Join Us for an Online Spin Class

June 20, 2019

ORIGINAL POST (JUNE 20, 2019) – We’re excited to announce and invite you to Spin For Life’s first online spin class. On Monday, June 24, 2019 at 7:00 PM in Calgary, our co-founder, Stephen Klintberg Nagy, will host an interactive and fun class. Join us on Facebook Live (either on a bike or not) to get in a workout and hear more about our first event happening in April of 2020. Plus, ask Stephen your questions and get an immediate answer.

If you’re registered as a Spinner come prepared with fundraising questions and if you’re on the fence about registering let us know what could change your mind.

Click here for the Facebook Live event details and then head over to our Facebook Page on Monday night. Have your questions ready to go!

UPDATE (JUNE 25, 2019) – Thanks to everyone who tuned in for our first ever Facebook Live spin class last night. And thanks for bringing good questions for Stephen. We’ve uploaded the whole one-hour session to YouTube so if you missed out you can see what Stephen had to say and work out along with him. The full video is embedded below.

Inclusive

Spin For Life values inclusion and removing barriers to entry for participation; any skill level, beginner to pro, is encouraged to join. There’s no need for any special equipment or gear – alongside 180 spin bikes, Spin For Life is equipped with low-impact floor and arm pedal machines. Spinners are in a controlled indoor environment where the risk is low, medical support is always close-at-hand, and the weather won’t affect the experience. Our participants’ physical and fundraising commitments are also designed to be manageable challenges: one hour of sweat with a minimum $1,000 raised for charity.

Impactful

Thanks to our growing list of like-minded sponsors and patrons, 100% of donations stay with the Canadian Cancer Society. With each event, Spin For Life aims to raise a minimum of $1.44 million with new host cities being added every year for a ten year goal of $180 million. Tax receiptable donations can be allocated to any of three categories: Clinical Trials, Wheels of Hope, or the Alberta Cancer Research Fund (which was specially created to be funded by Spin For Life). Even in our first year, we are aiming to break the World Record for most money raised with a static cycling event.

Immersive

Over the course of eight hours, our Spinners will collectively ride the circumference of the world: 40,075 km. Each hour is themed around distinct global landscapes with LED screens, theatre lighting, and mapped projections transporting participants through a beautiful, challenging, and cathartic experience. Emcees and Instructors will lead the music-filled Spin Hours, introducing stories of cancer heroes, researchers, clinicians, and remembrances of those we have lost. All culminating in a world record ceremony and on-site after party when we finish spinning around the globe!
