Hey McGill Science! Are you ready to get your sweat on?
The McGill Biochemistry Undergraduate Society (BUGS) and Spin Énergie have partnered together on Science Spin. Science Spin is a 45 minute cardio-party on a bike made for McGill Science students!
The instructor will lead you through a killer playlist complete with choreography and weights, all while spinning on a bike! The class is in a dark room and is designed to be fun for newbies and workout junkies alike.
The event will take place on Saturday, October 26th at 3:30pm. Tickets cost $15 (normally a spin class is $22) and can be purchased online via Eventbrite or with cash at the BUGS office (McMED 510).
