Thursdays

Indoor Cycling with Crystal Stauffer
7:15 a.m. to 8:15 a.m. – click here to join via Zoom, password is: Sweat

Velocity is an indoor rhythm-riding cycle class that normally takes place on a stationary bike in a dark room with black lights at North Corner Studios (NCS) in Everett, WA. Inspiring and catchy music is used to motivate participants while they ride to the beat of the music (as opposed to traditional spinning classes where the concept of interval riding is used), and sometimes “dance on the bike”. The goal is to sweat, get lost in the music, and push yourself beyond what you believe is possible.  If you own a stationary bike or a bike trainer, give it a try – you will surprise yourself!

Crystal Stauffer is a RN on the TSICU at Harborview Medical Center. She’s been a Zumba Instructor for seven years, and started coaching rhythm riding cycle classes about a year ago. Crystal shares that, “As many of you are aware, working in healthcare can leave one feeling stressed out and emotionally drained. While there are many habits we could pick up to cope with the effects that our work has on our personal lives, I have found the best medicine to be exercise through music. Science has shown that music improves your mood, and when you combine that with the overall health benefits s of exercise – you can’t lose!”

This is awesome! Thank you for offering this and creating community!

This is so amazing–thank you for putting this content together and making it available online!! I enjoyed the Zumba (or should it be called “Zoomba”?) class this afternoon with Dalya; at one point I saw 81 people participating, with at least 28 videos going all at once! I felt so connected at a time when I am sure everyone has a little cabin fever! One ask I have is that you make this content available to share with friends and family who don’t have a UW netID.

Thank you again for giving people the connection and exercise we need and crave!
