How To Become Cycle Instructor

This post contains tips and advice from a variety of authors, each providing their own insights related to becoming a cycle instructor, but first, a few brief points to consider.

As a cycle instructor, you’ll have your hands full with creating routines, choosing the right music and keeping up with the students your teaching especially if you are teaching multiple classes during the day.

Keep in mind your students may have one workout per day but you could have four of the same intense workouts per day, so you’ll need to be fit and in good shape in order to keep up.

You’ll want to keep the energy up and adjust the theme and music for the age group your teaching.

You’ll need to have a formal background in sports fitness when it comes to your education.

You’ll have to have a knack for motivating others.

You’ll want to manage your voice or even take voice lessons to keep yourself from straining your voice because you’ll be constantly coaching and moving during your class.

Take a few spin classes for yourself to get a taste of what’s it like before you pursue this career. You may even want to interview the instructors for tips and insights that will give you an overview of what’s it like to have this type of career.

Have a look at the resources below for anyone that’s interested in becoming a spin class instructor.
