How do we feel about summer being over? Being back in the ol’ routines? With the arrival of fall, why not spruce up your energy with some Absolute Spin classes! Let’s have a little look at just why Spinning is so good for you.
Spinning has long been a favorite type of workout for celebrities such as Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Scherzinger and David Beckham. Wait a minute, you think. These people are celebrities, whose whole life is more or less dedicated to working out. What about us mere mortals? I asked one of our new Spin instructors, James, what you can expect from a spin class.
“Spinning really is a fantastic workout for everyone, regardless of your fitness level. Since people can adjust the level on their own bike, it’s an excellent way to build up strength according to your own need, while still in a dynamic group environment. Remember- this is YOUR workout! I’m here to guide you, and makes sure that you get the most out of your workout in a safe, fun and sweaty way!”
James definitely knows what he’s talking about – with a first diploma in Sports Exercise Science and an F.A Coaching License, he’s been in the fitness industry for over 10 years. In his class, he’ll make you forget about your daily stress and worries and instead focus on getting the very best workout You can get on a bike in 45 minutes, and afterwards he will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have about your own workout routine or how to get the most out of his high-in-demand classes.
So, get ready to sweat! Because sweat, you will: when you walk out of that class, you’ll be dripping but smiling. Really, smiling? Yes! Here’s the thing: exercise releases endorphins, also known as the Happy hormone. When you really push yourself with exercise (which you will, in our Spin classes) the brain releases this hormone that can make you feel almost euphoric after a class. I asked our other new Spin instructor, Nadia, about some of the benefits of spinning.
“Spinning is great because it is a high intensity cardiovascular exercise which allows you to burn up to 400-600 calories per session. When you exercise on your own, it’s so hard to push yourself that extra bit which is necessary to see real change in your body – this really is a great way to tone up your legs and glutes as well as getting that amazing interval training with climbs, sprints and out-of-the-saddle work.”
Nadia has been teaching Spin since 2007 and she loves it! She is a welcomed addition to the Absolute team, with her fun and charming personality and music that will be sure to get your heart rate up. Because that’s another thing about Spinning – it’s all done with awesome music that will help motivate you during the class.
So, why not hop on one of our 11 stationary bikes and add some extra cardio to your workout routine? Ladies and gentlemen… ready, set, SPIN!
