Short of provoking a sexual harassment suit, this maybe the best way to get your class excited about what you have in store for them. I’m grateful because my riders often take the time to leave comment cards at the club’s front desk after class and my group fitness directors continually share the feedback with me. One “positive” comment that has been consistent is that members feels that I “set
Let’s Try This Another Way After testing 14 different bikes, with 6 of them also being repeat tested at least twice, I was pretty disappointed to see the data I reported in our last blog. This was never meant to be just an academic exercise. This had pure practical motivation. I wanted to be able to do real and reasonable competition in class. I wanted to encourage more tantalizing trash
* n’at a “general extender” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pittsburgh_English) For those of you not well versed in the language of “Pittsburghese”, we use the phrase “n’at” for a variety of reasons, but in this case it means “along with some other stuff”. Consider this a “side-bar” to the story I’ve been building in this Evidence Based Cycling blog. John Macgowan wrote an article on incorporating the “grade of a climb” into your Indoor
You didn’t notice it getting dressed and it wasn’t there early in class, it just kind of snuck up on you. One minute you’re JRA (Just Riding Along) and the next you begin to catch little whiffs of an odor, not pleasant, that makes you appreciate your position up front and away from anyone else. What is that smell? Where is it coming from and how come I’m just noticing
SoulCycle doesn’t offer Indoor Cycling “classes” so much as they offer Indoor Cycling “productions” where the participants (if they choose) are part of the show. Not just as “extras” playing bit parts, but critically important actors and actresses in each SoulCycle performance. During these 45 minute scripted fitness events, the Instructor’s role is split between; Performer, Cheerleader, Coach and lastly as the Director – directing the participants in their parts of the production.
Now that I’m an official Stages Indoor Cycling Master Educator, I figured I needed to create an Audio Profile so you can hear how I teach one of my Power classes. My profile is “Racing Your FTP”. The goal is very simple; beat your FTP or “Threshold Check” numbers on every set. The ride will consist of two warm up songs, a “Threshold Check”, and three efforts of around 12,
Myth: Rider Setup / Bike Fit should be done before class. Common sense says that the best time to help someone with their bike setup would be before class. After all, this new student has just walked in and they have 45 – 60 minutes in the saddle ahead of them. So pre-class would be the best time, right? Well… no, it probably isn’t. And when you think about it for a few
By Team ICG® Master Trainer Jim Karanas and ICG® Marketing & Product Director Gary Warren Forward Motion Video was first produced for, and used in, Indoor Cycling classes in the form of DVDs. DVDs paved the way for production companies like Virtual Active to bring Hollywood-level filming to the fitness industry. We would never detract from the contribution these DVDs and their producers made to the indoor-cycling industry. Going forward, however,
Indoor cycling has had a reputation of being a good cardiovascular workout. And that is absolutely true. However, when an aspect of any activity is touted vigorously, the reputation that is created can become definition. Even a recent indoor cycling certification workshop I attended spoke of the aerobic benefits while going as far as to say other training approaches on the indoor bike are not recommended because they lack the
The beginning of class can be disjointed at times. Riders are trying to get settled. Some people are still chatting (loudly) and we are trying to establish that official “class has started” moment. Then 5 new people show up and need to be setup on their bikes. Yesterday I’m teaching at a club I’ve taught at for over 7 years. The cycling class is held in a multi-purpose room, so
