How many calories will I burn in a Spinning class, and what is the approximate equivalent distance in road miles travelled?

The number of calories you'll burn depends on a number of factors, including your weight and the intensity at which you exercise. Research indicates that on average, participants burn about 400–500 calories in a 40-minute workout. The "distance" travelled depends on cadence; however as an estimate, an average 40-minute class at a cadence of 80–110 rpm is equivalent to approximately 15–20 miles on the road.

How is taking a Spinning class different than just riding a stationary bike?

Spinning class makes riding a stationary more bike fun by adding variety and visualization into your workout. A motivating group setting, energizing music and inspiring instructors make Spinning class an incredible experience.

What type of gear do I need to participate in a Spinning class?

Comfortable workout attire is all you need to get started. But the right gear can make a great class even better.

Will taking Spinning classes make my legs bulk up?

The "climbs" that are incorporated into a Spinning class simulate the experience of riding up a hill. Climbing is an excellent way to build strength, which means you not only get shapelier legs but also stoke your metabolism since muscle needs more calories to sustain itself than fat does. However, most climbs only last a few minutes, which is not enough time to build big, bulky leg and butt muscles. If you're ever in doubt share your training goals with your instructor and ask them to help you create the ride that's right for you.
