Spinning and Indoor Cycling
At Midlothian Athletic Club, we offer indoor cycling (Spinning® ) classes that will challenge the most important muscle of your body, your heart! Indoor cycling classes provide a cardio challenge while minimizing wear and tear on the joints. Indoor cycling is truly the most inclusive class of all since each rider is in control of their individual intensity. This allows each rider to work at their own desired intensity in any class.
We value Spinning® at our health club, which is why we are an officially licensed Spinning® facility. This means MAC has the best indoor cycling bikes endorsed by Spinning®, and the majority of our instructors are certified by the Spinning® program. The Spinning® program is the global leader in indoor cycling training, education and equipment. Uniquely tailored to suit a wide range of abilities and fitness goals, the Spinning® program and patented Spinner® bikes deliver a personalized workout, incredible calorie burn and personal challenge-all at a self-directed pace.
Spinning®: Get your sweat on to time or music-based aerobic endurance conditioning and anaerobic interval training motivated by expert instruction! (Our instructors hold a current Spinning® certification from Mad Dogg Athletics). Classes focus on drills that build power and endurance on the bike and brief, high intensity bursts that push past your anaerobic threshold to increase your cycling power! As for all indoor cycling classes, members are encouraged to use individual power and/or heart rate zones to make the class personally challenging and beneficial. Water bottles are recommended.
