Learn to Teach Indoor Cycling (aka "spin")!

The ICE 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: the ICE course by itself is not a certification to teach. You must also have Exercise Theory, and 1st Aid +CPR to be fully certified & insured.
