Theme Playlist: Goodby Jacoby Ellsbury

 

Spynergy Wellesley, the Boston area's first dedicated cycling studio since 2005, has become noted for creative themed playlists to keep the workouts fun as well as effective.  Our latest?  "Goodbye Jacoby Ellsbury".  Each song carefully chosen to  say goodbye (and good riddance since he chose to go to the Yankees).....

 

 

The Spynergy Wellesley spin studio has provided spin classes to residents of Wellesley, Needham, Newton, Natick, Dover, Weston, Dedham and the Boston area for over 8 years.  Spynergy consistently uses music and video to create entertaining and motivational cardio workouts.

Cycle for Survival....Spinning Event for Cancer Research

 

Spynergy rider Kristin Simonini of Needham is participating in Cycle for Survival this winter --- an event to raise money for rare cancer research. The indoor ride will take place at Equinox in Boston on February 9, and Simonini has asked Spynergy to help raise awareness.

Since 2007, Cycle for Survival has raised over $31 million for cancer research, it is funded by the Memorial Sloane Kettering Cancer Center, which covers the overhead costs allowing 100 percent of the proceeds to go directly to research facilities.

Simonini got involved with the event after her husband was diagnosed with a rare sarcoma in 2008 and she became aware of the lack of research on that type of cancer.  He passed away in 2012.

While individually these cancers are “rare,” when totaled together they make up more than 50 percent of the diagnosed cancers in the United States, according to the Cycle for Survival site.  Simonini is hoping more teams will decide to take part in the Boston event.

“Last year was the first year that Cycle For Survival came to Boston and I’d love to see more teams register and participate and raise funds,” she said. “It is a really high energy and emotionally rewarding day.”

Simonini added, “While sadly there is nothing that can be done for my family, I can at least do my part to ensure other families have more answers and ultimately, a cure.”
