The following was submitted by the JCC of the North Shore:
The JCC of the North Shore is proud to announce that it is an official Mad Dogg Spinning facility, offering more than a dozen free Spinning classes every week.
Mad Dogg Athletics invented Spinning more than 20 years ago and is the standard for indoor cycling worldwide. All JCC Spinning instructors are Mad Dogg certified, which means they’re trained in the best, most cutting-edge Spinning techniques.
“Spinning burns a ton of calories with no impact, which makes it a fun, effective and safe way to work out,” said JCC Group Exercise Manager Maria Calla. “It’s one of our most popular classes. There’s great camaraderie in Spinning. We know your name, we know what music you like, we work with you, we keep you motivated. And we have the absolute best, most experienced trainers.”
Trainers like Fanny Danesh [pictured], a former ballerina who suffered debilitating back pain and discovered Spinning about 20 years ago. She is now a Star Level 3 instructor (the highest level).
“Spinning is a great cardio workout because you strengthen your cardiovascular system, increase your fitness level, burn a lot of calories and strengthen your immune system..... safely and efficiently,” said Danesh.
At the JCC, Spining instructors are more like coaches, who teach you about heart rate training and form. They support you throughout the ride.
“I love Spinning at the JCC,” said Jane Hooper of Marblehead. “I learn a lot about what my body can accomplish. I always walk out of Spinning feeling better about myself.”
