I am going to start a spin class in about 6mths, I am waiting for the building to be finished being built. Just wondered if anyone has any tips. I am worried more about out performing my class. Any tips or hits are appreciated. Thanks
I don't teach a class, but I've been to enough classes to tell you that you won't have to worry about outperforming your class. Just crank up the resistence on the bike. Garaunteed you will sweat your little butt off!! Fun stuff, especially if you have a good instructor. Have fun!!
Aside from the fact that everyone can set their own resistance, just talk to the students before you start. (I've never taught, but I've taken a lot of spin classes.)
Make sure you can identify newbies or anyone with injury or health concerns and pay special attention to make sure they're not overdoing it. Give them options - if you're doing jumps or a long standing climb, give a seated option for the beginners to do, so they're not killing themselves, but you're still letting the advanced people get a great workout in.
That seems like the best method IMO. And just pay attention to see if anyone is visibly struggling.
