Myth 1- Spinning is only for the fit/professional biker
Yes, spinning is a high-energy cardio workout where you will be sweating it out and burning a lot of calories. But, whoever said that it is meant only for the professionals?
You can be a professional biker looking to up your game or a first-timer hoping to start off your healthy lifestyle – spinning is truly for one and all. You can start at 0 or 100, BUT JUST START SPINNING!
Did you know? More than 50% of PedalBeaters were first timers when we started off! Now, some of them are seen outshining the professional cyclists!
Myth 2 – It’s only for the young
Are you often fooled by images of spinning classes showing young people pedalling furiously?
Your answer, a spinning class is designed for everyone at any age. Not only can seniors enjoy these classes, but also have cardiovascular benefits.
In fact, to Mrs. Sujani Balu, Pedal Beat was god sent, as it helps her stay healthy and refreshed even at the age of 69.
Myth 3 – Cycling will make my legs bulky
This myth has got people thinking twice about indoor cycling; women, in particular, think it might make their legs masculine.
Yes, you primarily work on your legs at a spin class, but it is all about varying resistance and speed while spinning.
And the only thing your legs will get is lean and sculpted. If you don’t believe us, next time when u see someone cycling indoor or outdoor take a good look at their legs and judge for yourself.
Myth 4 – Speed is the key to spinning
You may think this class is all about speed, where you have to keep up with the group or you will end up last in line.
Let us break this down for you, spinning is as challenging as you want it to be! It is a highly individual workout where you sprint, climb and do a lot of different exercises. So it is a lot more than just speed.
Have fun, take charge of your workout, pay attention to your instructor and spin.
