Indoor Cycling remains one of the absolute top classes run in any fitness club and is extremely sought after!
How did it all begin?
In 1991, cyclist and entrepreneur John Baudhuin and South African ultra-distance cyclist Johnny "Johnny G" Goldberg introduced the world to Indoor Cycling. Working out of a garage in Santa Monica, California, they created Spinning® by uniting indoor stationary bike technology with unprecedented cycling experience.
An average 45-minute indoor cycling class will allow you to burn between 400-600 calories. At the same time, it will increase the endurance capacity of the leg muscles: quadriceps, hamstrings, gluteus, and even the calf muscles. Working out these muscles will also help to strengthen the surrounding bones, tendons and ligaments. All this is done with minimal risk of injury. When done correctly that is, there is minimal impact on the hip, knee and ankle joints while cycling.
This course is designed to provide fitness professionals with the safe and effective techniques of indoor cycling done right. We will teach you how to deliver a great Indoor Cycling class with the use of catchy music!A must have on your CV!
