Spinning class?

Recommended Posts

hi jm,

in my opinion....the spin shoes are essential. they keep your legs in place and i feel like i get a better workout. also when i forget them and have to use my regular sneakers..i am now worried my foot will slip out while riding.

someone that used to work for me had this happen and had a big gash in her leg.

i got mine on ebay.....they arent too expensive.

dibaby; absolutely you can get them. they are pretty unisex so maybe look at mens too

oh one thing i forgot...

i use 2 things to avoid butt soreness during spin class.

they have bike shorts with the cushion in the seat area. you can get them at any sports store like sports authority, academy, paragon, etc

they also have a cushioned seat that you can put on top of the seat. this works well too but my only problem with this is i keep forgetting them....

I have mens spinning shoes and I am sure you can find those in your size. Also, they are supposed to be snug (they tell me).

I LOVE spinning class. I have been doing it for about 3 months now 3 days a week in combo with other exercise. The soreness from the seat went away for me after about the 3rd time.

I just started my spin classes but I had read somewhere in a post that there were cushions you could get for the seats. Where can I find one? The spinning doesn't make me sore the seat does :eek:

I know, once I walked into a cycle shop asking for spin shoes and everyone looked at me like I had two heads....Hello, cycle shop!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Spinning seems very hard for an outsider but believe me it is great fun way to get cardio in. My advice...go at your own pace but keep moving, your butt will be sore at first but it gets better! I have been doing the class for a while without the shoes or the seat, but since I moving up to 2 days a week I will invest in the shoes and the padded butt biking shorts!!! the padded seat moves around to much for me. look for an instructor that will push you and that changes up the routine a little. Yell, scream when you need to boost yourself up that "hill", then clap for your self after making it up that "hill" it helps!

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Spinning..

i credit spinning for helping me with much of my weight loss. that and 2 other great classes: total conditioning and kickboxing

key for me are a great pair of cycle bike shorts with the cushioned booty. the first time i did spin without padding.....YOUSER!

i also need the spin shoes because they keep my foot in the correct position.

i had a hard time finding the correct shoes for spin when i lived in NYC (of all places). here is texas all of the bike shops have lots of options.

target/academy/modell's all have the cushioned seats in the bicycle area.

if you are just starting....just sit in the back and go at your own pace. the thing i love about this is any level can participate. just go to a few different instructors to find what you like.

i love rhythm based classes. a friend of mine loves technical.

just dont give up after 1-2 classes. i hated it at first and now i'm obsessed with it after going for about 5 years.

i am now doing the MS150 here in texas....all a result of conditioning in spin

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        Congratulations. It’s a great feeling when the weight disappears & you can start to do so much more. 😁

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
