Spinning has been the most effective stress-reliever for me and I have put it to the test many times. I've wanted to become an instructor for the past year, an ambition heavily motivated by my "I can do it better" attitude and my general music snobbishness. I hope I can motivate others the way I have been motivated and inspired throughout the years and would love to one day gain "favourite teacher" status.
First class was last Saturday and boy was I nervous!!!!! Did not know where the mic was and didn't know how to work it if I could get over the initial hurdle of finding it, so I screamed out instructions the entire class. Despite this, my track list was an absolute hit and one woman even told me I was her favourite! Mission already accomplished.
Disparate Youth- Santigold
Houdini- Foster the People
