For many individuals with ADHD, movement enhances focus. But the key to an effective fidget toy, whether it's squeezing a stress ball or peeling the label from a water bottle, is that engagement with the item happens largely without awareness, as focus lands elsewhere. With spinners, the focus seems to be landing on spinners, and that makes them distractions, not tools.

As a fair-weather cyclist, I know I love to be on the bike but I just can't manage it when the weather is awful, so I decided to try spinning. Spinning, I've learned, has a culture of its own and, like every culture, it has its own special rules of etiquette.

If you're getting tired of your usual workout, try a spin class instead. The instructors play high-intensity songs with dedicated rest periods to deliver an amazing and energetic work out. You sweat. A lot. At least, if you're doing it right.

My second workout fad test! This week I decided to sign up for a spin class at Quad on King Street West. The lucky girl that I am, the class I wandered into happened to be high intensity with Marc. In addition to spinning like we're on a flat road, we'd also be climbing three hills. Fabulous. I explained to the instructor that I was new to the regime and he promised to let me take it easy. And then gently let me know that I had set up my handle bars backwards. Great start.
