Super Fly(wheel)

I’ve been in NYC for an eternity. Okay only since Sunday but I swear one day in NY feels like 3 days to me.  I was busy with work so sorry to my friends in NYC if I didn’t reach out.  I’ll be back.  Anyhow, I had lofty ambitions outside of work. I was going to try and different workout every day.  #Fail

However, tonight on my last night, I made it to Flywheel.  It was awesome.  There are 2 Flywheel locations in LA (West Hollywood and Larchmont) but I’ve never been.  Flywheel is indoor cycling but in my opinion it is vastly different from SoulCycle and I firmly believe you can like both.

Here is what I loved about Flywheel:

– I got super sweaty (sweat is fat crying)

– It was over in 45 minutes

– Accountability – Each bike has a little computer that measures your resistance and speed (no more cheating and pretending to put on a full turn)

– Torq Boards – You can choose to have your performance display on leaderboards in class so you can see how you rank against other riders. This was super motivating as I wanted to be first.

– Performance metrics provided in your own private account (snapshot from my account below)

Looks like I’ll be heading East of the 405 more often

Hey Lulu, meet Will…ChillbyWill

I’ve been salivating over my friend Christina’s (and her business partner Corrina Wall) new line of workout gear, Chillbywill, for a few weeks now.  You can only imagine how excited I was to check out her trunk show at Burn60 on Saturday morning.  I’d seen a pair of pants (New Power Crop with skull insert) I wanted on her Instagram feed @chillbywill.   Saturday morning these pants became mine.  Upon returning home from my workout, I decided to put my new pants on.  Even though I’d already worked out my afternoon would be spent at the park playing handball and practicing baseball, thereby justifying my choice in workout clothes. Okay who am I kidding if I could I would wear workout clothes all the time. After all I do live on the Westside of Los Angeles and have a child.   Isn’t workout attire the default uniform?  All joking aside,  my new pants fit me like a glove.  The material sucked me in (this is a good thing) and they were beyond comfortable (not sucked me in like Spanx where I get a stomachache). The pocket on the side was also a great place for my phone and keys.  Running around these pants performed well (meaning they stayed in place, the waist didn’t fall down, etc).  I can’t wait to buy a few more pairs.  Speaking of buying them, you can order them online http://store.chillbywill.com/.

By the way the picture above is the picture I saw on Instagram.  Those are my new pants but that is not my body.  And if you don’t like skulls don’t worry there are other styles to choose from.
