Spinning is not something I've done extensively, only a few times last winter. One leader I liked the other was so-so. The combination of the right leader, the right tunes and spinning can be an AWESOME workout. AND for us in the northern lats it offers at least SOME form of cycling during the cold weather.
They went and revamped the stationary bikes at the fitness center: same hardware, at least to the eye, but the software has been upgraded. Not sure of the model # but it's TrueFitness. I've always groused that they won't put any of the spinning bikes out on the general workout floor. They just squirrel 'em away for classes only. The stationary bike's "rolling hills" setting, with enough resistance allowed for some stiff cycling that allowed me to quasi-spin with standing climbs at the highest resistance.
Now? I've maxed out the settings on the stationary bike's resistance and I'm just sitting there pedaling...can't do my standing CLIMBS anymore...! Argh!
What are other's thoughts / experiences regarding Spinning?
