Performance Cycling levels - which is right for me?

To accommodate the needs of individuals and instructors worldwide, we are pleased to offer 2 main levels of certification.

Both levels provide the same expert support and both provide and assess knowledge on the underpinning theory, essential to be an instructor.

CIMSPA AccreditedREPs AccreditedPerformance Cycling Professional (Level 2)

Our original and 'flagship' level

  • Our Pro Instructor (Level 2) is achievable via our 2 day live and in house courses or 100% online (ONLINE - Level 2 is available on completion of our Level 1 online. Book both levels online together for a discount. LIVE - combines both levels, so you do not need to have our Level 1 or any other fitness qualification beforehand.)
  • Designed specifically for new instructors as well as experienced instructors wanting to acheive the highest award in indoor cycling and wishing to progress after doing other indoor group cycling courses. 
  • The ONLY UK indoor cycling certificate accepted for freelance insurance cover for those without prior fitness qualifications.
  • Externally accredited and endorsed by both CIMSPA and the updated REPs for the maximum points available for indoor cycling. 
  • Level 2 includes additional and advanced choreography, assesses practical skills and gives instructors further benefits and opportunities for promotion and progession once qualified. You can even get an introduction to gyms in your area once qualified too!
  • The fee for Level 2 live (2 days and includes Level 1) is £285 per person. (Save £10 when paying by DIrect Debit.)
  • Level 2 online can be bought as an upgrade by current Level 1 instructors for £120 and also gives a generous 6 months to complete. (You can complete as fast as wanted within this time.)
