RocKtober

When the calender strikes October, one thing comes to the forefront at Aspen Spin.  That one thing ----- SKI CONDITIONING.   Our entire staff is hitting it hard at the super-posh Aspen Club and Spa.  Since the weather is still awesome we're continuing to hike and bike like bi-atchs.    But, as of today it's www.AspenClub.com  each and every day.

With the help of a wellness counselor at The Aspen Club we designed a daily fitness and nutrition routine that should allow all of us at Aspen Spin to have a healthier, more productive ski season.   So here it is.  Cardio--45 minutes.  Core and strength exercises using the bosu ball, medicine ball and fitness ball and some light weights.  What can we say--we like to ball.  We're concentrating on balance and core specific exercises for skiing ---some of the same ones that Bode Miller does.  The whole thing is followed by some serious stretching.

The most important part of our regime is our training table.  The new in-house restaurant at The Aspen Club is called GARNISH---and it's da bomb!!!  We met with executive chef Clark Church (see pic) and he is cookin' up healthy and nutritious food that actually tastes great and is fully satisfying.  Img_0337 While the grub at GARNISH is not quite as comforting as a whole deep dish pizza (our normal repast), it's balanced, beneficial and totally scrumptious.  Clark, who won the SOUPSKOL competition at WinterSkol last winter has us eating egg white frittata's with shrooms, spinach and sun-dried tomatoes every morning after our intense workout. MMMMM mmmm good.

Yeah, it's off season, but the locals are partying quite hard (see pic).Img_0300    We caught Sean Penn's latest directorial effort --- INTO the WILD---based on the Krakauer book of the same name at the Aspen Film Festival.  INTENSE-- is an understatement.

Also, the annual Forstman Little Conference Conference hosted by "Teddy Bear" Forstman hit Aspen.  Think tankers included Michael Dell, Michael Eisner, Jeff Bezos, Steven Forbes, Mort Zuckerman, Robert Kraft (Patriots owner), George Lucas, David Needleman (Jet Blue), Queen Noor and Colin Powell.  Is every one in this town a billionaire?Img_0317_3

So start your own ski conditioning ----and be ready to RIP.  Ski season 2007/2008 is gonna be siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiick.  Just in case you're wondering ---- that's 2 inches of fresh POW under Carmelo's paws at the top of Smuggler.

Perry Gets OFF!!

PERRY gets OFF!!

Img_0231_2 Just because www.AspenSpin.com is in full off season mode, it doesn't mean we don't wanna ROCK.

Perry Farrell and his fully loaded Satellite Party hit town to play the Belly Up.  Perry loves to party so he pulled up in his bus for a "poor peoples concert" at Ink!! Coffee in town.  Both shows were stellar.  If you don't know who Perry is---do a Wikipedia or something---this guy can bring it.  And remember to book your trips to A-Town at 800-634-7753.
