I love getting emails like this and wanted to share it with you!
I just wanted to say "hi" and also a big "thank you". I teach cycle classes in Melbourne, Australia. I was looking at some inspiration for my Cycle classes and found myself totally hooked to your podcasts, which opened a whole new world to me. I've been teaching cycle classes as a part time job. I also teach other classes (Les Mills Bodypump/Combat and boxing). I lost my full time job a few weeks ago and group fitness classes have been my daily job since. I have to say it's been quite a challenge to keep all the workout fresh but most of all to keep up the passion, enthusiasm and fun about teaching classes. I had moments of self doubt whereby I thought I wasn't made for this industry.
I find it very inspiring to listen to all your high profile athletes/master instructor guests talking about their experience and passion about indoor cycling, how they got to indoor cycling and what make them so unique. I have to say having knowledge of this could be intimidating for someone like me who's just a part-time cycle instructor teaching 2 hrs cycling classes a week but at the same time, everyone comes from different backgrounds and that's what make a class experience unique at the end of the day. I guess that's what I'm taking with me before teaching a class.
Keep up the good work, John!
