In case you weren't aware, the words Spin and Spinning are actually registered trademarks—so don't go using them all willy-nilly on the internet without expecting a cease and desist. Our sister site recently spoke with the LA-based company Mad Dogg Athletics, who trademarked the term 20 years ago. "In their world, the word is actually a precise type of indoor cycling and it cannot be used unless it's referring to them or their equipment." [Racked]
