Meet The Master Spinner in Manchester

Manchester’s Spin Factory brings first Master Instructor to the city!

Manchester’s Spin Factory, the biggest Spinning facility in Europe, is going even bigger by bringing one of only a handful of Spinning Master Instructors in the world, to Manchester at the end of September for a series of special classes held at both its venues.

The Spin Factory, with PAYG sites in both the City Centre and at the Airport, are running two days of classes with Sarah Morelli, Master Instructor, set to challenge Spinners mentally and physically with the immersive Spinning Programme.

On the 25th and 26th of September, Morelli will be bringing her expertise to both sites to run limited classes for Manchester’s devoted spinners. Morelli, who has been a Master Instructor, the highest level of spinning instructor in the world since 1999 is excited to bring her knowledge to Manchester for the first time.

“I teach spinning because it makes me smile. It lets me let go of my day, and it allows me to help people. To me that’s what spinning is about, it’s about helping people to be fit, healthy and well, and that’s what I want to bring to Manchester.”

The Spin Factory is the biggest spin facility of its kind in Europe, with more than 60 bikes and 70 classes a week. The City Centre location is situated under the railway arches just a stone’s throw from Spinningfields (where else!?), it is already proving popular with city workers and dwellers alike. Sarah’s classes will be held here on Friday 25th September. Then she will be hosting two more classes on Saturday 26th September at the upmarket location near Manchester Airport, also the home to a Wattbike training studio.

Ross Sommers, Head Spinner of The Spin Factory says “This is a real treat for our members. Once you get in to spinning, it's hard to stop being into spinning. Spinners are always looking to push themselves further and get even better – and what better way to push yourself than by getting one of the top instructors in the world to put you through your paces?”

Bookings can only be made on the Spin Factory App where the whole Spin Factory Timetable can be found. Readers need to download the app on the App Store by searching Spin Factory. Regular Spinning classes available from £4 a class, and specialised cycle training on Wattbikes starts at £10.

Thumbs Up #2

Second post in the mini review series, here are my current faves!

Travalo Atomiser: Easy to fill, portable and good for freshening up!

Milkshake Conditioning Leave In Foam: I tried this out at Elegance Salon in Hyde and it is amazing if your hair is a little unruly like mine!

Clarins Aftersun: This stuff is the best of the best. A firm family fave, this will definitely be coming with me to Marbs at the end of September!

BlanX Whitening Toothpaste: I've been using this for a while now and I really like it.

Bare Minerals Pop of Passion Cheek Balm (Posy Passion): I was sent this for review for a couple of months back and I absolutely love it for a no makeup makeup look! It gives a fresh look with a nice pinky tone.

Essence Lipstick (07 Natural Beauty): For £1.49 this lipstick is AMAZING! I definitely want to get more shades, they are a lovely formula, colour and consistency and super cheap!

La Roche Posay Dark Circle Skin Evening Corrector: This stuff is unreal. As I have got older and dark circles have magically appeared, this stuff literally erases them before your eyes. Definitely worth a try :)

Manchester Eats: Love Pizza

Who doesn't love Pizza?!

I am hoping this post misses the beady eyes of my personal trainer because forgive me I have diet sinned!! :)

Love Pizza got in touch to tell me all about their concept; stone baked, handcrafted pizzas, delivered. Simple. As. Now, I will admit to being somewhat of a pizza snob, I feel once you go dominoes it can be quite hard to find a rival and let's just say, I FOUND ONE.

Me and my flatmate sampled a few of the dishes on the menu and each one was delicious, not too greasy or heavy and we were very impressed with the speed of delivery, professional appearance of the driver and seriously yummy food.

I also really liked how varied the menu was in terms of pizzas, sides, sweets and drinks which personally really attracts me to use Love Pizza again.

The pizzas are really fresh and obviously handcrafted. I think with the chains, in order to guarantee consistency and reliability of supplies ordering, it's very numbers driven and slightly McDonalds style 'fast food' with the least amount of human thought into the construction of the food as possible. Love Pizza really isn't like that. It's awesome pizza, delivered.

I would highly recommend you give them a go! :)
