Online PR News – 06-February-2013 – Puyalllup, Washington – Competitive Edge Fitness is excited to announce a new fitness program for adults. Get back into shape with our new Spinning class! What is it? Spinning is an aerobic exercise that takes place on a specially designed stationary bicycle called a spinning bike. As you pedal, motivating music plays and the instructor talks you through a visualization of an outdoor cycling workout: "You're going up a long hill now, you can't see the top yet.…" During the class you vary your pace -- sometimes pedaling as fast as you can, other times cranking up the tension and pedaling slowly from a standing position. This helps you to focus inwardly and work on your mind as well as your body.
Why we like it: Spinning burns lots of calories (about 450 in 45 minutes) and offers an aerobic workout that makes your heart pump fast. It also tones your quadriceps (front thigh muscles) and outer thigh muscles. Because you stay in one place with the same basic movement throughout, Spinning doesn't involve a lot of coordination; 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.
Beginner classes are offered Tuesdays and Thursdays at 5pm. Advanced classes are offered Tuesdays and Thursdays at 5:45pm. For more information call 253-845-0490 or visit our website www.gottheedge.com.
