Spinervals question

I thought I'd read that you can turn the music off so you can hear Troy and play your own tunes. I just got a 5 pack of DVDs, but I'm not seeing any sort of options menu for this. Was I just making that up or is there a trick I'm missing here?

The early videos do not have that option I think.

Thanks. Next time I'll try some of the later videos in the pack (I started with Have Mercy 1 and Mental Toughness which are early)

Do you really want to hear Coach Troy??

Ok, he gets a bit wearing...I haven't done a spinervals yet, but gave my husband one and often listen to Coach Troy cracking the whip.

haha. I guess I could just mute it all. My tv is kind of far away from my trainer, and I probably wouldn't look at it enough for the gear / HR zone cues.

I may just have to mute the early ones though. The muzak doesn't do it for me.

Yeah my family LOVE to taunt me with coach troy-ism's... Spencer loves to yell 5, 4,3,2, ooonnnnnneeeeee ..... soft pedal... to me.

But I got coach troy back. In 2005 he did IMAZ. Well they had to run by our aid station 4 times, so I would yell a troy-ism at him whenever he came by. He finally said "I can see you are a spinervals fan"...

So I said "yep! And I can finally give it back to you".. Of course I was kidding with him, and I tried not to be too obnoxious. It was all good fun.

He drives me nuts when he goes, "5..." and stops counting then goes, "2,1" really fast. I really want him to just count down the whole 5 seconds.

I'm with you Southernbelle- today I did a spinnerval called "Sufferoramma"

Yikes I sure did suffer! The problem was I couldn't hear his countdown because I was breathing so hard, he seemed to jump from counting how far you had gone- 20 seconds, to how far you had to go 40 seconds-all I know I was sure happy to hear that "ooonnnnne"

Cracked me up when he said at the end- if you do this workout once or twice a week you'll see some improvement- I'll be happy to do that particular workout 1-2 a season!!!
