Kat Country Challenge- Get Mary Lyn To Try A Spin Class With Kitty !
So I LOVE this new Spin Class I started taking at Gold’s Gym, and I love to share things I love with everyone. But, I can NOT convince Mary Lyn to try it too soooo I need a little help. If we can get at least 30 people to comment/like this blog then she’ll strap on her shoes and SPIN ! Just in case your wondering what the hell a Spin Class is here’s a great definition from about.com….
Imagine a whole bunch of exercise bikes lined up inside a health club studio. Riders are on each one, spinning the pedals at a rapid pace. The lights are turned down, pumped up music fills the air and an instructor with a headset sits atop a lead bike, calling out commands.
“Climb out of the saddle,” she barks at the class. “Big hill coming!”
The riders rise as one, pedals spinning faster as they grimace with exertion, sweat dripping off their bodies.
What you’re witnessing is a spinning class, a workout option available at fitness clubs everywhere. Spinning is a relatively recent phenomenon, where participants take part in a group workout on exercise bikes that typically lasts anywhere from 30-75 minutes. The classes are lead by instructors who normally guide participants through a series of phases, from warm-up to more challenging phases, to a period of peak effort followed by a cool down.
It’s a fun, fast way to burn up to 1,000 calories in under an hour ! Make sure to ‘like’ or comment on this to get Mary Lyn on the bike with me , and consider this your invitation to join us at the gym every Tuesday and Thursday morning to try it for yourself !
