Underwater Spin class

I saw this class on the news the other day. It's a spinning class in a swimming pool. You're up to about your chest in the water on a bike. It looked really cool. In some ways, I think the water would make it a little easier. And in others, it would add some resistance and make it harder. Does anyone think they would try it? I've never taken a spinning class but I think I'd like this one. Cathy

Yeah, how long can you hold your breath while "dancing" underwater??! That will be the new competition. I think Carmen Electra will have that one down. No offense to anyone who likes her workouts but she was on that show I watched on FitTv and that's just a joke. I suppose it has it's place if that's what you're into but fitness? I don't think so.

I'd love to join a nice, up with the trends gym. I feel like I'm so out of what's going on in the fitness world with where I am.

:) I know. That thought did occur to me. It would be like someone suggesting something cool for my after school program. I'd look at it the same way. But I just thought it was great the way you both reacted so practically.

We have a new Planet Fitness that I've considered joining. It's nice. Not a lot of atmosphere but a lot of machines, lots of room, it's spotless

don't forget you are talking to a bunch of group fitness instructors! WE'D be the ones "paid" to lug the bikes in and out of the water. none of the gyms i've ever taught at had separate people to take care of things like that. and we wouldn't be paid any extra for the lugging either.


and, as a lap swimmer, i don't like the idea of anything further restricting pool availability for lap swimming.
