Cycling has become a massive participation sport over the past decade, largely inspired by our great Olympic and Tour de France successes, but for many of you being out in the elements and at the mercy of the traffic has limited appeal. However, you may still want to experience the benefits of cycling – which is where a spinning class comes in!
Spinning is the fancy name for a special form of indoor cycling where a qualified instructor guides you through a series of intense workouts on an exercise bike. It’s a great form of exercise that’s fun and provides massive cardio benefits – you’ll be dripping with sweat and have wobbly legs by the end of the class! Here are our favourite spinning classes in Leeds for you to try out…
Pure Gym Leeds – 4 Cloth Hall St, Opposite Corn Exchange, LS1 2HD and The Merrion Centre, LS2 8BT
Pure Gym Leeds has two excellent value but high-quality gyms in Leeds city centre. Both venues have a vast range of classes including daily spin classes with friendly but hard-working instructors. Your class leader will guide you through a series of challenges from sprints and time trials to hill climbs and flats.
BPM Bike Lab – 4 Sovereign Pl, Leeds, LS1 4SP
Spin classes at BMP have been likened to clubbing on bikes! The combination of a light show and high-tempo music makes it much easier to forget how much hard work you’re doing as you get swept away by the atmosphere of the place. With a rolling £32 per month membership fee, you can take as many classes as you want and stop whenever it suits you.
The Gym – The Core, SU4 2 Level 3, The Core, The Headrow, Leeds LS1 6JD
Another gym in the city offering great value membership and intense but fun spin classes is the gym in The Core. With monthly membership from just £15.99 a month and individual spin classes with Chloe or Dan for just £3, this is a great place to get into spinning on a budget. As with all spin classes, you’ll be giving your core muscles and legs a real workout while building up your cardio fitness.
Living Well Health Clubs – Hilton Leeds City, Neville St, Leeds LS1 4BX
Located in the Hilton Leeds, Living Well offers a range of well-priced memberships that allow you to enjoy all the classes on offer. Of course, spinning is one of their most popular classes and the smaller size of the gym makes their spinning classes more relaxed and friendly. Well worth a look if you’re in the market for this kind of exercise!
