I've been going to Spin Class for last 4 year. Always the same thing...1 min. Standing climb, 3 min.seated spin, 5 min standing spin... It gets boring after a while. Does anyone have any other bike techniques, other than these 3 boring spins?

do you always go to the same class with the same instructor?

good music is a big motivator for me and I often do what I want if I feel I need more of a challenge or a rest.

Well, it sounds like it is just the instructor. Do they have a suggestion box, or supervisor you could comment to about the lack of variety? Schedules can be a bear sometimes, but is there some way you could try a diff teacher or facility, even if as a guest in spin class? I was an indoor spinner first, and then road cyclists. I recently took the Spinning Mad Dogg instructor's course, and I must say, my brain feels like it is going to explode at all the possibilities of the different profiles I could design to teach. Ok, it is a ton of work to set up and perfect a ride, but once you have gone thru the pain of designing the lesson plan, and save it as worked, then you have it forever. Sounds like things are just in a rutt, no reason at all to be bored inside. People are downright mean at my gym, they will boycot a teacher, and if the class does not have consistent attendance of a certain number in a period of time, the take it off the schedule. Buh bye. Not that the situation has to be mean spirited like the crazies at my gym, but maybe the teach just needs a refresher to help mix it up?

MIRANDA, could you give me examples of exercises you learned in your spinning course?
