URI highlights Spinning classes at fitness center

The University of Rhode Island recently highlighted Spinning classes at its Anna Fascitelli Fitness and Wellness Center, profiling the journey of student worker Brittany Snizek from class participant to instructor.
“I started taking Spinning classes in my sophomore year, and I really got into it,” Snizek said in a news release. “I am a better person because of Spinning and I am happier and healthier. Taking classes here was fun because the instructors are great. Then I learned that the Fascitelli Center was looking for instructors and I decided to try it.”
URI highlighted the benefits of Spinning classes, which allow people to work out inside during the winter and at their own pace, and the path Snizek took to become an instructor. She underwent a five-week period learn how to lead a class and then an audition to earn her instructor position. She also had to complete a nine-hour course to earn a national certification and is certified in CPR.
“It’s fun and challenging,” Snizek said. “I have only received compliments, and some say it is the toughest class. Each week, I see the same people, which I hope means they are enjoying it.”
