On the Road to Giro Italiano - March 2014

On Thursday 13 March, 18 brave 40tude supporters donned their Lycra and met at Psycle in Mortimer Street, London W1 to experience firsthand the new fitness workout that is taking London by storm.  With the lights turned low and a series of inspirational tunes pumping out loud, they all worked up quite a sweat under the able instruction of Tameka Small – a Nike athlete and martial arts expert.  Over the course of 45 minutes they spun, clapped, punched and stretched their way to a higher state of physical well being. 

For those who have already committed totaking part in the 2014 Giro Italiano Challenge in October 2014, this was their first opportunity to get the legs pumping and the lungs burning - while sitting alongside those who will be their fellow participants!   It also gave them the chance to reconnect with some past masters of previous challenges.  It was particularly special to share the evening with Drs Michele Marshall and Warren Hyer from St Mark’s Hospital - both of whom were looking dangerously comfortable during the 45-minute Spin.

After all the exertions - and in true 40tude style - there was a post-exercise foray to local bar, Black & Blue, afterwards (and to slightly more familiar surroundings for many!) to catch their breath and connect with friends old and new. 

With our grateful thanks to Colin Waggett - of 40tude fame as well as the mastermind behind Psycle - for hosting the evening and for making everyone feel so welcome.
