8 Smart Tips for the Beginner Spinner

You’ve witnessed the pedaling, the screaming, the sweat, the standing, the sitting… and while you have been trying to conjure up the nerve to give it a try, your insecure self says, nah, I’ll just jump on the treadmill where I can watch some TV and sweat (if I am lucky) in my own little world!


It’s time to get out of your comfort zone - and you will feel so invigorated and grateful that you did! However, as a beginner spinner, you need to know some basic pointers to jump on that bicycle seat with confidence…


#1 Select the right class for you

You are finally brave enough to jump into a sweaty spinning session, but be sure to opt for a class and instructor that will put you in the right mood. If you notice a certain class is always on the full side, and you happen to love the tunes blaring, chances are it’s a good one. Give it a try and see if the atmosphere is right for you!


#2 Decide if you prefer a morning or evening class

Some people have a robust sense of energy when they jump out of bed in the morning… while others prefer to release their pent up energy after a long day at the office. It’s yours for the choosing, see what suits you best.


#3 Be an early bird

Being punctual to a spinning class is a MUST! You need to ensure you get your hands on a bike that suits your needs and you want to be able to set it up on time. You might have to ask for some assistance with adjusting too.


#4 Have a towel on hand

You are going to sweat like you have never sweat before! A towel on hand should be a no-brainer… but hey, you are a novice after all!


#5 Dress appropriately

It is so important to wear the right type of workout clothing when spinning – you know, the breathable and moisture wicking type of sportswear that will keep you comfy and sane. And BTW:  wear a good sports bra to keep the girls in their place.


#6 Know your limits

As a beginner, you don’t want to overdo it! As you get used to the class and get a grip on the routine, you can up your resistance and speed with time.


#7 Stay well hydrated

You will be sweating buckets… guaranteed… so having a water bottle on hand is essential. Replace lost fluids by taking small sips on a regular basis.


#8 Know when to take a break

Chances are you aren’t going to cycle like a pro the first time around – and that’s OK! If you need to take a break in between intervals, so be it. The amazing thing is you are in the middle of an amazing spinning class and you won’t be a beginner for much longer!
