    Class Details

    Class Description

    “I don’t think I have time to workout today.” Of course you do! How does 35 minutes of “power riding” sound? Hop on your bike and match the foot speed, gear intensity, and cardio output of this awesome, just over 30 minute Spinning workout, and you’ll have squeezed 70 minutes of effort into a 35-minute, sweat drencher of a challenge! Along the way, listen carefully to any number of tips that can help you re-focus your positioning, technique, and cadence. You do not have time to NOT do this workout.

    Thank you Peter, Yvonne, and Laura! I like the “calm and fun but pushed to the limits…” That is the ultimate goal of the team at SSoD — helping riders generate intrinsic motivation!

    drive to 25. Always love riding with you, Mike. Love learning from you and your music is on point. Thank you, thank you😅

    Great class, I always enjoy Mike as my personal home coach. Sweat started pouring at café mocha. I recommend this class to all.

    Thank you, Mike! It was my first ride with you and it was awesome! I appreciate all your tips about form and cadence throughout the ride. I will be riding with you again soon!

    Welcome Julia!! It is great to have a first-timer! Make sure you check out our other instructors, if you haven’t done so.

    Loved seeing this class show up in the Newly Released classes list today! I needed some solo time on the bike with Zen Master Mike, it was a much needed reminder of how to ride and how to breathe. Thank you!

    Drive to 25: Master Mike, that was an awesome class. I love your instruction and I work hard! Thank you for doing it for us

    User Photo 1803

    Right? Hard work can be relaxing! Riding should not be a “painful” event — it should produce joy upon completion.

    Drive to 25- it was a long, action packed week end and Master Mike’s relaxed style was what I needed, thank you!

    Drive to 25 #28 did Olga’s kettle bell class yesterday & then raked leaves for 2 1/2 hours so my body aches all over. Did Mike’s new class because I knew it would be tough but easier on my joints. Haven’t done a Mike class in a while and Master Mike didn’t disappoint.

    Great class!!! Mike explained what, why and how to do the exercises. It was a high intensity class if you made it to be, which gave me an excellent workout in just 35 minutes this morning! I liked it a lot! Thanks Mike! I am looking forward to more of your classes.

    Drive to 25, #31. Always love a new Zen Master Mike class. This was an awesome way to ease into Monday.

    Drive to 25 – Class 37.
    Thank Mike – on form with this class. A great ‘outdoor’ feeling ride whilst at home!
    Great music and pace to this class – left feeling both worked and refreshed.

    User Photo 1803

    Thanks! If I can replicate an outdoor “feel,” I know the riders are working beyond their capacity because there is one thing left out — coasting. That allows us to condense a 70 minute ride into 35 minutes.

    I’ve been waiting for this class since last week when I saw it was coming up. I absolutely love your classes. Really appreciate your technical tips and your music selection is great – Thanks a bunch

    I always appreciate Mike’s sound, technical rides. The cherry on this cupcake is a mindful recovery ride second song from the end.

    Keep the new music coming.

    Heather Loenen

    User Photo 1803

    Thank you my dear Heather! That song, by the way is by an artist named Matt Simons. The song is “Catch and Release.” It was released in September 2014 and became a hit in the Netherlands, Spain, Portugal, France, Switzerland and Belgium — but not in the U.S. I don’t know why — it is a beautiful piece of writing.

    “Drive to 25” # 101..Yess..a new Mike class..it’s always a pleasure to ride with you Mike..always a learning curve .lo ed this one and look forward to many many more..cheers.!!

    User Photo 38642

    My first time doing one of your spins (I am kinda new). I loved it!!! The one two one two threes took me above max. I had to slow them down a tad to get me even close to max. I will work at it!

    User Photo 1803

    Welcome Jennifer!! So glad you tried one of my classes. For some, it takes a few times to get used to my style, so I hope you stick with it.

    User Photo 14470

    Drive to 25: I love the 1-2-3 combo! it crashes my legs and makes my heart rate skyrocket….thank you Mr. Mike!

    User Photo 1803

    Annalisa, the 1-2-3’s are a great way to train for “breakaways” — sudden maximum bursts designed to destroy the legs of others while developing your own!

    Drive to 25 – (way behind but still spinning) loved this class. Totally different feel but can’t wait to repeat this one

    User Photo 35916

    Driveto25 #53 Don’t let Mike’s calm demeanor fool you. You’re still going to work and you’re still going to sweat! Thanks Mike, great workout!

    User Photo 1803

    Thank you Karen. I know I’ve connected with the riders when I receive comments regarding the “calm” feeling of hard work. That means a lot to me because it indicates you understand the essence of strong riding.

    User Photo 2982

    Love the class Mike!! you are the cycling guru of Studio Sweat. Liked the drills especially the third one in (slow slow fast one!) encouraging coaching as always too!!

    Drive to 25 – # 11. Love the classes with Master Mike! The rides are difficult but peaceful and I truly enjoy them!! Glad you’re back!!

    Oops – didn’t think about my choice of words and hope no one was offended. Thanks for having a sense of humor Mike!

    Drive to 25 #91 love you Master Mike! Thanks for another awesome class. Thanks for all the tips/reminders. Love the last song.

    Drive to 25. #26
    Once again, I loved it. I enjoy Mike’s style of teaching. Feeling renewed! Loved the music and the class!

    Drive to 25-I always push harder when theres only 30 minutes even though I followed this with another 30min one! Enjoyed it!

