You can burn many calories in a spin class if your workout is intense and long. Most spin classes are between 45 minutes and an hour and offer intensity and endurance building routines. Spinning, on average, burns between 400-500 calories in a 45 minute class. Most people agree that you burn about 10 calories for every minute spent on the bike while spinning.
The actual number of calories burned may depend on a wide variety of factors including how fast you go on the bike, how long, your fitness level, age, gender, weight and even your heart rate. The better in shape you are, the more calories you are likely to burn. If you are overweight, you will not burn as many calories as someone who is in shape.
Spinning has become a very popular class offered in most gyms. People enjoy the classes because they provide an intense workout that lasts a specific amount of time. The accountability provided in a class is perfect for weight loss and burning calories, because you are less likely to quit during the middle of a session and more likely to finish the program you started. Social pressure is ideal for weight loss, especially in this environment. Plan on burning a lot of calories in a spin class if you keep your speed up and your heart rate engaged in the program.
