Top Tips For Beginner Spinners!

Top Tips For Beginner Spinners!

Sometimes the idea of trying a spin class can seem a little scary and overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be. Spin is a great low impact workout that is great for cardiovascular fitness, helps lower stress levels and increases muscular endurance. As well as burning plenty of calories, it is great fun!

Here are our top 5 tips that you should consider before doing your first spin class:

1) Attend 5-10 minutes early, so your instructor can help you set up your bike to suit you, show you the functions of the bike, run through health and safety issues before the class and summarise the plan for the session.

2) Bring a towel; it’s likely to get hot and sweaty!

3) Dress comfortably and wear suitable shoes. Try to avoid plimsole style shoes, to ensure that your feet fit well into the foot cages. You want to wear light, breathable clothing so you can stay as comfortable as you can. If you wish to bring a seat cover, this will help keep you comfortable throughout the class.

4) Go at your own pace. There’s no shame in dropping down the workload a little to recover to a manageable intensity.

5) Bring water, and drink plenty! It is important to stay hydrated to help regulate your body temperature and to help you perform at your highest level. It also helps avoid symptoms such as muscle cramps and dizziness.

Members sometimes say ' I need to get fitter before joining in a spin class', but that just isn't the case. Taking part in spin classes will help improve your fitness and your confidence. You will see that you can do more than you imagined.

Go on, give it a go!
