I’ve been meaning to post on my Good Vibes experiences since I started the classes back in December 2011 when I purchased three months of unlimited spinning classes at Good Vibes via Groupon. I’m no exercise junkie, by any means – in fact, I genuinely don’t enjoy 99% of exercises, so I’m constantly hunting for one that by some sort of miracle I actually enjoy. Or alternatively, is over and done with as quick as possible with maximum results.
Hence signing up to three months of spinning and wanted to share my thoughts on how it’s been going in case anyone else was thinking of giving it a go, but was a bit intimidated by the stereotype of spinning with shouty instructors and sweating so much you look like you went for a swim.
Just in case you don’t know, spinning is an exercise class based around some pretty hardcore cycling, to loud music, with varied levels of resistance to mimic the effect of going up and down hills.
As a non-exercise junkie, I wasn’t sure I would even be able to cope with the class but I actually loved it. Sure, it was bloody hard work and I felt exhausted afterwards – but in a good way. The only thing I’ve been struggling with is fitting in three classes a week, which I really want to do. I found it easier at the start of the year as Goodvibes used to do a 30min spinning class at lunch which was ideal, but they no longer do it. The classes have also got busier too, so I don’t always manage to get into.
Overall, for my Goodvibes spinning experience…
– Quick, intense classes
– Great music
– Really convenient studio (it’s very close to work)
I don’t like:
– If not bought as a groupon deal, the classes are expensive (the groupon deal made it a bargain though!)
– I wish they still did the 30 min class at lunchtime
