We gotta admit – indoor cycling, aka spinning, is pretty daunting to the uninitiated. After all, you’re set in a dimly-lit room, surrounded by insanely loud and upbeat music while you exercise on a stationary bike.
But the workout class comes with plenty of health perks, especially if we’re talking about cardiovascular health. Not only is it said that an hour of spinning can burn about 500-800 kcals, the workout also helps to train endurance and strength. So saddle up people, here’s our guide to help you pick the best spin class in Singapore!
Absolute (Absolute Cycle)
Ever-popular, Thailand-hailing spin and pilates studio Absolute You is a great place for beginners to start spinning. First-timers and even those relatively new to the workout will be provided mandatory beginner classes (at no additional costs), so as to brief them on the exercises, how to catch the beats, and other spinning information like bike adjustments and more. They even have special themed rides inspired by the holidays, different genres of music, and specific artists. For now, keep a lookout for its latest ventures with Zouk as well as the reopening of their Peranakan Place branch.
Burn up to 800 calories at Aurora’s spin studios which are equipped with revolutionary surround sound and lighting systems. It is also the only studio in Singapore with two different rooms for you to ride. Just don your most comfortable activewear as footwear is provided; check out the fitness centre here – it even features a dual concept which allows them to offer more experiences to its spin patrons.
Like most beat-matching studios, CruCycle takes its music very seriously. They play an enjoyable mix of R&B, hip-hop, pop and more, to put you in the mood to ride it out. They’ve got a nice locker room situation too; find fluffy towels, shower essentials and even healthy snack choices available for purchase if you’re hungry before and after spinning. It recently partnered with Pure Group for spin classes at Pure Fitness’s Ngee Ann City’s branch.
Having recently relocated their spin studio to their new gym outlet at China Square Central, Ground Zero can now accommodate more bikers in the sparkling new space. You can enjoy a luxe, post-workout pamper too, as Ashley & Co shower products, Dyson hair dryers and a large vanity are all available for use.
Possibly the fastest-growing cycling studio in town, Popsicle Rhythmic Cycling (previously known as Cycle Beats) has got two well-furnished gym studios for locals to choose from. Ride with seasoned instructors at either branches; both offer seamless, experiential spinning sessions which will leave you feeling energised and accomplished.
If you’re up for a challenge, consider R10T’s indoor cycling classes which are jam packed with heart-pumping sprints and climbs alike. Sign up for the R1DE packs (minimum five sessions, valid for three months) via its R10T app.
Join the revolution at CBD’s Cecil Street for a spin experience unlike any other. Promising a party on a bike, Revolution provides a world-class sound system and an immersive fitness studio to deliver a high-energy workout class. Enjoy a workout at any time of the day as they offer both day and night classes. For 45mins, ride to explosive tunes with the pair of professional grade cycling shoes provided then hit the showers which are all within the spruce changing rooms complete with a full range of amenities.
