Here's what some of our recent clients told us:

"Often times I go to a class when I'm away and it's nothing to write home about, but last Monday's 6:30 pm class was definitely "high octane". I didn't catch the instructors name but she certainly rocks. You may certainly quote me on your web site. Not sure when and if I'll be back in the Dominican but I would certainly take another class. My only regret is I only took the one class. "

"'I did a spin class last night with my wife at the studio. WOW!!! It kicked my butt! That class is tough. I have no doubts that you are ripping through some calories in this class. I wasn't expecting a hard class and all I can say is the class was simply AWESOME. Rivals anything offered anywhere else.''

''What exactly is Spinning?''

Spinning was created by world-class cyclist "Jonny G." Goldberg as a convenient and quick way to train for races. In 1989, he and John Baudhuin opened the first spinning center in Santa Monica, California and then developed a program to certify other spinning instructors. Curious to know about this spinning thing? The following info will help you decide if it's for you:

What is it? Spinning is an aerobic exercise that takes place on a specially designed stationary bicycle called (obviously enough) 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 love it: Spinning burns serious calories (about 450 in 45 minutes) and offers an awesome aerobic workout that makes your heart pump fast. It also tones your quadriceps (front thigh muscles) and outer thigh muscles like nobody's business! 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.

There are plenty of good reasons why the 'Spinning Studio' in Cabarete has been the most popular place on the North Coast to work out for more than 10 years; our highly trained and motivated instructors are the best the Dominican Republic has to offer. Below, we try to answer some of the questions you may have before embarking on our Spinning program...

 

''I don't really want to join unless I know it's for me.''

No problem. Our membership structure allows you to pay for a single class. If you find that it is the workout for you, you can choose to buy a monthly membership. You will need to book your first class by going to Click Here to book a Spin Class to reserve a bike.

''What do I need to bring to the class?''

Equipment Needed: Other than the bike, which we provide, here's what you need for a safe, comfortable ride:

  • A stiff-soled shoe with good ventilation. (Running and aerobic shoes, which are soft-soled, may leave your feet numb by the end of the class.)
  • A towel.
  • A full water bottle, because you're definitely going to sweat. Our Spinning bikes are equipped with two water bottle cages so you can place your H2O within easy reach. A fresh water supply is available to refill your bottle in the studio.
  • Maybe a warm jacket to begin the class (YES, we are air-conditioned - it's a bit chilly at first!!)

''How will I know what to do in the class, if I have never done Spinning before?''

Our great instructors are always in the studio half an hour before the class. We always ask new spinners to come in for a little extra instruction before the class begins. Riding with an incorrect seat setting can lead to injury. Your instructor will help you set up your bike correctly so that your knee is slightly bent at the bottom of the pedal stroke. We will show you how to set the handlebars at a comfortable height... the fitter you are, the lower you can go with them. When you lean forward and place your hands on the bars, there should be a slight bend at your elbows.

Hot Tip: Arrive at least 20 minutes early for your first class so your instructor can answer any questions and help you with bike adjustments. Make sure you let her know about any injuries that you have so she can help you modify some of the moves. During class, be sure to let your instructor know if you are having trouble with the resistance knob or the general technique. If the class is too intense, just pedal more slowly or take the tension down.

''What will Spinning do for me?''

The great thing about Spinning is that you ride at your own pace. You are the only one in control of the 'resistance' on the bike. For most people, it will take up to 6 classes to be able to participate throughout the ride. At first, you will be encouraged to take additional rests and you will be instructed on breathing technique. As your level of fitness improves (normally rapidly), your ability and strength will enable you to begin to apply more and more 'resistance' to your bike. No one will know how hard you are pushing but you! We encourage the use of Heart Rate Monitors; your instructor can help you target an optimum heart rate, based on your age and fitness level and what you are looking to achieve. Dietary/fitness information will be available within the Studio to help you if weightloss and toning are your goal. Our members lose an average of 10lbs with Spinning and some have reported a weightloss in excess of 30 lbs!!

''I know I have to do something about my fitness level, but it's so hard to find the motivation to take the first step.''

Trust me, here at the Spinning Studio we can make that first step a very pleasant experience. We are a friendly and motivated bunch and in a group ride, you will be pulled along by the 'team' spirit that exists within the class. You will find an information board in the studio next to the instructor that gives the finer detail of the class - you will be encouraged and motivated at each stage of the class and when it is all over, you will have an exhilarating feeling with a sense of real achievement which will stay with you. Just knowing that you have taken the step toward greater fitness and /or weightloss affects every part of your daily life and sense of well-being.
