Spinning is a type of aerobic exercise done by cycling indoors on a stationary ‘’spinning’’ bike.
In a class, the instructor will sit on a bike in front, facing a room full of people – each on their own bike. The room is darkened, there are flashing disco lights, lasers, a fog machine and the music is LOUD to help motivate the exercisers!
While Spinning, students are able to set the resistance level on their bike themselves, which helps if a student finds that pedalling at a certain level is becoming too challenging. It also allows students to ease off if they are not naturally inclined to push their athletic ability to its limits.
Using a stationary bike in a class is an excellent way to burn calories in an activity that does not require a great deal of co-ordination.
