Fitness author Pamela Light joins me to discuss her article in the latest IDEA Fitness Journal – Crystal-Clear Cuing for Indoor Cycling. In it, Pamela encourages Instructors to: Be smart about the exertion scale you use to help participants get the best ride.
Excellent Instructors use a system to describe what they expect for performance, and it's usually a combination of what they've learned in certification courses and what they've gleaned through real-world experience. Indoor Cycling teachers often rely on numbers to convey effort. While this is a good idea at face value, there are many variations on a theme.
Listen below to Pamela expand on each of the seven component parts she feels are important to Crystal Clear Cuing!
