The Wellness Center at DeKalb Medical Offers Exciting Spin Classes
March 19, 2013
The Wellness Center at DeKalb Medical is excited to offer indoor cycling classes six days a week. Spinning, as it is commonly called, has increased in popularity in recent years because it offers a motivating workout adaptable to a person’s fitness level. Classes are lead by a professional who takes spinners through exercise routines on specially designed stationary bikes with the benefits being increased energy, cardiovascular fitness and lower body strength.
The Wellness Center’s one hour classes are offered Mondays at 6 a.m., Tuesdays at 5:30 p.m., Thursdays at 4:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m., Fridays at 6 a.m. and 4:15 p.m., Saturdays at 2:30 p.m., and Sundays at 11:30 a.m.
Thursday’s 4:30 p.m. class is titled “Ultimate Spin Challenge” and is recommended for spinners with experience or those who seek a faster and more intense workout.
Spinning is set at the user’s pace, but the cardiovascular benefits are greater as the speed and resistance increase. Calories burn off and fat melts away.
The Wellness Center invites all members of the community to take advantage of its one-week free pass to check out the new cardio equipment, free weights and weight machines, pool and locker rooms.
