In honor of the life and music of Olivia Newton-John who passed away this past Monday, August 8, 2022, I am playing some of her songs in my classes this week. She was a big influence in the development of my musical tastes as I grew up loving her music as she began as a country artist, then as her introduction as a musical actress in the roles of Sandy in "Grease" and Kira in "Xanadu", and then on to her meteoric rise as a pop icon with the hit, "Physical". I would often play remixes of her songs in class. So, to Olivia Newton-John, thanks for the music!

Today is the 24th anniversary of my very first spin class as an instructor. August 2, 1998. 24 years ago. Below is a picture of the cassette tape upon which I recorded my first track list. Wow. I never thought I'd still be teaching. But I've always said, when I don't love it anymore or when I'm not having fun, then I'll quit. Well, I'm still having fun and I still love it! Come Ride with me and let's have fun together while staying healthy!

24th Anniversary of my first Ride as an instructor is today, Tuesday, August 2nd! Come Ride with Tommy! at Crunch - West Hollywood, 9:00am!
