SPINNING® (during Pemberton Refurbishment)
Snooks in Raunds and the Pemberton Centre offer SPINNING® classes throughout the week.
If you want to burn lots of calories whilst listening to great motivating music our cycle SPINNING® classes are ideal.
SPINNING® is a relatively recent phenomenon, where participants take part in a group workout on static exercise bikes. Sessions typically last anywhere from 30-75 minutes. The classes are led 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.
In SPINNING® classes, the intensity of the workout is influenced by:
Cadence, or pedal rate
Resistance of the bike’s flywheel, which can be continually adjusted throughout the class to make pedalling easier or more difficult
The rider’s body position as they either pedal from a seated position or rise from the saddle
Ultimately participants determine their own levels of exertion .Our instructors will encourage and motivate you to push yourself, and you'll most likely find SPINNING® to be a vigorous workout. It's a great way to help stay in shape and there’s no worry of having to push a bike 3 miles home in the pouring rain if you acquire a puncture whilst in the back of beyond!
SPINNING® exercise is a great way to keep your body in shape and has a number of incredible benefits for your body:
SPINNING® exercise helps to burn fat. Through SPINNING® exercise, you can increase your heart rate up to 80 percent which is one of the best increases you can reach when trying to burn fat .Burning fat is done largely by elevating your heart rate, with most benefits coming when you reach 65 to 75 percent. As such, one SPINNING® exercise can contribute tremendously to your health, helping you burn up to twelve hundred calories!
While it might seem obvious, another great benefit from SPINNING® exercise is your improved leg strength. Using a bicycle puts a lot of stress on your glutes, quadriceps, and hamstrings, and since SPINNING® exercise is simply an intense form of biking using a stationary bike, you will be able to target each of these muscle groups and to see a lot of growth in each region.
SPINNING® exercise can also help improve your posture. When using the stationary bike for such intense workouts, you will be putting a lot of focus on your stabiliser muscles. This increased muscle on your hips and shoulders will help improve your posture and body alignment.
SPINNING® is free to Aspirations Members but you do need to book in order to secure a bike.
