In other words, as the weather was turning, and they were getting ready to do some
Heart Zones Master Instructor Laura Sachs contributes our latest Audio PROfile. Laura recently published an article about heart rate training in the June IDEA Fitness Journal. Here’s an excerpt and you read the whole article here.

OBJECTIVE AND INTENSITY This profile will not only give your riders a taste of the
Leslie Mueller provides our latest Audio PROfile! Progressive Tour of Cadences – Beginner Class Objective and Intensity: This class educates your students about the effects of cadence and resistance and provides them with an opportunity to hone their form and technique while riding at a variety of leg speeds that are appropriate for beginners. It also provides a nice base building aerobic development, short interval workout that is pertinent for
We are seeing and hearing a new emphasis on studios offering Beginner or Introduction to Indoor Cycling classes. The idea is really very simple; provide new students with a safe and inviting class, teach them the basic techniques, let them develop their fitness and then graduate them to more intense classes when they are ready to be successful. Programs like Cycling Fusion have learned that these beginner class are most
This is the companion Audio PROfile for the Epic Planet DVD Epic Wine Country. You can use it as the basis for an exciting and entertaining class. It features a 20 minute endurance section where you can conduct a T1 Aerobic Threshold assessment and pre-fatigue everyone’s legs, during the flats, before heading into the hills. The 25 minute mark signals the start of 2 major climbs of 9:22 and 10:56 with
Out and Back Attack Audio PROfile Description This is a fun ride that simulates leading your class out to a specific point and then turning around and leading them back home. It gives you an opportunity to creatively engage your class with the types of terrain, possible obstacles, or sites that your riders might encounter along the way.

As promised here is Part 2 of Tom Scotto’s YOUR Numbers Audio Profile where Tom explains how you can help your students to begin to learn their Heart Rate and Power (watts) numbers. I would love to know how many of you are teaching on the Keiser M3 or New Schwinn AC Performance Indoor Cycles with power.

Here’s Tom Scotto with part #1 of YOUR Numbers, his first Audio PROfile as a part of our ICI/PRO team! Although the ultimate focus of this PROfile is on training with power, those of us without Keiser M3’s or the new Schwinn AC cycles will still benefit from Tom’s guidance. PROFILE DESCRIPTION Experience and “Start” to learn YOUR numbers. The ride provides an opportunity to explore the affects of cadence,
Tom Scotto joins us to explain how to coach Explosive Power efforts (sprints) in your Indoor Cycling class. Sprinting is one of the most poorly taught and misconstrued movements in indoor cycling. I’m sure you have all seen it – instructors cueing sprints with little to no coaching or form instruction; riders with their legs whirring around like a weed-wacker at 140+rpm with little to no resistance, bodies flailing, faces
