Hi,

I'm new to spinning after months of saying I would try it. I signed up for a 5 week session, All Saturdays and enjoyed it.

This week I added two more classes. Tuesdays and Thursdays. So for the next 10 weeks will do it 3 times a week. Will see after that!

I spin 3 x a week during the summer and four during the winter (they drop the friday evening class during the summer).

They offer two 5:30 am spinning classes. I actually set my alarm to try and attend, but alas, the spirit was willing but the body was week. It's amazing how many times you can hit that snooze button and still keep falling asleep.

I would do it every day if I could; I love it more than any other class and best of all, no steps!!!!
(zumba, hip hop, step classes).

Welcome!

Last week, I ended up doing 8 in four days. So far this week I have done 6 in 3 days. I am trying to take today off, but have already gotten a call and may have to teach a class tonight. I have one tomorrow at 6 am. Man I should be skinny if this keeps up..LOL

I missed about a week and a half of spinning. I had a class last night and it was so hard. I wasn't sure if I could finish. It's amazing how long it takes to get into shape and how fast and easy it is to get out of shape.

Thanks everyone for their great feedback. I'm happy to report that I've been spinning twice a week for a few weeks now and feel great (a little tired).

This week I plan on spinning three times. I spun Monday and last night and will take a class Saturday morning. Yippee!

I suggest 2 or 3 classes for new people, I do 5-6 a week, but some times I end up doing more when other instructors are sick or have to go out of town.

I spin 3 times a week. Spinning is one of my favorite cardio activities. It is the only cardio that doesn't hurt my back.

I just started spinning and I would like to aim for two or three times a week (40-45 minute classes). I've been running a little and doing aerobics before this, but now it's too hot.

You are probably capable of two or three classes a week right now if you allow a day in between. Just modify where you need to. I am a Spinning instructor. I teach one class a week at present and take a second one. I would love to do more but I also do trail running, yoga etc. Keep up the good work and don't feel hopeless. Positive thoughts, positive outcomes.

I do two classes a week. I really enjoy spinning but try to do other forms of cardio as well and vary up my workouts.

Never confuse a single defeat with a final defeat.

Hi Megsam. I just turned 51 and am "addicted" to spinning. I had one trainer tell me if I do too much spinning I can actually start burning muscle which I don't want to do. He said I should hold the classes to three a week, however, this is the one cardio that I love and I do four or five classes a week. I feel great, haven't suffered any injuries, and although I haven't really lost any weight I have toned my thighs, glutes, etc. I don't know what the answer is but this works for me. Good luck to you!

Hey all,

I've been a team member for a while, but don't believe I've posted before. I've been spinning off and on for around 8 years, used to run marathons (1990 - 1997), did a few triathlons, but in the last several years have really fallen off the wagon, now weight 185lbs and am feeling hopeless. I've especially gained weight since my father died 3 years ago. He was a avid cyclist and swimmer.

I belong to Equinox gym in Woodland Hills, CA. but don't go often enough. They have awesome spinning and a beautiful spinning studio. For the past few weeks I've been taking one spinning class a week. I can keep up with the class which I'm grateful for and my bottom doesn't hurt (it's technique). I'd like to go to two spinning classes a week and want to know how quickly to proceed to three. What the rule of thumb?

Thanks all. I've joined the spinning twice a week challenge and hope I can keep it. I'm about to turn 51 and it's really time to drop some weight. emoticon
