Spinning cycling classes are exercise groups in which a professional leads the spinners through exercise routines on specially designed stationary bikes. Fitness gyms offer spinning classes with music and sometimes video.
Bikes used during spinning classes can be adjusted to fit each student's size. The spinner can adjust the bike's resistance to change the intensity of the workout, often at the direction of the leader.
Spinning class instructors are valuable resources. Instructors help students learn how to set their bike correctly and also how to spin effectively and safely.
Students typically see results within two to three weeks. Spin improves lower body fitness, endurance, energy level and strength.
Spin students derive motivated from the group exercise setting and from the music or videos played during class. The leader gives encouragement and pushes the spinners to reach their potential.
Because they are held indoors, spinning cycling classes are a year-round activity and can keep road cyclists motivated and in shape throughout the winter. The bikes can simulate hills and other difficult terrain types that might not be readily available outdoors.
