Top 10 Reasons to Attend Spinning® Escape Jamaica (SEJA)

As a Spinning® Master Instructor for 12 years until 2009, I worked with some of the most amazing, passionate, and motivating presenters in the fitness industry. Several of those Spinning MIs have joined forces and created an incredible fitness event in Jamaica they call SEJA. Natashia Iacovelli, one of those exceptional master instructors from Australia, sent me the scoop on this event and I couldn’t wait to share it with you.

Imagine learning, training, and meeting like-minded people, while combining it with a vacation on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world! I assure you, if there is any way you can get yourself down to Jamaica in November, it will be a lifetime experience.  I’ve arranged for ICA followers to get a special discount. (See below)

The SEJA sessions have been designed and selected to not only develop the skills of fitness professionals but also provide a weekend of fun and inspiration for all types and levels of indoor cycling, fitness enthusiasts, and yogis. More than 50 sessions over the three days will be delivered by internationally renowned Spinning® Master Instructors, yoga and fitness presenters from across the world as well as Jamaica. With Spinning® journey rides and workshops, yoga on the beach, functional training, instructor certifications and pool sessions – there is something for everyone.

In true Jamaican flavor, it is not all sweat and hard work, as there will be delicious Jamaican delicacies served over the weekend, a reggae party with music on the beach, and for those who have any energy left, you can book on one of the private chartered boat cruise with snorkeling and swimming into the sunset.
