First Class is November 1st.
Are you brand new to spinning or is this your first class at Bateman's Spin Shack? Either which way we are excited to see you and hope you enjoy your experience. Listed below are a few talking points and frequently asked questions and answers which will help you get started. Should you have any specific questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org
You can ride your bike or ours. Some of those who Spin at Bateman's don't even own a bike! Our spin bikes are from the finest manufacturers and we have multiple sizes suitable for all body types. We provide pedals including flat pedals for runnings shoes, SPD, Time, Look, Crank Bros. and Speedplay. The bike is attached to a Kinetics Road Machine Smart Trainer and we help you adjust the seat height. New for 2020 we have added a number of direct drive smart trainers.
Here are the types of spin classes we offer and the language we use to describe our workouts when we lead classes:
High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT): High speed workout with shorter, harder efforts help you ride faster
Endurance Spin (EN): Longer, less intense efforts help you ride longer
Skills & Core: Improve skills and efficiency on the bike & strengthen your core off the bike
Intervals: An intense type of workout excellent for building strength, where you go hard for a set distance, pedal easily to recover, and repeat your efforts a number of times.
Cadence: The average rate that you pedal when riding. Count the revolutions of one pedal over a set time or use a cadence meter.
Rate of Perceived Exertion: A scale of 1 to 10 - 1 being extremely easy, 10 being an effort you can hold no longer than 30 seconds.
Zones (1 to 5): A measure of intensity level as follows:
Zone 1: Very easy pace - used to recover between intervals so you can go hard again
Zone 2: Endurance pace - still rather easy, but just enough to raise your heart rate and break a sweat
Zone 3: A "Tempo" pace you can sustain for over an hour but requires a good effort
Zone 4: "Steady State" or "Threshold" - A pace that is difficult to hold for 30-60 minutes, but possible
Zone 5: Climbing pace, power intervals - A pace you can hold for 1-10 minutes
Zone 5+: All out sprints - Pushing hard on the pedals while keeping a fast spin - a pace you can hold for no longer than 30 seconds
Spin-ups: Short, high cadence intervals. The goal is raise your highest, optimal cadence by learning to pedal smoothly.
Single leg drills: Unclip one foot and rest it next to the bike so you are left to pedal with only one leg. With the bike in an easy gear turn the crank at a comfortable cadence. Focus on smoothing the transition at the 12 o'clock position of the pedal stroke.
Time Trial: An interval performed at a hard, steady pace.
Sprint: An all-out sharp burst of speed, normally no longer than 15 seconds.
Attack: An accelleration or surge of speed over a given period of time, normally 10-60 seconds.
Climb: A low cadence, high power interval, normally 30 seconds to 5 minutes.
Pull: A high intensity interval with attacks, normally 1-5 minutes.
