I LOVE teaching Spinning! If you have never “Spun” before I highly encourage you to attend a class. The cardio benefits are amazing and it is easy on your joints. Also the music is loud and inspiring and keeps you motivated right through into the cool down.
Why should you Spin?
During a 30 minute spin class you can burn 500 calories. In a short amount of time you can burn a lot of calories, thus affecting your health. Most other exercises would take at least double the time to burn so many calories. If you are looking to lose weight, there is no better option. Spinning will melt the pounds off. Many spin enthusiast also claim spinning it is the hardest and best workout they have ever found. There is no other workout that leaves me feeling like I just accomplished a huge feat and went beyond what I thought my body was capable of. And although it is “hard” in its intensity, it isn’t hard for beginners to start.
Low Impact Exercise
Its also no impact by nature so your feet and knees won’t hurt. This makes spinning a great workout for people of all ages, even older adults with joint problems. Spinning even helps increase lung capacity and cardiovascular health.
The intense workout gets your heart pumping faster, which is beneficial on many levels. I have personally noticed that after spinning for a while my asthma became easier to manage because my lung capacity had increased.
I teach Spinning at Celebration Health (www.celebrationfitness.com) in Celebration, Florida every Wednesday at 5:30 pm. I am also subbing tomorrow morning (Sunday, August 3rd) at 10:15 am. I have taughts hundreds of Spinning classes the past few years and would love to see you in class!
