I notice one of the exercise options is NOT spinning. So bicycling is the closest option. Would you consider a spin class MODERATE cycling on average? Thanks!

Most of the spinning classes I've seen are pretty intense! Do the exercise bikes in your class have any kind of speedometer on them that shows how fast you're cycling? If so, you could use that speed and enter it here as "bicycling" since the slow/moderate/fast intensity is based on the mph that you've been bicycling. If nothing else, you could probably ask the instructor about how fast you're cycling on average during the class.

Good luck and keep spinning!

I definitely would count it as higher than moderate. Every spin class I've ever been to has been intense from start to finish!

As a spin teacher, I say spin burns lots more calories than cycling....so add them calories..

Squats Stink!
You all sit down on a daily basis? And get up? That's a squat with a break in the middle! Does sitting down or getting up hurt?
