Ellos monitorean tu progreso al anotarse en recepción y te envían tus estadísticas por email luego de la clase. Estoy muy orgullosa de mi! Ellos tienen opciones de pago por clase o paquetes que son  a buen precio. La instructora también fue la mejor! Brittany si que sabe motivar con su alto nivel de energía y actitud positiva. Me encantó! Definitivamente que regreso!


Thanks to Christina Coker of Champagne Taste, Beer Budget
