With high energy, low impact routines set to pumping soundtracks that work your body all over and burn hundreds of cals, it’s no wonder people swear by spinning.

Psycle is one of the OGs of spinning.

Obvs your body gets put through its paces but the sessions are also designed to help boost your mood and give your mind a workout too. And if you’re a spin pro, you can take on the challenge of 60 and 90 minute rides.
