Quick Profile: Progressive Dueling Intervals—Wild and Crazy Version

A good profile should provide you with endless ways to use it, saving you tons of time in the process. We have had several versions of this profile at ICA.

I also modified the intervals slightly, so it will seem fresh and new to your riders.

Wednesday Timeless Classics: The Greatest Cool-Down Song Ever Written

Of all the songs I’ve ever used for a cool-down track in 24 years of teaching, this is the one that calms my mind, body, and soul more than any other. I have to be careful I don’t use it too often. I have a feeling you’ll agree and will love it as much as I do! It’s also great for yoga, meditation, or just as a song to play when you need to smile.
