EMPOWERING CYCLING INSTRUCTORS

___

MEET OUR TEAM OF EDUCATORS

Meet the global team of Stages Indoor Cycling Master Educators. 

Simplified yet fun.  As a new to cycle instructor, I feel confident in how to build a class and teach with excellence so my participants get more from their cycle workouts.

I felt a sense of togetherness and inclusion throughout the entire training. It was intense, but it allowed me to go beyond my workouts limits, limits that I had no idea I could reach. It was awesome!

I have been to many different training workshops over the years, and the Stages Instructor Certification was one of the best I have ever attended. There was never a dull moment, and I loved how hands-on and personally relevant all the topics were.
