Read on to find out why that cycle class you’ve heard so much about, could quite possibly be the best thing you have ever done!

Happy Hormones
You know the feeling you get when you’ve got a bonus at work or even a great buy on a large purchase?  It’s that warm and fuzzy feeling! That is your body releasing feel-good endorphins into your bloodstream. And guess what? Exercise does that too!  You may not be buying this just yet, but we would highly bet if you jump on a Spin bike or took a class that you would feel much better than you did going in! This is because exercise produces endorphins which interact with receptors in your brain and trigger positive feelings in your body. You’ll leave the class feeling physically tired but mentally you’ll be on a high, and that is the feeling you’ll become addicted to.  This is why staying active and fit can help so many people battle depression and other negative mental and physical health conditions including stress.

Cycling Is A Low-Impact Exercise
Cycling is perfect if you are recently recovering from an injury or surgery or just need to take things a little more gently. Of course, you can still get a great workout, but as the bike is stationary there is no risk that you will fall off or collide with another.  It also means you can focus on working towards your fitness goals. If you are unsure whether a cycling class would be something you will love, give us a call at 586-267-5139, and we can answer any questions you may be wondering about. Be sure to arrive early in your first class so that instructor can set you up on the bike safely.

Increase Your Cardiovascular Fitness
Cardiovascular fitness is the ability of the heart, blood cells, and lungs to provide oxygenated blood to our muscles allowing them to produce energy so we can move. Basically, the more cardiovascular fitness you have the easier it will be for you to move and stay active. It will also lessen your chances of getting Coronary Heart Disease and other cardiovascular health problems.

Lean Muscle Definition For Your Legs And Core
One of the best advantages of a spin class is the increase in muscle definition in your legs and core.   We’re sure you already know how important the strength of your core is.  It basically holds your body upright.  

As you start to build more lean muscle definition you are likely to notice your body shape will change in all the right places. Plus the more muscle mass you have the more calories your body burns day-to-day, even when resting.

Cycling Relieves Stress
There’s no arguing about it because it has been scientifically proven that exercise can help to reduce stress. Focusing on your workout allows you to clear your head and temporarily forget whatever stressful day you may be dealing with in your personal life or at work.  Exercising makes you feel good about yourself and increases your confidence, all of which help to reduce stress within our daily lives.

You, Will, Reduce The Risk Of Injury
Unused muscles and joints become weak, tired, and stiff.  They are like a car that sits and doesn’t run.  When you go to start it up, it may be slow to go.   The more fit your body is, the easier it is to complete daily tasks and the fewer injuries you will subject to.

You, Will, Be Part Of A Group
Joining a cycling class is a great way to meet new people. Working out with others not only subconsciously makes you work harder but it creates a sense of friendship.

Challenge Yourself To New Limits
You will set the pace of your workout, push yourself to new limits, and see the benefits of cycling.  If you’re not feeling it one day, then you can take it a bit easier.  Or if you’ve had a bad day, you can take your aggression out in the class!
