Introducing Our Newest Music Contributor, Jeanne Sims!

Rarely do I see someone who is as passionate about the music, the emotion attached to it, and what they do with it in their Spinning® or cycling classes as I’ve seen with Jeanne Sims. Each one of our contributors has a different style—you can’t help but find someone here who not only loves your preferred genre(s), but you’ll find someone who interprets those tracks in a way that clicks with your own personal musical soul.

Prepping for a Reset, Part 3: The Sales Pitch

In part 1, we presented the value of doing a physical, mental, and energy reset in your classes as a new year begins. In part 2, we described the elements that make up a reset and refocus.

FREE Halloween Profile: Trick or Treat!

I wanted to make one of my earlier profiles available for free so non-members can get a taste of how much detail we provide in our profiles and how much fun they can be.

The songs are awesome and eerie and your students will thank you for helping them work off some of the candy they’ve stolen from their kids! Members can also find links to our five other Halloween profiles.

Halloween Profile: Ride For Your Lives!

This particular ride is written to be performed as much as it is to be coached. The instructor takes the position as a guide on a Haunted Bike Tour past a graveyard, through Halloween Town, into the woods, past a second graveyard, and concludes with a steep ascent to Dracula’s castle. The more theatrical—the better! Might I suggest ridiculous glasses or a witch/mad hatter hat…and a fog machine?
