Holy Crap, I’m Gonna Do It

I am getting certified as a spinning instructor.

When I was in a funk last week, I reviewed a list I began on the Day Zero Project ( There it was, staring me in the face: “Get certified to teach spinning.”

I have been contemplating this since 2007/8ish. My main deterrent–ok, excuse–was that training sessions were only held in cities that were a 4+ hour drive. Seeing this goal on my list inspired me to check again–and there is a local training at the end of the month. So here we go.

For as cheap as I am (I can’t possibly spend $2.99 on toothpaste! I need to buy the generic coffee because I’ll save $.003 per cup!!!!!), I didn’t blink an eye to spend the money to register. (For anyone who knows me, this is a big–BIG–deal).

The part of this that feels craziest is that I don’t really have a desire to teach my own class. Sub a class every now and again? Absolutely. Even if I never end up on that bike in the front of the room, I’m satisfied to have the knowledge.

Well, satisfied for now. I have a feeling this class will make me hungry for more.

About spinrunsew

I’m a spinning enthusiast, once-a-year half marathoner, and I can sew damn near anything. The rest is filled with the husband, the puppy, the chickens, and one massive garden.

  1. Nice! You will not regret your decision. I started teaching spin, and have been teaching for a few months now and It has really given me a new love for indoor cycling and made me mentally a stronger athlete. Keep us posted on how it goes!! 🙂

  2. You should say you don’t really want to teach … yet. Because it’s like a drug. Once you get onto that bike, in front of the class, feel their energy, hear their thank yous … you’ll be hooked. I’ve been teaching for a few years now, and it’s the best decision I’ve ever made. You’ll LOVE it! Good luck! 🙂
