You may have heard of people doing Spinning Classes or Spin Classes and wondered what exactly it means. Wellnex Publishing team explains to you all about Spinning and why you should go and try!
What do you do in a spinning class? In spin class, you pedal along on a stationary bike as the instructor guides you through a visualization of an outdoor workout. The pace and speed will vary throughout the workout, sometimes requiring break-neck speed, and other times pedalling happens from a slow, standing position.
What's the difference between cycling and spin class? Cycling: Cycling uses all the major lower-body muscles - the glutes, hamstrings, quads, shins and calves.
Spinning: The fixed wheel of a spinning bike means you can't "freewheel" - so your muscles work the whole time. This makes it a pretty high-intensity activity, burning a lot of calories.
Is spinning a good way to lose weight?
Whether you call it indoor cycling or spinning, pedaling a stationary bike for a solid 30 to 60 minutes is a great workout. It also qualifies as low impact exercise. For a lot of people, low impact is just what they need to help them lose weight. Indoor cycling can certainly do that.
A 45-minute indoor cycling workout can burn 350- 600+ calories. Indoor cycling is a low-impact way to get a high-intensity cardio workout. In addition to a heart-pumping cardio workout, cycling works you lower body, especially your glutes and quads.

Is Spinning better than running?
While routine running can help you lose weight and prevent obesity, research shows that you may be able to burn more calories spinning versus running. In fact, an especially high-impact Spinning class can expend up to 1,000 calories over the course of 60 minutes. In a Spinning class, core muscles can also be developed.
Spinning is addictive and you’ll usually spot a couple of regular attendees who have clearly been punching the pedals indoors at least once a week for months.
