Here are pictures from IHRSA of the new Spinner NXT and the all new Spinner Blade. I’m going to guess that Spinning still sees a large market for conventional Indoor Cycles that would cause them to redesign the NXT. 4/15 update: I had a very informative discussion with Josh Taylor today about all the changes they have made to the NXT. I hope to have a separate post about it early next week. The only significant change I
Not much of anything. Really. There’s no changes that I can see that would be of any value to you, as a Fitness Instructor. The preferences section is exactly the same – OK, not exactly; they’ve removed the option for gap-less playback, but kept the cross-fade. Nothing else to see here. Move along…
Fitness equipment replacement parts distributor Sportsmith is offering a 15% discount for ICI/PRO readers and listeners. They have most everything you’ll need to tune up all your bikes and have them ready for the fall (is it really coming so soon?) rush of new participants. I’ve worked with Sportsmith for years – they distribute my Red Pedal Tool for easily and safely removing the fitness shoe cages from the Schwinn
All of us at ICI/PRO are very excited about our very first conference we are hosting October 8th – 10th in Boston, MA. We have been receiving a number of questions and felt it would be helpful to put together a FAQ for our community of Indoor Cycling Instructors. Number one question we get…Do I need to be an ICI/PRO member to attend? No, this conference is open to anyone
I don’t own an iPad (my birthday is soon Amy – in case you need an idea) but if I did I would want to use it in my class now that Spotify has an official iPad App! The biggest reason I would prefer it, over my iPhone, is the font size. The “Time Remaining” is nearly unreadable by me. My class is frequently laughing at me as I sit
We are less than 60 days from our ride around the Cabot Trail. The group has been very active – increasing distance to 55 km for morning rides, grades to 7+% for hill repeats and making lots of connections between the indoor and outdoor efforts in my classes. We closed the opportunity to join us last week so that we’d have a consistent group with whom to train over the
It is difficult to explain how iconic the Cabot Trail is to Nova Scotians and even Canadians. With six significant climbs (some of which are 13-17% for long stretches) it is notorious and glorious at the same time. The scenery is unparalleled and there is a mystique about the Highlands which captures everyone’s imagination. The trail has been labeled “one of the greatest bike routes on earth” by Bicycling Magazine.
I promised myself I would update this site’s theme. It may look like a “work in progress” for a few days while I fight through making all the changes.
This is awesome! When I started this I wasn’t sure if there would be any Spinning Instructors who would actually want to listen. I know 1000 downloads isn’t that many, but considering that it’s only been a month and Podcast #5 was posted yesterday, it is a milestone for me. I’m planning on on some very special guests in the near future so keep subscribing and listening. If you have
