We all lead busy lives and it’s easy to arrive at class feeling tired, but after class you can feel reborn and full of energy. This is driven primarily by the fact that there is never a dull moment in a spin class as each one is different from the last; from the music, to the instructors and the lighting, a good spin class keeps you engaged. Energy is contagious and the energy is high in spinning.
Research has shown that athletes work harder when listening to music that suits the tempo of the exercise they are executing. Each Instructor carefully constructs a playlist to help you keep pace in class and drive you to stay on beat. Music also plays a big part in bringing out your emotions in class; emotions of defiance, reflection and determination.
We don't promote that we can train you to race the Tour de France but we do offer classes for all levels - beginner to advanced. Focusing on metabolic intervals, light resistance to heavy resistance, your legs will feel challenged and you will feel the burn but not overly fatigued. Interval training gets the heart rate up so you can burn calories in less time.
Those weights might seem light at first but after a few minutes the muscles start to burn, the weights start to feel heavier and then the challenge begins to push all the way to the end.
There is no getting around it, if it’s your first time or you haven’t been riding in a while chances are your bum will be a little sore the next day. Gel seats are provided complimentary in the studio or why not invest in the custom made XYZ padded underwear, which are designed to be discretely worn under your regular gym wear.
There is a misconception that spinning can bulk up your legs; you only have to look at our instructors, who teach up to 12 classes each week, to see that this isn’t true! The interval training that we practice in spinning allows you to tone muscles that you may have not even known you had and sculpt your body into youthful shape.
As we mentioned, energy is contagious and when you are surrounded by 44 riders who are ready to show up and get the work done, you can’t help but ride the wave and push yourself harder. It’s about having fun so you don’t even realize how hard you are working; before you know it, it's the second to last song and then you’re done – you and your fellow riders have completed a great 50 minute workout together!
That's what it’s all about, feeling better than when you walked in. Knowing you showed up, achieved your goal and worked to the best of your ability.
