Drop in Spin Princess

Aaargh! Just have to vent - tonight in my class, about 1/3 of the way through, a woman waltzed in to the very front row, got on a bike, and proceeded to do whatever she felt like (not following any of my cues) for about 10 minutes or so. Then, she just got off the bike and left!

There - I feel better.

What do you do when this happens in your classes?

(Thanks ;-)

I'm mean and think to myself, ha she couldn't cut it.

My big pet peeve are the chicks who whine about how much they want to lose weight and then never break a sweat in class because they spend the time socializing.

i'll bet she "drops in" in the rest of her life too. just when things get "too hard"(whine, whine), she bails. i am sure the entire class was looking at her like she was a fool.

would never happen at my club... the class takes reservations and is always full and waitlisted.

going back to your post... as an instructor, other than the "drop in spin primcess" how do you feel about it when participants don't take your cues? As a class member, I ignore cues for any number of reasons... the two main ones being cued to stand and grind at a low cadence which hurts my knees, or occasionally I experince a low grade ache and I just go real easy for a while. Does it make a difference for you if you know the person and their commitment to working out?
