CADENCE BUILDING VS. SPRINTS - WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE?
Even with a strong initial foundation, many new Spinning® instructors struggle with the differences between cadence building and sprinting. Read on to learn more about the primary differences between the two from Spinning Master Instructor Jeff Krabiel.

WHAT MAKES A GREAT INSTRUCTOR
Great Spinning® instructors have a variety of qualities that encompass the Spinning philosophy. The traditional philosophy has been to provide a safe, non-competitive experience with a well-planned profile connected to authentic music that allows all levels of participants to experience being champions. Read on to learn how and why you should remain true to these ideals so you'll stand out among the others from Spinning Master Instructor Sabrina Fairchild.
