The Saturday Spin – Indoor Cycling Workout

The Saturday Spin – Indoor Cycling Workout

Happy Saturday, everyone!  I’ve decided to do a new series of posts dedicated to one of my absolute favorite workouts of all time:  Spinning.  I am a Spinning certified instructor and a huge fan of the program because it gets people in the best shape, both mind, and body.

Maybe you don’t want to get up super early Saturday to take a cycling class at your gym, but you do have access to a bike and would like to get a planned out, structured, kick-ass workout without having to think about it.  If this describes your Saturday morning, I have made this with you in mind!



I will be adding new rides to this page for you to take the gym with you on Saturday (or any day of the week).

Check out this awesome infographic from All About Being Healthy to see how an indoor cycling workout can change your body and your life.

I love indoor cycling because it’s what saved me and made me LOVE fitness and health again.  When I attended my training to become a certified Spinning instructor, the group I trained with had over 25 people and every single one of them said, “Spinning has saved my life.”

Five things you need to STOP thinking about indoor cycling!

  1. “My butt always hurts on the seat.”  Your butt will get used to the seat.  Yes, it will.
  2. “Indoor cycling makes me feel self-conscious.”  Indoor cycling is practically incapable of causing self-consciousness.
  3. “I’m not coordinated enough.”  Even the most uncoordinated of us can rock indoor cycling.
  4. “People in those classes are like a cult.”  Those of us who love it are not crazy.  We’re badass, and always love people who join us.
  5. I tried it and hated it.”  I did too.  But listen, if you can stick it out to three workouts, you will begin to like it, and by five workouts you will LOVE it.  

I will let the workouts speak for themselves.

    Great post, my friend! I don’t mind cycling but running is my one true love. If I do ever need to get on the bike, this sounds like a perfect workout to help me break it down mentally into sections. That’s the toughest part of the bike for me: the mental anguish. But this plan looks like it would really help me with that aspect. And I have to add that I sweat more on the stationary bike than I do anything else! Sweat literally drips off my nose, and that IS pretty badass, I must say.

      I love cycling! I also love to run, but I have so many knee and back issues that Spinning was a better option and it just stuck. Being an instructor also gave me do much confidence too! Let me know if you try it out! 🙂
