Spin is not a workout — it’s a lifestyle.
Most people run or use the gym to stay fit, while others find unique ways to have fun while working out. Indoor cycling, or most commonly known as “spin”, integrates stationary biking with high energy EDM, pop, and hip-hop music.
Open for three years now, TEAMRide in East Sacramento has become the go-to spot for spinners at CB.
“Every time I walk into TEAMRide, I get so excited for my class,” Shelby Rodich (’16) enthusiastically says. The instructors are amazing and it’s so welcoming.”
TEAMRide boasts 20 instructors who all put their own spin — no pun intended — on spin class. Each instructor manages to motivate and excite every individual in the room with an upper body component and specialized moves for each song. Spin has become the ultimate 45 minute workout.
“I didn’t like working out by myself at the gym and I heard that spin was a really fun and interactive way to workout,” Maci Meyer (’16) says excitedly. “I was interested in seeing what it was like and after I completed my first class, I was hooked.”
At TEAMRide each person in the room becomes family. Throughout the intervals and songs, the whole group in the room works together to achieve the same goal. The goal is to feel like you’ve accomplished something.
“I love the motivating energy in the room and how encouraging everyone is,” Shelby explains.
The workouts may seem long and never ending, but after finishing the class many find that the challenge was worth it.
“You sweat so much and you feel really gross, but the feeling of persevering through a class is the best feeling ever,” Maci commented.
A few members of Talon participated in a spin class at TEAMRide and felt very welcomed by the instructors and fellow workout buddies.
“The atmosphere was very welcoming and despite being a newbie I felt very comfortable throughout the class,” sats Talon staffer Luci Plazibat (’16).
So if you ever feel like the gym is not going to cut it for you, try a high energy spin class.
