CPD- Indoor Cycling

Indoor Cycling Instructor Training

Becoming an Indoor Cycling Instructor will give  you lots of additional  skills in building relationships with clients quite differently to working the gym floor.

Employers are constantly looking for Indoor Cycling Instructors as this is a very  popular form of exercise and classes are frequently fully booked. Not being able to find an instructor with the right qualification can mean disappointing class members … who wants to have that stress as a Club Manager?

Additionally …teaching these classes will help you gain great experience as you work towards your Level 3 Personal Trainer qualification ….setting you apart from those who simply have gym experience.

So what have you got to lose?

You’ll be more employable …earn extra money …and become a better trainer in the long term!
