SPOGA Experience

Friday, October 30, 2015

Happy Friday, all! I'm actually working today, and I rarely ever work Fridays. But, being that I had yesterday off (my co-worker needed to switch days) I was able to make it to my SPOGA class! For those of you who haven't been reading my blogs, SPOGA is a class at the YMCA where the first 30 minutes is spin, next 30 minutes is yoga. I really wanted to sleep through it again, but I knew I'd regret not going.

I got there early, found the spinning room, and was ready to go! There was 1 person in the room already on a bike - I claimed the bike next to her and explained it was my first time trying this class - or spinning at all. She was very nice and helpful in getting me all set up. The instructor was also fantastic. She knew everybody's name and said hello to them as they came into the room. There was about 8-10 people. The spinning was killer!!! The yoga seemed extra tough too because I was so tired from spinning!

Bottom line, I really enjoyed what a great workout it is and I will be doing it again! My rear is killing me from that damn seat, and apparently it takes about 6 classes to get used to that.... awesome... But it is a great group of people and I think it'll whip me into shape pretty quick too!

Anyway, I don't want this to be too long. I hope everyone has a great and safe Halloween weekend! emoticon

    So glad you went!! I'm glad you enjoyed it! It does take about a week or so to get use to the seat, but once you're adjusted, you're set for life. I took a few months off from spinning and hopped back on the bike and my sit bones were perfectly happy. You just have to keep going for a solid week or so for the pain to go away. Completely worth it though!

    SPOGA sounds awesome. I've never experienced it but I love both of those activities so I'm sure it'd be fun.
    As for the sore butt, it helps to invest in those shorts with the pad in the crotch. They are well worth the money.
    Thanks for sharing!
