I am feeling some better. not nearly as congested or run down as I did on Monday or Tuesday. But still need some time to get completely better I think.

When I completed my first Spin Class last week, everyone told me wow, how did you do it. Those classes are a killer. Push your self through three complete classes, which is what I did and then I found myself wanting to go more. The instructor told me that until I get strength I may not be able to stand much, I tried but my knees could not do it. I bought a knee brace for my right knee which was fractured when I was 6 yrs old and this week, the knee , both of them actually are stronger.Last nights spin class, I found myself standing more and for longer periods until the injured knee starting giving out. I was also told by the instructor that it will take anywhere from 3 - 4 weeks of coming to class 4 times a week to be able to build the strength and keep standing. I see improvement with myself everyday. I love the Spin Class. Never tried it before last week and I got through the initials sore muscles and pain. No pain, no gain. I want to say no pain, no loss, because I want to get this weight off. I am going to class after work, Mon - Thurs and I am loving it. :)

I am actually writing my own 45 minute programs. Loving the fact that I finally know the whole process of how it works and can safely do it. :) Now if only I can kick this cold and feel well enough to hit the gym! :)

Well the ones at LA Fitness are an hour. That's the gym I belong to. When I did my class it went from 5:30 to 6:30 on the dot. The instructor had the music timing down to a T. I really need to go and start doing it again.

LOL silly George, most normal spin classes are 45 minutes, our gym being a medical facilities has intro classes and lets people come for as long as short as they want to epically when you are just starting.

I survived my first week of Spin Class and I am on my second week and still loving it. My knees are getting stronger and I am able to stand more. I fractured my right knee when I was 6 yrs old and it never healed right. I bought a knee brace for support. I am going 4 times a week and I have received great encouragement from the instructor. What I love the most is that you burn so many calories in such a short time (45minutes). I am watching what I eat and tracking it on Sparkpeople along with my fitness minutes and looking forward to class tonight. :)

I started taking cycle classes in 2007 on a dare from a coworker and fell in love. I took the 30 minute into class for a few months took some 45 minute classes too. I went to 1 class and hated it vowed I would never go back to one of her classes again because I thought I was going to die! After about 6 months to a year I went back and now she is my favorite teacher. :) I loved it so much in fact I am not certified to teach and have been making my own workouts to try.

I hear great things about Spin class though I think it would kill me emoticon It is always best to find an cardio exercise you love that way we are more likely to continue with it

I used to do spin classes way back in 2000 and loved it. I did them 4 times a week. They were very popular. I missed two classes in a row because there was no parking spot left for my car. Since then I never went back and now I exercise at home. The thing I miss most about not going to the gym are the classes!!!

Hi Cat,

Wow, that's incredible! I did my first spin class about a month ago and haven't been back since lol. I really did like it but it was one of the hardest exercise routines I ever did. It's inspiring to hear that you're able to keep going back. I need to follow your example. Nice job!

George

Hello everyone,
I decided to try a Spin Class after work on Monday and I am loving it. I completed my second class last night and I am hooked. I cannot believe the amount of calories you burn during just 45 minutes of a Spin Class. Right now I am going Mon. Wed, Fri after work and then on Sat morning. Once I get my muscle strength built up, I would love to do this everyday after work.
