Suzette O'Byrne on Keiser M3

Keiser Cycling Master Trainer Suzette O’Byrne and I discuss their M3 Indoor Cycle and it’s unique magnetic resistance system. Suzette also describes the focus of their Indoor cycling certification and module based continuing education programs. You can find Indoor Cycling Certifications and Workshops here.

You heard it here first!
I think Suzette gave me my first “news scoop“. Keiser Cycling is planning to announce a correspondence (home study) certification course by the end of the year. Listen to the Podcast for the details.

    Why is the m3 training priced at $1395.00 whenI can get get cerified at Mad dog for $325.00. I think they are overpricing themself in the marketing. I know in the state of Florida Keiser is mostly at La Fitness and La fitness does pay an instructor over $20.00 a class, they will also take instructors who are Johnny G certified, as long as they are certified.

    The $1395 is the price for a facility if they would like to host a workshop. The price for the correspondence course and the Foundations Course at a facility is $195.00 (ie at a conference or if one is being hosted in your area). This includes the manual (and all the materials in the correspondence course). Some facilities choose to host a workshop as they can have as many participants as they wish (one per bike) thus it is cheaper to host it if they have quite a few participants.
    I am sorry our pricing was not clearer.

    How do you become a master trainer?
    How much is it?

    Is it the hours you log on a bike, how many classes you teach is it more coaching off the bike do you have to be a personal trainer or P/t?

    I have been teaching for 2 years on a Keiser 3 to 4 hours a week sometimes more. My supervisor nor my facility never explained the bike I had to due all the research myself on my dime. I just want to teach the right way for the equipment I am on.

    Thankyou kindly

    I am a Kaiser certified instructor from a long way back. I recently had the opportunity to ride one of the new Kaiser bikes although they are a vast improvement over the old ones I am disappointed that they never changed the geometry of their bikes to more reflect an outdoor bike. It seems to me that if someone wants to raise their handlebars to more approximate an outdoor hybrid or comfort bike the bars move further away putting them in a more stretched out position. As well the ‘Q’ factor seems to be increased.

    I have two facilities I work at that both have Keiser M3s.

    It’s absolutely *not the case* that people don’t look for a particular bike. The bikes begin to read across a wide range of power outputs for the same rider output. The regulars are frequently seeking out particular bikes, especially one that doesn’t tell them they’re not working so hard (i.e. reads low wattage). We would love to know how to bring them back to a standard. We frequently reset the bikes with the forward back x5 on the gear lever. So how does it calibrate? Shayne
