Gangnam Style Cycling, Luna Bar Giveaway

September 19, 2012 · 140 comments

It finally happened. My spinning instructor at Equinox had us cycling to YouTube viral hit, Gangnam Style by Psy. Yesterday, I wrote a post for The Laughing Cow community blog sharing my morning to attempt to learn the dance and ended up breaking a sweat. I wrote that I would be surprised if the dance was NOT included in Zumba like classes given its cardio intensity. I guess I wasn’t expecting it so soon but I loved it.

I burned 463 calories during the Cycle Beats class. You are supposed to cycle to the beat of the song that is playing. It’s the only spinning class I do at Equinox. Jeff, the instructor, is entertaining and sings during some of the jams as well. Am I the only one that only increases my bike intensity 70% of the time an instructor says to do so? The class is a perfect 45 minutes.

I despise spinning. The only reason I do it is because it kicks my butt. My body gets used to running. Going for a 60 minute run is easy for me these days because my body has adapted. I need to push myself with intervals to actually see fitness gains from my running these days. Spinning is a battle. I sweat and see results quicker. If I did it regularly though, that would change. Similarly, regular indoor cyclists probably hate running. I’d love to do a triathlon in the near future, so it’s also like training to me. At class, I met reader Brianna! I love when people who read my blog say hello if they see me.Since rain was in the forecast and Tuesday is a cardio day in my fitness schedule, I booked the class first thing in the morning so I would be sure to go. I had a Blueberry Vanilla Luna Fiber bar around 3 pm for a snack. It powered my workout and kept me from getting hungry before class which was at 6:30 pm. I LOVE these bars. I first wrote about them in August. Luna saw and sent me a few of the other flavors to try including Chocolate Raspberry.

I also tried the Peanut Butter Strawberry which was also amazing. The chocolate was probably my least favorite but still good. The reason I like them is because they taste great and are filling. Yes, I am proclaiming that a measly 110 calorie bar is filling. I was shocked when I ate my first. I will admit the price tag for a box is steep for 6 snack bars – $5. You can buy them individually at Whole Foods but really, these should be priced like Kashi granola bars. They are not meals.

2012 08 29 12 21 20They taste like Nutri-grain bars kinda with the fruit filling but taste less processed and better! They have more substance to them and the crunchy topping takes the cake.

Today, you have the chance to enter to win a box of the Luna Fiber bars! Since I loved them, Luna wanted to give one of you the chance to try it for free!

To enter, leave a comment down below letting me know what exercise your body hates! If you do it occasionally for a kick in the butt like I do with spinning, let me know. If not, why do you avoid it?

Winner will be chosen on Sunday 9/23 since I will be down at Fitbloggin’ the rest of the week! If you’re going to be there, let me know down below too. I’ll count it as an entry too!

Disclaimer: I was not compensated for this post but the products shown were sent courtesy of Luna.  I did buy two boxes at Target this weekend with my own money.

Oh those look so yummy! My least favorite workout that I dread is anything involving burpees or box jumps. They kick my but every time…if I didn’t love Crossfit I’d avoid them but they do get thrown into the mix once in awhile and I just grin and bare it.

I really hate using the elliptical. It was the first machine I ever used when I started going to the gym, and about 5 seconds in I was dying. Of course, that was an obvious sign that it was way past time for me to be in the gym, but since that day, I do my best to avoid an elliptical!

PS: Thanks Sarah for all the tips you give! You inspire me to do better! :)

Hey Sara!!
My body dreads any HIIT workout! But I force myself to do at least one a week! I have to convince myself everytime that it’s only 10-15 minutes (depending on the workout) and I always feel great after!
But it’s probably the last thing anyone wants to do at 5am ;)

I am an avid runner and weight lifter and I recently joined a gym that offers spinning. My body hates it but it gives me such a good workout I keep going! I know it is hard because my body isn’t used to it but it’s important to cross train and keep your body guessing!

I avoid running, why mostly I am a little pigeon toed so I just have no grace at all when I run, but I do it because it’s the best cardio I get when I work out.

