Intro

Capitalise on the popularity of Spinning and RPM with our Level 2 Indoor Cycling Instructor course. It’s an essential qualification for those professionals looking to make themselves as employable as possible. The popularity of indoor cycling continues to rapidly increase, with new trends and spins on the formula emerging all the time. Those who participate in cycling classes experience a great range of health and fitness benefits, including weight management, improved cardiovascular efficiency and greater levels of muscular endurance to name but a few.

This qualification is accredited by YMCA Awards (formerly CYQ) and across the journey of the course, we’ll equip you with the essential skills needed to safely and effectively instruct indoor cycling sessions. You’ll also learn about a variety of physical and psychological benefits; important anatomy and physiology considerations; and engaging ways to make your classes the best they can be.

Our course are delivered via a blend of distance learning and an intensive 2-day practical workshop. This approach allows you to get up to speed on the theory in your own time, freely access our e-learning and printed materials, and utilise the support from our experienced tutors. You’ll then be able to apply your knowledge in a practical way throughout the rest of the course.

Indoor cycling presents an ideal step up for those who have already achieved a Level 2 Gym Instructor, or a related fitness instructor qualification.

Course content

Our Indoor Cycling Instructor course won’t just teach you the basics, or theory in abstract, it shows you how to apply this knowledge when it comes to actually planning and instructing classes of your own. At the end of the day, that’s the sole purpose of our qualification, to take your career to the next level. The following is by far an exhaustive list, or everything you will learn on this course, but it will serve as a great introduction of what to expect.

•    Planning safe and effective indoor cycling sessions
•    Teaching fun, energetic and effective indoor cycling sessions
•    Health, safety and welfare considerations
•    A variety of cycling approaches and techniques
•    Setting up indoor cycling classes
•    Using music effectively for exercise
•    Motivating participants during a class/session

Assessment

The course is comprised of three main elements:

  • Knowledge-based assessments including multiple choice exams
  • Practical weekend where you’ll be taught how to deliver an indoor cycling session, you’ll also be assessed on your ability to deliver one
  • Lesson plan demonstrating your ability to plan and progress an indoor cycling session over a 4 week period

Prerequisites

If you’ve ever participated in an indoor cycling session yourself, you know how hard it can be to dig deep and keep pedalling when your body feels like it’s going to give way. Being a great motivator and commanding a room are essential skills to have. As a qualified instructor, you could be the deciding factor between a client giving up and getting off the bike, or pushing through to the end of the session.

Aside from personal qualities, in order to enrol, you must have, or be working towards, a Level 2 Certificate in Fitness Instruction (Gym or Exercise to Music). This can either be held in the context of exercise of music, gym instruction, circuit training or aqua instruction. We also also recommend that if you’ve never taken a spinning class you do so during the distance learning period of the course. Being familiar with the bike and the structure of sessions will prove incredibly useful.

    The support and resources you have access to while completing the qualifications are great, online presentations and a workbook that guides you through the study. Good experience and seems like a great price when compared with the competitors.

    I would like to thank everyone at HFE for all their help trying to adapt the course for Covid. My older adults course was great and and Janine and Gregg were so helpful throughout my course and I can’t wait to start my next course with you guys!

    The Mat Pilates course looked quite intense and I had only a basic and I mean basic idea of the exercises. Christmas made it all the more stressful and I wondered if I had done the right thing booking the course. My fears were quickly put to rest!

    Webinars were very useful for me as this is the best way for me to study but you will need to read the manuals as well. I would definitely use HFE again, hoping to advance on my qualifications in 2016. Thanks
