Indoor Cycling Class Profiles

Are you looking for new ideas for Indoor Cycling Class Profiles?

Hi! And thanks for checking out this page where I post links to my Indoor Cycling Class Profiles.

I post a Spinning ® / Indoor Cycling routine every week and link them back right here, so make sure you check back for more next week, or better yet – sign up to get my blog updates by e-mail and never miss another post with a cycling class routine or tips for indoor cycling instructors.

You might also like my collection of Indoor Cycling / Spinning® Playlists that I keep right here.

While you’re checking out these cycling routines, please keep in mind, that none of them constitutes a COMPLETE instruction plan for the class.

No matter how detailed they may seem, they’re all just “schematics” you can use to build your own unique Spinning ® / Indoor Cycling routine that would be a demonstration of your teaching style.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or feedback!

    I just recently became a certified indoor cycling instructor. Very motivated & ready to put my learning to an actual practice. However, I’m so new to teaching & need all the help to land a part time job. I read your blog on the new to teaching. Very helpful – what clubs to I target!

  2. Could you please tell me where I can purchase the Police vs. Coldplay remix of Roxanne (Put on the Red Light). I love it and want to use it in class.

    This is great for new ideas and music for rides

  4. Hi – what a fantastic list of classes – thank you so much! Have you considered putting together a Christmas playlist?


  5. Stumbled upon your blog Lena. Great resource for instructors looking to teach cycling in an effective, safe manner. Thanks! 🙂

  6. Thanks Lena for taking time to create this blog. I wish I could have stumbled upon this when I was a new instructor several years ago. I have been teaching for quite awhile now, but struggle sometimes to keep it fresh, so I appreciate the new ideas your blog gives me. It’s fantastic! Thanks for creating it!

    • Jennifer, it is my pleasure! Thank you for taking the time to send this message and please, feel free to share this blog with new instructors! Best of luck, Lena.

  7. Hey! 🙂
    I’ve been taking a peek to your blog and it has some amazing material, it’s amazing how you’re multi talented and dedicated 🙂
    This beeing said, I’d like to pick your brain on something i’ve been searching for but didn’t find anything in concrete.
    I once saw a continued education of Spinning that was about aplying tabata to Spinning. Do you know how to build a profile like that taking in account the rules on creating a Spinning profile embedding tabata on it?

    Thanks in advance! 🙂

    • Hi Miguel! Thanks for stopping by and for your kind words. I regularly teach Tabata style routines and would love to answer any questions you might have.
      Please, take a look at the Mentorship Program I offer here on the blog and we can set up a time to talk.
      Thanks again for visiting!
      All the best,

    I haven’t had a chance to try Hills & Sprints on a class yet, but looks like a fun profile to try. I’m not sure about the standing flats, I’m assuming very little resistance with high cadence?

    • Hi Sandra.Wrong 😊 Never stand with very little resistance. Never ride with very little resistance. It should be enough to safely stand up and not feel like a climb. Body position is also different from that of a standing climb.

    struggling to find your spin playlist on spotify even after I hit link. I see only yoga and trx. Thank you so much for creating and sharing these class profiles.

  10. Hi I have just become a spinning instructor. I am so thankful to lean Lena for all these profiles I was so confused how to use it and this profiles has really helped.

    Any help hugely appropriated

  12. Thanks for the share profile! I have not had chance to review them yet; however, I’m looking to review them soon! My schedule has been so busy with teaching and personal training.
