Love, Love, Love

This is a true interval ride, the goal of which is to really work with heart rate, taking it on it's own ride. I give a choice of 2 positions...during the the first minute in that position, we raise the heart rate at a comfortable pace (80-85%). During the second minute, it's an all-out push in the same position (92%). Come down for a quick recovery seated flat and do it again. Halfway through the class, I change up the 2 positions. Super-simple, but really effective and a great way for students to test their fitness and to get a chance to choose what they want to ride.

The music started out as a Valentine's Day ride, but I now use it whenever I want to "feel the love." Great energy and effort today...much love!!!

You go girl!
I have been hooked to spinning for the last 3 years. You have been my inspiration and motivation to give it a try myself. Yesterday, I told the class that no one but no one gives the energy that you do. I also have been taking classes around the area and I have to applaud the spinning members at PUMP for their all out 150% effort and spirit each and every time. Thank you sticking it out during this transition,we will all ride this it out together.
Thanks Jen,
Love Petra
