  • About SPINPower®
  • SPINPower® Instructor Training
  • Spinner® Blade ION™


Power meter innovation has proven effective in maximizing training efficiency and enhancing fitness and performance results for cyclists of all levels. As the most recognized name in indoor cycling and a worldwide leader in indoor cycling education, Spinning® is once again on the cutting edge of technology and comprehensive education. With the launch of Star Trac’s strain-gauge power meter technology, backed by an exclusive power-based training program from Angie Sturtevant, Mad Dogg Athletics unleashes the power of innovation and knowledge with the Spinner® Blade ION and the power-based Spinpower Instructor Certification for certified Spinning instructors.

Revolutionize your Spinning program with power-based training! The Spinner Blade ION takes the proven accuracy of strain gauge technology, combined with the highest level in power-based education, to bring a true professional development opportunity for instructors and Official Spinning Facilities.

By incorporating power-based training within your Spinning program, your facility will be able to provide members with:

  • Science-based training principles for individual weight loss, fitness and performance goals. 
  • Individualized training using the Personal Spinning Threshold Test (PST). The PST Test establishes a baseline power threshold to create customized Spinpower training zones.
  • High quality, power-based Spinning classes built around effective, individualized program design. 
  • Post-ride data analysis, allowing one to monitor and evaluate progress, and most importantly, GET RESULTS!


Once available only to elite athletes, power meter technology on a bicycle is now being used by a wide variety of people, with diverse objectives. Regardless of your age, gender, fitness level or athletic status, measuring work effort is key to reaching fitness and performance goals. However, simply having or using a power meter won't make you stronger. Without the element of knowledge, the computer is just a gadget and one is simply riding on a bike with a power meter. Understanding what power is and how it is measured will help you to understand the overall principles of power and science-based training. Knowledge is power and power is the science of performance.
