I go spinning at the Fitworks in Rocky River. I just joined last month. I think they offer like 3 classes a day... I'm not sure if you can just take the class or if you have to join the gym.

Have you ever been to Mallorca? I've never been and we're thinking about taking some out of town friends there this weekend.