I am SO not a fan of lunges! They are awkward and require so much effort for me. However, I know they’re good for me and my body, so I’ve made them my fitness goal for this month. I’m doing 40 reverse lunges each day and it’s TOTALLY kickin’ my butt. I’m believing it’s for the best though ;)

I love my long runs but hate interval training. I try to do them at least once a week to push myself. I also tried spinning once a very long time ago and hated it so haven’t been back since. I’ve been working up the courage to try it again!

I love to lift and to do cardio (running/elliptical). I enjoy spinning but don’t do too often so my booty often doesn’t like me the next day! I tend to stray from pull-ups and push-ups! Things i am not great at! Although getting better because the only way to get better is to do them!

I hate mountain climbers. They hurt my hip flexors and thighs, but I do them once every two weeks, just for something different and to challenge myself.
No you’re not the only one who cheats in indoor cycling class. I’m an instructor and I see it all the time. My pet peeve is the ‘hamster legs’ person. They go faster and faster and faster with no resistance and think they are doing something.

Running used to kick my butt although I’m working up to it. I guess it would be lunges. I am terrified of using my weak knee. I try my best to avoid them in bootcamp.

My body hates the happy baby pose in yoga. My hip flexor area is so tight and holding that for any length of time makes me break a sweat. Flexible much??

22 Joan September 19, 2012 at 3:38 pm

My personal trainer gives me hack squats and I almost cry when I do them. I am 5′ 9″ tall and have really long legs. He makes me go all the way to the bottom (where the machine actually hits the safety) and I have to push all the way up instead of half way down 90 degree angle. No breaks, no stops and I have to do 15 reps at heavy weight. It is incredibly hard, but so good for my quads and glutes!! I think my PT gets joy in making me cry on that one!! lol

24 Suzanne September 19, 2012 at 3:43 pm

I hate spinning too – the first time I did it, I had the worst bruises that wouldn’t go away for three weeks. Running is also something that I don’t really like, but I’m trying. I downloaded a Zombie Run game app that scares me into running faster and helps with intervals with “missions” and things. It definitely helps keep me interested when I’d rather stop whenever I see a Starbucks (aka every few blocks lol)

26 Sarah September 19, 2012 at 3:46 pm

I’m the exact opposite of you- spinning, even though it makes me sweat like crazy, is sooo much easier for me than running. My body never quite gets used to running! But it has gotten better, thanks to interval training.

i hate swimming (mostly in pools). i avoid it at all costs (seriously, you cannot pay me enough!). i believe my hatred is due to the cold water temps. i seem to enjoy swimming in the ocean when the water temp is warm.

I’ll do lunges or burpees all day long but it is planks, by far, that are my most hated. I don’t even feel like they should work yet when I get down and do them, I sweat and bellyache (ha!) like a child. Mostly I feel defeated that my weak upper body/core can’t support me.

My body has a love-hate relationship with tabata-style running. Sure, put me through plyometrics in a boot-camp style class and tell me to do tabata that way, but sprints on the treadmill or track are so challenging! But of course, after your done, you feel amazing : )

Hey Sarah! My body absolutely hates squats. Unfortunately, I have seriously injured my knee in the past playing soccer/my knee is misaligned, so anything that bends/puts direct pressure on my knee really hurts. I do not push myself to do them unless I have some sort of extra support. I believe in listening to my body. There are obviously exercises that are hard; however, squats just feel wrong on so many levels.

Spinning is my favourite class! I love how sweaty I get. I usually end up starting off not on the lowest resistance so by the time we are at a higher level I am really working hard to the point where I can’t go any higher on the resistance! I love it!

57 Michela September 19, 2012 at 6:20 pm

The workouts I dread doing, but I find sooooo efficient is any of my Jillian Michaels DVD’s! I have Ripped in 30, 30 Day Shred and Yoga Melt Down. Although I find her banter annoying, her moves work me over, and I am sweating more instensly than any other exercise I do. Whenever I can’t make it out for a run I’ll pop one of those DVD’s and I’ll be sore for a day or two. I also will use NTC at the gym, but my one beef with that is the transition time is short and I find I waste some of the work out time fumbling for gear or getting into position. Still kicks my butt!

58 Carey September 19, 2012 at 6:25 pm

The Insanity workouts kick my butt every time! I have to admit that I’ve never done the 60-day schedule exactly because I’m usually training for a race or traveling which makes it harder, but whenever I feel my fitness level sliding, I put in those DVDs and sweat/ache like crazy!

