Spinning was developed in the late 1980s by the former pro cyclist Johnny Goldberg. Recovering from an injury, he wanted a bike for training indoors. Spinning has now become one of the most popular forms of group training around, and is practised in sports centres throughout the world.
Safety measures coronavirus:
- Adhere to the RIVM guidelines and the guidelines of the TU Delft.
- Keeping 1.5 metres distance is no longer a rule; however, it is still a sensible idea to allow each other plenty of room.
- Any symptoms: stay at home and get tested.
- Good hygiene remains important.
- If you take part in activities that fall under your X subscription, make sure you have your Campus Card or X card with you.
- Inside Cafe X and at some events, a COVID certificate is required.
You can take part in Spinning lessons almost every day. You cycle at different speeds, sitting and standing, with rousing music to keep you going. The changes in speed and posture have a positive effect on your heart, lungs, leg muscles and metabolism. You change the gears yourself, so you can make the workout as difficult (or easy) as you like. Spinning is the ideal quick fix if you want to improve your fitness level or burn some fat in a relatively short space of time.
