All right everyone, Thanksgiving is over and if you’re anything like me you’re probably still eating pie for breakfast. (I mean it has apples:) No worries, I’ve put together one of my new favorite spinning workouts that burns over 500 calories in only 45 mintues to help get you through all the holiday cookies, pies, festive drinks, chocolate….you get my point 🙂

Celebs like Kelly Ripa, Katie Holmes and Julia Roberts swear by spinning so it must be good!

You’ll tone up, burns tons of calories and relieve some much needed stress!
