English term or phrase: spinning class
Today Julie and I ditched the gym for a spinning class. All exercise classes are inclusive of membership costs at LivingWell, so they really are worth trying out. I had never tried spinning before so was curious as to what it would be like. When we got there, lots of people were already warming up on their bikes and the class instructor helped us to set ours up. There were a real variety of people in the class, from people who looked like ‘pros’ to what seemed to be beginners, like me.

  -> Wenn sie das Fahrrad wenigstens an einen Generator anschließen würden und man den Strom dann mit nach Hause nehmen dürfte, würde ich da ja noch irgendeinen Sinn drin sehen...

agree  Christian: Leider stimmt es, dass man jetzt auch schon in Deutschland "Spinning" sagt - die spinnen doch alle! ;-) Es geht wirklich bergab mit der deutschen Sprache!

agree  BirgitBerlin: Spinning. Alle sprechen vom "Spinning" - aber es ist wirklich superschnell, nicht das normale "Trimm-Dich-Fahrrad". Eher wie Rennrad fahren.

agree  Cetacea: Soviel ich weiss wird bei Spinning-Rädern aber durch spezielle bewegliche Stab-Griffe auch die Armmuskulatur trainiert.
