Default XTrain Ride!!!

I am in a state of euphoria after completing Ride. I've owned it a month and was dreading doing it b/c I'm not a big fan of spinning! Wow, Cathe has converted me with this workout. The music is awesome. Thank you Cathe!! You're the best coach ever.

Isn't that a fun workout???
I enjoy Spinning and spin 5-6 times a week, but when I plug in RIDE, I just grin throughout the entire DVD. My other Spin DVDs are true training style rides devoted to improving speed or endurance or strength, but Cathe's RIDE is just pure unadulterated joy. And the 4 premixes are great for mornings when I want a spin, but have only 40 minutes to change clothes, pull out the bike, and workout.
It makes me feel happy all day long. Do you have Cathe's Cycle Max? It's pretty darn good in its own right.

To the above poster, I agree with your enthusiasm! This workout is a joy. I do have Cyclemax and even though I enjoy it, I don't enjoy it nearly as much as Ride. I think her music selection was spot on for Ride. I love how she has you follow the cadence of the song most of the time. I'm very motivated by a great song!
I'll definitely be using this disc often :-)

Ok, now I want these cycling workouts and I thought I was done buying workout DVDs for a while! I don't own a "spin" bike, but I do own a stationary bike. It's been gathering dust for the past year--maybe it's time to use it again!

To Jennifer,

Funny you have mentioned about stationary bike---I can not stop contemplating cycling workout. I do own a stationary bike and tried Ride once and was frustrated! The bike did not fit in with stand cycling. I have been fortunate and was given a used bike and I am thinking of giving ride a second try.
I reckon I will end up purchasing a proper spin bike.

My problem is the pain around groin area is just not bearable! Aie
Can anyone advise on how to handle this?

I know cathe did post advises for Riding newbies but I can not seem to find it anywhere.

Thanks,

The pain will stop after about your 3rd or 4th ride.

The issue i have to face is I am not consistent in Riding---I did it pass years not consistently. I then end up going through the pain over and over again.
The pain stops when there is consistency

I didn't think Cathe had us sitting long enough to develop any type of pain !

I bought a spin bike when Cathe announced there would be a spin DVD with LIS. I'm so glad I did, I love both Cycle Max and Ride. I even put together my own play list when I want my 'country girl' kick!

You girls are enablers! I now want a spin bike!!! I just need to figure out how to get it in the house without my husband noticing! With clothes and shoes it is real easy...my response is "what this old thing?"...not sure he would buy it with a bike!
