It is officially the season of change. The teams at your local YMCAs are making it even easier for you to improve your health and make lifestyle changes for good with brand new additions for members and non-members too.
Now an official Spinning Centre, YMCA St Annes on St Albans Rd have launched a brand new Spinning programme to complement the already extensive timetable of fitness and relaxation classes.
Led by certified YMCA Spinning instructors Lisa, Sean and Sue (pictured), the new classes are proving to be a massive ‘calorie burning’ hit among keen cyclists and fitness fanatics who simply love the exhilaration and energy of the ride.
Gareth Fegan, Manager of the centre said: “Our members have been asking us to introduce a spin programme for a while and it’s thanks to them and their membership fees that we’ve been able to invest in 20 brand new Spinner bikes.”
Spinning, created in 1991 by cyclist and entrepreneur John Baudhuin and the South African ultra-distance cyclist Johnny Goldberg, unites the innovation of indoor stationary bike technology with an inimitable cycling experience.
He added: “The first week of taster sessions really took off. Members are now booking their classes online and through our new mobile app and as always we welcome non-members to join the ride and just pay as you go.”
