      • My classes are usually about 55 minutes of “real” work, plus another 5-10 for a cooldown. The biggest difference between RPM and a “freestyle” type class (which is what I teach) is a set class with set music and movements, vs. having freedom to choose your music, resistance, positions, etc.
        I love to throw in a little Outkast every once in a while! Takes me back to my college days …
        (And welcome back to blog world! Haven’t seen you in a while! Computer issues resolved?)

  1. thanks! yes, been getting back into posting again 🙂
    I guess my thinking is that it seems like a lot of songs for one hour! do you cut them off or let them play in their entirety? maybe I am just used to “jams” in RPM, I have noticed a few songs get extended during the bridge to the third verse, for example.

    • Most of the songs are around 4 minutes a piece – some a little shorter, some a little longer. I find it breaks the time up nicely – those super long versions can be killer (and my teaching style is already mean enough)!
