The SPINPower® Instructor Certification is an extension of the Spinning® program to provide Certified Spinning Instructors and fitness professionals and enthusiasts advanced education to understand the foundational principles of power to deliver extraordinary classes and innovative training techniques. Using power provides riders an immediate measurement of their honest effort and offers accountability for weight loss, performance, and progression.
