Spinning refers to indoor, group stationary cycling usually led by a certified instructor. It is a non-impact workout for people of all ages and fitness levels.
The spinning bike is a specially designed stationary bicycle that is designed to mimic an outdoor bicycle ride. The bike has fixed gear-racing handlebars, pedals equipped with clips or cages and an adjustable bike seat. The intensity of your workout can be adjusted by manipulating the resistance knob, which is located on each spinning bicycle.
Spinning began in 1989 in Southern California when bike racer Johnny Goldberg opened the first spinning center. It has gained popularity in the last few years.
