Spinning – a great way to workout

Sep 24, 2013 No Comments by

It doesn’t matter what gym you visit, you will find at least one spinning class there, as well as several spinning bikes for private sessions. Why is that? Well, it’s actually quite simple to explain. It’s because spinning is a very popular activity, and it’s also very good for your general health. I could spend hours trying to explain why you should try spinning, but I’ve decided to just list five reasons why this is something you should try next time you visit the gym.


  • Burn calories quickly – You’re probably aware of the fact that you need to burn calories in order to lose weight, and you will burn plenty of calories during a spinning class. Do you have 30 minutes to spare? That’s great, because you can actually burn as much as 500 calories in half an hour. Great, isn’t it? Can you give it even more time? Even better of course, as that means even more calories burned.
  • Improve your cardiovascular health – Improved muscular endurance and improved heart rate is something anyone would want, right? This, along with improved lung capacity, is one of the health benefits coming with spinning.
  • Low impact on knees and feet – Have you ever tried to stay fit by running? Then you’re probably aware of the impact running has on your knees and feet. Spinning has a much lower impact on your body, as you can workout hard without putting too much pressure on knees and feet.
  • Easy to find a training partner – Training is always more fun if you workout with a friend, a family member, a colleague or maybe your wife or husband. Spinning is a great activity as it suits almost everyone. You can still do spinning if you suffer from arthritis, you can do it whether you’re male or female, young or old, etc.
  • Do it at home – It can be tricky to find time to visit the gym on a regular basis, but the good thing with spinning is that you can just as well do it at home. All it takes is that you mount a spinning bike at home, and that doesn’t have to be expensive at all. It’s definitely worth every penny!


Eager to try spinning? I definitely recommend it, and I’m sure you will enjoy every minute of it, not to mention the results!

My name is Tezz and I'm a 29-years-old mother of 2. I spend most of my time at soccer practice, hockey practice or floor ball practice with my sons, but I also enjoy exercising myself. I love zumba, aerobics, jogging and of course power walking. My interest in health and training has grown since I became a mom. It all started when I wanted to lose a few extra pounds that I gained during my pregnancies, but it increased to become an honest interest in exercising and today I find it important to have a healthy lifestyle. I've also worked as a skincare consultant for a couple of years and I love beauty related topics just as much as health related topics. I love makeup and skincare and I'm looking forward to share my hobbies with you!
