Jillian’s Spinning: Standing and Spinning

Lately I’ve been feeling really stiff after a long bouts of spinning, and I wondered if I could stand and spin with my miniSpinner.

Being a packrat and being married to a packrat has it’s distinct advantages, because the husband went into the garage and brought out something he had rigged for a tradeshow.


It’s an old tripod with a piece of wood attached. Bonus points for the oilcloth.

My miniSpinner sits perfectly on top. There’s even a bungee cord to hold it since the hub used it for a little laptop.

I need to play with the height a little, but so far it is fabulous!

Standing and spinning!

Anyone want to come spin in my backyard?

    Brilliant! Now I know what to do with one of our seldom used tripods! Your backyard looks like a lovely venue for spinning.

    That’s why I often take a spindle to the airport–a standing up activity while waiting for a flight. Last time I did it, I got surprisingly few weird looks, too.

    What an awesome idea! Now any solution for creating a bar stool that can lower to a regular chair height for spindle spinners? 😀

    I’ll bring some Timbits to munch on while admiring the view of your backyard 😛

    There was a segment on Good Morning America the other day highlighting a man who stood for an entire month. He lost 5 pounds!
