My First CycleFit Class...

Tuesday, November 22, 2011

My gym has a CycleFit class, and Intro to CycleFit class which I have eyeballed on the schedule a time or two and pondered trying. My youngest sister was available tonight so we hit up the class together - both our first time. The instructor was super helpful in helping us get set up before class - making sure the level of the seat was adjusted to the right height and distance, and that we understood the gears, and footholds. Super great guy! Class started, and in the first 3 minutes I seriously questioned whether I would make it through the 30 minutes! The cycling part wasn't soo bad - I could certainly use the challenge and build the ability/endurance for it. But the seat - it's awful!!!! It hurt my butt and lady-bits so much, I didn't know what was worse standing or sitting. I even asked another woman after class if there is something I was missing about how to sit on the seat, a trick perhaps? No such luck! I honestly feel bruised and numb - I don't know how else to explain it. Ugh. The instructor was super enthusiastic though, and played music with appropriate tempos to build us up and then slow us down. He did say to work at our own pace if we couldn't work at the pace/level that he was pushing for. I really give him lots of credit. Yay to trying new things!!! But I think that CycleFit is something I'm not going to be attending regularly. At least for now. It's not that it's something I "can't" do... I just simply don't ENJOY this feeling right now. I'm going to chalk it up on my "Try Again In The Future" list for now anyway.

    Yeah I can't handle those seats either, unless there is a secret trick that no one is telling is! Ouch!
