Spinning on Studio Bike Fitness Workout

Using Studio Bike

Spinning - Indoor Cycling

Also known as studio cycling, spinning is road cycling brought indoors. It simulates riding a bike with the use of a fly wheel that picks up speed when you pedal, so you feel as if you’re actually going down (or up) hills. Spinning classes are popular around the country and in particular with people who want to lose weight and burn calories at a high rate.

How Many Calories Does Spinning Burn?

60 minutes on a studio bike burns 600-800 calories. [This is based on a 150-pound woman. If you weigh more, you’ll burn extra calories; if you weigh less, you’ll burn fewer calories.]

How Does Spinning Help Weight Loss?

Spinning pumps blood and oxygen around the body quickly, which increases the pace at which we burn body fat. It burns as many calories as a rowing machine worked at race pace. It tones the entire lower body, especially the butt and front of the thighs. If you do a lot of standing (known as jumps), you’ll strengthen your abdominal muscles. For details of other cycles, see Indoor Exercise Bikes

How Often Should I Use a Studio Bike?

Beginner
Take beginner Spin classes twice a week for about 4 to 6 weeks.

Medium
Increase the classes to 3 per week and increase your pedaling speed.

Advanced
After 2 to 3 months include jumping and other intense moves like sprinting (high speed pedaling)

How To Start Spinning?

Using a studio bike (spinning) is a tough aerobic and lower body workout. Take a beginners class to start with, as it's not as intense as medium or advanced classes. You need to build speed and stamina gradually.
