I love seeing long-time sponsor Pearl iZumi offering a special clothing sale I can share with our ICI/PRO Platinum annual members. Through the end of the month members can purchase anything Pearl makes at our PRO/Purchase 40% discount and pay no shipping. The clothing and footwear displayed are all current models – not a few old/discontinued/closeouts they’re trying to dump. Which has me poking around on our special website page this morning.
Above everything else; your participants want to have fun in your indoor cycling classes.
Join ICI/PRO to learn how to give them what they want (FUN), while you add in what they really need (effective training).
Occasionally I’ll see stories pop up where a class participant writes a review of an Indoor Cycling class he or she took. What makes this review noteworthy is that Bryan Ganey, the writer of this review, has lost an incredible 400 pounds and has written a book about his surgery-free, weight loss journey. First Bryan’s review of CHS Revolution and then more about Bryan below. From ganeybypass.blogspot.com Review: The CHS
The word out is that YouTube is planning to launch a streaming service, similar to Spotify and Deezer, for music videos. The premium version would be advertisment free which would be very cool. I realise that in the past we (and others) have pointed out that playing YouTube videos in a commercial setting (your class) is against YouTube’s terms and conditions that prohibit displaying their videos in a club, bar
Have you ever considered giving up control of your class music to a DJ? I’m thinking it would be scary for some of us, those who enjoy the predictability of knowing exactly what track is next on their playlist. Instructor Timothy Brumm says that fear can also be exciting and it will really challenge your improvisational skills as an Indoor Cycling Instructor! Tim teaches at the Life Time Fitness in
Spotify has added an Equalizer to their iPhone App in the latest update. NOTE: Spotify triggers software upgrades progressively, to groups of users over time. If you’re not seeing the notification (pictured above) – you will soon. This morning I saw the new notice, while I was checking that I had my playlist set to off-line mode and that it would play. This is cool, I thought and I had the
I know it’s summer. I also know that this warm, beautiful weather is going to end long before I’m ready. When it does I’ll want to escape to a warm beach, even if only for a week. Past experience tells me that there are limited opportunities to travel where Amy and I can teach fitness, in exchange for an all-inclusive vacation at a resort in the Caribbean. This morning, Amy
Are you as particular about the songs you play as I am? Now I know that sometimes my choice in music may not appeal to you… or everyone in my class for that matter. I like the music… that I like 🙂 Do you have this same problem? How can I easily find music that I like, without spending a huge amount of time sampling hundreds of songs? Occasionally I’ll
If you’ve ever had an idea for a new, fitness related product or service? Dream about building a company around your new widget and then selling your company to a larger company? If that sounds like you, you’ll want to listen to this interview with fitness entrepreneur Sara Shears. Sara invented the Ugi ball to help her personal training clients train more frequently. After years of effort, she was
When I get the same question, from two ICI/PRO members, a week apart, it means I should probably write a post about the subject. First the questions: Hi John – I hope you are doing well and have the prospect of defrosting in the near future! A question came up at one of the places where I teach about minimum age for spinning. Back when I was certified, I understood
My brain started spinning (pardon the pun)… the door swung open… and I stepped out. Once I realized that the indoor cycle doesn’t move, I opened my mind to many things previously deemed unacceptable. Hello My name is Karen and I stepped out of the box last year. I am also the self proclaimed spokesperson for KEEPING IT FUN™ Indoor Cycling. I’m committed to helping other indoor cycling instructors who aren’t
