Ughhh, I just did my first spinning class today..... I thought I was going to die lol. (and it was a beginner class). List the things that were numb.....feet.....butt.....other waist areas....hands. I completed it 45min constantly spinning. I found that I was to unstable to stand in the pedals and pump so I had to do that part sitting. Thank god the class is only once a week :innocent: -cheers
