Spinning on my home turf.

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!

spin classsss

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 πŸ˜€ 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!

nice creamm

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 πŸ™‚ 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?


  1. I love Perrier! I usually stick with water and tea but whenever I’m out at a restaurant I always get carbonated water. I also keep a stash of the canned grapefruit flavour in case I’m looking for something fizzy. Is it weird that carbonated water is a treat?

  2. I do love me some soft serve, usually with banana and some berries and quite often protein powder as well. Great playlist!

  3. Haven’t tried ‘nice cream’ yet, but it’s on the list for this week! I’m really happy your foot is on the mend.
    I’d love to say I never drink pop, but the odd coke still slips in from time to time. I know it’s horrible for me but it just tastes so good. lol

  4. That playlist looks awesome! I hope one time I can come to Edmonton and take your class. Sparkling water has been my jam lately. Dasani came out with some great naturally flavoured ones that I’ve been loving. Cheaper than perrier.
