How to Be Certified in Teaching Spin Classes
Become a Spinning Class Teacher (

Spinning is an exercise method created by cyclist "Johnny G." Goldberg as a way of training for bike races. Now spinning is particularly popular in gym settings, especially among women. Spinning classes take place in a room of stationary bicycles. The instructor usually runs the class in the front, instructing the members to visualise specific outdoor bicycling challenges, like going up and down hills and riding through rocky terrain. Spin classes can only be taught by certified spin class instructors.
