What Happens in a Spinning Class?
Imagine a whole bunch of exercise bikes lined up inside a health club studio. Riders are on each one spinning the pedals at a rapid pace.
The lights are turned down, pumped up music fills the air and an instructor sits atop a lead bike, calling out commands. "Climb out of the saddle,"
"Big hill coming!"
The riders rise as one, pedals spinning faster as they grimace with exertion, sweat dripping off their bodies.
What you're witnessing is a spinning class, a workout option available at fitness clubs everywhere. Spinning is a relatively recent phenomenon, where participants take part in a group workout on exercise bikes that typically lasts anywhere from 30-75 minutes.
The classes are lead by instructors who normally guide participants through a series of phases, from warm-up to more challenging phases, to a period of peak effort followed by a cool down.
In spinning classes, the intensity of the workout is influenced by a couple of things: cadence, or pedal rate & resistance of the bike's flywheel, which can be continually adjusted throughout the class to make pedaling easier or more difficult ·
Also by the rider's body position, as they either pedal from a seated position or rise from the saddle.
Ultimately participants determine their own levels of exertion, something that works better for some folks than others. But a good instructor can certainly encourage and motivate you to push yourself, and you'll most likely find spinning to be a vigorous workout.
