At the start of most years many people are all about exercising, getting fit, losing weight, and even more great New Year’s Resolutions.  Jamie Froetschner opened her spin studio, LA Psycle, back at the beginning of October and has been bombarded with interested people ever since.

About LA Psycle’s Owner:

Let me tell you that Jamie is one of the most energetic people that I have ever met in my life. She could motivate a rock to get up and going, which is absolutely wonderful for her role as the instructor. Jamie leads a very active life and is always encouraging all members of the class to push themselves a little harder. Jamie has created a wonderful atmosphere to help people make very healthy life choices.

About LA Psycle: 

There are two options for classes:

  • $5 drop-in
  • $50 for a 5 week pass

Class Times:

  • M- 6:15 p.m. (45 minutes)
  • M/W – 5:30 p.m. (30 minutes)
  • W- 6:15 p.m.  (45 minutes)
  • T/TH – 5:20 a.m. (30 minutes)
  • T/TH – 6:00 a.m. (30 minutes)
  • T/TH – 4:30 p.m. (30 minutes)
  • T/TH – 5:15 p.m. (30 minutes)

The 5 week pass consists of 2- 30 minute sessions or 1 – 45 minute session a week.

The price for drop-in and the 5 week pass are the same. The benefit of the 5-week pass is that you will get to “reserve” your bike.

The classes are always first come first serve, and the 5 week pass people always get their spots before openings are posted to others.

In addition to the classes that are offered, Jamie and her side-kick Kristin, offer drop in classes on most Fridays and Saturdays to help get more people into the classes.

LA Psycle:

Let me tell you that when you enter the LA Psycle studio, you immediately feel ready to have a great time. There is always great music playing, and tons of smiling faces. Larned is a small community so everyone has gotten to know each other very well and everyone is part of a big family. Every single workout leaves you proud of yourself for working hard, and ready to come back and do it again for your next class. I know that I can’t say that about every other type of workout I’ve ever done!

About Spin Class:

Spinning is a specific format of indoor cycling. Only certified Spinning instructors are allowed to teach “Spinning.” Spinning is a cardio workout set to music and led by a certified instructor. Most classes last between 30 and 60 minutes, although some places offer beginner or intro classes that might be shorter. Jamie and Kristin both are Schwinn certified teachers.

Who is Spin For:

Spinning is great for people who want a wonderful motivating workout that they can control at their own pace. Even if you’re not into choreography-based fitness classes, you definitely could still enjoy Spinning because it involves neither rhythm nor complex moves. It is low impact, so it is very suitable for people who might want to help balance out high-impact exercises or people that might have joint problems.

What to Expect Your First Class:

I must tell you that my first class I was completely unaware of what I was about to experience, but I’ve been going to this class since it started, so I can say that it is absolutely a wonderful experience. When you go you will first get fitted appropriately for a bike. After that, you just pedal away until it’s time for class to start. Class usually starts with a warm up song that helps to get your body going. Throughout the songs that you listen to you will experience some ‘climbs’ (Where, yes, you stand and pedal), some ‘sprints’ (You pedal as hard as you can), some ‘hovering’ (you go to sit down, but you don’t actually sit), and them some regular bike pedaling. While you are experiencing each of these different parts of a spin class you also add resistance during each song. After you are done with your songs, you will have a cool down song to help let your body rest. During this cool down song we do arm stretches and leg stretches!

My Thoughts/Experience:

Wow!  I have definitely found myself addicted to my spin class. Since I first started going to class, I have gone at least twice a week. I will tell you that I was a little bit naive to what spin class truly was until I actually was halfway through my very first class. I had no clue that when you go to a spin class you would be standing on your bike and pedaling, as well as hovering. I am very glad that I went ahead and signed up for class that very first time. I was way more out of shape than I could have ever guessed and had a hard time walking that first week. I later realized that I was hovering every time I stood on the bike, and was able to get that fixed, but still my legs were sore. I spent a great deal of time that first week stretching out my legs and walking rather slow. The worst was going to sit down. I had a hard time keeping up the first 2 times I went to class, but was so proud that by the end of the first week I was able to do all that Jamie was doing.

I love that even though I have been doing it for awhile now I am still getting  a great workout. I really like you can make the workout as hard as you are ready for. I have really been pushing myself with the resistance lately and have enjoyed the strength and muscle that I am getting in my legs. I have not heard of a single person that has gone to the class and not become addicted to it :).

LA Psycle:

This wonderful little spin studio is absolutely amazing. You will not only help make your lifestyle a little healthier, but you will gain another family.
