The Directorate of Family and Morale, Welfare & Recreation hosted a 90’s spin party for Fort Hood spin enthusiasts at Abrams Physical Fitness Center Aug. 28.

Instructor Patricia Brown’s favorite part of leading spin classes is the people that come and participate. She keeps the energy high especially in the themed events.

“I really enjoyed watching Pat rock out. She was so into the music,” Toni Kornegay, recreation specialist for DFMWR, said. “(She) Definitely gave the event a great vibe with her moves and her playlist.”

“I want everyone to experience a new way of working out without the risk of injuring their knees,” Brown said of why she enjoys instructing spin classes.

Spouses Catherine Roecklein and Katlyn Bridgewaters attended the 90s spin party and it was their first spinning event.

“I like exercising and it seems like high energy and fun,” Bridgewaters said about why she wanted to attend.

They both agreed that it was a great opportunity to get out of the house and meet new people.

“It can feel pretty isolating sometimes,” Roecklein said about being a military spouse.

Bridgewaters agreed, adding that it’s important to have events like the 90s spin party for Soldiers and their spouses because it, “Gets the wives out, meet new wives, meet new people. I think it’s good.”

The class lasted a daunting two hours, but Brown kept it upbeat with her encouraging attitude and awesome 90s playlist.

“I really enjoyed watching Pat rock out. She was so into the music,” Toni Kornegay, recreation specialist for DFMWR, said. “(She) Definitely gave the event a great vibe with her moves and her playlist.”

She enjoys the themed events because of the music, saying that the songs bring back good memories.

“With all the streaming services available, sometimes you hear a song that you completely forgot about, and it’ll take you back to that time, place or person,” she said. “Sometimes that’s a good thing.”

Kornegay loves all types of music from the 90s while Roecklein and Bridgewaters are fans of artists like Britney Spears and Shakira. Brown knew exactly who to name as her favorite group or artist from the 90s.

“Mary J. Blige and Tupac,” she said. “They got me through some really tough times. Hearing their music made me get back to what matters.”

She was also quick to point out her favorite 90s song.

“Hi-Five, ‘I Like the Way (Kissing Game),’” she said. “I was playing this while waiting and I completely lose myself. I love this song!”
