Give The People What They Want, Or Teach Them What They Need…

Giving the people what they want isn't nearly as powerful as teaching people what they need. There's always a shortcut available, a way to be a little more ironic, cheaper, more instantly understandable. There's the chance to play into our desire to be entertained and distracted, regardless of the cost.... Or you can dig in, [...]

  If you have ever ridden a bike for exercise, you bought these shoes for your riding.   Take a look at the cleat on your rented Spin shoe. You'll see that it has little bolts and screws to adjust it. Why do you think it is that every cycling shoe sold has adjustable cleats? [...]

Revocycle’s Idea of Fun In Spinning

We fail to see the enjoyment in hearing damage and ringing ears. Contorting and swinging our bodies around in dangerous positions while attempting to get [...]

Was it a 'party'? Did you instructor scream and yell obscenities at you? Did you need earplugs? No? Why not? [...]
