Unique Benefits of Spinning

You know that exercise is good for you, and spinning is no different. The great workout you get during a spinning class can help you lose weight, become stronger, and improve your overall health. Spinning offers numerous health benefits; here are ten good reasons to give it a try.

1. Spinning burns calories

Spinning can be difficult for beginners; it's hard on your legs and is a rather strenuous workout. However, if you stick with it, you'll notice major changes in your body, and soon you'll be hooked. These changes in your body are partly due to the number of calories you burn spinning – the average class will burn approximately 500. Even at challenging levels, most other cardio equipment can't burn that many calories that quickly.

2. Spinning improves cardiovascular health

You can perform spinning as an anaerobic exercise, pulling from your energy reserves and building up endurance over time. However, it also offers aerobic benefits. A spinning workout has elements of both cardiovascular and endurance training. Heart health and lung capacity are two important benefits you'll gain from spinning. Also, working on controlled breathing can help with anxiety and keeping the heart rate down while you’re exerting yourself.

3. Progress at your own pace

If you need to pedal a little slower, you can, and without falling behind or feeling out of place. No one knows or cares what level anyone else is working at, so you are free to work at your own pace and progress at a pace that’s right for you.

4. Time flies in a spinning class

While spinning, the challenge changes constantly. You'll find yourself losing track of time as you work through each level. Spinning instructors also create positive mental distraction using language and visualization techniques, and time passes extremely quickly.

5. Spinning is effective and low impact

Many people avoid certain pieces of equipment such as the treadmill or elliptical trainer because of the impact on their knees or feet. Spinning doesn’t cause pressure on your knees or feet, so you can work hard on a spinner bike without worrying about hurting your joints.

6. Spinning gives you shapely, toned legs

You can lose weight spinning, and pretty quickly. However, that's not the only improvement to your appearance you'll notice. Spinning also shapes your thigh, hamstrings, and calves. It won't take long for you to see visible changes in the shape of your legs.

7. Spinning lowers your workout breaking point

As you become a more advanced spinner, you’ll notice that the breaking point, the point at which you really begin to feel the workout, will become lower. This is a good thing because when you reach this breaking point and push through it, you get the endorphin kick so many athletes enjoy.

8. Spinning is a great ab workout

A good spinning instructor will remind you throughout your workout about your posture and technique. It's important to maintain the correct posture and technique so that you are working the right muscle groups. When you are conscientious about your posture, it's not just your legs that get a workout; your abs will too.

9. Spinning is fun

Regardless of fitness level, everyone in a spinning class can work together. Each person in the class is working equally hard at their individual level. You'll feed off of your classmates' energy and be able to encourage them as well. Working together and motivating each other, everyone in the class can reach their goals. 

10. Spinning builds mental strength

Spinning does two things for your mind. First, it helps you relax. The warm up and cool down are calming and help you release pent-up emotions and stress. Second, it builds mental strength. You’ll always have good days and bad days; that’s okay. The important thing is to stick with it. When you push through challenges, tough out the uphill climbs, and ride through endurance training, you gain self-discipline that you can apply to all the other areas of your life. It will also make you more confident in your ability to overcome difficult challenges and give you a positive, “can-do” attitude.

Spinning is an excellent workout that provides you with many health benefits including physical and mental changes. When combined with yoga, these advantages only increase. It’s safe for people of all ages and in a wide range of physical conditions because you can work at your own pace.
