Colder weather has driven me back to the YMCA for working out, and so I did my first Spin class today. I have mixed feelings. I'm not sure I'll take another one or not. I didn't burn up many more calories than I would have on my own and the music was LOUD and not my style (including 2 rap songs ). I didn't like the "push-ups" on the handlebars either. So, will have to think about if I'll go back for another class or not.
Is this type of stuff normal for spin classes? (Push-ups on the handlebars, standing pedaling for up to 4 minutes, grabbing the adjustment knob on the front of the bike and pedaling like that, etc.)
