Congratulations to ICI/PRO contributor Dennis Mellon who was recently hired by Stages Indoor Cycling as a Master Educator!

Interested in Dennis to come to your facility and train you in the effective use
I sent out an email last week, asking: Do you teach at a Big Box and a Boutique Studio? By “Big Box” I’m referring to one of the majors with multiple locations; 24 Hour, LA Fitness, Club Sports, Equinox, etc.. If so I’d like to talk to you and (if it makes sense) interview you for the Podcast… After sorting through over 300 responses (thanks to you all!) I followed
“YOU TAUGHT ME TO USE SPOTIFY!” “I think she’s talking to you John” was the response from Mad Dogg’s Tony Berlant, as we both watched a very excite women running toward us. Tony and I were enjoying an adult beverage during the reception at last fall’s MindBodyFitPro convention in LA when the women confirmed who exactly she was addressing: YOU (she’s now pointing at me) John Macgowan… YOU TAUGHT ME TO USE
ICI/PRO member John Appleby purchased a new VeloVie Vitesse 400 through our PRO/Purchase program. John emailed me today… John: Here is the photo of the bike. I like it more every day. I rode the 14 percent grade section of Beaver Creek (11 percent average over 2 plus miles) last week. This is the same road the pro riders in the USA Pro Challenge will ride on the 4th stage on August 22nd.
Larry “Link” Russell will be representing ICI/PRO and presenting at SCW’s Boston MANIA on Saturday 11/10 and Sunday 11/11. I need to thank Sara Kooperman with SCW Fitness for extending this opportunity for ICI/PRO to partner with her MANIA conventions. She recognises that we have some very talented people involved here at ICI/PRO and it was with great pleasure that I could recommend Link as a presenter 🙂 Saturday 4-5:30pm ICI/PRO Class
I’m a very “random” person – just ask anyone who know’s me – in that I’m not one for long term planning. That’s why I so enjoy operating ICI/PRO… when I discover or hear something (or someone) that sounds like it would be of interest to you, I post about it or try to schedule an interview. I find not knowing what tomorrow will bring very invigorating. Stressful at times to be sure!
Kim Moody was our 4th place winner with her “The Gate” – Halloween Mixed Ride profile. Because Kim’s profile would be more appropriate later this Fall, I’ve decided to save it until them. I’m also going to ask her if we can record it so everyone can hear her presentation 🙂 But I still wanted you to know who she is, so I’m publishing her bio for you now. Kim has been
Question from an ICI/PRO member: Hey John & Amy, I have an audition coming up with LIFETIME for cycling instructor. OK, I’m given 3 minutes to present my best ride. Crunch time. Any suggestions or advice on this? How exciting for you! Amy and I enjoy teaching at Life Time with their dedicated cycling studios, great sound systems, video projectors and fabulous bikes. Only three minutes, eh? OK, here’s a few suggestions,
It’s with great pleasure (and a bit of pride) that I get to announce ICI/PRO member and frequent contributor Doug Rusho has joined the Stages Indoor Cycling team as a Master Instructor! ICI/PRO members have enjoyed a number of Doug’s Audio PROfiles and he did a great job presenting at our last conference. Doug’s first official duties will be to assist his new boss, Cameron Chinatti on Saturday January 14th,
Would you be intimidated if you had to fill in for Master Instructor Tom Scotto? I know I would. Meet Spinning Instructor and ICI/PRO member Kay Ruane. Kay fills in for Tom on a regular basis at the Wellbridge club where they both teach. Those of us with a bunch of experience, who were given the chance to teach for Tom, may have some butterflies at the beginning… but our Instructor
Have I told you how proud I am of all the ICI/PRO members who have taken the leap and started their own Indoor Cycling Studios? Well I am, and it’s so awesome to see when the local media recognizes them! Kathy Ehrlich-Scheffer opened Cycledelic Indoor Cycling Studio this fall in Rochester, NY. Her studio features FreeMotion s11.9 indoor cycles with power. I see that Kathy is offering Winter Training from Cycling Fusion, which
