What motivates you to lead Spinning® instructor trainings and workshops?
You can really change people’s lives. And that fuels me. I just love it. It’s exhilarating to help others achieve their goals and I’ve evolved so much over the years as a Spinning Master Instructor and as a coach, and I’m able to lead classes big and small. It’s my passion.
How has being a Spinning® Instructor inspired you?
I’ve been trained by some amazing Certified Spinning Instructors and I believe in staying true to the Spinning program and technique. When I started raising money for causes through Spinning events, it really took things to the next level—you’re helping people and making a real difference and it just elevates your Spinning experience. I’m a coach at the core, and I use Spinning as the sport that helps inspire others to be an athlete at any age and go further than they think they can
What’s your advice for others interested in becoming a Certified Spinning® Instructor?
Spinning Instructor Training and continuing education gives people of all ages and backgrounds the best tools to teach a safe and effective class and understand the rich history of the Spinning program. If your motivation is pure and you have a passion for fitness and helping others, don’t even hesitate.
Spinning has no boundaries to who can become certified. Try it— it’s so rewarding!
The difference with Spinning and other programs is that we have such a depth in education, roots in cycling, and our global team and network of instructors.
