Not only do we offer the most comprehensive education in the industry with additional Heart Zones@ and Power certifications, we provide the most options from On-Line / On-Demand workshops, Self-Study and On-Site opportunities to get your certification.  

We have certified indoor cycling instructors all over the world

Over 1,500 instructors certified in more than 44 countries

OPTION 1: On-Line Workshop

This is not your typical online course. This dynamic workshop was filmed live with multiple cameras, indoor and outdoor video, side bar educational segments, graphic illustrations, and 2 master classes. You are practically sitting in a live workshop from the comfort of your own home. You have full control to repeat different chapters and review the material you really want to focus on. Once you are done taking the workshop and studying the manual, you can then take the online exam.

OPTION 2: Study the Manual and Take the Test

If you have already taken an 8 hour workshop to learn how to teach Indoor Cycling or Spinning®, but you have not had your certification active or renewed, you can purchase the exam and Essential Training for Indoor Cycling manual and study at your own pace. When you are ready, take your exam online. If you have never taken a full day workshop, you will likely need Option 1 above.


OPTION 3: Attend an On-Site, In-Person Workshop

Attend an Essential Training for Indoor Cycling workshop at a host site near you. You will have an opportunity to interact with a master instructor and make valuable connections with other instructors, check out our On-Site, In-Person schedule.

Stop watching and start teaching. Bring your own music and energy and we can train you to do the rest.
