I missed IDEA this year but our Man on the Street Chuck Cali was there. In this video Chuck interviews a number of Instructors who took part in the demonstration classes of MyRide+ from Team ICG. This goes to my earlier post about the potential of constructing a studio in a way that will really engage your students, with minimal distractions. Originally posted 2012-07-24 08:50:39.
You’re passionate about fitness, you love indoor cycling and you may even be an outstanding instructor yourself. You recognize the amazing energy in a great class, and you’ve also seen a lot of poor or mediocre classes that frustrate you. Maybe you’ve wondered if a dedicated studio can make money? Should you start your own studio? Great questions. While not nearly as common as yoga studios, there are
I was greeted by another Spotify update this morning and see they’ve added a new way to accidentally screw up your class 🙁 Forgive me if you have already experienced this Spotify update. I might be a few days late reporting the change – I’ve been using the new Schwinn Class Tamer app and wanted to use a past Spotify playlist today. That big Shuffle Play button sits there at
If you’re teaching with power, there’s a good chance you’ll have a participant ask you this simple question; how many watts should I be making when I’m working at my threshold? Same goes for any new studio or one that is upgrading to indoor Cycles with power/watts. You will be asked for a number from many of your riders. The reason is pretty simple, many people naturally want to know how they
This week’s track will bring your class up a slow, steep hill as the rpm remains the same, but the gear becomes more intense with each minute. Bishop Briggs‘ song, River is one that will get stuck in your head long after this hill is over and you’ll want to use it again and again. It would also make a great standing climb.

So you made it through your audition and your name is listed as “Instructor” on the schedule. Congratulations! It’s very common for the initial excitement, “I can’t believe it… I’m an Indoor Cycling Instructor!!” to quickly fade away, replaced by fear and anxiety. The realization that in __ days you’ll be mounting the bike and leading your class for the very first time, typically solicits “HELP! I’m teaching my first class on Thursday!!”
The big news at this years IDEA World Fitness Convention was the launch of Fitness Connect, which is the world’s largest fitness professional directory, connecting more than 16 million consumers to more than 100,000 fitness professionals with credentials verified by the top 14 fitness certification bodies. While I was at the convention I met Jason Davis -IDEA’s Internet Revenue Director. Jason walked me through a demonstration of Fitness Connect and
Are you annoying some of your current (or potential) participants? You know, rubbing those folks who are of a different/opposite personality type than yours the wrong way? I recently came to the conclusions that there’s a good chance that I do at times – please let me know if any of this makes sense to you… Yesterday I gave a presentation to our sold-out group of studio owners and Instructors

Time is the great equalizer. We all have different abilities, different income, different experiences, but one thing we all have the same of, is TIME. I don’t know about you, but I am a time miser; greedy, protective and otherwise fanatical about not wasting that precious resource. That’s how I’m going to make up for not having other advantages – I’m going to make every minute count. I’m such a
