How many calories will I burn in spin class?

An hour of spin class, due to its high level of intensity, will burn close to 775 calories per hour.

The amount of calories burned in a spin class can vary depending on how much effort you put into it and the levels of intensity during class. On average an individual can burn between 500 - 800 calories per hour. The amount of calories you burn can also vary based on your body weight.
