Saturday, July 5th:

60 minute spin class, with a couple pauses, as a big, strong-looking guy taking spin with his girlfriend for the first time slipped off the bike after the second song, walked to the hallway, slid down the wall, and then lay down and fainted. Instructor jumped off her bike to attend to him, two nurses from the hospital across the street from the gym who were in spin class also got p
off their bikes, and the rest of the class just looked scared while everyone pedaled diligently, even though the Bruno Mars song repeated about three times.
60 minutes Pilates class turned into 40 minutes of stretching with just some Pilates thrown in at the end, since the instructor is away for the holiday weekend.

Edited to add: The guy was okay. Hadn't eaten since 4 PM the day before and apparently blood sugar was way low, and also blood pressure.
