I'm pretty excited. I'm subbing a Cycle Sculpt class tomorrow! Cycle Sculpt is a branded class format at Life Time Fitness, designed to attract the crowd who would be interested in a SoulCycle like class. This won't be my first time teaching this format – a little over a year ago I had the privilege and wrote about my experience here.
This class format has been evolving. Instead of using weights/bands while on the bikes, now we split the class up into two groups; half ride while the other half completes Boot Camp style circuit training on the floor.
It's like herding cats
Yesterday I discussed with Kadi (it's her class) how she conducted the class. She explained that it can get a little chaotic with so many people moving around the room – she typically has ~50 people. “Give each group a simple objective that they can complete on their own” was her advice, along with doing my best to keep everyone smoothly moving and focused.
As a side note I will be interested to see how many people I recognise. My previous experience was that most of the participants were completely unknown = they don't come to regular cycling classes.
I'm all about self-directed work. So I created the simple profile below and I'm (pretty)confident everyone will be able to follow it successfully 🙂
