Spinning Review

Editor's Review: 3.1 / 5.0

What You Need to Know

Spinning is a type of exercise that is supposed to help you lose weight and get into shape. It was created by a world class cyclist, John G. Goldberg. In the year 1989 John G. Goldberg and John Baudhyin went together and opened the first spinning center that was ever known in Santa Monica, California.


The things that are needed to so this spinning workout are an exercise bike and a gym may help. More than likely this is probably possible to do at home, but it is believed that it will be more effective in a gym and with an instructor.

Product Features

Spinning is considered to be a type of aerobic exercise. It involves what is called visualization. In this type of class you are encouraged to try and focus on being in the outdoors while riding an actual bike. It is designed to make you actually feel like you are enjoying an outdoor cycling session. They create this type of mood supposedly by playing certain music and giving you commands that may suggest that you are actually outside such as “Now you are going up a steep hill, keep pedaling, don’t give up, you are almost there.” The pace may change throughout the course of the class like standing and pedaling at the same time, changing the tension on the bike, or even going full force. This may be an interesting class for people that like to go cycling, but they don’t have the time or the place to do it.
