To recognize the importance of developing an aerobic foundation and balancing the application of aerobic and anaerobic exercise, the Spinning® program divides workout formats into five categories called Energy Zones™, which are: Recovery, Endurance, Strength, Interval and Race Day. When you conduct workouts according to the Energy Zone guidelines, you offer the appropriate training session for the various exercise needs of your students. Interval training is a form of endurance training, and is essential to anyone interested in improving their fitness level, enhancing performance, or even changing their metabolism. The goal of training in the Interval Energy Zone is to develop the ability to recover quickly after work efforts. It also helps to develop speed, tempo, timing and rhythm.
