Want to stand out from the crowd? If you’re the type of Spinning instructor who rides with perfect form, knows the Energy Zones™ inside and out, and teaches Spinning classes as they are truly meant to be taught, then you’ll want to earn the STAR 2 designation. STAR 2 Spinning instructors are the leaders of the pack, demonstrating their commitment to being the best instructors they can be. This skills assessment workshop includes a group demonstration and individual presentations. During the group demonstration you will be evaluated on riding form, technique. Correct hand positions and cadence. For the individual presentation you will teach an abbreviated class and receive critique on everything from voice projection and cueing to music use and coaching. You must have 9 STAR points prior to attending, and you’ll earn 11 STAR points for this workshop, giving you the 20 points required for STAR 2. The final step is to pass the online multiple-choice exam (exam fee extra), which will test your knowledge of the Spinning Energy Zones, heart rate training, aerobic base building and coaching skills.
