Take a Spin Instructor Course with the UK’s leading training provider, ICON Training. On the successful completion of your Spin Instructor Course, you will be in a great position to start working in studios and health clubs immediately.
Our Spin Instructor Courses remain in high demand simply because studio cycling is still one of the most popular class formats. A studio cycle session is an instructor-led class lasting up to an hour in duration on individual, fully adjustable cycle machines. The class is performed to music but does not involve following any difficult choreography. Studio cycle classes are suitable for everyone and cater for any level of skill and ability. The set up of a studio cycle class allows people of completely different fitness levels to ride side-by-side and feel the benefits of the workout.
Cycling is non-impact and so is often a good option for people suffering from any form of arthritis or joint degeneration in the lower limb, whilst still allowing these people to reach high levels of cardiovascular work. Studio cycling is versatile and can be used to promote fitness, fat loss, social enhancement and well-being
At ICON our experienced tutors will teach all you need to know in order to deliver fun studio cycling classes to help improve your client’s cardiovascular fitness, lung capacity, muscular endurance and boost energy levels.
