We’re very excited to introduce this new certification for Manitoba! This 8 hour course will cover topics specific to leading group exercise cycling classes. This practical based course will help you plan, develop and lead indoor cycling classes and cover everything from bike-set-up and safely to pedaling, cadence, posture, structure, content as well as the physiology behind this type of cardiovascular training. Become a great coach with ideas about cueing, class styles and use of music. No previous cycling experience required. Each participant must be ready to ride and bring a towel, water bottle and a set of headphones.
