In the past decade, indoor spinning classes have become the new craze.

Spin classes now are far from a typical bike ride. Bikes are mounted to the floor in a dark room with flashing lights and loud music.

Spin classes are not only a leg workout but also a whole body workout because classes include weights, resistance bands and push-ups. Common spin classes available at cycle bars and gyms can range from classic to extreme; each class has a different goal and level of difficulty.

Junior Olivia Servideo is an active spinner.

“I love spin classes because the upbeat music creates a fun atmosphere rather than working out in a boring gym,” Servideo said.

The stationary bikes have adjustable tensions you can change during the class. The trainer indicates when to change the tension, or you can do it at your own pace and adjust it according to your abilities and fitness goals.

Unlike other types of activities like jogging, which can be unpleasant during the summer months, a spinning class can be performed any time during the year.

Cycling has proven benefits for older adults and for those just getting into fitness.

Cycle Bar is located on Donald Ross Rd. in Palm Beach Gardens. In addition to spin classes, the gym hosts charity events for those in need.

Jupiter High School’s Key Club took this opportunity at Cycle Bar to raise money for Dance Marathon by hosting a fundraising event at Cycle Bar on Jan. 10.

Sophomore Lindsey Fine, a member of the dance team, attended the event to support Dance Marathon.

“I really enjoyed the exercises and the instructor was great. I left feeling very inspired,” Fine said.
