We managed to get a guest pass for my boyfriends gym and he was up for trying out a spinning class to see what all the fuss was about - I absolutely LOVE spinning!
Spinning can be an extremely intense work out depending on what you make of it. I love to push it as hard as I really can because you do sweat like crazy and feel super powered afterwards, you're truly knackered but somehow feel completely re-energised at the same time, its awesome!
We went to the Reebok gym at Canary Wharf which is far superior to my little one in Mayfair. I am actually tempted to sign up to the Reebok but because its not near where I work I know by the time I make my way home I have more of an excuse not to go.

I seriously don't understand people that join a gym class and do their own thing, especially on a bike, you may as well go out on the gym floor and work out.
Unfortunately the ex-army guy doesn't take the spin classes anymore so today felt even better for me. (My boyfriend probably not so much, his legs were already in pain from his sessions that week!) I joke with Andrew how I want the ex-army guy to do the classes again, not just because I really enjoy his class but he reminds me of Stonebridge, from the TV series Stike Back (hot!)
Reebok also has some really nice changing rooms, I was telling Andrew how I even liked the sandalwood body wash in the showers (apparently he didn't have anything like that so maybe they just look after the girls!) hair straighteners are even complimentary to use, as well as the usual towels and hairdryers.

We are now officially exhausted and I think I am going off to have a hot bath with some Lush bath bombs!
Oooo, Andrew's just sent me over a delicious looking snack I may have to eat first!
