The Scoop on Healthy Living: Spin Class at Home!

I hope you feel like sweating because I have a quick but intense workout for you! A while ago I discovered my new favorite cardio routine, which can be easily done at the gym if you don't have the equipment at home. 

 

What to bring:

Smart Phone
Headphones
WATER!!!
Small Towel

Part One: Interval Running and Jogging

I start off my workout on the treadmill, jogging at a brisk pace. I am not a runner, nor can I run fast (seriously ... it's sad), so my goal is to jog a mile in about ten minutes. I find that if I jog before Part Two I am able to work harder and more effectively. I like to include short bursts of running, and return to a jog or quick paced walk. The important part is to warm up your entire body!

 

Part Two: Spin Bike

Below I've embedded a 20 Minute Interval Training Spin Class by the Global Cycling Network. I'm a total beginner to cycling so I find this video plenty challenging. Also, as soon as it gets easy, you can simply turn up the resistance on your bike to make it harder. Therefore, I think it's the perfect 20 minute cardio workout to work into your day! Check it out below and give it a try next time you're at the gym!


If you're new to this like me, then check out the video below for an explanation on the effort levels.
