Spin Class to Go
June 29, 2012 10:27 AM   Subscribe

So, I've been really loving spin class lately. However, the timings at my gym are such that I can only go 2 times a week. I'd like to spin 3-4x a week. Can you recommend any audio workouts (podcasts, etc) that simulate a spin class experience?

Basically, the instructor of the class is just playing music and then leading everyone through a workout where we change the resistance on the bike, and sometimes hover, sometimes stand, sometimes sit. The instructors at my gym are pretty good at making "sets" with intervals working on strength, speed, and recovery. I think having an audio "instructor" do the same thing and using the exercise bike at the gym should be a good substitute for when I can't make the class. I've searched a bit online, but the podcasts/audio I've found are more for cycling and not spin workouts. Can you do better?

Also, I have an Android phone, so if there is an app for spinning that you know is good, that would be cool, too.

There aren't many, and the site hasn't been updated for quite a while, but when I was looking for something like this, I liked Trihardist Podcasts.

The Sufferfest. Cycling workouts intended for indoors are just like spinning: intervals for strength and speed, so don't be put off by the fact that they're "cycling specific". The Sufferfest is particularly well-regarded.
