While the term "spinning" may bring to mind Ed Sullivan–introduced plate-balancing variety acts of yesteryear, Club Champions' "spinning" classes ($15 per class) refer to stationary-exercise-bike classes. On "spinning" bikes, you and a gaggle of grounded gear grinders will be led by a certified instructor through 45 minutes of cycling. Spinning class gets the heart racing and helps tone both inner- and outer-thigh muscles. Each session can burn up to 450 calories, effectively wiping out that chop suey you had for breakfast. And with a flock of other fitnessers in the class with you, you'll find no shortage of support as you pretend you're pedaling up the snow-smothered face of Mount Everest.
