Programs to Help New Indoor Cycling Instructors

Hey guys! Happy Wednesday to you!

Today’s post is indoor cycling related, but it is not your regular indoor cycling class profile. It’s something new. And different. And exciting!

Lean Lena is launching two new programs for indoor cycling instructors.

I have created both these programs to help new indoor cycling instructors who just recently got certified and have more questions than answers, and could use some help from someone who has been in their shoes not so long ago.

Without further ado… Introducing…

Indoor Cycling Class: Run, Baby, Run

Running (also referred to as a Standing Flat) is a drill that doesn’t get the attention it deserves in my opinion. Not only it is challenging to perform, but also offers a great opportunity to improve pedaling technique while standing, develop endurance and work on smooth transitions in and out of the saddle. I decided to focus a whole ride on this great drill. See how it turned out!

Cycling Class Profile and Playlist: Ain’t No Mountain High Enough!

Hey-hey, guys! The weekly indoor cycling class profile and playlist post is here for you 🙂

This time I kind of “slacked” on creating a brand new cycling class profile and playlist from scratch. Well, not entirely. 🙂 I did something fun and meaningful for me as an instructor.

What I did for this class was this: I took the playlist and routine for my Ride #2, yes, that’s right – it was the very second class I ever taught! I then went through the routine and changed it up to improve it based on what I learned in the past years since I first taught this class.

It was a great experience – I think I’ll be doing this every few months. It’s wonderful to see the progress I’ve made since then.

Anyway, I kept the playlist the same and “re-mastered” the class profile.

As you probably noticed from the class name, it involves a lot of climbing. But hey, ain’t no mountain high enough for my super riders!
