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.

I've been teaching spin for some time and the MOST important thing to remember is that the workout is not about you.  You should greet each of your participants and ask about their fitness background. 

Be prepared for each class, with a set routine.  You can offer modifications for those who have hip, knee or ankle issues, while being able to maintain a challenging workout for the veteran spinners.

Depending on which certification you carry, each organization can offer ideas.  I know Johhny G is only slightly different from Reebok spin, and RPM is totally different from all of them.
