Good spinning classes?

spinning class bikes by Flickr USAG-HumphreysCaitlin emails:

I'm trying to find reliably good spin classes here in the Capital Region, and I find it's hard to search for lots of this stuff. Where do AOAers go to spin?

A straightforward question, and it's a good time of year for this sort of thing -- what with ongoing icy grip of winter making exercising outside less than enjoyable.

So... got a suggestion for Caitlin? Please share!

The spinning at the Steuben club is great!

If the Capital Region has a Soul Cycle, I think its Saratoga Cycle studio! They are incredibly motivating and actually want you to see great results. Plus, their facility is great and they are always adding new classes. Angela the owner is the best teacher to start taking classes with. Cannot say enough good things about the place! Book your classes on advance though because people are obsessed with the place and they book early!

There's Saratoga Cycling Studio (saratogacyclingstudio.com) near Broadway (same building as Chianti), and a place called The Revolution (http://myrevnow.com/) in Clifton Park.

The classes at Spin Revolution in Clifton Park are great - motivating environment, great music (#1 priority for me) and awesome instructors. Stopped going due to cost and distance from where I live.

I now go to the classes through Vent Fitness. Instructors and classes vary quite a bit but overall it's a good workout.

365 Fit in Delmar.

I really like Spin Revolution...I go to the one in Loudonville...Jen (Blueberry) is really awesome!

Best Fitness in Westgate Plaze has several weekly spin classes. All classes are included in the price of the membership ($15-20/month).

I second 365 Fit in Delmar! It's a new facility dedicated to spinning--the owners, Shannon and John, are seasoned tri-athletes and very knowledgable. They offer yoga classes, too.

There is a great studio in Colonie, right on Central Ave next to Annett's Bridal. They have unque bike that move! Great instructors, give an awesome workout! Book your class online! http://realryderinmotion.com/

As someone who HATED spinning before taking the class at Vent Fitness, I would DEFINITELY recommend it! I honestly thought I wouldn't be able to do it but the instructors are great and so energetic! Its definitely worth it!

Really dismayed that this post has nothing to do with yarn.

Definitely Total Ryder in Motion, 1524 Central Ave in Colonie. There is a great variety of classes offered, including virtual rydes and music video rydes. The bikes move offering a more dynamic and efficient work out burning up to 20% more calories than your traditional Spin Class!

I enjoyed the food trucks, outdoor space, and galleries, but the park was missing some music.
