anyone done it or doing it ? I am obese (to put it mildly but relatively fit) quite fancy doing it as I understand you can set your own pace but am slightly worried that I will...ahem...find the seat rather uncomfortable to sit on
get padded cycling shorts if you think you will find the seat harsh on your backside Or padded cycling pants to wear under your gym bottoms. Make sure they are a snug fit - otherwise they can make you sore.
Enjoy spinning is really good, make sure your bike is set up correctly as well so you don't bugger up your knees - seat should be hip height and seat should be elbow to tip of fingers away from your handlebars
Follow the advice re padded shorts, bike set up etc. and take it at your pace....dont watch/compete with anyone else in the class! not at first any way ;) I dont find the saddles comfortable as my own bike, brooks leather, but find a padded short or tight fitting legging works for me. seams or loose clothing can chafe! try it and let us know how you get on..
Spinning rocks! But it'll kill you, no matter who you are, so be ready for that. Deffo get some cycling shorts if you can, even unpadded ones will be better than nothing as baggy shorts will end up tangling and vanishing up somewhere. The instructor shoudlhelp you set up the bike. You'll sweat like a (insert non-PC gag here) so take a towel and a water bottle. Do it!
