This is a humorous account of a cycling class, called “Welcome to Spin Class: You Won’t Last” that appeared in the NY Times last week. I tell you what, I wouldn’t last in this class either! It points out the ridiculousness of many classes these days. Read it for a good laugh!

Congratulations on signing up for spin class. For building muscles and cardio, it’s the best exercise there is. Good on you. Give yourself a hand. You may find the workouts challenging in the beginning, so for you newcomers, a tip:

When class is over, do not leave the gym for 15 minutes. That way when you collapse, our specially trained instructors will be there to call 911. (It also ensures that unattractive strangers will not be stepping over your body.)

Don’t we all feel more confident now?

Great. Let me hear you holler, “Yeah!” Holler like the warrior/athlete/robo-commandos you are, not the pasty little wuss you used to be.

You call that a yell? The wimps in yoga scream louder than that when someone spills water on their mat. Let’s hear it: WA-HOOOOOOOO!!!!! Scream like it hurts. Like the muscles in your thighs are on fire and your lungs are about to explode and you’re bleeding from the ears and you are about to pass out. Yeah, it’s that good.
