Explanation of Focus

My goal is to share marketing strategies guaranteed to spice up your class and rejuvenate your gym’s indoor cycling program. Learn how a few simple acts of hospitality, some much-needed laughter and a savvy playlist can ignite a wildfire of enthusiasm and make your class the hottest ticket in town. You won’t find any technical jargon in my column, but you will gain insight into the subliminal elements that keep ‘em coming back for more.

As a passionate instructor for over a decade, I’ll share secrets that amped my ailing Spinning class from 10 to 55 in less than two years. Check out Podcast #52 and listen to me describe  “Six Ways to Grow Your Cycling Class.”

I’d love to hear YOUR stories of success!
