Gym Equipment Expo

Two weeks ago I went to IHRSA, the largest exercise equipment tradeshow of the year. I went to see what is new or interesting in the industry. When I design a home gym for a client I want to make sure I know about the latest, best, most useful exercise equipment out there (besides the Valslide of course!). At this show, I did see a few cool things that I will be sharing with you later. What was really special for me was that I connected with some people I love but had not seen for quite some time.

Me and Johnny G at IHRSA

I am sure you have all heard of Spinning®. What you might not know is that I am one of the original spinners. That’s right; I had the privilege of being coached one-on-one by Johnny G, the creator of Spinning®. We sat side by side on these stationary bikes he had rigged and pedaled furiously while he shared his vision of a group spinning class. I was there when the first spinning centers opened and Johnny would teach 5 classes per day. I was there to witness this phenomenal idea spread around the world! He really wanted people to experience the joy of exercise and help them make the mind-body connection. Johnny G is a true visionary and I am proud to know him and his beautiful wife Jodi.

Well, visionaries never rest on their laurels. Johnny is back with his newest creation, a revolutionary program called “Kranking.” Think cycling for the arms. Check out their website to learn more.

Here is a clip from the show. You can feel the energy.
