My Gratitude Ride: Why I’m Blessed!

By Jennifer Sage On November 22, 2012 No Comments

This morning, Thanksgiving Day 2012, I taught my 90-minute Gratitude Ride in my Spinning class. I just love, love, love this ride! I ask everyone to come with three things in mind that they are grateful for, and we focus on each one of those during three different segments of a long climb about halfway into the ride. When we focus on what we are grateful for, and not on the things we don’t have, we get more of the same and our lives are filled with even more abundance. It’s amazing how the universe works! But it’s also amazing at how effective this is during a cycling class.

“Magical Energy” Spinning Ride

Please come ride it with me – imagine you have a huge climbing goal in the Alpes or Rocky Mountains – this will take you there!

My original Spinning┬« profile “The Gratitude Ride”

Spinning profileIn 2008 I posted my original Gratitude Ride on my blog at the time, Funhogspins. The coaching was specific to the time, but many of the thoughts expressed in this ride can of course still be used. My newest version of The Gratitude Ride was just posted on the ICA website (for ICA members), and has been updated considerably, including the ideas, the coaching, the quotes and the music. And it’s a 90-minute class.

However, anyone can feel free to use this profile that I created four Thanksgivings ago and add your own style and your present-day thoughts. Click here to find it on Funhogspins.

This was back when I taught more of a typical Spinning® style of class. I do things a little different now though.
