Workout Wednesday: Accelerate At Core Collective

As hard (or easy) as you make it with a great soundtrack to boot

Most Popular

Spinning is not an uncommon fitness class but when the bike that you're using tells you exactly what percentage resistance you're doing, the Watts, RPM, calories burnt, as well as time and distance, you know you've found a spinning class that's special.

Certainly, I want to know how hard I've worked, and I think it's very clever to be able to tailor the resistance to what suits you, rather than the blind wheel-winding that I find common of other spinning bikes. Plus, I don't know about you, but I'm not the hugest fan of being clicked into bikes using those clip-in shoes they normally have, so being able to just rock up in my trainers is exactly the kind of hassle free workout class that I'm after.

I'm at Core Collective, the new luxury fitness boutique in the heart of Kensington – spacious and swanky I feel like I've walked into a spa – and I've already clocked the café for post workout treats. The spinning studio is dark – phew – with modern lights and is compact, so not intimidating at all. The class is a perfect 45 minutes long and can be as hard or as easy as you make it, with a great soundtrack to boot. And after working up a sweat, the changing rooms are glorious - the showers are spacious and have everything you need, plus the towels are like a soft bear hug. They even have thick, Core Collective plastic bags available for your sweaty (just me?) workout kit, which I thought was a nice touch.

What you need: A bottle of water
Difficulty rating: 4/5 – though you can make the class as hard or as easy as you like with the clear resistance control on the bike
Location: Core Collective, Kensington
