When we first heard about indoor cycling (aka spin class), truth to be told, we didn’t think it was all that. Just the mere thought of cycling for 45 to 60 minutes straight on the bike seems unexciting as compared to other workout regimes. We imagined that we would be like those cyclists you see on the road, but minus the view since these are indoors. Doesn’t sound that appealing right?

But indoor cycling is actually the complete opposite of what’s written above. We’ve experienced it first hand and are completely blown away. In that one session, you get to do rhythmic moves to go along with heavy pumping music and you’ll already be sweating even just 5 minutes in. Thought you’ll be sitting down the entire time? Time goes by so quickly that you won’t even realise that you have probably lost about 500 calories just like that.

Intrigued? Time to sign up. Here’s where you get to go for a good spin session in KL.

Ministry of Burn

Ministry of Burn wants you to burn it all with its beginner to high-intensity workout sessions at its centres. It currently has two outlets, one in Damansara Heights and another at Bangsar South. Purchasing the packages allows you to choose between its ride or row classes, just in case you don’t find spinning that exciting.

Flycycle @ Flyproject

Flyproject, which you may know by now, is not just any fitness centre. It has created this environment for everyone of any levels and different fitness goals. Flycycle is one of them. Burn calories with climbs, sprints, weights, intervals, choreographed moves and combinations. You can choose to ride at Intermark or Verve, Mont Kiara.

Aloha Cycle Club

Aloha Cycle Club is one of the newer spin class centres to open in Mont Kiara. What’s interesting is not the fact that it has the basic three different levels of intensity classes but there’s also a Ride & HIIT class. It’s 20 minutes of ride, 15 minutes of HIIT and 10 minutes of stretch.

Firestation

Dave Nuku realised that there was a growing gap in the market for a premium service; a highly specialised fitness experience that is motivating, social and fun. Hence, Firestation is here to offer a number of workout sessions including ride and ride yoga.

Babel Fit

You may know Babel Fit as one of the most luxury independent boutique gyms in KL (you can find Dyson hairdryers in their locker room, just putting it out there), but do you know it has a huge variety of classes too? This includes yoga, cardio kickboxing, HIIT, dance and spin.
