March 30, 2017
After just 15 minutes in a spin class, Lauren Peterson began feeling nauseous and almost passed out. Though she initially brushed off the symptoms as the result of a particularly intense session, two days later, her urine had turned dark and her thigh muscles had become swollen and painful. "Spinning is great exercise," Maureen Brogan, MD, the lead author of a report detailing Peterson's case, told TODAY. "But people should be aware they need to take it slow in the beginning. There should be some guidelines."
