When I’m at IHRSA (which I was last week) I spend a bunch of time searching for the next “Big Thing” that I can share with you. What I found is a rather small and yet indispensable component of the bikes we ride – Keiser has developed a new Indoor Cycling pedal that looks awesome! As the major point of contact, Indoor Cycle pedals take a lot of abuse in

It’s that time of year again – IHRSA, the big fitness equipment show starts on Tuesday next week March 22nd and 23rd. This year the expo is in Orlando at the Orange County Convention Center. Sweet for me as it’s an easy 90 minute drive from my new home in Tampa 🙂 Last year all the buzz was centered on the new Stages SC3 – which was a total surprise
We’ve got another election year here in the USA. Based on what I see on my Facebook feed, I get the sense that there’s a few Instructors* out there that might be thinking, OH GOODY! I’ve got a captive group of people riding in front of me. My “peeps” see me as a leader. It’s my job to “educate” them so they vote properly! It’s my belief that there’s nothing

Fresh off the split between Mad Dogg Athletics and Core Health & Fitness – Star Trac, I received this press release promoting their new (?) lineup of Indoor Cycles… Core Health & Fitness To Introduce New Indoor Group Cycles VANCOUVER, WA. September 29, 2015 – Core Health & Fitness, an industry leader in the manufacture and distribution of commercial fitness products, announced today plans to introduce three new indoor cycling
I’d been hearing some rumors about Mad Dogg Athletics ending their long partnership* with manufacturer Star Trac. And then yesterday I received this email above, that frankly, looked to me like a “Going out of business!” fire sale. Well today it is official… Precor will be the new manufacturer of Spinner® Indoor Cycles. I traded some emails yesterday with Justin Kleber who’s the Product Manager for group cycling for Core
I just became aware of a new Indiegogo campaign for an innovative* method of pedaling a bicycle. Similar in functionality to a KrankCycle, the Caron Bicycle uses independent left/right crankarms that create 6 different pedalling movements. They have their crankset installed on a conventional IC in this video. Watch and then tell me if you feel these added exercises would improve your class… or is it just a solution in
In advance of recording her new Audio Profile Beat Down, Instructor Krista Leopold and I discussed her need to take a break from teaching. With a demanding tech job, along with being an active soccer mom, Krista explains why she decided to step away from regularly scheduled Spinning® classes in this episode of the Podcast. This ties in with my moving to Florida and having to give up my classes
Both of these questions have pretty much the same solution… Spotify is jumping in Apple’s face with this and I find it kind of funny 🙂 Turns out that if you’re paying your monthly Spotify subscription through iTunes, you are paying an extra $3.00 a month. Why? Because iTunes charges an extra 30% on top of recurrent subscriptions. Spotify is trying to raise awareness around the fact that it’s cheaper
Not sure how I feel about this new show shot in an Indoor Cycling studio in LA. I’ve had a few regulars mention it to me at the club. One told me that she’s excited to learn more about the sex and drama filled life I lead as an Instructor 🙂 Hollywood Cycle episode #1 is tonight on E! Entertainment Television You may have already seen the trailer Now you
