Instructor TrainingOne of the most important things you can do to grow a strong, reputable Spinning® program is require your instructors keep their Spinning certification current. This not only promotes safety—it also encourages your instructors to expand their fitness knowledge and increase their marketability through continuing education. Find out how to host a training at your facility to certify instructors or help current instructors grow in their fitness education.
Team Meetings and Team RidesHold a staff meeting and team ride at least once a month. Meetings are an opportunity for each team member to remain up-to-date on all the latest program developments in Spinning. They also enable your team to get together and work to improve class design, music and coaching.
Special EventsHost a monthly specialty ride or event. Use your creativity! These rides support your members’ goals, promote instructor and member camaraderie, and are a lot of fun! Here are a few event ideas:
- Member/Instructor appreciation night: Plan a free Spinning class and potluck.
- Specialty Rides: Create a long ride that mirrors an outdoor journey.
- Spinning Nation® (on February 28th, 2015) will give your facility an opportunity to participate nationwide for the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women® campaign to stop heart disease.
- Holiday theme ride: Who doesn’t love the holidays! Be creative and add your unique touch of music and scenery to inspire some holiday fun and comradery.
