Huge Spinning® Event in Italy!

Just returned home from one of the most amazing international Spinning® events I have ever been part of! IMD (International Master Days) Italy, was full of education and off the charts energy! This event was proudly produced by FISpin Academy which is the Italian Spinning Education Partner for Mad Dogg Athletics Inc., and is run by Francesco Sivieri and his partner Barbara D'Onza! Imagine, over 440 bikes in a concert arena with a rocking stage. All I can say is WOW!!!!

Flashback to some of the most badass Spinner® bikes EVER!

Over the last 20 years of being part of the Spinning® program and writing my own story when it comes to pushing the limits of a simple but amazing idea, I have had the opportunity to create rides with themes and intention that both motivate and challenge participates in major events all over the world.

Spinning was a great idea that started over 25 years ago and has now evolved beyond just "feeling the rhythm" or doing 5000+ jumps for the hell of it. With the guidance of many very talented and educated Master Instructors, Coaches, Education Leaders, and true Professional Athletes, it has become a much more in-depth and well rounded program over the years that is based in advanced training, science, safety, and fun. I believe to make anything truly amazing, it takes a great team of people who are willing to work towards a common goal and that's what Mad Dogg Athletics and Spinning® has that no other indoor cycling program can match. At Spinning® it's not just about "one" person, it's about a collaboration of gifted fitness industry leaders that will continue to take the global Spinning brand and evolved method well into the future and beyond. Just like in the Tour de France, it takes a great TEAM to win!  I am very proud to be part of the global Spinning Team because I truly believe in their talent and expertise.

With that said... Here are years worth of amazing bikes that represent something very special!

Devil's Bleeding Crown- Volbeat

Keeping the heavy hitting metal rolling this month! This track (Devil's Bleeding Crown) by Volbeat, will bring the big energy to any Spinning® class. This band has a very distinctive sound that I personally love and your riders will too! Use this track at the end of a big climb or finish the class off with a few big efforts- Either way you can't go wrong with this track!

ROCK STAR- Blue Stahli

Continuing with the HEAVY-ROCKING tracks this month... Wrap your ears around this kick ass track from Blue Stahli, a group I find myself using more and more in class! Love the words! This isn't your trippy fake "change your life" crap. Play this and get your students to just f-ing do it! We are all rock stars and can be awesome if we just try!

Metallica is back!

I can't tell you how much I love this band! I've always been a headbanger at heart and Metallica to me is the best there is. It's so good to see this iconic band get back to their roots and crush it!

FYI- Don't use this track in your Spinning® class! Put it in your iTunes and listen to it when you need some metal to "get it done"!
