The Spinning Rides

Spinning is one of the most popular indoor fitness activities throughout the world!

A good Spinning programme is full of variety with different types of rides and profiles that challenge your body and mind in a different way every time

The rides:

  • ENDURANCE - flatter rides aimed at keeping your heart rate between 65 - 75% of your maximum. These rides will build your base fitness levels and encourage your heart and lungs to work more efficiently. Utilising fats as the major fuel source, these rides will definitely help if you are trying to lose fat as well as improving your fitness/sporting performance.
  • STRENGTH - these rides push the heart rate to 75 - 85% whilst climbing hills in and out of the saddle. Trying to stay relaxed whilst pushing a 'big gear', will get your heart and legs pumping. These rides will take you just to the point where your lungs are crying out for oxygen, but the driving rhythms won't let you stop!
  • INTERVALS - these rides will test your fitness and recovery rates. You may be able to push hard in the sprints and up the hills but how quickly can you get your heart rate and breathing rate back under control?
  • RACE DAY - time trial rides that we do every few months to test how your training is coming along. You really need a heart rate monitor for this one to see exactly how many beats per minute your heart goes to at full effort.

Ride with your legs, your heart and your head!
