1. Just a reminder from Monday’s post: This is an open invitation for anybody located in or around the Boston area to attend Lisa’s spin class tomorrow (Saturday).
You can check out the spin studio HERE.
And you can sign up for Lisa’s class at 9AM HERE.
Everyone who attends, if they choose, can introduce themselves to Lisa after the class – I promise she won’t bite – and then give her their email address. From there I’ll send you a coupon code for one FREE month of my Premium Workout Group over on WeightTraining.com.
Even if you’d prefer not to take part in my group, and you just want to head in and get your ass kicked for 45 minutes, Lisa is pretty much the best spin instructor in the city as detailed by this glowing review below:

Thing is: most trainees butcher them and often fail to reap all their benefits. Here are some thoughts on common mistakes and how to address them:
