How to Start an Indoor Cycling Program

How are your New Years resolutions coming along? If you’ve vowed to exercise more, lose weight and be more fit this year, then why not ensure you do just that by starting a new exercise program. Indoor cycling is not only an excellent way to burn a lot of calories in a short amount of time; it’s also fun, challenging and easy to get started.

The best way to get started with your new indoor cycling program is to find an indoor cycling class near you. You can start by going to the Spinning Website and entering your zip code. We’ll provide you with a list of local, certified Spinning® facilities that employ knowledgeable and trained Spinning® instructors. Our Search feature allows you to locate facilities anywhere from 10 to 100 miles from where you live or work. The best part is that these facilities will allow you to take your first cycling class for free. What a better way to try out your new fitness routine than with a free trial?

When you show up for your first indoor cycling class, your instructor will take the time to help you set up your bike so that you have a proper fit. They will also take the time to explain all of the different parts of the bike to help make sure you have a more enjoyable workout. If you’ve never taken an indoor cycling class before, you are encouraged to go at your own pace. Don’t worry about the people around you. You have complete control over your resistance levels on the bike and how fast or slow you choose to go. As you get more familiar with the indoor cycling workouts and routines, you will see your fitness and endurance improve.

Starting an indoor cycling program has numerous benefits for your health. In a typical cycling class, lasting 45 minutes to an hour, individuals can burn upwards of 600 calories or more, making it one of the most intense, yet low-impact exercises around. You’d have to use the elliptical machine for about 2 hours before getting the same cardio benefits as taking an hour-long Spinning® class. In addition, cycling is a low impact exercises, which is easier on your joints and tendons. That means you are much less likely to injure yourself during a class. Throughout your class, your certified Spinning® instructor will lead you through a proper warm up before getting into the cardio portion of the workout. Afterwards, enjoy a brief cool down period and stretch to ensure a safe and injury-free experience.

Another great benefit of starting an indoor cycling program is that you can do it year round. Staying in shape during the winter months can be difficult, especially if you live where the mercury dips below freezing and it rains and snows. With indoor cycling, you will be in shape all year long, and ready to do your outdoor rides as soon as spring and summer come along. Find an indoor cycling program near you today and get those pedals moving!
