Celebrating 22 Years as an Indoor Cycling Instructor!

Well, we continue to celebrate events...anniversaries, birthdays, holidays...as they continue to roll around every year. Even though this year is so different. In fact, very little is the same. But we celebrate. We celebrate all that has brought us to where we are today. We celebrate all that we hope and aspire to be in the future. 6 months from now. 1 year from now. 5 years from now. We continue to celebrate. And we continue to hope. And we continue to forge on with commitment, strength, determination. It would be so easy to be discouraged. To even give up. Sometimes, that is completely okay. As long as we know the reason why we are giving up. Is it because life threw us a curveball and we realized that thoughts, plans, hopes, and dreams upon which we had been sitting...which we were holding back...which scared us...could now be fully realized? Upon which we could now more assuredly act? Have the doors to the closet within which we were hiding, afraid to fully embrace our new goals and aspirations, now been fully and robustly swung open? Are we ready to hit it out of the park? Or is it because we encountered one of life's road bumps and instead of just slowing down and reassessing all that is before us, we chose to give up and bounce into a safer place? The jolt of a setback. The jerk of a disappointment. The fear and effort too great to continue. The road closed. The future in today's quarantined, stay-at-home-ordered, mask-wearing, social distancing environment is so very uncertain. We are facing times that are unprecedented. But we can choose to live a more rewarding life. One where you truly love yourself. One where you truly love each other. One where you truly love and respect everyone. I truly hope that each of you are able to happily and healthfully make the right decision for yourselves with clear eyes and an open heart and mind. Choose what makes you happy. Choose to have fun! Choose to do what you have always wanted to do. And it may be the very thing you have been doing. Or it may be something brand new. But swing at that curveball. Buckle up your seatbelt just a little bit tighter. Though it seems that every month so far in 2020 has brought us a new and different "challenge" or setback, choose to embrace it and use it to accomplish even more. Because it is a choice. We're in a new environment. A different situation. Choose to make the most of it for yourself. Choose to do it side by side with your brothers and sisters. Choose to support each other. Choose to love each other. Choose. And celebrate. I know I'm being all lofty and philosophical. Maybe it is because I'm celebrating 22 years of being an indoor cycling instructor. That's right. On August 2, 1998, I taught my very first spin class. And here it is August 2, 2020. 22 years later. I never envisioned being an instructor for this long. But I'm sure glad I have been. I am grateful for the opportunities that being an instructor has afforded me. I am so grateful for all the people I have met. For the people with whom I have worked. And I have worked with a lot of people. I am proud to have been employed by Crunch for all of those 22 years. I am glad that I had the chance to work at many other gyms as well. Equinox. Gold's. Sportivo. Meridien. Over the years I have met and instructed many amazing people. Nicole Kidman. Christina Applegate. Queen Latifah. Lisa Rinna. Del Shores. Maggie. Maureen. Maria. Mary. Rose. Gloria. Jason. Jim. Jonathan. Rich. Many who inspire me to this day. I am so lucky to have learned so much doing something that I love. I have always said, "I'll quit when I'm no longer having fun!" Well, I'm still having fun. The current environment isn't allowing me to teach at this particular moment in time, but we will all be riding together again soon. In the meantime, I'm putting to use a lot of what I have learned. I've learned that cycling...or exercise in general...can get us through so much. It can help us live healthier, happier, longer lives. It can make our bodies stronger. It can help us get through difficult and trying times (see...now!) It is so important to take that time for yourself to make yourself stronger, happier, and healthier! Life has thrown us a curveball. We have hit a road bump. Choose to make the most of life. Choose to take on the challenge. Choose to do it! And celebrate when you do! Together. With love.

Wow. It has been a long time since I've posted a tracklist from a class that I've taught at Crunch. That I've taught at all! Almost 4 months! I have to say I was nervous going into it this morning. However, there were only a handful of people in class, so social distancing was not a problem. Everyone wore their mask, so that was not a problem, either. The biggest difference for me was dealing with wearing a mask while trying to teach. It was challenging. I have absolutely no problem with wearing it, but it did create a bit of a challenge. At one point, I got pretty winded during class. Now, I'm not so sure that it was the mask or that I've just really gotten out of shape these past 4 months! Either way, class went pretty smoothly, I'm glad I was there this morning, and I look forward to doing it again next week! I hope to see you there!

In good health (especially in these times!),

Ride with Tommy! Tomorrow morning, Wednesday, July 8, 2020, 7:00am, Crunch - Sunset

It's official! I will be teaching tomorrow morning, Wednesday, July 8, 2020, 7:00am at Crunch on Sunset. It's been a minute since I've taught (since Friday the 13th of March! If that wasn't an omen, I don't know what is!) Crunch has been open for a couple of weeks now, and they have been slowly rolling out the group fitness schedule, including the Ride classes. If you are ready to go back to the gym, and many of you may very well not be ready...and that is completely okay! No pressure. But if you are ready to Ride, if you are already back at Crunch or thinking that you are ready to go back now, I hope to see you tomorrow morning.

Crunch is following all health guidelines from local and state governments to ensure the safety of all of us. Signs and information will be posted throughout the club. But here is a brief rundown of those that will affect us in the spin room specifically:

1. Masks and gloves must be worn at all times in the gym, even during vigorous exercise. If you do not have your own gloves, some will be available in the spin room.
2. There are only 44 bikes in the room (we took 11 bikes out). Only every other bike will be used during a class so that we can follow social distancing as much as possible and no one will be riding next to anyone else. Thus, there will only be a maximum of 22 people in a class.
3. Bikes should be wiped down both before and after class.
4. Employees will have their temperature checked before they teach.

More information regarding Crunch's full compliance of health guidelines can be found on the website.

In good health, now more than ever!

Crunch Fitness on Sunset Closing March 16 - 31, 2020 due to Mayor's Proclamation to fight the Coronavirus

Below is the recent announcement of gym closure by Crunch Fitness on Sunset @crunchsunset. I will miss seeing you all, but I look forward to seeing everyone healthy again as soon as possible! I know that this is a difficult time for all of us. Especially for those of us who work in the industry. But also for those that depend on us for the improvement and/or maintenance of both our physical and mental well-being. Stay active even if it is in your own home! Order food from stores and restaurants for delivery to help support those businesses. Only order or buy reasonable amounts of goods. Be aware that others need those same goods, too. If you do feel sick, call your medical provider/urgent care/ER to determine your best method of action. We will come through this on the other side stronger and even more aware that there is so much more that unites us than that which divides us! In good health and with much love, Tommy
