When you combine the cardiovascular training elements of the Spinning® program and core, mind/body training elements of Pilates, you get a total-body workout from the inside out. Spinning is an essential class for every cyclist and by doing Pilates, you will become more aware of how your body, comprised of individual parts, functions as a whole. Still find it hard to believe that these two opposite exercise modalities complement each other? Read on to learn how you can combine the Spinning program with Pilates from Spinning instructor and Peak Pilates® Teacher Trainer, Sara Talbert.
