    I love going to the gym and being active but spinning is one of the classes I avoid!! Haha! Been twice just to see if it was as bad the second time as I remember it being!!!

    You'll be fine though - I know a lot of people who absolutely love it, and go to classes regularly. Just keep remembering that it's really good for you :) And even if it is horrible and you hate it - it's only a little hour... that's nothing in the grand scheme of things!

    Spin is my fave!! Got a class tonight infact. Don't worry: yes it can be hard, but you choose where you set the resistance on your bike, so you can make it as hard or as easy as you like. You'll probably find allsorts attend the classes and not jus "fitties"Good luck!

    i went spinning for about a year every week. It is difficult at first but it gets easier the more you go. If i missed a week i found it harder to get back into. But think of all the calories :]

    Good luck! x

    i did spinning a few times and found the whole hour pure torture lol but i would go again as it is really good for you and really makes you sweat, just do your best and dont push yourself too hard

    Torture, decils exercise all of the above. I love the gym but having tried spinning a couple of times never again! I always feel like rubbish as i can't keep up, but it is tremendous exercise. be ready for killer thighs a couple of days later!

    Just work to you own level and you'll be fine ;)

    I love spin - hated it at first - it really is a class where all fitness levels can do the same class
