Spin Your Way To Success This 2019
Gym membership soars in January as men and women try to shake off holiday hangovers and the consequences of binge eating i.e. weight gain. The festive season comes with a lot of temptation to overindulge and few of us succeed in resisting the temptation. Come the start of the New Year, the beginning of setting new resolutions, losing weight usually tops the list. Many who have tried shedding off extra weight and maintaining the dream body will tell you how difficult it is. That’s why a long term plan is so much better than a short term goal of simply shedding a few extra pounds.
One of the best ways of losing weight and getting fit is indoor cycling aka spinning. Why? Because it works the entire body not just the legs. Spinning is a high intensity cycling workout that generally takes place on a stationary exercise bicycle with a weighted flywheel in a classroom setting. Spinning classes are usually 45 minutes to 60 minutes long and well-spaced throughout the day to fit busy schedules.
Why is it beneficial? Depending on factors such as weight and intensity of the workout, a good one hour spinning session can burn more than 400 calories. Furthermore, spinning is an opportunity to enjoy your time while you burn substantial calories with others like yourself. It is good for everyone regardless of gender, age or lifestyle. You can go at your own pace and achieve the results you desire.
Aerobics can be fun and fruitful. But maybe you have two left feet so coordination is a challenge for you. What if aerobics just doesn’t cut it for you? Well spinning is your answer. Spinning can be performed as an aerobics exercise as it not only builds your muscles but also your cardio. Over time your cardio becomes stronger, your lung capacity increases and your breathing improves. With spinning, you learn how to control your breathing and this goes a long way into controlling your stress levels by remaining calm in stressful situations.
Spinning involves different levels of intensity from warming up to intense levels such hill climbing endurance drills. Such a setting builds up the fighting spirit and brings out the “can do” attitude that lives within each of us. As you spin, you allow the body to release any tension both physical and mental resulting in a holistic relaxed body, mind and spirit.
