Spin Doctor in the house!
Don Cameron is the famous Spinning instructor at LA Fitness in South Florida. He is so well liked that every one of his classes fill up to capacity! And let me tell you, this is no walk in the park. His class is a killer, and everyone that takes it, loves it! Now you can ask Don his age (as I did)
but he won’t tell. “I like to keep people guessing.”
Don may have snow white hair, and a head full of it, but he’s in better shape than most people half his age.
“I teach 7 days a week just because I love it. It’s a hobby of mine, not what I do for work.”
When Don and I talked after class we discussed how empowering Spinning is for all ages and all body types. He told me a few stories of how some people have tried every fad diet there is, but when they see the benefits of Spinning 3x a week, their fitness level explodes and the pounds come off. He even has Doctors take his class. As most of us know how important diet is, getting your heart rate up is the key to burning calories all day long. This is one class you burn a lot of calories! (That picture was taken after a 900+ calorie class.)
So how does Spinning bring the Athletic Mindset way of thinking up a notch? Speaking from experience, I can tell you not every Spin instructor is a “Don.” Don is a true mental motivator! The music he puts together is well thought out that makes you want to push past the pain
and work hard. He knows when to push you and when to give you a break. And he has a unique way of motivating to help you achieve your personal best. Why does he do it? “Simply because I love to make people feel good. I know after taking my class they are going to feel better than when they walked in!”
When not Spinning Don owns a West Palm Beach franchise of Home Vestors, better known as “We Buy Ugly Houses.” One things for sure… He may buy ugly houses for a living, but he sells motivation to those who want to live a better life!
Here’s to you Dr. Don. Thanks for making a difference!
