Mike's Spinning Page! 

This is a page of links, information, and other things that may be useful to Spinning®  instructors and enthusiasts.



First and foremost,  http://www.spinning.com  is the official home of the Johnny G.  Spinning® program.   On this page, you will find information on the Spinning® program, clubs near you that have Spinning®, Certification, Recertification, sample profiles, and more.



If you use a computer to create your profiles with a spreadsheet or a word processor, then you might want to try this truetype font that I created.  

To save the font on your computer, right click on the link and choose "save link target as" (if you use Netscape) or "save target as" (if you use Internet Explorer).

If you use Windows 9x or Windows 2000, then you can install the font by clicking:  Start, Settings, Control Panel, Fonts.  When the font window comes up, click: File, Install New Font.  Browse to the location where you saved the font, and double-click on "Spinning Symbols" in the "List of Fonts" box.   The font is now ready to use in your favorite spreadsheet or word processor.

Instructions for installing fonts in Windows XP are at:  http://www.microsoft.com/typography/ttfinst/ttfinstxp.htm

If you use MacIntosh, then consult your documentation for instructions on installing fonts.
(Update: I've been getting reports that the fonts work in some Mac applications, but not in others. I've never worked on a Mac, so I've no way to confirm this. Your Mileage May Vary.)

The font is most useable at 14pt or larger, and scales well to any larger font size.   After installing this font, you can choose "Spinning Symbols" from the list of fonts in your word processor or spreadsheet, and then the numbers 1-9 will show up as the symbols used in Spinning® profiles.   The number "0" will show up as an empty box (in case you have need for one).

0 (zero) An empty box. Just in case you need one.

If you use this font, then please drop me a note and let me know (you can use the link at the bottom of the page to send email to me) .  For one thing, I'm interested to know if anyone (other than me) finds it useful, and it will also allow me to contact you if I improve it.

If you find it SO useful that you feel guilty using it for free, then consider paying it forward by locating a reputable charity (Paws for a Cause, Leader Dogs for the Blind, your local soup kitchen, World Wildlife Fund, etc.) and making a donation.  The cool thing about this is that you can write it off from your taxes!
