Getting fit, healthy, and lean is not a simple process, no matter what the personal trainers on Instagram and social media would have you believe. There is no quick fix for being overweight and unfit, but there is a solution. The primary fix involves cleaning up your diet, watching your caloric intakes, and doing more exercise. There are plenty of ways to exercise and get fit, though lately, there has been a dramatic increase in the amount of people taking up spinning classes by using spin bikes. Spin bikes are a type of exercise bike that are designed to be used indoors to mimic the effects of riding outdoors. Basically, you’ll sit on the bike, lean forwards, and cycle as if you were riding outdoors. The bike is of course stationary and doesn’t move but is very comfortable and is great for getting you fit, lean, and healthy. Here’s a look at several reasons to join a spinning class.

  Meet new people –
If you’re looking for a fun and exciting way to meet new people, why not join a spinning class? Spin classes are ideal because they’re full of like-minded individuals with similar goals and objectives to you. Spin classes are very popular, so there will be plenty of people to talk to and meet. During the class itself you and everyone else will be far too tired to speak, but before and after you can socialise and get to know the other members. You could even make yourself new friends and find a new training buddy perhaps.  

Burn fat –
If you want to burn fat and get lean, spin classes are ideal. When you take part in a spinning class, you’ll burn hundreds of calories. The harder you work, the more calories you’ll burn. Now, if you were to ride at a moderate intensity, you’d burn roughly 400 – 500 calories in one hour. Spin classes are very high intensity classes, which means that you’ll burn off even more calories than with a regular bike ride. A high intensity spin class could potentially burn off as many as 800 calories, which will help you to get lean and healthy in no time at all.  

Fun –
Although you might not realise it, when you hop on a Spin bike and take part in a spinning class, you will actually find yourself having fun and enjoying yourself. Yes, spinning classes are very tough and physically demanding, but because your instructor is always looking for new and exciting ways to switch up the classes and keep them fresh and exciting, no two classes will be exactly alike. With your instructor, along with the music, and even different lighting in some cases, spin classes will be a whole lot of fun.  

Tone your muscles –
Not only does spinning help to burn fat, improve fitness, and strengthen your heart, it will also help to tone your muscles as well. Your core will be worked because of the angle that you lean forwards, but it is your legs and lower-body muscles that will really benefit here. With regular spin classes, it won’t be long before you have a set of strong and toned legs.
