The 25 ‘Johnny G Spirit Bikes’ have now arrived at theclub, at Cadbury House in Congresbury, North Somerset and represents an investment of £50,000.
The latest in spinning and fitness technology, these electronically controlled magnetic resistance system bikes operate off a belt drive system and provides users the feel of a road bike. They also create their own power with a generator built into the frame so no batteries are used.
Suitable for all levels of fitness, it is hoped the bikes will add to the gym experience for members. It means those who take part in the spinning classes will be using the most technologically advanced bikes giving them the best possible work out.
An aerobic exercise that takes place on a specially designed stationary bicycle, spinning has taken the health and fitness industry by storm. Those taking part pedal whilst motivating music plays and the instructor talks giving instruction on what to do.
During the class those taking part vary their pace, sometimes pedalling as fast as they can, other times cranking up the tension and pedalling slowly from a standing position.
Jason Eaton, general manager at the club said: “We want our members to have the best facilities possible and is why we are constantly updating the equipment.
“The arrival of these new spinning bikes is great news and shows our commitment to our members to provide the best possible equipment. The spinning classes are very popular so it’s great to upgrade the spinning studio.
“Spin classes offer a fun and energetic workout that burns calories and fat and tones the bum and thighs.”
Lasting around 40 minutes, a spin class will be led by the instructor, who takes participants through a series of endurance, sprints and climbs that gets the heart pumping.
Burning around 500 calories, indoor cycling can also improve people’s overall physical fitness by building
strength and cardiovascular endurance. Attending a class can also help boost people’s mood and provide them with a healthy, enjoyable activity.
Jason added: “Spinning tones the thigh muscles and because you stay in one place with the same basic movement throughout, it doesn't involve a lot of coordination so it's easier to concentrate on your form than in other types of aerobic classes.
“And although you follow the general instructions of the spinning teacher, you are in control when it comes to your pace. You can finish a spin class, regardless of your fitness level, simply by adjusting your pace or the tension knob on the bike.”
