Training for Peak Performance

Performance in a Spinning® class is about combining training and trust to achieve your goals. Your students should feel challenged physically and they should be engaged emotionally and mentally in the class experience. Read on to learn more about STAR 3 Spinning instructor, Dr. K.C Wilder’s unique method called “Train-to-Trust” that will teach your students a fundamental mental skill that will enhance performance in class.

One of the most controversial and least understood movements in the Spinning® program is Jumps. Many people believe the movement is unsafe, but when appropriate resistance levels are used and with proper form and technique, Jumps are beneficial to both muscular endurance and cardiovascular development. Read on to learn more about this fun and unique movement from Spinning Master Instructor Jeff Krabiel.
