Indoor Cycling | Indoor Spin Cycling | Spinning Class MN
Spinning classes can be a great way to get in a vigorous workout, burn calories, and keeping your muscles in shape, especially during the off-season. It doesn’t take any special skills or ability to ride a Spinner bike. It is a non-impact workout for people of all ages and fitness levels.
Major advantages of spinning bikes include a specific flywheel which helps improve general and cardiovascular fitness as well as simulated terrains and the opportunity to keep track of progress on a regular basis. It can be a bit of a challenge to get through the first spinning classes, even for those who have ridden regularly. The challenge is proof enough that spinning bikes are not the same as riding outside and offer specific advantages, helping to balance workouts and achieve maximum results. Another advantage of spinning bikes is the multitude of options for adjusting handlebars and seat heights, under the supervision of an experienced spinning coach. A spinning workout is also an excellent way to relieve stress.
These stationary bikes deliver all the benefits of biking outdoors; you get a great cardiovascular workout that boosts your heart rate and metabolism. While peddling away on one of these bikes, your body efficiently burns calories in a way that’s easy on your joints. Indoor cycling focuses on endurance, strength, intervals, high intensity, and recovery.
In a spinning class, 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
- 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 personal trainer can certainly encourage and motivate you to push yourself, and you’ll most likely find spinning to be a vigorous workout. It’s a decent way to stay in shape when you can’t get outside on the bike.
Due largely to better equipment and new technology, class attendance and interest in group cycling has increased. Group indoor cycling classes have become very popular and new variations on Spinning workouts are only getting hotter.
Nothing beats riding outside but let’s face it very few of us are willing to brave the Minnesota winters! For those who’ve suffered the indignities of trying to fight freezing cold weather, ice and rain in their faces and other difficulties of riding outside, spinning bikes can be quite a pleasurable contrast. So studded tires aside, spinning is a great option for indoor cycling in Minnesota.
