Total Class Length: 60 Minutes
With the battle raging in indoor cycling between scientifically proven training techniques and fun workouts, I believe there is a place for both.
The HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) portion of the class will be structured intervals while the Party on the Bike portion will be music mapping to some classic "Happy Hour" tunes. Both types of interval sets will be performed at a high intensity.
As a bonus, Dennis has created two MP3s to help you successfully teach this class:

Thanks Dennis! I did this as a go to, class that I was asked to sub. Hard effort, great music ,and everything was all there! Thank you Thank you.
Robin, you are so welcome. I’m glad you enjoyed it.
Dennis, thank you so much for the AWESOME profile. Not only is the profile great but being able to listen to you teach it also was extremely helpful for cuing. I taught class this morning and received SO many compliments from the members. They wanted to know the songs, they loved the variety and they had fun and felt SPENT at the end of class. Exactly what they wanted coming in today. For me, this is especially great too because as a sub for their regular Sat morning instructor, it was great to see them all so thrilled. Thank you again!!!
Natalie, thank you for the kind words. I’ll try to keep the profiles coming.
