In Praise Of The Potato

If you don’t eat potatoes because you fear carbs, take a look at this interesting piece from The Atlanta-Journal Consitution. Dietician Carolyn O’Neil gives us a few good reasons to savor our spuds. “Potatoes are nutrition good guys,” she writes. Truer words never were spoken! potato

An Oldie But Goodie: Spin Rage

This storyangerp3 is from a few years ago, but it’s just so insane that I want to share it with you guys. Apparently when one dude in a New York City Spinning class got too loud during his workout, another dude picked him — and his bike! — up and chucked them into a wall.  This is one of the first stories on the topic (the guys eventually ended up suing each other, which you can read about if you so desire), but don’t let Spin rage happen to you!

Recession Fitness: On The Bright Side, Maybe Empty Pockets Make Us Lighter and Faster?

I love a challengpodrunnere as much as the next girl, and this stupid recession is really making me ticked off creative about finding cheap ways to get stuff I want. So in that spirit, check out Podrunner, a site that mixes music for exercise and then lets you download it for free. The mp3 files are available both in steady beats-per-minute formats (like the ones I teach to in class) and in mixed beats-per-minute formats (for interval training). You can download them directly or, if you’re an iTunes user, you can also find them for free under the “Podcasts” section of the iTunes music store. Then just put them on your iPod or mp3 player and you’re good to go. Another mix service, FitMusic, offers similar content but is availble only on  iTunes. Try them out, and if you find a mix you like, post a comment and let us know!

Go-go Gadget Gym Gear!

The International Health, Racquet And Sportsclub Association — a fitness trade group — just wrapped up its international convention in San Francisco. The event allowed participants to preview a lot of gym equipment that may be making its way to a health club near you in the future. Some were just updates on popular equipment, some were totally and completely whackadoodle. Cnet has a cool slideshow of some of the show’s highlights. My favorite? The anti-gravity treadmillhealthgadgets011_540x360. It’s like The Jetsons at the gym!

DATE CHANGE: Free Spin Class

If you signed up for both my Endurance Spin and Spin Boot Camp small group trainings, you’re entitled to a free Spin class that was scheduled to take place on Thursday, April 2. I’m now going to be out of town on that date, so I have to change the date of that free class to 5:30 a.m. on Thursday, May 7.

If you didn’t sign up for both sessions but would like to participate in the May 7 Spin class anyway, it’s $10. Just let me know to expect you!
