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!
