Spin classes are a great way to work out, meet new people and enjoy all of the body-healthy benefits of physical activity while doing something that you’ve probably done since childhood: bicycling. The only difference is that in a spin class, your bike and yourself are both stationary. This low-impact form exercise helps Ottawa residents to get their fittest body ever in a fun and social way.
