Top ten benefits of Spinning Classes
Some exercises are dreadful, others are addictive. Spin classes offer a great cardiovascular workout and can be a key change in your workout program.
Spinning is a cardiovascular cycling workout on a stationary bike on which the tension can be increased, decreased, mileage and lapsed time is kept by a small computer, and calories burned and heart rate can be tracked by using an inexpensive additional heart monitor. Unlike stationary bikes of old, spinning developed as a class in which certified spinners taught routines ranging from strength and endurance training to calorie burners.
1. Burn Calories
A good 45 minute workout on a Spinning Cycle can burn as much as 800 calories.
2. Cardiovascular Health
Spinning is primarily an anaerobic exercise, pulling energy from your reserves and building up your muscular endurance over an extended period of time. Planned Spinning programs include both endurance and cardiovascular training during the workout. At several points you may be required to break your steady pace and speed up to increase your heart rate.
3. Progress at Your Own Pace
The amount of resistance you apply, as you gain strength and endurance is up to you. Each spinning bike has a resistance control knob within easy reach of the handle bars. It works something like switching gears. While instructors recommend an RPM, as you work toward increasing your RPM and maintaining a steady pace you can't fall behind the rest of the class. You don't feel out of place for not knowing an aerobic or step routine. No one really knows what level at which you are working, so you are free to progress at your own pace.
4. Time Flies
Have you ever walked or ran on a treadmill for an hour only to discover you burned around 400 calories? On the spinning bike, the challenge is constantly changing.
5. Low Impact
Spinning keeps the pressure off your joints. It is also a good workout for those who cannot use the treadmill or elliptical because of arthritis.
6. Shapely Legs
It will not take long for your efforts on a spinning bike to show up as weight loss, but there is another great benefit to Spinning. It does not take long before your thighs, hamstrings, and calves begin to take shape.
7. Lower Your Body's Workout Breaking Point
As you learn to work harder on the spinning bike you will begin to find that the breaking point, at which you begin to feel the workout, will become lower the harder you work. You are simply training your body to work more efficiently.
8. Get an Ab workout while You Spin
Spinning instructors never give up when it comes to talking about technique and posture. Correct posture is important to working the right muscle groups. In addition to the major leg muscles worked during a Spinning routine, the abdominal muscles get a workout, as well. You may not see immediate results of your abdominal work, but over time you will feel your entire body begin to tone up, including your abs.
9. Ride Together
Regardless of your fitness level riding Spin bikes keep everyone together. This goes beyond sitting in the same spinning class, but each individual works equally as hard at their own level. It is amazing how you can feed off of the energy of other riders when you begin to fatigue and start thinking you might want to quit.
10. Mental Strength
Spinning also builds mental strength. When you spin, there are good days and bad. Push through difficult times. Push up hill climbs and push through endurance training. Self discipline of the mind gained in spinning can be applied to all areas of life.
