Breakaway Spin

Breakaway Spin


[ Music ]>>[Background Music] Hi, my name is Laura,
and Breakaway Class is an indoor cycling class. It’s 45 minutes. We have a different song. Every track is a different kind of work out
so there’s a seated climb, standing climb, seated or standing sprints,
hovers; it’s a really good workout. [ Music ] I broke my shin in my sophomore year
of high school, so I couldn’t run. I couldn’t do much of anything. So I started Spinning, then I was going all
the time; going at least like five days a week. And so by the end of my senior
year of high school I was like oh, I really need to get certified and do
this as a job, so I got certified right after graduating high school, and taught all
summer at a small gym, and then once I came to Cal Poly I auditioned, and now
I work here, and it’s awesome. It’s the best job ever. [ Music ]>>Hi, my name is Jessica Morosoli, and I’ve
been doing Breakaway for about six years. I started back in high school, and
it’s my second year here at Cal Poly, and I found out about them from
the boards up around campus. I look at it as cross training
for track to stay off my legs. Getting off of the hard impact on the ground, and I enjoy spin because
it’s different every time. You have different music. I love going to the beat of the songs,
because it’s really interactive, and it’s nice having someone telling you what to do being authoritative and
keeping that light and fun. I highly recommend it because it’s a great
workout, and you’re having fun while doing it.>>The best part I think is meeting all
of the people that come to my class. I see a lot of familiar faces around campus
and at the Rec Center, and people say hi to me, and I remember names and it’s just really
cool to meet people through a job like this. It’s really fun and the music
is really upbeat, and cool. The thing about Spin that a lot of people are
afraid of is they think that it’s really hard, but it’s really all up to you, as, you
know as yourself you turn the knob. You add the gear yourself, and
I’m not doing that for you. It’s all up to you; I’m just here to encourage. [ Music ]
