The Spinning® Program Classes
Introduction to Spinning
Learn the basics of the Spinning program in this 30 minute introductory ride. The focus will be on familiarizing you with the core movements associated with the Spinning program, while working at below 80% of your maximum heart rate.
Turn and Burn
This class is meant to get you in and out fast! Though you are on the bike only 30 minutes, you will burn lots of calories on this high energy ride.
The Endurance Energy Zone ride trains the body to be more efficient at metabolizing fat and to maintain a comfortable pace for extended periods. This involves an even application of energy for sustained periods raising your heart rate to 65% -75% of your maximum heart rate. The majority of the ride is seated.
The Interval Energy Zone ride emphasizes speed, tempo, timing, and rhythm. Movements may include high RPM (never exceeding 110) pedaling on the flats, acceleration drills, and recovery stretches. Aerobic intervals range from 65% to 80%, and Anaerobic intervals range from 65% to 92% of your maximum heart rate.
The Strength Energy Zone ride involves steady, consistent pedaling with heavy resistance. Strength rides promote muscular and cardiovascular development that will enable you to feel like a strong and powerful climber. The heart rate range straddles the region where the body switches from aerobic to anaerobic metabolism (75% to 85% of maximum heart rate).
