Spinning is being heralded as one of the best aerobic workouts that you can put the body through.  For those of you who don’t know what spinning is, it’s an aerobic exercise carried out on specialist spinning bikes.  Unlike your usual gym bike, spinning bikes cut a streamline figure and have ditched the gadgets, buttons and LED screens – it’s simply not needed.  The bikes are sleek in design, simple to adjust and easy to use, with just one control to increase or decrease resistance.

Spinning classes are argued to be one of the most intense cardiovascular workouts, burning up to 700 calories in a 60 minute session as opposed to roughly 600 in Zumba and around 490 calories for a one hour aerobics class.  Classes are led by an enthusiastic instructor and follow fast-paced rhythms to loud and encouraging music.  If you’ve ever experience a spinning class, you’ll know that even after the 10 minute warm up your gym clothes are wringing wet; that is the sign of a fantastic aerobic workout.

Finding time to attend exercise classes these days isn’t always a simple option for many people, including us here at The Fitness Store, which is why we are so excited that you can now buy Spinning Bikes for your own home – just crank up the music and get peddling!  We have an extensive range of these innovative pieces of fitness equipment to suit any budget: from as little as £399.99, which is a huge saving on how much you would be paying for classes for the whole year.  So if you’re not comfortable with showing your sweat-drenched face to strangers, you can still get the same intense workout from the comfort of your own home.

Our favourite Spinning Bike is the Sole SB700 racer bike, which is only £899.  The SB700 features a range of intelligent attributes, including the esteemed Kevlar breaking system for a quiet workout – making it perfect for using in the home without disturbing the rest of the house.  Designed for comfort and durability, the heavy duty chrome frame will provide impeccable stability when you’re carrying out those all-important sprints.
