Spin class?

Options
I'm thinking of joining a spin class to mix up my routine a bit. For those of you who are already in one, what are your opinions? More specifically, how did it help your weight loss?

    I agree,you can burn upto around 1000 calories per hour, and its killer, but really fun.

    I LOVEEE my spin class! As others have said, it is tough, but I look forward to it! After 4 classes, I was able to do everything right along with the instructor without having to slow down. Now, I am actually working with my schedule to get a second spin class mid-week. :happy:

    I did one once and it was great, but my tush hurt really bad afterwards! I need to buy some padded shorts so I can try again.

    I LOVE spin! I do 2-3 classes a week and it is by far the best way to tone your bum! You seat might be a bit sore after the first class but you get used to it and I don't even notice it anymore. You gotta try it! You burn an average of 500 cals per 50 min class, but you have to continue to challenge yourself by increasing the resistance (once you are used to the class) because people adapt really quickly to spin.
