Spinning: 6 Reasons to Add a Spin Class to Your Workout Routine!

If you've never tried a spin class, this tip is for you! After joining my local gym four years ago I immediately fell in love with spinning. I fell so hard that I got my spinning certification and have been teaching classes for over two years. Check out why I think spinning is beneficial and then head to your local gym or cycle studio and ask about a free trial membership.

  • Spinning is a low-impact workout, therefore it won't hurt or damage your knees.
  • You can burn between 500-600 calories in a 60-minute class.
  • You control the resistance on the bike, which helps you to slowly build endurance and strength while going at your own pace.
  • Endurance work improves your heart health.
  • Your legs will become leaner and your quads, glutes, hamstrings and calf muscles will get stronger.
  • With a motivating instructor, a spin class will leave you feeling strong, refreshed and empowered.

I'll be completely honest with you, though. Spinning is tough. You will sweat and sweat some more and just when you think you can't go any further, the last song will play and you will dig deep to find your inner beast and climb up that one last hill. Will it be easy? No. Will it be worth it? Absolutely.

You're welcome. I've always wanted to try spinning but have been putting it off. You have put a bug in my ear. :)

I usually go for spin class during lunch break as it is the most effective calorie burner when you're pressed for time. And yes, the music and the instructor can really get you feeling empowered and energized!
