Has it been one of those days? Have you been hit with the sloth vibes? You know the type of vibe where all you want to do is stay at home, binge watch on Netflix, or flat out have zero energy to carry out throughout the day? How will you muster up the energy to spin at your favorite boutique fitness studio?! UGGH. But wait... YEG Cycle has your back on this one, just keep on reading ;)
CRANK THE BOOMBOX
“Please turn up the music!” *Channeling RiRi*
Bikergang, pick a track that gets you going. You got it? Good, plug it into your stereo on your drive to spin. Now turn up the volume, feel the build up of the song starts to pick up and when that drop hits- immerse yourself in it! Throw yourself a one woman/man show in your car and just lose yourself to the music! This is scientifically proven to be the most effective way to get yourself into the “pick me up” mood you needed! ;)
ACCOUNTABILITY CHECK IN WITH YOUR SPIN BESTIE
Text, call, or go over to your spin bestie’s house and book a ride together! There’s nothing like having a friend to keep you accountable for what you committed yourself to! They are the ones to motivate you and amp you up to prepare you for a class that you’re about to own at! Plus, as a bonus you get to raise your bottles next to each other. If that isn’t love, we don’t know what is!
FOCUS ON THE FEELS
One of the best ways to amp yourself up for spin is to visualize how you'll be feeling afterward. Allow us to paint you a picture. Ready? Okay, here it is - you just finished a killer spin class, your heart is racing and your quads are on fire! You have so much energy and vitality moving through your body and you feel like you can conquer the world! Sounds pretty good right? Keep focusing on how GOOD you’re going to feel after spinning, and that should do the trick ;)
Alright Bikergang, you heard it here first! Now beat the blues and get onto a bike! Whether it’s with your spin bestie, the feels or the music- just get to the studio and leave everything else outside the door! Drop us a line and tell us how you hype yourself up before spin @yegcycle on Instagram!
