4 Reasons You Should Try Spin Class

By Virginia Laird

One workout class that has been growing in popularity over the past few years is cycling, in particular a spin class. This class is great for those who love a bike ride, those looking to burn extra calories, as well as those who are wanting to try something a little different. Although many perceive the class to be one that only works the legs, the entire body can get a great workout. A few other reasons to try spin class include:

  • It is difficult to overdo it on the bike
  • It can be done year round
  • It helps to tone the legs
  • It can be self-paced

It is Difficult to Overdo It on the Bike

Spin class is not about going the distance on a bike, it is about intervals. Those in the class are constantly changing the resistance on the bike as well as the speeds. This setup offers participants time to rest between various sets, making it difficult to overdo it. 

It Can be Done Year-Round

For those who love to ride for distance, a great benefit for spin class is that it can be done year-round. While biking outdoors in the snow in Texas may not be an issue, the extreme heat can be problematic. A spin class offers the pleasure of a bike ride while in the comfort of a controlled workout room.

It Helps to Tone the Legs

For those looking to have killer legs, spin class is a great place to start. It helps to tone and define the muscles of the legs. Although the entire body gets a workout, the legs are most worked.

It Can be Self-Paced

This class can be a self-paced class. Although everyone is on a bike and a fitness instructor is leading the class, participants are encouraged to do only what is possible for their own body. No one likes to work out and feel like they cannot keep up, but spin class does not allow this to happen. While the instructor may call for a certain resistance, it is easy to adjust a bike slightly different without calling attention to yourself.

To start working on your leaner and toned legs, find a spin class near you. Although your legs will be screaming at you after the workout, you will be glad you started down this path. May you enjoy your spin class!
