When it comes to the benefits you can obtain from “spinning” the list is endless. Not only will you leave your workout drenched in sweat but you’ll also have a lot of fun while you’re at it. Here are five of our top, benefits that are sure to get you back in the saddle.
Spinning involves both strength training and cardio which will not only provide a full body workout but also benefit your heart. Studies reveal that regular cardio is a great way to lower the risk of heart disease and this is one fun way to fit that in!
Studies have shown that an individual can burn up to 500 calories during a 40-minute class. So, there’s no doubt you’re going to burn calories while spinning. If your goal is to lose weight, spinning when combined with a healthy diet is a great way to help you achieve your fitness goals.
There’s a myth that spin class can lead to "bulky" legs. However, this is simply not true. Bulking up requires very heavy strength training that engages particular muscle fibres in a specific way. Proper indoor cycling, just like any other form of cardio uses different muscles designed for long stretches of endurance. A spin class will help define and tone your legs but won’t bulk them up. Your legs will be stronger, and more and you’ll feel the difference in no time.
A spin class combines speed, endurance and power allowing you to integrate many different types of training into your fitness regime. It helps you achieve a full body workout without getting bored and will keep you motivated and coming back.

You’ll be surprised at how good this break can make you feel. You’ll be calmer and ready to take on the rest of the day. Plus, the endorphins you’ll release by the end of the class will have you smiling all the way home!
