About YS Spinning

Spinning classes are group cycling classes that offer a non-impact workout to effectively build cardiovascular strength and endurance. From the instructors to the music to the constant change in lighting, our spin classes never seem to have a dull moment. You'll get a full body workout while you're lost in the moment to killer music! Depending on your intensity, you can burn anywhere from 400-600 calories in our interval based classes designed to help you reach your fitness goals!

Denise Rabi Tuesday: 6:00pm Okemos Happy Place: Being with my daughters laughing at something stupid, per our norm. Wildest Dream: To travel wherever I want, whenever I want! Proudest Moment: When my oldest daughter graduated college. Teaching Style:  I love to play a lot of Latin rhythm and beat! My class is straight-up cycling, which involves nothing but pedaling (no upper body movements). We will experience climbing hills, rolling hills, sprint intervals, even-level rides and jumps (with a cool-down at the very end). I guarantee a great cardio workout while riding to some fabulous, upbeat music that I’ve listened to all of my life, having grown up in Miami, FL! I have been a certified Schwinn Fitness Indoor Group Cycling Instructor since summer, 2010. I love to be able to put you through a workout where you know that you’ve left your all on that saddle, at the very end. I once read that “Success is not what you accomplish in your life, but what you inspire others to do!” It is my wish to inspire you to reach your cardio goals during your time with me at Yoga State!

Erin Beck Thursday: 5:30pm Okemos Happy Place: Anywhere on the water. Wildest Dream: Winning the lottery and living on Big Cayman. Proudest Moment: When I took the first step to becoming healthy and becoming a cycling teacher! Teaching Style:  I fell hard and fast for spinning; I was a student for only a year when I decided to take the leap and become a teacher! I enjoy a fast, high-intensity spin. I like to mix in some upper body to work out those arms just as much as the legs. I play a variety of old and new school music including some classics. I love spinning to electric music such as Skrillex, Deadmau5, Calvin Harris, and David Guetta along with some new age of DNCE, Sia, and Kiiara. If you have never taken a spinning class before, I encourage you to try my class and come sweat it out with me!
