CLASS DESCRIPTIONS:

Spinning:  

WHERE: SHAPE Room # 212. 

INSTRUCTORS: Ellen Hill and Krystal Woodward

DESCRIPTION: Our spinning program offers an energizing, cycling-inspired group exercise training program with expert coaching, exhilarating music, and a unique mind/body philosophy – all at a self-directed pace. During the class, the instructor simulates a ride. Together, you will travel flat roads, climb hills, sprint, and race! It is truly a fantastic cardiovascular class. Bring a towel and water and be ready to sweat!

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

A fitting Tank or t-shirt with cycling shorts is recommended for comfort on the saddle. Cycling shoes with SPD clips are recommended for a superior ride, but stiff-sole athletic shoes are ok, too. New riders are encouraged to arrive early for the instructor to help you get set up properly on the bike.

ARRIVAL TIME

First-time riders are encouraged to arrive 15 minutes early to settle in and give our instructor a few minutes to show you the ins and outs of the ride. Because of safety concerns, new riders not be admitted to class if they arrive late. All classes start on time, so make sure you’re on the bike before the lights go down.

HYDRATE

Hydration is the key to an energizing, effective and successful ride. Make sure to drink water during and after the ride.

BIKE SET-UP

Proper alignment on the Spinning bike is essential to protecting your knees, shoulders, and back. For safety and effectiveness of the ride, it is important that a trained instructor assist you in setting up your bike.
