What You Need to Know About Spinning Class
This entry was posted on November 24, 2013.
Almost every year, new types of fitness programs are introduced to the general public by experts in the field of health. Some have proven to be really effective while others turn out to be busts. Today, spinning class is the latest trend to hit the market and it’s getting really popular and for good reason. It works great! First of all, what is this fitness program? Basically, spinning is done in a studio. The setup is that a group of people are all in one room and are sitting on a static exercise bike. An instructor is present who is also sitting on a static exercise bike. Now this sounds very simple and there seems nothing special at first glance. All the bikes have height and seat adjustments and that seems to be about it. But there’s one major difference: resistance control. The reason why a spinning class is very effective is because of the resistance control on the bike which changes rapidly. This makes a huge difference in your workout. What happens is that the instructor will first get you to warm up for about five minutes. After this, the instructor will tell the group to raise from their seats (either completely standing up or just lifting up a bit depending on the situation). He would then instruct everyone to increase or decrease the resistance of their bikes, to speed up or slow down, and to raise or sit down on their bikes. That, basically, is a spinning class. The first question here is, why have to go through this? Why not just go out on a bike? The answer is really simple, it’s for convenience. When you rely on cycling outside, there are a lot of factors to consider mainly the weather. If it’s pouring outside, then you can’t get on with your exercise regimen. But, being indoors in a spinning class, this is completely removed and you can exercise all you want. Another reason is motivation. That’s probably the biggest part of being in a class and having an instructor. They are there to give you motivation and to encourage you to do better. With the music turned on, the instructor encouraging you, and seeing 30 other people pedaling their hearts out, it really creates a great atmosphere to do better and work harder. This is the perfect setup for a lot of people out there, especially for those who do better when they are with someone else. But the really enticing thing about spinning is the fact that you will always be challenged. Regardless of what level you are in, it just keeps getting harder and harder. At the same time, every session is different as well. With the consistent changes in speed, tempo, resistance, and position, no two sessions would be the same so it’s not boring at all. The constant challenge is what makes spinning class really unique.
