Great cardio options!
Indoor cycling (aka “spinning,” its trademarked name) is a cardiovascular, butt-kicking workout that takes us on a stationary but sweaty ride of our life. More intense than a stationary bike, indoor cycling keeps things cool with bumpin’ music and a killer class atmosphere. Expect to sit tight for 30 to 75 minute sessions, which can burn up to 900 calories (take that, Bikram yoga!). The intensity varies throughout the class, thanks to changing up body position, pedal speed, and resistance. And get ready to listen up: The instructor will yell out instructions to imitate a real ride of climbs, sprints, and coasts. The best part? Most bikes can track mileage, pulse, and calories burned to record progress throughout the class. In some special classes, the pedaling is even mixed with upper body workouts, resistant bands, or a themed adventure.
