I first met Dr. Kevin Steele in the mid 2000's when he was with Life Time Fitness and it was a real treat to catch up with him again at the past MINDBODY FitPRO conference this past Fall.
In his role as VP of Programs and Education at Mad Dogg Athletics, Kevin heads up the educational offerings for all of Mad Dogg's fitness brands, including; Spinning®, SpinPower™, Peak Pilates®, Bodyblade®, Resist-A-Ball®, CrossCore®, KettleBell Concepts® and Ugi®.
The guy knows cycling and endurance training >
Dr. Steele has his Ph.D. in exercise physiology with a sub-specialty in nutrition, and his B.S. in sports medicine and physical education. He has participated in the RAAM cycling race across the United States, the Ironman Triathlon World Championship in Hawaii three times, bike raced in Europe, and ran in numerous marathons.

Toward the end of the interview, Kevin and I discuss their Ugi Fit training system – programming that sounds like it could be an awesome addition to a pure Indoor Cycling boutique studio wanting to add a strength offering to their schedule. The appeal to me personally… I could get certified as a Ugi Instructor, without needing to go the full Group Fitness Instructor certification route. Would that be of value to you ?
Here's a brief video that describes Ugi.
