// Indoor Cycling Choreography: Sounds like a plan

by Effe Diamond

Eager new cycle instructors may be at risk of developing bad habits because; a) they are unsure of how to put a class together and; b) they do not receive consistent evaluation and development from their group fitness managers.

For those new to cycle instructing, it is best to start by devising a simple-to-follow framework, and then to fill in the gaps (riding positions, choreography, music, verbal/non verbal cues, leg speed, load level and intensity). The basic class plan below is an example of this framework, and will give you a better understanding of how to begin structuring your classes.
