Just got the new gym time table and on a Monday night they now have 3 spin classes one after each other (well 15 min gap between the 2nd and 3rd ) so the class goes from 17:15 to 19:45. so thatís my goal for the end of the month. OH Boy

Very Happy Very Happy

What do they do at spin class? Other than ride a bike!

They have an early morning one at my gym but the few times I've looked in on it there's about four people of which one is about an 85 year old man and three 50 something women wearing pink leotards and leg warmers and a ton of make-up! Not your typical cycle training sorts.

It all depends on the instructor, you normaly do a session that goes through simulated climbs and sprints, all the resistance is graded through the fixed gears.

the class can be made or broken by the instructor and his music.

I pesonly love the classes and enjoy them, but we only have one bad instructor and i try to avoid his class.

blimey!
the other 'spinners' in the final/3rd session are going to keep their distance from you when they see you starting the class with a pool of sweat (already) under your bike! Shocked

3 in a row ? That sounds pretty demanding. I wanna play !!!

I teach spin at my gym, but we only have one studio, so other classes use it in between. I doubt I can get them to put a back to back to back class on ! Wink

Let me know how you get on ?

I hope it's more than one teacher taking the class !
