Start slow, work up.: Assuming you are in good health and have no major heart, lung, or other problems, spinning is a great exercise. Make sure you get the special bike pants with the padded crotch! Take a water bottle with you. Then, do what you can. Sit in the back if you are intimidated by the jocks. Set the resistance on the bike low as you get started. Listen to your body if you feel like you need to rest.
