We have a 4 hour cancellation policy. Please cancel within the 4 hours to avoid paying for a class you did not attend. There is a three-strike policy for Monthly and Yearly unlimited package holders.

What is the minimum age for Spinning Class participant?

Each official Spinning facility will have its own policy on age requirements, but here is some information that should be useful in making decisions about age-appropriateness.
Size: Proper bike fit is very important for injury prevention. The rider must have the proper seat height and fore/arm adjustments. Generally speaking, Spinner bikes are manufactured for riders who are least 4’11’. But this is not an exact minimum height because leg and torso are the determining factors.

Age/Maturity: If kids are going to ride, they need to be mature and responsible and follow the safety rules. If can sometimes be tempting for kids to pedal as fast as they can, and unsafe. Because the rider is a fixed gear bike, the weight of the flywheel can turn the speed very high with a lot of momentum if there’s not enough resistance.

Youth fitness guidelines for resistance training: Pre-pubescent children should not “climb on the Spinner bike with a lot of heavy resistance on the flywheel. Youth fitness guidelines advise against resistance training for kids whose growth plates are still forming.
