Some people also believe spinning classes help relieve stress, calm your mind, and boost your confidence.
Consider Spinning Towards Health
From teenagers to seniors and athletes to fitness beginners, anyone can join spinning classes. Also known as studio cycling, this form of exercise can be beneficial for both your mind and body. Companies like Spinning, the creators of the indoor cycling category and the global leader in programming, education and bikes, have also helped millions of people achieve their fitness goals and improve their cardiovascular health according to Bernie Dennis, Chairman of the Board of the American Heart Association.
Depending on the nature of an injury, spinning is often considered safe even for those with arthritis, bad knees, or lower back pain (as with any exercise, check with your doctor first before starting a new exercise routine). The number of calories you’ll burn depends on a number of factors, including your weight and the intensity at which you exercise, but research indicates that on average, participants burn about 400–600 calories in a 40-minute workout. The “distance” traveled depends on cadence; however as an estimate, an average 40-minute class at a cadence of 80–110 rpm is equivalent to approximately 15–20 miles on the road.
The social aspect can also be a plus if you’re looking for a great way to make friends and meet other people who love exercise as much as you do. The Huffington Post also has a great list of 8 Reasons To Learn To Love Spin Class.
