“We are thrilled to be able to offer this tremendous aerobics activity,” says Surf City Parks & Recreation Director Kristie Grubb. “We have had many requests for Spinning classes and I am excited that we will finally be able to offer them.”


Instructor Linda Carlsen will immediately integrate indoor cycling into her 6 am boot camp on Tuesdays and Thursday morning and on will rename it Cycling/Boot Camp when the next 8-week session renews on March 12. She will also teach a Monday 8:30 am cycle class in conjunction with a strength and conditioning component.


Instructor Leigh Powell, who recently attended a comprehensive Spinning Orientation, will teach Tuesday and Thursday classes at 5:30 pm and a Friday 6:00 pm session as the Community Center formally extends its hours to 8 pm on Fridays. She will kick off the regular Spinning schedule this Friday night, March 1.


Athletics Supervisor Steve Unger is an experienced Spinning Instructor and will initially teach the Wednesday 8:30 am class. He will also offer Spin/Yoga on a special event basis. As a special bonus, he will offer a free bonus class on Wednesday, February 27 at 8:30 am.


The cost for any cycle class on or after March 1 is only $5 to Community Center Members; visitors also pay an additional $5 fee.
