Each VIBE instructor has hers or his own mantras. One of my favorites, that helps me push through my VIBE rides is when Ashley says: “Strong legs. Strong beating heart.” When you’re in class, everyone you are surrounded by has a story or even more particularly a health story that you don’t know. Beyond all of these unknown differences, VIBE has brought you together. It might not be a lot in common, but it’s so much more than your passion for spinning. When things get tough in class or in life, when the mountains become too difficult to climb, in this moment we are reminded that we have two strong legs and one strong beating heart, pumping life through our veins. In this moment, where we feel like we are about to be defeated, we are consumed in gratitude for what we have, what gets us through, and for what it feels like to be alive.
