Indoor cycling, commonly called spinning, has increased in popularity as it offers a motivating workout adaptable to a person’s fitness level. Classes are led by a professional who takes spinners through exercise routines, set to music, on specially designed stationary bikes.
Benefits include increased energy, cardiovascular fitness and lower body strength.
The Wellness Center’s one-hour classes are offered at various times starting at 6 a.m.
Its 4:30 p.m. class on Thursday, “Ultimate Spin Challenge,” is recommended for spinners with experience or those who seek a faster and more intense workout.
Spinning is set at the user’s pace, but the cardiovascular benefits are greater as the speed and resistance increase, burning off calories and fat.
The Wellness Center’s one-week free pass can be used to check out the new cardio equipment, free weights and weight machines, pool, and locker rooms.
The Wellness Center is in the 2665 Professional Building of the DeKalb Medical North Decatur campus, 2701 North Decatur Road in Decatur. For more information, call 404-501-2222.
