Join our gym and work out in one of the funkiest spinning rooms around.
Spinning is a great concept that was created by Jonathan Goldberg from Los Angeles, an avid road cyclist who was determined to find a way to prepare for his intense Ride Across America with indoor training during the periods of cold or bad weather. Created 15 years ago, Spinning has grown rapidly in popularity as it provides an excellent cardio workout for the overall conditioning of the body.
Spinning classes are done in a fitness studio, with various light and music settings to create an energized atmosphere. Instructors guide participants through workout phases - warm-up, steady uptempo cadences, sprints, climbs, cool-downs, etc. You control resistance on your bike to make the pedaling as easy or difficult as you choose. Constant adjustment is normal. All you will need is workout clothes, a towel (to wipe your face) and a water bottle. Spinning bikes have toe clips so you can wear tennis shoes but many pedals also work with Shimano-style SPD cleats.

What fitness level or condition should I be in to participate in a class?
Spinning is great for anyone aged 16 or older and allows you to work at your own intensity by controlling your own workout with the manual resistance knob.It is a great form of low impact cardiovascular activity, which does not place a high amount of stress on the joints, as higher impact activities would have that effect. (Jogging, step aerobics and the stairmaster)
How long will it take for me to see results?
In approximately 2-3 weeks you will notice an increase in your cardio endurance, energy level, increased strength in your lower body and notice changes in your body shape and/or weight. The amount of body weight or fat lost depends on the number of times that you exercise per week and the dietary choices you make. Generally, permanent weight loss will average 1-2 lbs per week.
How Often Should I Spin?
Have fun and participate in 2 or 3 classes per week. You are able to participate at your own pace and are always in charge of your ride and how hard you work. Spinning is a form of low impact cardiovascular exercise and minimizes the wear and tear on the joints; which enables you to participate frequently. The goal is to participate in different forms of cardiovascular activity to focus on working the larger muscles from different angles. This will also allow the muscles worked to recover from the workout and be prepared for the next ride. You will also maximize results by combining a minimum of 2 days per week to focus on resistance training.
