WOW! I can't begin to describe how excited I am about this morning's class. Though there were a few bumps along the road in the preparation for this class, it all came together and because of all of you, it turned out better than I could have imagined! The turnout was perfect - a sold out class without turning anyone away! The music turned out to be so much fun (thankfully as I stayed up almost all night putting it together!) And the clothing drive resulted in an amount of clothes to be given to Out Of The Closet (operated by the AIDS Health Foundation) which was probably more than 3 times what was given the last time we did this. WOW! I can't thank all of you enough for your support of this morning's Special Holiday Sexy Spin and your continued support of the Ride with Tommy! You all make it so rewarding and worthwhile for me. I am truly blessed to be doing something I enjoy so much that is also good for so many of us. So again I say thank you, Merry Christmas, and happy holidays to you all!

Here are a few special thank-you's/shoutouts for their help in making the class a over-the-top success:

*my good friend JJ for being the amazing and truly Hunky Sexy Santa and a great friend (as well as an amazing trainer!)
*Kelly, manager of THE VEGGIE GRILL, who provided the $10.00 gift cards for EACH gift bag!
*Laura, manager of STARBUCKS, who provided the VIA packets for each gift bag!
*Chelsea, at ROCKSTAR, who provided the 8 oz. cola-flavored energy drinks for each gift bag!
*JOEY RUBINO, who provided the amazing gift pack given away in the drawing at the end of class (who is also an amazing trainer and instructor of Crunch's Tread Ride Bootcamp - Extreme on Wednesday's at 9:00am!)

and the two members who have overcome extreme personal obstacles to stay committed to their workouts and healthy living:

*BERGEN WILLIAMS - visit her blog, ONE BIG LIFE, to learn more about how she overcame Wilson's Disease and cancer and is now starting up her own vegan baking company, EATME COOKIES! She also donated 2 cookies for each gift bag!
*GLORIA EDEL, visit her blog, 4 LIVERS AND NO FUNERAL, to learn more about all that Gloria has conquered to become such a testament to working out, living healthy and having a positive outlook on life as well as information about the book she has written and about to publish soon! She also donated a signed copy of her unpublished novel for the end-of-class drawing!

Thanks to everyone! Merry Christmas! Happy holidays!

In good health,

Special Holiday Sexy Spin. Tomorrow. Thursday. 7am. Crunch. Give the Shirt Off Your Back to Charity!

Make plans now to attend the last Special Sexy Spin class of the year (actually the last Sexy Spin of the year!) tomorrow morning, Thursday, December 16th at 7:00am! Special guests, special music, prizes, and all kinds of good stuff! Someone said the other day that this is like Oprah’s Favorite Things. Someone else said that we need to rotate (on the new bikes!) and donate! I love it! However you look at it, you will still be able to get the same intense ride, while having even more fun than usual while having the opportunity to give to a great cause, while walking away with some great swag!

We’ll also be doing something a little different but completely appropriate for the season. We will be highlighting a couple of Crunch members who have overcome great difficulties and are not only surviving but thriving because they have chosen a healthy lifestyle. They are willing to share their stories and in so doing, I hope that we all will be inspired even more to be thankful for the health that we have and to commit even more to our own healthy lifestyles and workout routines!

And once again, we will experience the return of the “Give the Shirt Off Your Back (because it’s Sexy Spin after all!)” mini clothes drive! Bring some of your clothes that are nice but that you no longer use and share them with someone that needs them, especially at this time of year. And I’m thinking that a certain special sexy someone will be there to collect them! All clothes collected will be given to “Out of the Closet”, a chain of thrift stores owned and operated by the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, the largest specialized provider of cutting-edge medicine and advocacy regardless of ability to pay. Learn more about them by visiting their website now!

Hope to see you tomorrow morning for Sexy Spin at 7:00am at Crunch on Sunset!

In good health,
