  • Scooter, love em. The 'Black Lace' of Hardcore image
  • Excellent Nam, do you think the dancers do a bit of running if so where
  • Hate loud music when in the gym.

    Went to a BodyPump session once - and hated it. Totally American. Totally over the top. Nothing to do with correct posture or method just 'do it to the music'. Nearly gagged a couple of times. It was soooooooooooo bad.

    Never again.

  • Fez, that's a shame. Pump if taught well, can be a great workout.

    I've taught it and I'm a stickler for correct technique - work hard, or go home is my style. Because they know what I do for a job I always get questions after class about technique which I'm happy to help with.

    Hate it when instructors americanise it with falseness, so cringeworthy. "Whoo-hoo! you guys are awesome!" image etc. NO NEED!! And don't get me started on how uneducated they are on anatomy...

  • I had a spin class this week at the gym taught by a step instructor.

    She didnt bother with the mike and whacked the volume up on the music so noone stood a chance of hearing her. And instead of having her bike at the front of the class - she had us in a circle  - so if you were alongside her - you couldnt hear what she was doing and you couldnt see what she was doing - genius !  I just did my own thing for 45 mins. 

  • That doesn't surprise me Cougie. Saw a good version of spininng at a conference recently - the participants wore HRMs which were displayed on a screen so everyone could see how hard, or not, their fellow bikers were working. The instructor used it to good effect too, with different coloured zones of intensity. No hiding place!

  • oops, spinning (had wine!)
