The ICE Certification Course will give you the knowledge and skills you need to conduct a highly motivated and technically correct cycling class. This 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.
**Please Note** This course by itself does not qualify you to teach or be insured. To compete the full certification you must also successfully complete Exercise Theory and have a 1st Aid & CPR certificate from a recognized provider. Please see our Certifications page for complete details.
