Manchester prepares for LA’s latest fitness craze that has The Beckhams in a spin!

Indoor cycling is set to hit the city centre...

The Spin Factor is coming to Manchester! Over 60 bikes are wheeling into town creating Europe’s largest Spinning facility, adjacent to Spinningfields – where else!

‘no memberships or contracts…
the first of its kind in Manchester.’

Following the successful launch of Pro Spin in Ashley, near Manchester Airport, indoor cycling is set to hit the city centre on Monday 18th May.

The concept is simple, PAYG so no memberships or contracts, book on a easy-to-use app at a time that suits you and step into the world of Spinning – Manchester style.

The setting is Mancunian urban: think dark training spaces with stage lighting powered by studio beats. More than 20 of the North West’s best coaches known as the Allstar Spinners will take more than 1,000 riders in over 70 classes a week, which start from just £4. Head trainer and leader of the Allstar Spinners Ross Sommers says: “This is Spinning on a scale that the UK has not seen before, and is just right for Manchester, going back to its music, sports and industrial roots.”

The facility also caters for hardcore cyclists with an exclusive Wattbike studio, the first of its kind in Manchester. A 45-minute session equates to 90 minutes of road training and with skilled elite coaches following the data output of each cyclist, this bespoke Spin programme is like no other.

Spinning has made headlines worldwide thanks to the daily tweets and Instagram posts from huge celebrities such as The Beckhams, Lady Gaga and Jennifer Aniston who can’t get enough of the feel-good workout which can burn up to 500 calories in 45 minutes. Sommers says of the benefits of Spinning: “It’s an ideal way to get fit. It blasts an average of 10 calories per minute in a safe and fun way.”

Already charity riders and organisers are making a beeline to use the facility for fundraising events and news of these rides will be available from 4EVERMANCHESTER – the chosen charity partner.

The first 500 spinners to register on the Spin Factory website, or the App, will qualify for the special Opening Offer of Half Price Credits, when purchased before 18th May.
