I taught spin at my own gym last night!! I have been teaching at recreation facilities all around Edmonton other than the one I actually workout at on the daily. It was a blast and my mom and neighbour are actually registered in that class so it was nice to have familiar faces in the audience. I love teaching at new facilities and I was stoked to be on my home turf. As always in my spin classes, I want my participants to have the
toughest best time in my class.
I had to impress some of the employees I know at the gym, as well as my mom and neighbour so I put together the BEST playlist I could. I used some of my all-time favourite songs and some of the latest hits. It was so much fun and I didn’t have one song that disappointed! The album descriptions are super vague for my drills and I usually write more detailed notes on my lesson plan but this gives you the general idea in case you want to test it out!
I invited my brother to tag along and attend spin class too, but apparently studying for finals and passing University is more important. Whatever.
While I was picking up a few things at the drugstore yesterday (face moisturizer with SUNSCREEN 😀 and some more Vitamin D… in case you were curious, mom) I saw Perrier on sale. I NEVER have pop or carbonated drinks but I love Perrier as a treat. I bought lemon and orange. It was perfectly refreshing to have a sip after spin class!
Equally as refreshing? This bowl of heaven. I used about 2.5 cups of berries, 1 scoop of vanilla whey protein powder, and less than half a cup of soy milk. In case you look at this photo and think, “Wow Kris, that’s a giant bowl of ice cream,” here are the nutrition stats!
I had a great time teaching at my local gym and I hope to have more subbing opportunities there soon! I love switching it up at different facilities and in the span of 8 days I will be working at 4 different facilities, teaching 5 different classes! I had a check-in with my doctor yesterday just to check on my healing process and all is going well. I didn’t scream when he hit the bottom of my foot which means I am slowly fixing my bone 🙂 I still have a bit to go and he said about 2-3 more weeks of no running to fully heal, but I will be beginning a walk/run recovery plan in no time!
What do YOU do for cross training?
Have you tried ‘nice cream’ yet?
Carbonated beverages, yay or nay?
