Top 5 Reasons to Take a Cardio SPIN class at Lotus Yoga and Fitness
At Lotus Yoga and Fitness we balance the YIN with the YANG. You can come and do a relaxing gentle yoga class or connect with your breath in a flowing Vinyasa class. But you can also get a heart pumping, muscle strengthening workout in one of our Cardio Spin classes. We have two of the best Certified Spin instructors in Ormond Beach who will safely lead you through an amazing workout that is geared toward your individual level. If you have never tried a CARDIO SPIN class before then keep reading and I will tell you some of the many benefits of SPINNING.
1. Improve Cardiovascular Health
Spinning can be performed as an anaerobic exercise, pulling energy from reserves and building up muscular endurance over an extended period of time. However, there are also aerobic benefits. Spin Classes include both endurance and cardiovascular training.
Heart health is an obvious benefit, as is lung capacity. As we work harder we will learn to work on controlled breathing, as well. This may help with anxiety and help lower the heart rate when in a situation where physical exertion begins to take the breath away.
2. Progress at Your Own Pace
Spin classes are good for any one of any level. A beginner can be sitting next to someone who has been Spinning for 10 years. If someone prefers to pedal a little slower they can’t fall behind the rest of the class because no one knows what level anyone else is working at, and they are free to progress at their own pace. It is truly an “individualized” group exercise class!
3. Enjoy an Effective, Low Impact Workout
Many people avoid high impact types of exercise like running because of the traumatic impact on their knees, feet, hips and spine. Spinning is a low impact exercise and enables you to work out hard on the Bike without impact on the body. Spin Classes can also actually be used to rehabilitate an injury because it is non-impact. Many runners use Spin classes simply to cross train because they can keep working their cardiovascular system without impact on the body or injury.
4. Have Fun Riding Together
Regardless of your fitness level, Spin classes at Lotus Yoga and Fitness keep everyone together because each individual works equally as hard at their own level. It is amazing how you can feed off the energy of the instructor or other riders in the class when you begin to fatigue and start thinking you might want to quit. Riding together also gives you the opportunity to encourage others. You can inspire those who have not yet reached your level of fitness, while those stronger than you can inspire you.
5. Build Your Mental Strength
Spinning can also build mental strength. When you do any form of exercise, there are good days and bad based on your energy level or fatigue in the muscles. The important thing is that you carry through with your regular Spin routine, or practice. Push through difficult times, work up the hill climbs and ride through the endurance training. Self-discipline of the mind gained from Spinning can be applied to all areas of life. It is most beneficial in areas of self-control and confidence. Spinning really does help to develop a positive, “can do” attitude.
So come and Spin at the only Yoga and Spin Studio in Ormond beach, and let us help you to reach your goals.
