Testimonial: Jennifer H, NY

Certified Spin Instructor, Fitness Trainer and Nutrition Coach

"The Art of Creating Indoor Cycling Drills & Playlists was a fabulous course. Rachel is truly dedicated, experienced and knowledgeable. She is, most importantly, a super fun leader! I absolutely loved the entire course. There was so much application material that went beyond a ‘level one' instructor certification course while providing a super energetic and safe place to experiment online. I absolutely loved the optional peer review of our recorded homework assignments. I enjoyed seeing the creativity and different teaching styles of my peers. I also now enjoy other music genres to use while instructing which is important. I made some great connections with people all over the world! We are going to continue staying in touch and build an even larger collaborative music library together. Rachel takes the grit of composing a ride and breaks it down into a pattern that you will be able to use, saving hours of time. I am excited to plan classes that are efficient, planned and purposeful which will keep my attendance and retention rates higher. Gift yourself this unique opportunity. You will not regret it, especially as a new instructor, or an instructor returning from a long hiatus to get your mojo back. Go for it!"

Breakdown of Workshop

Each module focuses on specifics components of creating an indoor cycling experience as an instructor. The modules will be released weekly for an engaging learning experience. You will get to work with instructors from around the world and share your ideas and assignments in a supportive learning environment. All the modules will be available to watch at your convenience. Weekly discussion session will also be available for those who would like to connect live and walk through the modules together. In the LIVE Ride portion of the workshop, we will be taking the skills learned in the module and riding together. The LIVE portion will be recorded and available to view later on.

  • Module 1: The Art of Cueing & Leading a Cycling Class: The intention behind Module 1 is an introduction to the workshop, to bridging the Art of Cueing and 3 Styles of Learning (Kinesthetic, Auditory, Visual), and to cover the Indoor Cycling Riding Positions, along with riding safe techniques.

  • Module 2: The Art of Music in Indoor Cycling Classes: There is a wide range of variables to consider with music from tempo, revolutions per minute, beats per minute, the genre of music we chose, duration, beat drops, beat kick-ins, and how well the song matches the drills. In this module, we will bridge the gap between beats per minute and revolutions per minute, how to cue to inspire and energize using music. And finally, teach an easy-to-use method for creating indoor cycling drills with a purpose that is safe and inspires instructors.

  • Module 3: The Magic of Interval Based Drills in Indoor Cycling: Module 3 eliminates the stress of teaching by utilizing the Triangle of Interval training, which includes (Strength, Endurance, Speed, Power, Strength Endurance, Speed Endurance). Understanding the difference in each category will change the way instructors approach creating drills and save you hours of class prep time.

  • Module 4: Four Styles of Drills for a Rider’s Experience: The intention behind Module 4 is for instructors to understand the difference in styles of indoor cycling drills and their impact on a class. We will go through Choreographed Based Drills, Interactive Based Drills, Timer Based Drills, and Ride Profiles as each serves a purpose in the Rider’s experience and safety with class planning.

  • Module 5: The Art of an Indoor Cycling Experience through playlists: The intention behind Module 5 is to bring together the past 4 modules in order to give students the confidence to create their own playlists and drills with purpose and to understand why the rider’s experience is as important as the science behind the drills.

  • LIVE Ride Online Workshop Day: Our final session will be a LIVE Ride Workshop. We will ride through a series of timer, choreographed, interactive, and adventure drills together.

Testimonial: Ginny Dunhill

Ginny Dunhill, BCRPA Group Fitness, BCFIT Board Member, BCRPA Admin Team

"Though I have done indoor cycling courses in the past, I've always felt like an imposter instructor, never really feeling I had what it takes to teach a class. It wasn't until I did Rachel's training that I felt confident in my teaching abilities and ready to lead an indoor cycling class without a doubt in my mind. Rachel brings a wealth of experience, both in indoor cycling and in the fitness industry herself, and she weaves this knowledge throughout her teaching. Furthermore, she is accessible, fun, and genuinely wants her students to succeed. I believe a great instructor is one who cares about her industry as well as her students, and in preparing her students for their careers prepares them to help the industry become stronger and better. Rachel does just that. I recommend her course to anyone looking to further their indoor cycling capabilities, be they seasoned instructors or first-timers to the fitness industry. Thank you, Rachel!"

"Loved Rachel’s indoor cycling course!

FAQ

  • What if I don't have a bike at home?

    You can join in LIVE with or without a bike. We suggest once you have completed the course to take what you have learned and practice each week on a bike.

  • What if I am with another organization?

    With so many organizations worldwide, it is challenging to get CEC's for every organization. Our CEC's are approved by our Canadian Fitness Authority, however, we will be providing your forms you can petition to your organization for CEC approval. Please note, we cannot guarantee all organizations will grant the CEC's but we are happy to help you with the process. If your organization does not accept the CEC's, you are still welcome to take this as an educationalal workshop which will provide value to your classes.

  • What if I cannot attend the LIVE sessions?

    All the LIVE sessions will be recorded via zoom and added to your dashboard within 24 hours.

  • What is I am not a certified cycling instructor?

    We all start somewhere. This course would be an excellent source of information and foundation as you enter into the industry and you are welcome to participate. You will be leaps and bounds ahead of new people in your certifying program. We do highly recommend completing your governing cert. prior to leading your first class.

"I 100% highly recommend Rachel's workshops and courses. I recently completed her Indoor Cycling Certification. It was a jam-packed course that covered history, safety, coaching and planning. After completing the course, it gave me the confidence I needed to plan a well-thought-out and safe class. There were so many example drills, and tips, that I still refer back to the course materials on days when I need some inspiration, and I always find a golden nugget of knowledge that she taught us to get the creative juices flowing again."
