It allows me to understand what my body (and my mind) is capable of doing and the endorphin rush that follows is a great way to combat stress. Spin class is a fantastic option to challenge yourself for a workout that is low impact on your joints. I started participating in spin class a year ago and I am hooked on it! If you’re ready for an awesome challenge I encourage you to give spin a try and I look forward to having you in my class!”.
