Spin classes have become increasingly popular, but this one takes your workout to the next level with a real time leaderboard and comprehensive stats to help you track your improvement over time. Don’t let that scare you though, one of the best things about spin is you can go at your own pace and set your own resistance. Plus, the club-like lighting and high-energy music will keep you distracted through all that pedaling.
