1. Burn Calories
The benefits from Spinning meet a long list of health, fitness and lifestyle needs for a broad range of people. Whether you’re a roadie seeking performance gains or a newbie trying to drop a few pounds, Spinning likely has you covered. From saddle to saddle you’ll see the needs of many – regardless of age, gender, lifestyle – met by one experience. That’s why, as fitness options go, few are as dynamic and accommodating as Spinning.
2. Ride Here or There… Practically Anywhere
As the creators of indoor cycling, we strive to use our resources to give you the availability you need to stay active and in shape around the clock. Homebodies and globetrotters alike can now ride with ease with little concern over the availability of equipment or nearby class locations.
3. Burn Calories as You Enjoy Your Ride
The old “two birds, one stone” idiom takes on a whole new meaning with Spinning, as your “me time” transcends normal downtime habits by becoming as productive as it is enjoyable. Consider this: a one-hour long ride at a moderate intensity burns approximately 420 to 622 calories at a moderate pace, according to Harvard Health. When you put it side-by-side with Hatha Yoga’s (240 to 356 calories burned per hour), it puts that number into perspective.
4. Improve Your Cardio for a Healthy Heart
Spinning can be performed as an anaerobic exercise, pulling energy from reserves and building up muscular endurance over an extended timeframe. However, there are also aerobic benefits. Spinning classes include both endurance and cardiovascular training.
Heart health is one of the most obvious benefits of Spinning, as is lung capacity. As we work harder, we will learn to work on controlled breathing, as well. This can help with anxiety and help lower the heart rate when in a situation where physical exertion begins to take the breath away.
