But I can't find the original...do you recall me moaning about a crappy article in Triathlete magazine, dissing Spinning instructors? Well I replied, & got published! July issue..on the newstands now.
They have taken a pop at me, but I don't care...Fame at last.

Thanks for taking a stand for all of us. I've heard people say "Oh, you're just a Spinning instructor." and man would I like to take them out on the road and punish them until they went home crying to momma.

I just let my subscription lapse...tired of all of the adds. I do remember an article that talked about Dave Scotts classes...no music, just a hard workout with "the man"...is that what your reply was too?

Somewhere on this site, I am sure that I put up the original article, and my reply, but I could not find it yesterday..it was in a thread that featured a posting from Patrick about an article featuring a review of a spin class in a hispanoc magazine that got him hot under the collar with its inaccuracies...ring any bells?
If it can't be found, then I shall reproduce here, the offending article.

Oh and music can be a huge motivator Dave
Great reply....I especially liked this last part! I'm sure his classes are awesome, but, like you said, there is no reason to bash everyone else.

Britspin thanks for going to bat for us.

RaffCycles I just had that thrown at me by some 'roadies' at work who thought I was one of them until I mentioned that I also teach Spinning, on top of cycling to work daily.

"Isn't that the girly fitness program chicks go to for dance music." I told them to come try one of my classes and let me know how girly it was after ... grrrrr
