Booty Blogger review of Pedal Studio and Jennifer Sage ride

By Jennifer Sage On October 12, 2012 1 Comment

Spinning classI was tickled to death when I saw this review this morning! When I was in London two weeks ago, I helped launch the new Pedal Studio Spinning studio in Wimbeldon. On that Friday morning, I taught a special class just for the media, to show them how a class that shuns some of the more popular gimmicky techniques and employs cycling-specific keep-it-real methods can be an exciting, fun and effective workout. I did a modified version of my Roller Coaster ride, making sure to make it hard, while offering options, and staying very realistic to outdoor cycling. This was the response from one of the participants, a blogger for Fitness Freak and Booty Blogger:

Spin for the Cure Cincinnati 2012

By Jennifer Sage On October 4, 2012 No Comments

One of the most exciting fundraisers in the country is taking place this weekend in Cincinnati. Spin® For The Cure is an amazing event started 7 years ago by Vickie Magliano. I was honored to be one of the presenters last year but was unable to be there this year. I can’t wait to hear how it goes…and I’m planning on making sure to keep my schedule open next year!

If you are anywhere within driving distance of Cincinnati, I strongly urge you to attend this event —there may be a few slots left for bikes. You will not only be inspired by the excellent presenters (some of my favorite Spinning Master Instructors, including Raquel Schmidt and Angie Scott, will be leading part of the ride) but

Spinning instructor continuing education

The Cause and Effect workshop

I am winding down a 3-week trip to Europe that started off in the Netherlands, where I did a Master Spinning® class with two other presenters (current Spinning MI Hans Hoebbel and former Spinning MI Nancy Hasselbaink), plus a weekend of ICA workshops. This past weekend was spent in Wimbledon in London where I helped launch the brand new Pedal Studio in Wimbledon with a press day and my Alpe d’Huez Master Class on Friday, and four ICA continuing education workshops over the weekend. In between the two training weekends, my husband and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary with some cycling in Alsace, France.

I’ll have some photos of our cycling trip posted soon, but I wanted to put up a few great

Would you like to go to the Tour de France?!

By Jennifer Sage On November 1, 2011 1 Comment

Those who know me well, know I am a Tour de France fanatic. I love simulating Tour de France stages in my Spinning® classes, and have created an extensive program (audio and visual) to teach Spinning® and indoor cycling instructors how to put together exciting Tour de France programs in their cycling studios. You may or may not know that I have owned a bicycle tour company since 2003 and have led and organized bicycle tours in Europe since 1989!

Spin for the Cure in Cincinnati

By Jennifer Sage On October 18, 2011 No Comments

I’ve presented a fair number of fundraising events, and they have always meant a lot to me. There is so much energy in the room, and the smiling happy faces of people riding for a cause is so wonderful to experience. Last week in Cincinnati I had the very special opportunity to be a part of the presenting instructors for the Spin for the Cure, the 6th annual fundraiser event for breast cancer, created by Vickie Magliano.

I led hours two and four of the four-hour event. Jim Nugent, local Master Instructor for the Spinning® program led the first hour, and local indoor cycling instructor and cyclist extraordinaire, Bev Ramos, led hour number three.

I had such a great time at this event, and
