As many of you already know, I am a certified spin instructor and I am passionate about getting people up off the couch. To that end, I will be conducting a “Learn to Spin” fundraiser on February 10, 2018, at 1 PM at the Scarsdale location of New York Sports Club. The fee for the class is $20 and all proceeds collected will be donated to the American Heart Association, through the WWBA Foundation. This class is aimed at people who are afraid to simply walk in and try a spin class on their own. I will guide you on how to properly set up your bike, correct body alignment, and what the different resistance levels are and how to achieve them. Then, I will take you through an abbreviated halfhour ride where you can put your newfound knowledge to work. This class will be a “safe space” for those who may have been intimidated in this past by this form of exercise. With the proper guidance and introduction, you might love it so much that you become a spin instructor one day too! If you cannot attend the spin class or you simply are not interested in spinning, I encourage you find a cardio format that you enjoy, and then invite a friend to join you in that endeavor. Numerous studies show that working out with a “buddy” increases long-term exercise participation. And, by all means, choose something that is fun. It can be brisk walking, Zumba class, swimming, tennis or other team and individual sports. Raising your heart rate for at least 45 minutes, 3-4 times a week should be your goal. And now I can finally use my catch phrase in a way that makes sense – Lace up your sneakers and meet me in spin class on February 10th! ◗ Editor’s Note “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr. Making Dates and Getting Published NEWSLETTER SUBMISSIONS ❑ Deadline for newsletter submissions is the 12th of the month prior to publication (submissions received after the deadline are subject to the discretion of the editor). ❑ Send submissions as email attachments to Elizabeth Z.
