Riding a stationary bike at the gym isn't what it use to be. Indoor cycling, now known as spinning, began as a training method for racers and soon became a global trend that just keeps speeding up. Unlike other aerobic classes, spinning is easy to follow for any age and any fitness level, but anyone can burn 400 to 600 calories in a 40-minute workout. If you're looking for a calorie-burning, high-energy workout DFW's best spin studios have you covered.
