Spinning is an athletic training program designed to provide all levels of students with a fun, safe and challenging workout. Remember to bring a towel and water to your spinning class, and we recommend you also bring a heart rate monitor and biking shorts or a gel seat cover.

Spinning Room Rules

  • No entry after the class has started.
  • No one is allowed into the spinning room until the instructor arrives.
  • Wipe off bike after each use.

To make your experience more enjoyable, please observe the following guidelines:

  • Inform the instructor if you are new or need special assistance.
  • Familiarize yourself with the bike and its operation. To stop the pedals pull up on the resistance knob and keep your legs clear of moving pedals.
  • Check your bike and all adjustments. Seat height, fore/aft seat position and handlebar height.
  • Make sure all ‘pop-ins’ are completely engaged.
  • Position your shoe with the ball of your foot over the center of the pedal. Tuck in your laces and be sure your foot is securely attached to the pedal.
  • You should always have some resistance on the bike and be comfortable at ‘walking’ pace before increasing your speed.
  • Stay in control. Maintain your form and transition smoothly between movements.


SPINNING CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

Endurance—Train your body to be more efficient at metabolizing fat and maintain a comfortable pace for extended periods.

Intervals—Emphasis will be on speed, tempo, timing and rhythm. Higher RPM on flats and hills mixed with recovery stretches will help you develop the ability to recover quickly after work efforts.

Aerobic Base—You will work your heart and your lungs at a steady pace rather than forcing them to do more than they really can. By doing this, they're going to be stronger overall. 

Strength—Strength rides promote muscular and cardiovascular development that will enable one to feel like a strong and powerful climber.

Instructors Choice—The instructor may choose one of the four formats above so be prepared for surprises and challenges no matter the terrain.

Spin Flex—The spinning classes you love are great for cardio training and lower body muscular fitness, but what about your upper body? SPIN Flex is the answer for spinning enthusiasts who love to ride but also need a total body workout in a short amount of time. Awesome 30-minute ride followed by 15 minutes of strengthening focused on your upper body.
