Something seems wrong with this picture. A queue of people line up waiting for the 47 sweaty people on spinning bikes to get off. Meanwhile, an instructor is shouting at them like a drill sergeant. "Sprint!" ?Add resistance!" "Go to second position!" "Run in third position!" But hard as it seems, spinning has caught on from Sydney to Shanghai. Inside Quad Spinning in Toronto, you have to place a reservation in advance to spin on the weekend, says Toronto Star reporter Rita Zekas.
You book your bikes on line a week in advance and can cancel on line too - jsut check out the web site page' who is riding'
But there is not the usual shouting by instructors in this studio - it is COACHING !!!
I thought it would be like other Indoor cycling classes I have experienced at gyms but these guys have set themselves apart to deliver a very unique offering and yes it is a small personal studio with only Spinning bikes.
Firstly the instructors are really into cycling ! They have all done Iron Mans / Triathlons or are into cycling or MTB'ing ~ what a refreshing difference to get coached - almost 1 to 1 as my Pedal Stroke was corrected.
I had never heard of Heart Rate training and this was very interesting and FREE, the feedback I got that comes to my email account on my training ( including calories burnt) was fantastic - again 1-1 training but what was key is it really kept me from going overboard and over killing things in class, it was amazing how easy it is to stay in the FAT BURN zone.
No contracts , no fuss ~ just a simple Pay as You Spinning classes and I bought the 10 ride pack so it was £5 a ride after the £10 for 7 consec days intro offer.
As you can see I was totally impressed, such friendly people, and I have now even joined their in-house Pro Vo2 Triathlon club - just fab fab fab.
