A spin bike is a stationary bike found mostly in gyms and training centres. It is said to provide a full-body workout and is very effective at strengthening the hips, thighs, calves, abs, and shoulders.
Spin bikes have the additional advantage of allowing you to stand up as you train, which has been proven to maximize weight loss. Most hour-long training sessions allow you to burn around 750–1,000 calories based on your weight, age, fitness level, and gender.
Some features of spinning bikes include:
- reinforced pedals
- minimal seat padding
- adjustable seats
- textured handlebars
- display consoles
- large solid frames
- water bottle holders
- weight capacity of up to 350 pounds
The reinforced pedals can easily support people of different heights and weights. Seats are rarely padded because standing up is very important when using spinning bikes. Handlebars are textured to maximize users’ comfort and to protect your fingers from blisters and sores.
Some spinning bikes come with a display console that allows you to track your fitness-related data such as distance covered, the number of pedal strokes, calories burned, and time elapsed. The frames are large and solid to keep the bike from wobbling, even when you’re pedalling vigorously. Some spinning bikes also have amenities such as water bottle holders.
