FIRST TIME CYCLE RIDERS – WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?
You can burn over 300 calories in 30 minutes or 600 calories in 50 minutes, but you’ll work for every single one of those. Which makes indoor cycling classes a catch-22: they’re a killer workout, but downright intimidating if you’re not a pro.
Fear not, cycling newbies. Follow these tips and you’ll kill it in class and be jonesing for another class.
Try to think of your instructor as a guide—he or she should give you general guidelines about how much resistance to add, how fast to pedal, how hard you should be working, and when to do certain movements (like standing, sitting, sprinting, etc.). Using these cues as guidelines, it’s up to you to work out at your own level and pay attention to how you feel. You can recover, go slower, use less resistance, or vice versa depending on how hard you want to work. In a class format, everyone feels a bit of pressure to keep up. However, Spinning/Indoor Cycling is non-competitive. Especially if you’re a beginner, remember that it will take a few weeks to build up your fitness level to be able to work hard for the whole class. It’s important to honor your body and work at a lower intensity as you get the hang of it.
If you are new, show up early and ask some questions. If your bike isn’t set up right, not only will you be uncomfortable, you’re not going to get the body benefits. Don’t be afraid to ask for help!
RIDE YOUR RIDE
When you’re huffing and puffing and then look over and see the girl next to you riding without a sign of sweat, it’s like uuugh. Fitness is about getting strong and bettering yourself, regardless of where you are when you begin. Experiencing a new workout can be intimidating, but know that at some point everybody was new. It is up to you to control how hard you work.
Don’t ever bike on an empty stomach — your best bet is to eat a little something about an hour before you ride.
WEAR WHAT MAKES YOU COMFORTABLE
Workout clothes (but no long/baggy pants, because those can get caught in the pedals/wheels) and flat-soled workout shoes are a must. If you have them, SPD cycling shoes with cleats (that clip into the bike pedals) can make your workout more effective.
HOW DO I SETUP MY BIKE?
Spinner bikes are engineered to fit all shapes, sizes and abilities. Our bikes allow you to tailor your saddle and handlebar positions to create the perfect fit, and this is important. With the proper bike setup, you reap the full benefits of the Spinning® movements and minimize the risk of injury. If you are new to the Spinning program, be sure to arrive to class at least 15 minutes early to discuss bike safety and setup with your instructor.
Stand next to your bike and adjust the saddle so that it is approximately level with your hip. Sit on the bike, with both hands on the handlebars and place the widest part of your foot (where your big toe joint is), on the center of the pedal and push directly downward. Your knee should be slightly bent at the bottom of the pedal stroke. Adjust your saddle height if necessary. When you pedal, your hips should not rock from side to side.
If toe cages and straps are used, be sure to align the ball of your foot over the center of the pedal. This is the firmest, widest part of your foot and therefore the most efficient and comfortable foot position. If clipless pedals are used, make sure that your cleats are aligned properly on your shoes so that the ball of your foot is positioned on the center of the pedal.
FORE/AFT SEAT POSITION:
The seat also adjusts forward and backward, so that your knees will be properly aligned relative to your feet. Sit on the saddle in riding position, with your hands on the handlebars and the balls of your feet over the center of the pedals. Then position the pedals so they’re level with each other. Your seat is in the right position when your knee cap is directly above the center of the pedal.
Adjust the handlebars to a position that is comfortable and limits unnecessary strain on your neck and back.
