Watch this video on cadence drills. While I was with Mad Dogg Athletics and Spinning® I wrote the workshop and manual for the new cadence meter when it was unveiled in 2005.

I am so grateful to have been recruited to shoot a video designed to inspire women to make healthy choices, such as becoming addicted to sports and fitness. Please share this video with your students and prospective students. Hopefully together we can convince more and more women to come take your classes!
This song is a feel-good, inspirational track. It may be your missing piece for that post-Thanksgiving Day ride, where you need to find every way to motivate your riders. But, don’t be fooled by the positive message, you’ll want your riders to climb hard and strong on this one!
