A Spin Class To Remember

Before I get to the spin class I have to share a fun picture some of the people in my clinical group took.

St. Kate Nursing Students

This week at the hospital where I am doing clinicals it was their groundbreaking for their new ER!! It was kind of fun. We got this lovely picture taken! Gotta love those construction hats πŸ™‚

Anyways…. onto the main part of this post…. Wednesday morning! Thanks to Katie I got to go to a spin class sponsored by Koss Corporation and led by Dara Torres!!!


Before the spin class started we got to have a little meet and greet with Dara. She is very down to earth and nice. She was very open to questions.

Then it was time to get on the bikes!!


During the class we got to use a pair of FitClip headphones which were designed by Dara and Koss. They are made specifically for women. I immediately fell in LOVE with these headphones. They were so comfortable and they didn’t move once during the class. They suction into your ear so the sound quality is amazing. I will definitely be using them TONS! I needed a new pair of headphones for running.

We also got a pair of the FitBud headphones. I have not tried them while working out yet but if they are anything like the FitClip headphones they will be amazing!

Now for this spin class…. first thank you so much The Shed Fitness in Uptown for hosting this amazing event.

I had not taken a spin class before this…. I was a bit nervous. But I was pleasantly surprised! I actually loved it. The class went by super fast. I had a lot of fun on the bikes and let me tell ya Dara is one tough Spin instructor. I was dripping in sweat by the end of the class.

The only negative thing about spinning is it really hurts my butt. I’m told that after a few classes it wont hurt anymore?! I’m definitely feeling it a few days later. My legs and butt are very sore! I will be taking another spin class very soon. It is something my mom and I can do together because she trains for duathalon’s and tri’s.

I am so thankful that I was able to go to this class. Koss really spoiled us.

We got two sets of headphones and three shirts. I wore the yellow tank for the class and loved it. We also got a tshirt and a 3/4 hooded shirt. They are all super cute.

I also really loved that they hand wrote a note thanking us for coming to the event and acknowledging that they read our blog.

All in all it was an amazing experience and I HIGHLY recommend the FitClips or FitBuds! You can check them out for yourself here.

After the class I wasn’t expecting a surprise when I got home….. my managers at work sent me Get Well Soon flowers!!


I was totally surprised and so thankful. I really love my job and my managers!!! They truly care!


I’m still on my coumadin and lovenox injections. My INR last night was 1.5….. slowly making its way to the 2-3 range. I’m increasing my coumadin over the weekend and going in Monday morning for another blood draw… We will see. I’m hoping by then it will be within the range πŸ™‚

Is it true you butt gets used to spinning??

What type of headphone do you use while you workout?
