The ultimate UK spinning classes | Women’s Health

If you've somehow avoided a spin class, where have you been? Spinning has taken the UK by storm and with new gyms and classes popping up all over the place we thought we'd help you head to best one.

NEW PICK: CORE COLLECTIVE

WHAT MAKES IT SPECIAL: With no sign up fee and no contract, this is the the revolutionary way of spinning without throwing your cash away. Their pumped up Accelerate class means you can personalize your workout to pay per class and avoid being caught out by hidden fees. Where do we sign up?

WHAT MAKES IT SPECIAL: You can’t beat a classic which is why at Women's Health we love the Virgin Active gym for our weekly spin class. From their RPM Cycle class, created by the Les Mills crew or their Group Cycle sessions, their gyms are everywhere in the UK for a reason.

WHERE: All over the UK.

BEST INSTRUCTOR: We’ve only heard good things about PT Melvin Brewley who takes you on the ride of your life.

BLOGGER’S PICK: PUREGYM

Sarah Harradine, Blogger at THAT SQUAT BOT:

WHAT MAKES IT SPECIAL: 'During the first track of spinning a class always seems impossibly long, but as soon as you've done a few sprints and hill climbs you don't want it to end. It's different as somehow all the bike wheels spinning together becomes meditative, and although you may not speak to the other spinners it really feels like a team effort and like you've achieved something at the end.'

WHERE: Manchester.

BEST INSTRUCTOR: 'My favourite teacher remains my PT Denton. He gives 100% every time, always brings something new and knows how to get a class fired up.'
