About Spinning® Nation
On April 26, 2014 Spinning®, the creator of the indoor cycling category and the global leader in programming, education and equipment, will be hosting the sixth Spinning Nation event to raise money for Go Red For Women® to bring awareness to heart disease. Participating Official Spinning Facilities, nationwide, will host a two-hour Spinning class. Riders from all over the country will collect donations from friends and family to sponsor their ride for the event day. 100 percent of donations will benefit the American Heart Association's Go Red For Women movement.
Riders can register online to ride at any participating Spinning Nation facility. There is a $50 registration fee per rider, per hour that will go toward the rider's Spinning Nation donation total. There is no fee for facilities to register as a Spinning Nation location.
In 1991, in a Santa Monica California garage, entrepreneur/cyclist John Baudhuin and South African ultra-distance cyclist Johnny Goldberg, known as Johnny G, created Spinning® and introduced the world to indoor cycling.
Spinning brought together innovative, authentic indoor Spinner® bikes, deep cycling experience, a challenging and exhilarating workout, and knowledgeable, engaging instructors – elements that are still at the core of Spinning today.
Our purpose is to empower you, whether you’re a new or experienced indoor rider, an instructor, or a facility operator. We live to provide the best indoor cycling experience on the planet. We offer a huge array of workout rides and journeys, from a dance party in Ibiza to a climb through the Alps in the Tour de France. In a Spinning class, you’ll find hard core athletes brimming with the latest technology riding next to grandmothers brimming with soul, all getting what they want to get out of the ride. Whether that’s getting into shape or getting ready to race, tuning in or zoning out, or just enjoying the inspiration, fun and camaraderie of a group ride.
And Spinning is much more than a class. We design and build the world’s best performing indoor bikes and accessories. We develop and evolve the world’s most respected indoor cycling certification and continuing education programs. And we’re a global community of 25 languages, 80 countries, 150+ Master Instructors, 30,000 licensed facilities, thousands of active Instructors in our SPIN Network, countless regional events and group rides every year, and millions of riders around the globe.
Our instructors take riders into their hearts, not just their classes. And we’re honored and inspired to be part of your stories.
