I had the opportunity to take part in a Flywheel class the other day in Philly, sponsored by Snap Kitchen, and I admit, I had no idea what to expect when I walked in. It was a packed room, with every single bike filled, and a little bit intimidating, but the instructors and staff could not have been nicer and they definitely made it easy for a first-timer like myself to get in the groove of things. The place itself was open and clean and everything you could possibly need, from towels, to bike shoes, to cute apparel for purchase were on-hand. The workout was definitely intense, but as I found a rhythm, it was awesome, and just what I needed. After lots of traveling lately, I have hardly worked out and it felt so good to sweat it out for 45 minutes with a motivating playlist and encouraging teacher. And because it was a learn-as-you-go process for me, I wasn’t anticipating any upper body conditioning, but halfway through, we pulled out light weights and incorporated arm exercises, too. The time flew by and instead of feeling wiped out, I left feeling more energized than I had in a while. And on our way out, we were treated to a convenient, healthy, post-workout lunch that was packed with greens, grains and protein. Snap Kitchen makes it easy to eat well even when short on time, so be sure to check out their locations HERE.
