now theres nothing i like better than getting out at least 3 times a week(dark,wet,cold,muddy its all good)but work & family commitments have cut this down to just once.so i've found a local spinning class and tried it a couple of times,but is it any good?or would a turbo trainer be better

  • Spinning is great if it's in addition to normal bike riding, it will improve your fitness, but obviously won't replicate riding for real.

    It's what you use to do in the playground until you went dizzy and fell over. :lol:

    paying to use an exersise bike in a class at the gym

    go up the tip and get an old exersise bike and put it in your garage listen to some thrash metal and pedal like fook

    Spin is on an exercise bike, however it is probably the indoor equivalent of riding in a group, rather than on your own. To get the most out of it you need to listen to your instructor and really give it some welly, it is great for cardio and stamina.

    In my phys sessions in the RAF we do spinning on bikes that are different to the normal exercise bikes.

    they just have a metal front disk and a knob ya turn to alter resistance. its bloody hard work at times!

    Definately good for keeping ya fitness up
