Spinning in Chiang Mai

Yes, today was my first time. A neighbor asked me a few weeks ago and today I was able to go (or I had the courage to go) And it was FUN!! Here is how it goes, explained well in Wikipedia so I’ll  just copy and paste…

Indoor cycling is a form of high-intensity exercise that involves using a stationary exercise bicycle in a classroom setting. Ultra-endurance athlete Jonathan Goldberg[citation needed] created the concept of Indoor Cycling in the 1980s.

A typical class involves a single instructor at the front of the class who leads the participants through routines that are designed to simulate terrain and situations similar to riding a bike outdoors. Some of the movements and positions include hill climbs, sprints and interval training. A well-trained instructor uses music, motivation and enthusiastic coaching to lead students through a ride that best suits their fitness level and goals. Most instructors will lead what is called an interval ride, this is where students will sprint, run, climb, and jump all in the same ride but there will not be definable pattern to the exercises.

After one hour I was drenched in sweat, exhausted and felt GREAT. I will definitely be going again next week !!
