How Many Calories Do You Burn Spinning?

Losing Weight boils down to creating a caloric deficit. One of the best activities for burning calories and improving your health is spinning.

Spinning is an activity that requires an individual to ride an exercise bike. Most of the time spinning is done in a group setting with an instructor leading the way. Spinning sessions are known for being very intense and grueling. The result is a massive amount of calories burned.

Most spinning classes are 60 minutes in length. The intensity rate varies, but overall is quite intense. According to most experts, a spinning class will yield a calorie burn of 130 every ten minutes. This number varies based on size, gender and current fitness level. This means a typical 60 minutes spinning class will burn 780 calories in one hour. That’s a huge amount of calories in one hour, making it one of the most efficient ways to burn a large sum of calories that leads to weight loss.

One pound of fat is equal to 3,500 calories. That means just 4.5 spinning classes will result in burning enough calories to lose one pound of fat. That should be great motivation to enroll in a spinning class right away. 

Anyone interested in participating in a spin class should check with their health care provider first. The classes are very intense. People should have at least an intermediate level of fitness.
