In Door Cycling - Spin!
Gyms are closed and that means no Spin classes! Oh no. Indoor cycling, often called spin is a form of exercise focusing on endurance, strength, intervals, high intensity and recovery, and involves using a special stationary exercise bicycle with a weighted flywheel in a classroom setting. The instructor guides and motivates you through a series of "Rides". These classes are perfect for beginners, as well as for intermediate and advanced riders. Everyone goes at their own pace. Ultimately, you will get a great workout while having fun in a non-intimidating environment . . . your home via Zoom. The calorie burn is estimated to be between 300 to 500 cal for 45 minutes. Different levels of intensity is created by using resistance and duration. Everything will be explained as we ride. You’ll cycle for 45 minutes and conclude with 15 minutes if abs and stretch while having fun. Riders will have the opportunity to join Master Spin Instructor, Pat Anikewich. For best results a Spin bike is suggested. However, you could ride along with a recumbent bike. Water, a towel, and your enthusiasm is a must. Master Spin Instructor Patricia Anikewich holds many group exercise certifications and teaches at many Westchester and Connecticut fitness centers. Make up date, if needed is added to the end.
