March Madness is by far the best American sporting event of the year. There’s nothing quite like it. Three uninterrupted weeks of extreme highs and lows, surprises, and disappointments. The upsets, crazy comebacks, and buzzer-beater games. And let’s not forget those brackets!
March Madness Passion is Powerful
In my opinion, the best thing about March Madness is the passion. Passion exudes from everyone—from the players to the coaches, the fans to the announcers. In this tournament, if you don’t play your best, you don’t get a second chance. There’s nothing like watching a bunch of college kids put it all on the line, possibly for the last time, pushing the limits of what looks humanly possible, training their minds and bodies to compete at such an intense level and fast pace. These kids play with their hearts, with a win-or-go-home attitude. Only one thing makes a difference: the most passionate team will win it all…
Our March Madness ride takes that energy and brings it into the studio. The ride starts at the beginning of March Madness and brings you through the six rounds of brackets. The first half of the ride focuses on strength-building and drills. As your team progresses through their bracket, the ride gets more challenging as the competition becomes more intense. This interval ride incorporates lots of transitions between hard work and short breaks. The intensity will be high (it is March Madness, after all), so depending on their personal level of conditioning, riders will need to listen to their bodies. Urge them to take a time-out on the bench when needed.
Music chosen is a mix of hip-hop and pop. Additional song suggestions are included in the March Madness playlist if you’re looking for other options, or if you teach a longer class.
Good luck on your brackets!
