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, 18 and 9 minutes with a 1 minute recoveries after each interval.
I love mixing my class music and I've provide you with the MP3 below. I have also included an actual recording of me coaching this complete class. I suggest riding to this class by yourself, to experience exactly how I present this profile and you'll have a better idea of where & what I'm cuing during the class.

Enjoy and please let me know how it works for you as a comment below.

Thank you Dennis! I love everything about your profile design, teaching techniques, and your playlist is so on target.
The club I teach at does not have wattage meters and most people do not have heart rate monitors but I’m still going to make an attempt to utilize what you’ve so graciously shared.
Thank you so very much!
Leslie, try to have them find there “threshold” through RPE, then add a little gear or RPM. It should still be a challenge. If you ever get a chance to teach with wattage, this class really comes alive.
My class loved this profile!!!! Thank you for making me look good!!!!
Jody, thanks for sharing. Glad they liked it.
