Notable faces, powerful personalities, and celebrities of all ages, shapes, and sizes are spinning.  It's the low-impact workout that goes easy on your joints and hard on that waistline.  We got with the pros at the Cyclone Indoor Cycling Experience to get the details on this hot workout trend.

Co-Owner Sherry McCullouch says that cycling isn't always about working your lower body.  Each class lasts anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour and offers ways for you to work out your upper body as well.

Not only do you burn about 1200 calories a class, but with added resistance bands, you can really put those arms to work.

The special bike they have lets you tilt side to side, allowing you to really get in a full body workout.

Other pluses: you can spin in any weather, workout competitively surrounded by others, and there's no escaping a motivating coach right in front of you.
