One of the many great things about the Spinning® program is that it appeals to individuals of all ages and fitness levels. Every participant controls the resistance on their own Spinner® bike, so each individual gets a customized workout that's right for them. Due to the diverse range of continuing education workshops, instructors can create a variety of unique fusion classes – including Spinning® and yoga, Spinning® and core training, and Strength, Hills and Power – that can easily be customized to suit the needs of your members.
The Spinning® program can be operated in almost any facility space. A closed room is recommended but not necessary. Each bike requires a 1,5 m (W) x 2 m (L) space.
The availability of Spinning® classes demonstrates a commitment to excellence in group exercise programming and is a strong selling point for potential members. Popular group exercise programs like Spinning® classes are also key drivers for member retention and word of mouth referrals. Some Official Spinning® Facilities choose to charge a per-class or supplemental membership fee, which can pay for the entire program in a short period of time.
Additionally, clubs can boost profits by taking advantage of our Wholesale Program, which entitles Official Spinning® Facility to wholesale pricing on our full line of Spinning® apparel and accessories. Our turn-key 8-Week Programs also enable clubs to generate profit while also providing members with an enhanced level of service and support.
Finally, our online Facility Finder and Class Pass tools help you attract new members by directing individuals who are interested in the Spinning® program to your club.
