YES!!!! It can be really annoying, especially if they feel the need to share some "emotional" story. It feels contrived and even if it isn't, who wants to think about deep, heavy stuff when you're trying to sweat it out?I think the instructors are great, but I really wish they would have classes that have minutes-long periods where you just ride and listen to the music. Some of them feel the need to talk literally the whole time and it makes it hard to get into the ride. Everyone I talk to feels the same way so wondering why there is not a whole section of classes that feature this?
