Stages BEATS Live Certification • January 14, 2022 • CU Boulder

Your measure by measure guide to coaching to the beat

Using music as the heart of class creation, there are several other factors that go into building a fun, motivational group exercise class. How can instructors combine basic physiology with the beat of the music to deliver a kick-ass class, every time? How does an instructor possibly coach, knowing that music motivates every rider differently, and still create a personalized class experience?

As leaders in the industry - both outdoors and indoors - Stages delivers the most innovative and comprehensive training course on learning the ropes of indoor cycling, motivation, human movement, and building a class around music. Welcome to Stages BEATS!
