Spin off! 🚵♀️ When it comes to spinning, there are so many benefits: 🚵♀️Happy hormone release - those little endorphins keep you on a mental high for hours! 🚵♀️Heart rate surge – a great push for the heart.
To determine your target heart rate, subtract your age from 220. This figure represents your theoretical maximum heart rate. 🚵♀️Calorie blast – burn 450calories (female) in a 40-minute workout (female) ad 550 (men) – based on the research of Hermal Falsetti, a cardiologist specialising in sports medicine. To burn fat, you should exercise at 75% of your maximum heart rate. Exercising at higher percentages of your maximum heart rate will build cardiovascular strength. 🚵♀️Quads and Hip Flexors toned up – helps with balance too but don’t forget to also work on the opposite muscles – hamstrings and hip extensors 🚵♀️Camaraderie – an invigorating shared energy in the room 🚵♀️Music- revs the pace and charges up the speed 🚵♀️Challenge and push that you set for yourself – fosters a can-do mindset 🚵♀️Spin Zen – a time to get lost in the music, to get lost in your thoughts, to feel the heat from your muscles, to feel the sweat on you skin and to de-stress!
Happy before….Euphoric after!