I avoid climbing stairs outside though because most of them have no backings and I’m always afraid of my shoe getting stuck and taking a tumble.

61 Roni September 19, 2012 at 6:41 pm

I wouldn’t exactly say “hate”, but it would be regular squats and I’d say “boring” instead. As an instructor and also a student, I love combining arm exercises with this particular movement. It adds variety and it can be challenging. Whether you’re putting the weights on your shoulders and then squatting or coming up and doing an overhead press. Squats are amazing for your legs and I love finding different arm movements and patterns to combine with these. I also vary the squats themselves sumo, plie, or regular. So “hate” not really, just “boring” and wanting to keep things fun, so we keep doing them!!!! =-)

62 Lydia September 19, 2012 at 6:43 pm

I swear spinning is all about the instructor and the music. You HAVE to test out a class at Recycle Studio (located on Tremont Street in the South End). It’s unlike any regular spin class. Meredith and Aly have changed my life! Take one of their classes… they are awesome and so inspirational! Meredith has a 7PM tomorrow… just saying… recycle-studio.com

my body hates planks – it somehow hurts my back and doesn’t work my abs at all. but running kicks my butt – i blame it on my short legs i can’t run (i.e. jog) for more than 2-3 miles at a time.

Hill training is my weakness and my legs just hate it so much!

Jump lunges – I seriously HATE them but I know they’re good for me! Generally if I see they’re in the workout I’m doing I will bargain with myself – “okay, this round only take one break” etc. to make them more bearable.

My body hates spinning too! Well, just bikes in general, really. I’ve never been one with wheels… but I push myself to do it because I know that variety is good! YAY HEALTH <3

Burpees. Enough said. :)

Man, I love me some burpees. I guess I’m the weirdo here. What I do hate though is running on a treadmill. Don’t get me wrong, I actually do love running (though I’m definitely not the fastest or long distance runner. But I’m better than I used to be, and that’s what counts!). But as soon as you transport me onto a treadmill I’m out. Maybe because it forces me to be consistent, maybe it’s because those damn Tvs in front of the treadmill prevent me from zoning out, or maybe because I can’t just relax into a run because I can’t stop looking at the mileage or my speed. But if you want to destroy my little derriere with a workout put me on a treadmill.

My body hates running! I do it because I always feel awesome when I get done with a run and like I’ve really accomplished something. Also- like you said, my body feels acclimated to my normal cardio on the elliptical and I need to keep pushing myself :)

I dislike lunges… they are totally brutal… and burpees.

I will say spinning too, it’s just boring to me! Also, lunges. I could do squats all day long, but lunges are the enemy.

BURPEES…burpees are the WORST. I can’t do spin either, too boring for my mind

My body hates HIIT but it seems to do the job. I am thinking of adding Spinning to my routine just can’t seem to get the courage to try it yet.

Hate is such a strong word, but my body really dislikes yoga or anything that doesn’t really get my heart pumping such as running. I’ve only tried it a handful of times and really want to like it, but I don’t!

My body hates most exercise ;) I think bodies can be trained to like things though, like running! My body used to hate running but with a lot of training, I got it to like it and ran a half marathon :)

My body HATES burpees, sqaut jumps, and mountain climbers but I do them because they are great for cardio and for my legs.

I’m the opposite of you, I love spinning and my body hates running. But the rest of me loves it so I do it 2-3 times a week and am trying to get better/stronger at it.

My body hates running! Every now and then I will speed up from a brisk walk and attempt to jog and ease into running, but it hurts my body and slows me down so much! One of these days I will get better, but for now.. I suck!

I body hates all ab exercises. I think I can hold a plank for 15 seconds before body wants to call the whole thing off.

Burpees!!! I avoid them like the plague because I am already uncoordinated enough, they make me feel like an idiot and I get so out of breath after doing only a few I feel that it doesn’t help me get fit and strong! Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

Seems to be a common one so I’m glad it’s not just me…….BURPEES are my butt kickers that I despise! And I love LUNA bars!

I’ve always wanted to try those luna bars but haven’t had a chance yet!

Last year I took a spinning class 2x a week then for the summer I was running all the time.. now trying to take at least one class a week and hate it! Hopefully that will change soon!
