Ok loves…so I’ve gotten a lot of questions lately about a class I took and posted on Instagram here in Washington, DC. The class was called SplashCycle and if you haven’t tried it, I urge you to! You will have a lot of fun, and it’s nice to do something different! But let me give you a quick breakdown of what I thought of the class.
Overall my experience was good. When I arrived at the Embassy Row hotel, I was directed upstairs to the rooftop and that was it. I went to the pool area and it was a cute rooftop! There was a class taking place so I was able to watch for a few minutes to get a vibe for what to expect. There wasn’t a lot of direction as to what to do upon arrival. So I sat and started to talk to a woman that was also waiting for the class, and she wasn’t really sure what to do either. After a few minutes a woman walked up to us with an IPad to check us in. Overall the organization of the class seemed to be lacking. Anyway, so I checked in and got on my bike. The water was cold at first, but of course once I started moving around I warned up and it was fine.
The class started and our instructor was in the water with us, showing us what to do. I’ll say that the class was a lot of fun, and I was there with some friends so we had a great time! There was music playing and the music was great so we were singing and rapping along and living our best lives. The instructor gave us different arm exercises, using the water as resistance which was cool! The spinning portion of the class wasn’t all that difficult in my opinion because the only resistance we had was the water. There’s no added resistance so we never really climbed a “hill”. I think this is a good class for someone that doesn’t workout consistently already. It’s not the hardest thing you’ll ever do, and I didn’t feel sore the next day. So this class is definitely for all levels, because anyone will go and have fun, but don’t go expecting a strenuous workout. Overall, the class was fine. I went with a group of friends, who are all cycling instructors and fitness enthusiasts as well…and we all left with the same sentiments…it was a fun class, but for us it was a 1 time class. We didn’t feel the need to go back, because it really wasn’t that beneficial to our fitness routines.
But I still urge you to try SplashCycle. Gather a group of your friends and book your bikes! You’ll have a lot of fun, and anytime you can move your body is time well spent! And after you take a class at SplashCycle, let me know what you thought!
