Spin undefined

three riders in spin class at the UC Rec Center


What to expect

  • Party lights and a great workout to music. Every instructor has their own unique style and musical choices, so it pays to try a few out classes and see who you fit with best. Remember this could change over time as you gain more experience and fitness.
  • Lunchtime classes are 45 minutes. All others are 50 minutes. We occasionally offer Spin Enduro which is 75 or 90 minutes.

At your first spin class

  • Arrive 15 minutes early so we have time to help set your bike up for you.
  • Don’t expect to be able to cycle as fast as everyone else – it takes time to build leg pace.
  • Expect to feel exhausted – in a nice way. It takes practice to learn the intensity to ride at.

Controlling intensity

  • You are in charge of your workout – the instructor simply provides the moves and motivation.
  • The instructor won’t touch your resistance dial – only you decide to work harder or ease off.

Benefits of spin

  • Gain leg strength and muscular endurance without gaining bulk
  • Increase your cardiovascular fitness and burn fat
  • Tone and shape your legs and butt
