"As a Physiotherapist specialising in Sports Injuries, I was very impressed with the attention to detail regarding pre class screening and safety checks on this course. The practicals also concentrated very heavily on correct positioning and postural alignment along with very sound advice about not putting the resistance too high. I have been a keen cyclist for over 3o years and rate this course very highly. Debbie is an excellent tutor and great motivator"

"Impressive and clear tuition in theory and practical. Very thorough grounding in all aspects of spin tuition, class planning, choreography, legals etc. and as a novice spinner I was led through the tuition process very patiently. A thoroughly rewarding and enjoyable experience which I would happily recommend."

"As an inexperienced indoor cyclist the practical part was excellent. The more practice we got throughout the course the more confident I felt. The course was recommended to me to help with personal training - but I feel confident to teach a safe class - I enjoyed every part of the course - Thanks"

A brilliant course, I learnt there is so much more to indoor cycling than any of the classes I have been to in the past.
The practical assessment was the most valuable part for me as it is the first stepping stone to taking an actual class.

Couldn't improve, it was great!
The experience with Debbie was inspirational and a fun and enjoyable environment.
Gaining confidence to teach and instruct and being able to have a hand in on coaching as well as cycling, is a benefit to my toolbox.