    User Photo 1803

    Thank you Corliee. I spend quite a bit of time searching for non-traditional songs that can be blended into the ride. That is part of the “calming” effect of riding. Great music should remove “time” from your awareness. It makes you feel you are “floating” above a linear world.

    User Photo 31054

    What a great class and reminder of how high our mileage gets with you as our legs work more than our wheel! Thank you Mike for a great ride !

    Thanks Mike for a short, steady, strong ride. Fatigued and with a torn labrum since August, I wasn’t planning on a ride today, and then you popped up 💖 Your music choices are AMAZING! Focused and ready for my work week now.

    User Photo 326

    Drive to 25/20 Down to the wire! I am adding this one to favorites! Thanks Mike! I enjoyed the few minutes of recovery ride at the end! I also enjoyed the music. You have a very different style than the other trainers. I always work hard…but somehow the workout feels different. Love the options and variety on SSOD!!

    User Photo 35910

    Thanks for a great Sunday evening ride! Perfect way to end a busy weekend and head into the week on the right track!

    Hi Mike
    What can I say 😅😊
    As always
    Riding with you is always a pleasure!
    Thanks for the sweat 😅😅👍🏼

    Not only do I get an awesome ride with you Mr. Mike….I learn how to ride better and get more out of my rides!! GREAT!!

    Why, why, why didn’t I do this class before? The pace and form cues brought me back to good spinning technique; it’s like a private spin class with the Master. Thx Mike!

    Thank you! As someone with cystic fibrosis who struggles to breath during most activities, your cadence, guidance, and class set up always seem to help me breath better! This is easily my new favorite, thank you agaim, Mike!

    User Photo 21018

    Classic Mike. Great play list, excellent instruction. I love 30 minute spins because that is all I have time for. Thanks Mike.

    Another great class with the Zen Master, Mike, I always get much more than a good workout. Lesson for the day, Catch & Release!

    User Photo 17844

    Hi Mike – This is a very cool style. Great workout – sweating buckets, yet relaxed – there’s just something about your intensity, the breaks and your tone make the class go by fast and I just feel great afterwards. Thank you! Jan

    This class is FLAWLESS – for a 30 min ride the leg work and calorie burn i can get out of it is incredible.
    To explain ! – the ride, whilst I’m REALLY working hard on each stroke and maintaining good form – also feels effortless.
    A pure Zen ride.

    Mike, this is my favorite ride. I typically like a solid 45-60min ride BUT for regardless of if I’m short on time or not, your style is spot on which makes this an auto go to! Thanks!

    Thx great ride. I lived the music. Some of us older folks like me can’t stand some of the music others are playing.

    “Hell Week”. Workout day 2 and today was my double day. First Brian wrung out the sweat with spin/core then a short break followed by Mikes great Zen-like cruise. I need a day off!

    User Photo 22886

    Hell Week! #3/6
    Mike, I just love your classes! Seriously, every time I take one of your classes I say myself why don’t I do Mike’s classes more often. They’re so therapeutic and still very sweaty!

    User Photo 20389

    Hell week #4 ~ sneaky challenging…… sweating like crazy! I did have time to work out after all…. thanks Mike

    As always, I enjoy the push up into the 90% MHR and then the active recovery. This is the route to achieve true cardio health. Thanks again for a great spin. I’ll be rerunning this ride several times next week.

    Liked this class. Spun a lot a while back but classes at gym went bye bye so no more spinning. Bought a new Keiser Bike for the basement and gearing up again. Great ride to start up again and get the legs and nether region back in shape. Looking forward to longer and more difficult rides. Love it.

    Hell Week. Great ride. This is an excellent video to learn proper form. Proper form will reduce injury and increase power.

    Mike –

    Thank you for the attention that you put into every single session. You are my wife and my favorite instructor hands down. No slight to the others, of course. It is evident that you are mindful of every class that you teach and we are very grateful! Thanks and we will see you on the bikes soon!

    Hell Week #4. I really liked this class and wasn’t expecting it to be as challenging as it ended up being.

    User Photo 22713

    Hell Week – in a day Part 4 ..Mike ..this class is right up there as one of my favourites of yours and trust me. There’s many..just awesome coaching ..drills music and riding..thank you.!!

    User Photo 36910

    Thanks Mike! I needed a tough but shorter class and you nailed it with this one! Great music ~ I’m adding several new songs to my playlists! Thanks again for the gentle guidance but tough workload!

    User Photo 17844

    Hi Mike! Started with this one on my Monday morning and the beginning of a tough work week. GREAT workout! Sets the stage for tackling it! Thanks for making my day! Jan

    SSNY 2018 Week 4 #1 – I loved the technical aspects of this class. I really don’t know much about spinning and I felt this helped me understand more. Also loved the diverse music. Thanks for a good workout start to the week!

    User Photo 17844

    Hi Mike! This workout and your demeanor is a perfect way to start an early Sunday morning. You thank us – I thank YOU! Jan

    Now i see why your referred to as master Mike. what an amazing class !
    The entire SSoD instructors are amazing you each have a special touch. Thank you guys for what you do

    Ah Mike, what a gift today.
    I semi randomly chose this class, being short on time and wanting a tough focused class.
    It was perfect. I can’t remember another time I actually underestimated how far into the class I was. When I thought I had done about 14 minutes I was at 24, and then I figured about 28min and was at 31…to me that means I was really able to zone everything else out and just ride. And love the ending song.
    Thanks again.
    Karen
