Fresh Spin
The moment I walk through the doors of 360 Energy In Motion, I feel a sense of relaxation and calm. It’s a place where you can find the original Spinning Program. Being a Spinning Instructor for more than 13 years, I offer my students energizing, cycling-inspired rides that use the combination of sound training, principles, expert coaching, inspiring music and a unique mind/body/soul philosophy. The program is both safe and fun, as well as one of the best programs to loose and control your weight. As an instructor, I undergo a comprehensive training that focuses on both athletic and motivational coaching techniques, as well taking on continuing educational courses so that I’m kept updated on the latest developments. The program is both safe and fun, as well as one of the best ways to lose and control your weight. Spinning is about you: You’re the one who has the control on the bike. Proper positioning is essential for everyone for comfort as well as preventing injuries. In a typical class, you burn approximately 500-700 calories. Water, attitude and a one-day-at-a-time perspective are my rules on the bike. Never give-up halfway through because you can always give more than you think. I’m here to show you how.
