With the music cranked up high and lights turned down low, SPINCO's immersive indoor cycling classes feel more like a dance party on a bike than a gruelling workout – though you'll definitely be sweating by the end. Rhythmic spinning classes require you to pedal on the beat alongside fellow riders who are clipped into state-of-the-art stationary bikes while moving in unison to heart-pumping music. Throughout the 50-minute class, enthusiastic instructors are there to guide you through speedy sprints, intense hill climbs, push-ups, oblique work and weight training to give you a full-body workout that'll leave you feeling strong and energized.
While the workouts are inspired by classic ballet choreography at this Yonge and Eglinton barre studio, you won't need to show up in a tutu or pointe shoes to feel the burn. Blending dance-inspired movements with Pilates and cardio training, the signature MixedBarre class at Barreworks takes would-be ballerinas through a fast-paced workout utilizing the ballet barre, weighted balls, resistance bands and core-focused mat work. The studio also offers speciality classes that target specific areas, including bAAAre – tailored to sculpt your Arms, Abs and Ass – and DripBarre, which cranks up the heat with high-intensity cardio intervals that'll get you nice and sweaty while boosting your metabolism.
