The journey I’m on with my Peloton Cycle is like anyone else’s quest for fitness. It’s a bike, you get on it and sweat. However the coaches are what makes it an event. The classes combine athletic instruction but they also help you get your life together through the inspiration. One special habit I started was to get up at 4:30am to take Robin Arzon’s Tabata Class. The woman runs ultra-marathons. She quit law school to become a fitness coach. She runs 100-mile marathons. She wrote the book called Shut Up and Run. She’s a force of nature that challenges riders to step up to every workout. A true Tabata workout is 4 minutes of High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) with 20 second max effort and 10 seconds of rest. Lather, rinse, repeat.
My Tabata cycling class is 45 minutes of efforts in that 2-1 ratio. It pushes you to your maximum effort and then leaves you short on recovery time before you commit to doing it again. A session can really tell you who you are, especially if you’re being honest with the exploration of “max effort”. Robin goes into the Pain Cave with us, pushes us, pulls us, drags us across the finish line to wake up the sun (full disclosure, it’s a more reasonable 6am EST but I live in Central so I make the effort to get up to take it live). Once you’re finished you’ve earned your bragging rights and set the tone for your day. Get out the way!
In that spirit, I’ve been dabbling with a personal Art Gallery Wall and created a few prints based on these rides.
They’re available to download in print quality in an 8×10 size.

Go to File on the toolbar then to Print.
The print interface will come up. To print to the 8×10 size check the Print Settings are set to Actual Size and Print.
To resize to a different print size output go into the Printer Properties to choose new paper sizes like 4×6, 5×7, etc and fit to page. Or you can play with the Custom Scaling. Watch the print preview to see how it will look in your output.
You can also easily take the file to FedEx, etc and have them print it for you.
