What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the words “spin class”? One is probably “loud music.” Another might be “choreographed pedaling.” A third may be “that thing my girlfriend/wife does on Saturday mornings.” And the most likely of all, your immediate response when you hear “spin class ” is a very abrupt “HELL NO.”

There’s a reason it’s been one of the most popular group workout classes in the world for years now, and there is an increasing number of guys clipping in.
