Low impact

Spin is a GREAT alternative for people with knee, foot or hip injuries as there is very little impact on your joints unlike other forms of cardiovascular exercise.

 

Set your own pace

The spin instructor acts as a guide however YOU set the speed and the resistance on your bike so you can go as hard or as easy as you like. The main thing is that you’re MOVING!

 

Build lean muscle & strengthen your core

Spin is a great full body strength workout – calves, quads, hamstrings and glutes are all working during Spin – especially when standing & climbing.

Your core also gets a great workout, especially during standing sections – it’s what’s keeping you upright! So while you’re concentrating on getting up that imaginary hill, your core muscles are working overtime – bonus!

 

Great for heart health

Research has shown that replacing one session of moderate intensity exercise with two 30-minute sessions of Spin can improve everything from your cardiovascular health to your body composition.

Regular cardiovascular (or aerobic) exercise reduces the risks associated with heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes and some cancers. It’s also great for reducing stress, anxiety & depression and instilling an overall sense of wellbeing.

 

Fun and inspiring

You will never forget your first Spin class – it’s quite an achievement to get to the end and realise hey – I can do this! At Take Shape we have 30 and 45 minute Spin classes so if you’re feeling a little daunted, start off with just a thirty minute class and go from there. Our spin instructors are fun, supportive and want you to succeed  – so why not give it a go?
