Abstract

Exercise induced rhabdomyolysis has previously been described as occurring in unfit adults or those attempting exhaustive exercise, but is rarely seen in previously fit adults undertaking moderate exercise. This case report describes what we believe to be the first reported case of exercise induced rhabdomyolysis due to the patient completing a 'spinning class' at her local gymnasium. The report also covers diagnosis and management of this condition.
