How Many Calories Does Spinning Burn?
The number of calories you’ll burn during your spin session will depend on a number of factors such as:
- How long your class is
- How much you weigh
- The intensity at which you exercise
For example here’s the calorie burn for a person of 150 lbs at an average intensity based on different class times
- 20 minutes : 103
- 30 minutes : 206
- 45 minutes : 462
- 50 minutes : 514
- 1 hour : 617
If a 200 lb person attended the same classes but exercised at a higher intensity the calorie burn could look like this:
- 20 minutes : 325
- 30 minutes : 488
- 45 minutes : 732
- 50 minutes : 814
- 1 hour : 976
Calories Burned Spinning Versus Running

Spinning at an average intensity is roughly equivilant to running for the same amount of time at 5mph
Spinning at high intensity will burn around the same amount of calories as running for the same amount of time at 6mph
Calories Burned Spinning Versus Elliptical
