Sally Daigle - Expresso Bike Story
Sally and the Daigle family have been members of the Southington Community YMCA for over 20 years, starting at the Y when her eldest son started nursery school.
"I was able to do mommy and me classes with our younger sons while he was in class. The Y became our second home", said Sally.
Over the years her sons took part in just about every sport class we offer. " As they got older I was able to workout while they were all in a class/program."
Sally originally would get her workout through step classes, elliptical, treadmills, then adding in weight training, spin classes and yoga. More recently, Sally says "While I still weight train and do yoga my main source of cardio has become using the Expresso bikes."
Over three years ago, Sally tried the Expresso bikes for the first time. "Since I liked spinning I thought I would give these bikes a try. At first I wasn’t sure if they would be for me. It seemed to much like playing a video game, but soon learned that they were so much more. This was over three years ago. There are over 40 rides to pick from, starting at 1 mile up to 20 miles. Each has a different degree of difficulty. I ride 4 to 6 times a week averaging just under 60 miles a week. I like that each time you ride you can choose to compete with your best time or with someone else’s time. There are monthly competitions which is an incentive to keep riding. During the month of February and the Y Rally I hope to ride over 250 miles."
