It is the Year of the Horse and I saddled up and made a change. I will only teach Spinning/Cycle twice per week. It will be taught as a masterclass for those interested in athletic performance. Bring our goals, share what you are up to, each class is created by the students in the room.
- No bells or whistles
- Emphasis on training
- Minimal entertainment distractions
- Bring HR monitors if you want to supercharge your results.

That’s all. Hope you New Year is going well.
On a google search I found a negative review about myself on some Yelp-like fitness site. I was surprised because I don’t even have an account on that website.
But this being the ago of internet trolls, I must acknowledge a hater is a fan. Who but a fan would post an anonymous rant on a random website I am not affiliated with, and attach my name to it?
Well, since this person hid their light under a bushel, I wanted to share the review with you and address it line by line.
"This guy (ME) thought he was AWESOME."
Hmmm… if I must revert to a high school grading curve I would say on an AWESOME scale of 1-5. I think I am a 4. There’s always room for improvement. The pressure.
"He was super cocky,"
Well, it’s already been said I thought I was AWESOME? Personally, I would have chosen the old standby “arrogant.” I think I picked that up from one of my earliest Spinning teachers Johnny G, the creator of Spinning and the Spinning bike himself.
When I asked Johnny how best to deal with gym members who are there to take and give nothing in return, his response was this.
"Fuck ‘em. If they don’t care, just fuck ‘em. You can’t reach everybody."
Hey, have you seen my Spinning video on The Doctor’s Channel!
"played TERRIBLE music,"
Guilty as charged. I admittedly will never have a career at SoulCycle.
My class is called CYCLE TECHNIQUE. What about that word “technique” implies music appreciation or karaoke? Oh by the way, I also leave the lights on so you can’t zone out but that somehow went unnoticed.
"and his class was the cardio equivalent of a casual round of miniature golf."
What?!?! Who doesn’t love miniature golf? When I play miniature golf I bring the heat, baby.
In closing, a teacher can only teach the teachable. There are far better aerobic entertainers than I and I surrender my clown nose to them.
Thanks for the love,
