Overview

This Indoor Cycling Instructor (Spinning) course is offered to existing gym instructors, aerobics instructor and personal trainers who wish to improve their knowledge and skills to enable them to deliver group indoor cycling sessions. It is also relevant for those already running such sessions without a current certificate. Indoor cycling (often referred to as spinning) is a popular and highly enjoyable flexible exercise system that is open to most people irrespective of age, ability or fitness level.

The beauty of Indoor cycling is that it can be enjoyed by almost all people. Spinning can be used as a highly motivational group activity where endurance programmes and high intensity workouts can lead to great results. On the other hand, indoor cycling may be used for gentle rehabilitation work in a group setting to enable people of all abilities to work together and to realise the benefits and social aspect of group workouts and this approach also works well in a weight management and obesity setting. In summary, having a REPs certificate in Indoor Cycling (Spinning) will significantly enhance your repertoire of exercise options.
