WHY SMALLER SPINNING® STUDIOS CAN OFFER A BIG ADVANTAGE
In recent years, there has been an increase in the number of privately owned “boutique” Spinning studios around the world. While large health clubs and corporate franchises usually offer a big variety of class formats and instructor options, smaller clubs tend to embrace a more intimate approach that helps clients set personalized goals and track progress toward individual achievements. Read on to learn more about the benefits of smaller fitness studios from Spinning Master Instructor Raquel Rezàra Schmidt, Ph.D.

TRIVIA AND TIPS: MAKE IT FUN AND EDUCATIONAL WHILE THEY SWEAT
With close to 70 percent of America’s population being overweight, it is your job as a fitness professional to educate your students about proper nutrition and to instill the confidence that they can make a positive lifestyle change. Overweight individuals are likely to attend your Spinning® classes, so take advantage of the 45–60 minutes for which you have their attention to teach them about how to improve their diet. Learn more about some creative ways to do so from Spinning instructor Jenn Zerling, MS, CPT.


ANNOUNCING: MOTHER'S DAY FACEBOOK CONTEST WINNER!
We asked the Spinning® community on Facebook to tell us why their mom, sister, aunt, grandma, friend, etc. deserved to win a Spinner® PACE bike for Mother's Day and we really felt the love! With over 350 entries full of incredibly inspiring stories, it was very difficult to choose a winner. Congratulations to Philip Cooper who has won a Spinner PACE bike for his friend Terry! This is what Philip wrote:

"My Friend Terry, she's not my mom, but she is a mother (she also raised her sister’s two daughters after she passed away), was a Spinning instructor for 24 Hour Fitness for over 18 years. She recently was diagnosed with breast cancer (very aggressive triple negative cancer) she has currently had to stop teaching, but she does want to continue working out in a safe environment. Because she has to be careful because the chemo has suppressed her immune system, it would be awesome for her to have a Spinning bike at home. Most of the bikes she has taught on for her career have been Spinners. I too am a Spinning instructor and I love your bikes..."

Philip, please contact jzinchuk@maddogg.com to claim your prize. Thank you to all who entered and happy Mother's Day to all the amazing mothers!

CELEBRATE NATIONAL BIKE MONTH
May is National Bike Month, which celebrates the unique power of the bicycle and the many reasons we ride. Whether you bike indoors, outdoors or both, to work or school; to save money or time; to preserve your health or the environment; to explore your community or get to your destination, get involved in Bike Month in your city or state and help get more people in your community riding too!

Get involved by teaching an extra Spinning® class this month. Encourage a friend or family member that has never taken a class before to try it out. Check out the full line of Spinner® bikes and bring one home to keep up with your health and fitness goals. However you choose to get involved, just remember to keep on riding!

FACILITY OF THE MONTH: ASHEVILLE CYCLE
Asheville Cycle is Western North Carolina’s newest official Spinning® facility and Asheville’s only stand-alone Spinning studio. Inspired by the area’s beautiful scenery and the challenging cycling it offers, the studio focuses on bringing this experience indoors. The enthusiastic instructors educate, motivate and attract not only local road and mountain bikers, but also riders who seek to improve their fitness through the Spinning experience.

Eric Johnston, a STAR 3 Spinning instructor and avid road cyclist, owns Asheville Cycle. "I have dreamed of a studio for several years and am excited by the opportunity to motivate others to live better, healthier lives," says Johnston.
