While this is true, so many of you still struggle with finding an exercise you like, and being consistent. To that end, I have decided to start a new monthly column called, Exercise with Annette. I am going in search of all the different fitness options, and giving you my feedback. When you like what you do, it is so much easier to do it. Exercise should be fun, not a daily chore. So let me help you get your body moving again and those pounds melting off.
This month I am featuring a new spin studio that just opened up in Fairfield called ZenRide. I took my first class on Sunday morning, and let me say, it was part exercise, part dance party, and a little piece of Zen. “Zentastic” is what I would call it!
Jessica, the owner and my instructor, made everyone feel right at home. Mind you, it has been a little over a year since I have been on a bike, so I was a bit nervous. No worries though, cause Jessica set me up on the saddle for the perfect ride. She was also great at focusing in on good form throughout the whole class, making sure you stay upright and tension-free (a big plus for beginners). The music was a good mix of classics and new releases making it easy to pedal to the beat. Jessica’s infectious energy and enthusiasm got our adrenaline pumping during this fun and awesome workout. Another bonus was the added arms/biceps/triceps work thrown in. I liked the balance of working both the upper and lower body.
The studio is brand-spanking new with a clean, spa-like quality. You feel instantly at ease when you walk through the front door. Let me tell you, this was a great way to start my Sunday!
For those of you who would like to try a ZenRide, Jessica has offered to teach a complimentary class for my clients and their friends on Tuesday, October 15th (10:45 – 11:45 AM). All levels welcome. If you have been wanting to try a spin class, now is the time. Or, if you have been looking for a new, spacious place to spin, come check it out. Let’s sweat together and crank the music!
Please let me know as soon as possible so I can reserve your bike.
*This is a FREE ride for any first-time riders at ZenRide.
