Spin (30, 50) With a motivational instructor and energizing music you can tackle any climb, sprint, or endurance interval!  Join us in the Spin Studio as we ride to a variety of music genres and build on our cardiovascular endurance.  All levels welcome.
New Policy: In order to accommodate the high demand of Spin Classes, we will be implementing a new check-in system.  Our program is first-come-first serve, and for fairness, you must have a "Spin Card" to ride.  Orange Spin Cards will be handed out by the instructor to those present 15 minutes prior to class starting.  Cards will be limited to one card per person. Reserving bikes in advance is prohibited.
