I arrived just in time to hear two members complaining that the earlier class had no instructor. They were pissed.
Of course I couldn't let a room full of people go without an instructor so I told the members and the manager that I'd teach it.
I rushed in to the class in my street clothes, threw together a quick explanation and then got started. I did the first half of the class wearing a tank top, jeans, and spin shoes. Nice, right?
I used my Don't Back Down ride which has a full recovery song midway. At that point I ran to the locker room, pulled a Clark Kent, and changed in to my gym clothes. Then back to the class to continue teaching.
Wrapped up at 6:30, had a few quick minutes to get settled and then back to teach round two at 6:45. It was chaotic and exhausting.
Both classes are an hour, and coming from a 45 minute class, those extra 15 definitely feel tough.
However it was SO worth it. The members were awesome and so appreciative, plus they LOVED the class, which made my day.
It's very hard to build up a following at a new club or in a new time slot, so subbing is a great way to introduce people to your style and format. Hopefully some of them will convert to my later class.
On a spin related tangent, I tried to check out some new profile ideas at pedal-on.com and it told me I didn't have access to those pages. Did they remove the free content? Anyone?
Well, off to get things done and then segue in to weekend mode. I'm sooooo ready! Have a great weekend and happy father's day!
