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.
We want to help Instructors, facilities and riders do and be more than they thought they could. Even if all that means is being inspired enough to get to a class, or get on a home bike when the couch is much more inviting.
From our humble beginnings in a Santa Monica garage, to a vibrant, deeply passionate global community... We are Spinning.
The original, authentic, exhilarating experience and lifestyle.
