Wednesday Poll: Theme Rides

On the eve of Valentine’s Day 2019, I got to thinking about theme rides for cycling class…a popular topic on various blogs and social media.



A quick recap of results of the poll on Class Formats:

  • By far, the classic “SPINNING” experience was the most popular format at 43%
  • An Endurance format – 11%
  • An In-Home format (Peloton) came in ahead of the two well-know boutique studios – 9%
  • SoulCycle and Flywheel each came in at 8%
  • A combo format class – 5%
  • The two Les Mills cycling programs together – 5%
  • A “trainer”-based set up (Zwift) – 1%
  • OTHERS:  HIIT class…keep it real, safe, authentic…RealRyder…Express format with basic moves & intense drills



Find me on Spotify, Twitter, Instagram & other places on the web...or at my local YMCA in the Cycle Studio! Recently ICG® WATTRATE® POWER certified, I've been a certified Mad Dogg Athletics Spinning Instructor since October 2012. I have taught classes at Davenport University, The University Club, SNAP Fitness (Watermark CC), Grand Rapids Parks & Recreation Dept., and Greater Grand Rapids YMCAs. Be Well... Enjoy the Ride! 🚴🏻🎶😅
