You Can Spin It!

I'm really into staying in shape and eating healthy. I love trying new things and challenging my fitness level! I know that there are many people out there that are trying to get into shape but get bored with the same old routine on the elliptical or are scared at the thought of running; I know that I used to be that way! I actually suffer from allergy induced asthma meaning, that when a normal person's allergies act up and they get itchy watery eyes or a runny nose, I get the feeling of a tight and heavy chest. It feels as if I had an elephant sitting on my chest and I need to take super deep breaths in order to breathe properly. The only way I was able to relieve the feeling temporary was to take puffs from my inhaler, which I absolutely hated. My inhaler made me feel jittery and like I couldn't sit still. One day I turned toward exercise just to see if it would help, and it sort of did. Granite, it didn't work on the first day I exercised, but I promised myself to stick with it for at least a month to see if there would be any results. The first full fledged cardio activity I got into was Spinning. Spinning is indoor cycling class that is usually held at a gym. Its great during those hot Summers when you don't want to exercise outdoors! When I first started it I was terrified that I wasn't going to be able to keep up because I felt as if it were only people that were in shape were going to the classes. Luckily, that was not the case, Spinning is a great workout that is low impact on your joints and you can take it at your own level. I've been doing Spin (and other workouts) at the gym for over 2 years now and I absolutely love it! My lungs have become a lot stronger and things that I never imagined doing before I am now able to do it. I don't even need my inhaler anymore because of my strength now. I highly recommend finding a gym near you that offers Spin classes. You can visit this website and get a free pass to take a class! All you have to do is type your zip code in the box at the top of the page. Then a list of gyms near you that hold the classes will pop up. Look for an icon on the side that says "Free Pass," that means that you can take this class for free once. Click the icon and print out your free pass. Then grab your gym gear and your good to go!
