Make sure your position is correct and seat is not too low. Ask instructor to watch you for correct form. Keep your feed straight and knees moving up and down. Don't let your knees go out as the bend. Called the line of force that keeps hips to ball of foot inline.

I will be spinning again for the first time in quite a few months. I am a little nervous as my knees hurt too when I did it before.

Where is the pain?

Your position might be off.

Where to start.

The shoes - feet - central axis of the bike, vargus/valgus, position over pedals. This sets the line of force for the knees, ankles, and hips.

Next, seat up, down, fore aft.

Bars. height, fore aft.

Back off and go easy. Might want to get some shoes with the SPD cleats to keep the foot in a better position. Research bike position. I will be honest, most spinning instructors don't have enough experience fitting you to the bike.

A video front back side and a trained fitter can tell you where to look.

Adjustments are not real fine on the spinning bikes. Allow yourself time to adapt and don't get down on yourself. Get in the gym and practice your form.

Check out this link. I bring a Goniometer to class and if the knee is much larger than 35 degrees it seat way too low. You can adjust height, fore aft. A lower saddle can cause knee pain. Don't go to high or you will rock.

Pain is not usally normal were you set up by an instructor? I would go early and have them check your settings next time.

The road to success is not straight. There is a curve called Failure, a loop called Confusion, speed bumps called Friends, red lights called Enemies, caution lights called Family. You will have flats called Jobs. But, if you have a spare called Determination, an engine called Perseverance, insurance called Faith, a driver called Jesus, you will make it to a place called Success.

Hey everyone! I am new to spinning, so far I love it! It's such a great workout, but I was wondering if it's normal to get pain in your joints? It feels more like a sharp pain rather then an ache. Ever since I started I randomly get pains in my knees and ankles. They don't last too long, but they hurt. Could there be something I'm doing wrong?

Aim for progress not perfection!

There are no shortcuts to any place worth going.

You don't have to go fast, you just have to go.
