What a great February! Thank you all for your support (not just in February, but always!) but especially of the Sexy Artist Spins in the month of February. I am so blessed! Not only to have so many dedicated, committed, hard-working, fun and sexy people in class each week, but to also have friends who are so gifted and talented and willing to share their talent with us in a unique, different and special class each week. Many thanks again to Guy B, Debby Holiday, Shane Mack, and Jason & deMarco! A very sexy and talented group! Wow! Within the month, I was not only able to mix some of my favorite songs of theirs into my classes, but I was also able to see most of them live! Guy B performed at his CD release and birthday party; Debby Holiday performed an amazing duet with Levi Kreis at Tom Whitman's Player Sundays at Here Lounge; and I saw Shane Mack perform at Genghis Cohen on Fairfax. And I was also introduced into some new music from Jason & deMarco! A very special thanks to Guy, Debby, Shane and Jason & deMarco! Please take a minute to visit their websites and/or myspace pages. I have most of their links on the right hand column of this page. Check 'em out and support 'em!

And yes, this past Saturday, I did play a few songs from Dreamgirls. And Jennifer Hudson won last night at the Oscars! you think there is a connection?...coincidence?...hmmm...

In good health,

Sexy Artist Spins in the month of February continue this week with the appearance of the amazingly talented duo, Jason & deMarco! I'm so excited to have them in class this week. I originally met them a few years ago while working on The Trevor Project's Cracked Xmas event which raises funds for the only nationwide, 24-hour a day, 7-day a week teen suicide prevention hotline for gay and questioning youth. These guys are amazing individuals all the way around - huge hearts, velvet voices, striking appearances, committed feelings (for each other!...they've been together for more than 5 years!), successful careers (they've already had one hit on the Billboard dance charts!) - what's not sexy about any of that?!?!

We are going to be blessed with their presence as well as their talents this Thursday morning, February 22, 2007, 6:30am at Crunch on Sunset. I hope as many of you as possible can make it to this week's Sexy Artist Spin and take part in what I'm sure will be an amazing experience!

As usual, I'll have a selection of their music mixed in the soundtrack to a class that will be high-energy, intense, safe, challenging and fun! I can't wait! I hope to see you there!

Sexy Artist Spins in February: Shane Mack

Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays @ 9:30am
Thursdays @ 6:30am (*Sexy Spin!)

(Miracle Mile location)

Tuesdays @ 6:30am

I'm so excited to have the very talented and sexy Shane Mack joining us for this week's Sexy Artist Spin! He certainly exemplifies both the words sexy and artist. I think he is a little bit John Mayer, maybe a little bit James Taylor, but definitely an amazing voice in his own right. And his lyrics are also amazing. I'm going to throw in a few of Shane's songs in class to get our hearts pumping, to get us sweatin', and to get us all hot - yes, I'm still talking about his music! Shane will be in class spinning right along with us, so I hope you can all make it there as well!

Get up early, get your workout out of the way, and feel better about facing the rest of your day. Get an intense cardio workout. Get exposed to an artist you may not now about...yet! And as always, have a little fun while doing it.

Shane will be playing live at Genghis Cohen (at Fairfax and Melrose) at 9pm on Wednesday, February 21st. Don't miss out on this opportunity to support one of our sexy artists! For more information about this performance and all that is going on with Shane, be sure to check out his myspace page by clicking on his picture!

Sexy Artist Spins in February: Debby Holiday

Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays @ 9:30am
Thursdays @ 6:30am (*Sexy Spin!)

(Miracle Mile location)

Tuesdays @ 6:30am

Last week's Sexy Artist Spin featuring Guy B was off the hook! Thanks to everyone who made it to class early last Thursday morning. And special thanks to Guy B for being there and sharing his talent and overall sexiness with us!

This week, I am honored to feature the music of Debby Holiday! She is as sexy as they come, and she has a talent that won't quit! Debby has had TWO songs climb all the way to the top ten of the Billboard Dance Charts. I'll be playing both of them: "Dive" (#5) and "Half a Mile Away" (#7)! I'll also be playing another one of my favorites of hers, "Bring It On".

Debby has so much going on for her right now. You can hear her singing the theme to the FX series "Dirt" starring Courtney Cox. She's also singing on John Waite's new single, "Universal Soldier". You may have seen her onstage here in LA at the Zephyr Theatre in "The Trials and Tribulations of a Trailer Trash Housewife", a play by the gifted writer and director, Del Shores. Soon, I'll have the privilege to be working with her in the movie version of another play by Del Shores, "Southern Baptist Sissies". By all means, go out and see this movie when it hits theatres because I was fortunate enough to star in the stage production, also at the Zephyr Theatre, and it is an important and award-winning work whose message needs to be heard!

So, I hope to see you in class on Thursday, February 8, 2007, at 6:30am at Crunch on Sunset. We can get a great workout in early, enjoy Debby's amazing talent as well as other music that I've chosen to make the class fun and intense, and then have the rest of your day to go out and save the world!

Sexy Artist Spins in February: Guy B

Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays @ 9:30am
Thursdays @ 6:30am (*Sexy Spin!)

(Miracle Mile location)

Tuesdays @ 6:30am

Many of you have taken my 6:30am indoor cycling class on Thursday mornings at Crunch. Since last summer, this particular class has been labeled "Sexy Spin". I tend to play music that is a little more sexy. I tend to encourage guys to take off their shirts when they get sweaty (I know this is a little sexist, but I don't think I could get away with encouraging women to remove their tops!) The main reason for this is no more than the fact that most of the people that take a 6:30am class do so because it is the only time they can workout due to work or whatever reason. Therefore, I feel that if we are going to be up and working out that early, the least I can do is make class as intense, effective, fun and sexy as possible. Then, we can all go back to our day jobs and get back to saving the world!

Well, as if we weren't having enough fun already, I've added an additional element to Sexy Spins for the month of February. I am blessed to have some friends that are extremely gifted as well as sexy. I thought it would be an amazing experience to add a new twist to class each Thursday morning.

I've invited these huge talents to attend class. I will incorporate a few of their songs in class. The intended result is to spice up class a little more, make it even a little more fun. At the same time, I would hopefully be exposing the talents of these sexy individuals to a new audience.

The first "Sexy Artist Spin" will be Thursday, February 1, 2007. The featured artist will be Guy B. Some of you may know him already. He is also a indoor cycling instructor at Crunch. He has even subbed my classes several times. He is an awesome instructor, and I'm lucky enough to call him a friend. He is a special talent and a special person. I am so excited to share a few of the tracks off of his new album this Thursday. I know you will like him! To learn more about Guy B, visit his website by clicking Guy's picture below.

In good health,
