Spin classes are a high-energy 45-minute indoor cycling class led by a motivating instructor and accompanied by the instructor’s unique playlist of powerful and energising music. Spin is challenging, fun and one of the best ways to improve cardiovascular fitness while burning lots of calories. Because Spin classes are low impact they are suitable for most people and our classes can accommodate all ability levels and age groups. Instructors will use the tempo and beat of the music to structure their classes to provide maximum variety and motivation and encourage participants to work hard but to their own level. Spin classes are a great form of cross training as they are non-weight bearing and provide a good workout while recovering from running, or other classes which have greater impact on the joints of the lower body. Elite PT’s spin classes are smaller groups (maximum of 14) where you get maximum trainer attention and encouragement. Best of all you have the backdrop of the ocean to distract you from the fact you are working out.
HIIT spin uses the recently popularised “high-intensity interval training (HIIT)” theory to provide a great workout in a short period of time for the time-poor. The class lasts 30 minutes maximum, and is broken down into high-intensity efforts from as little as 8-10 seconds up to two minutes, followed by a recovery period. While traditional spin classes are usually dictated by the instructor’s music, HIIT spin works to predetermined set intervals and rest periods to give you an intense workout in less time. Time flies in this class yet you will leave with a great cardio workout and having burnt a stack of calories.
