What is Spinning?

Spinning is indoor cycling with music and a class atmosphere. The instructor leads you through changes in body position, pedal speed and resistance, varying the intensity throughout the class. 

Very often candlelight is used along with epic spaces and energizing music that helps you move through the process, providing a workout unlike anything you’ve done before.

Spinning helps reduce stress, increase concentration and keep you focused. 

What to Look For in a Class

When looking for a spinning class to join, be sure to read client reviews. What are other people saying about the class and the instructor? Make sure the instructor is experienced and has positive reviews behind them. 

Look for a class that utilizes candlelight and music as this adds a relaxing and energizing element to the class.
