Anyssa Close's Playlist
What motivates you to jump on the bike every class?
I find myself continuously jumping back on that bike because spin pushes me to check in with myself and do something for me. Everyone deserves to carve out time for self-care, and for me, clipping in with my closest friends fills my metaphorical cup.
What do you want your riders to get/feel from your class?
I want riders to be given an opportunity to totally disconnect from what's going on outside of the studio walls. When I first started riding, I would book into a class when I needed to clear my head and press the reset button. I want people to have that same opportunity. I want people to forget about the worries that were weighing on them before they clipped in. Through that, I hope that riders can connect to something deeper within them - something healing.
What is your favourite type of music to ride to?
My playlists are full of bass-heavy dance music but I can't help but add in a throwback song or two each class.
