Way back when, i lived around the corner from a spin studio. I’d get home from work and walk the 4min and start a session. There was a “good” instructor(?) who led the indoor cycling session, often with TdF footage showing and certainly trying to prep people for outdoor riding (I think in part to get new coaching / life-coach clients). But his session was just 50min or so. Not enough for me. So I went to the class before his, which fit perfectly with my schedule after work. The instructor for this class was a “typical” (in my mind) spin instructor doing jumps, forward / back thingies, and telling people to draw energy from their anger toward her ex boyfriend (or something similarly ridiculous…) which I tunes out, focused on my thing (even her music was terrible) to put in a workout before the “real” session. I kept riding through the end of that class and into the next.
Funny thing was her class was packed and his, while well attended, always had several empty bikes. And I got in two hours “in the saddle” after work. (And with an enjoyable visual atmosphere… this was in Brentwood/Santa Monica, Calif. on Montana Ave. My girlfriend at the time, now my wife, would often come join the second session.)
Do your thing with your daughter. You may want to tell the spin instructor you’re doing your own thing so she doesn’t harp on you or get insulted.
