Indoor Cycling Exercise (ICE)
Learn to teach Indoor Cycling (aka "Spin") classes.
**Please note, all students in ICE must also complete Exercise Theory and have a current 1st Aid & CPR. You may take the ICE, ET and 1st Aid & CPR courses in any order, but ALL must be completed before you will be certified to teach. **
The ICE Certification Course will give you the knowledge and skills you need to conduct a highly motivated and technically correct cycling class. Your 10 hour course will include an Intro to Cycling which covers bike safety and bike setup, tips on how to dress and remain comfortable while participating in a cycling class. The chapter on Cycling Basics will include body positions, bio-mechanical and alignment considerations, pedal stroke efficiency and intensity. And finally, Physiology and Class Design covers class breakdown, training principals, cycling physiology, training zones, sample class designs paired with music, and leadership.
