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 Boca Raton, Florida, where he's taught multiple special event classes with the assistance of a DJ. Seeing this as a trend, I looked for someone with experience and posted a request on Facebook. Tim responded and was nice enough to share his insights and experiences on successfully leading Indoor Cycling classes, where a DJ is providing the music.

Great Interview … I love the DJ idea!
Nice job, Tim 🙂
To answer your question … yes, we change our class schedule 3 times a year and it follows the public school system calendar.
Karen your comment has me asking the question: How do you decide what times to offer classes? Have you ever surveyed your customers asking them?
I’m so sorry I did not see your response, John until now.
I’m cracking up that you asked me that question because … YES … I just surveyed my customers Tuesday! I’m going to send a similar survey out prior to each of our seasonal schedule changes. This was my first survey… next time there are a few things I would do slightly differently. Regardless the responses are exceptionally helpful. The only downside I see is that I’m going to need another’s 12 step program because I’m officially now a Survey Addict.
I don’t see a way to post a picture on to this reply.
I’ll post a screenshot example of responses to your Facebook Cycling Studio Owners/Managers page. I know that many studio owners or managers will find it extremely relevant to studio ownership in the present day.
