This is the first online training I have done and I would recommend it. Excellent, informative and interesting course
Very thorough, good quality. It's an accredited qualification, with a good reputation.
I also really liked the printed manual. It's something I can refer back to.
A great introduction to the purpose and benefits of indoor cycling along with a good mix of technical knowledge and practical application.
Great technical support and well recognised programme.
5 Stars from me.
Everything was excellent, it was most valuable to be able to complete it all online.
My friend highly recommended the course to me.
I love to cycle and I do it several times a week. I feel it is a strength of mine and people have commented to me that I would make a good instructor. So, I decided to give it a try!
Debbie Kneale was extremely helpful! She was so very kind and understanding!! She made this experience so much more meaningful to me!
I would absolutely recommend it to anyone who is interested in indoor cycling!
Fantastic thankyou so much!!
Fast effective and throrough. The support was most valuable, because I had been let down elsewhere.
Not boring like most online training!
The course was recommended to me. The feedback i received at various points in the course was excellent and the end of topic quizzes were helpful.
The whole course was straightforward and rewarding
The most valuable thing for me was the support i received from Debbie and the team, as they really helped me to understand what i could improve on and also what i was doing well.
I particularly appreciated Debbie taking the time to personally call me to discuss certain points regarding my final practical submission, and i feel that this was extremely helpful and also made me really feel supported.
I think the whole set up of this online course is extremely user friendly and logical in the way it is set out
I really like the way that course information was shared using multi media. It meant that it is great for both visual and aural learners.
I also felt there was a definite personal touch from the course tutors /directors who were obviously monitoring progress and sending reminders to students about deadlines etc
It is informative, very detailed and safety conscious. It is a really thorough course which goes into all aspects of fixed bike cycling. The course content is set out in a logical manner and is clear and concise with supportive videos and photos to help demonstrate important points in fixed bike cycling.
I loved doing the course and feel far more confident about my own fixed bike cycling skills than I did before.
Thank you so much and I truly feel the course has been worth every penny!
I work in the fitness industry and wanted to expand my qualifications so I can get more work.
Everything was perfect.
The practice questions on each unit were especially useful, helped learn what sort of questions would be on the exam and help summarise what I had learnt.
Amazing course, flexible to do in your own time and great customer service from staff .
I really enjoyed the course, thanks a lot !
I’m certified in other group fitness & wanted to teach indoor cycle. Reading reviews for highest rated Cycle certifications, Performance Cycling came up more than once.
The course was excellent, enjoyable and easy to follow.
The way the information was broken into small sections made it very easy to learn.
I wanted a spinning instructor course that you could complete online. This one sounded perfect.
The course was easy to work through, easy to understand and access.
An informative and interesting course.
I certainly didn't think there would be that much information to learn but it was put together in an easy to learn fashion.
The course was recommended to me to add this qualification to my prior exercise qualifications (etm and gym instructor ), so that I can teach indoor cycling classes as part of my professional development.
It is accessible and great value for money.
Overall excellent quality throughout.
The course was quick and easy to follow. The content was superb and each quiz was relative and helped with the learning.
Engaging interactive training which actually makes you think!
I chose this course as I have been teaching indoor cycling for many years and wanted to brush up on technicalities.

I was a bit concerned there wouldn’t be much new for me to learn. But that concern was absolutely overcome on doing it!
It was a great refresher to me, and I even picked up some great bike set up tips!
Great detailed description, class programming based on clientele goals and fitness levels, and big emphasis on how to incorporate proper music energy into class to help fuel the ride.
I appreciate the detail Debbie goes into on bike set up and safety checks.
I love how there is an overview in basic anatomy and using the 3 different energy systems our bodies use in order to program the most efficient ride.
Great course for newbies as well as veteran instructors! There is something to learn for everyone!
Cannot fault this course. An absolute must, it is a very professional easy to follow course.
The bike set up was valuable even after attending multiple classes which have been taken by various instructors nobody has ever told me how to set up the bike and person to the bike.
I also found the class planning very useful and will be implementing it when I start to instruct.
The only thing I felt under pressure with was the length of time for the assessment, I thought I would have more time at the end to check my answers, but found the clock ticking , that said I managed to answer all the questions.
I loved the general feel of the training. The fact it brings in the importance of the mind and relaxation.
It looked a very detailed course with high standards. The fact it can be done online is also a huge advantage.
Although i am a qualified physiotherapist, many courses require an exercise to music qualification as a pre-requisite, which i don't have. The fact i didn't need it for this course was also a bonus.
The course is in depth, easy to understand and follow.
A great course for giving you the skills to provide a safe effective class for clients, whilst at the same time giving you ideas for motivating your class to make it fun and enjoyable.
I would recommend anyone to do this training as you can do in your own time at home especially if you are working another job . Support and resources available are very good.
My employer chose and paid for this course for me.
Everything was excellent. Nicely done, put into chapters which were easy to follow.
It was most valuable to learn about how to set up the bike properly and it was nice to go through some of the things I learned in the past - refreshing:)
I like the little quizzes at the end of every chapter. They helped a lot with revising for the final assessment.
My boss recommended this course to me and I found it Helpful, Easy to complete and would definitely recommend it.
The BPM/RPM section was the most helpful because I would like to run my classes to the beat of the music.
I have done other online fitness courses previously.
Having a young child and a baby, the online course meant i didn't have to travel or find childcare. It was very convenient and i could take it at my own pace.
I really valued the coaching points and refresh knowledge about the training zones.
The course is thorough and very enjoyable. It highlights coaching points that other instructors may not even be aware of!
This course was recommended to me by a friend as the best about.
Fantastic course, everything was excellent.
I have done previous cycling courses but not in the UK and needed a certification to work at a gym in the UK and needed it fast (within 5 days)
Prompt response and personal communication from Debbie was moist valuable. She has gone out of her way to ensure I was able to get my certification with in the short time frame needed.
Content, presentation and support were all excellent.
Having looked at details of the course I realized that this course looked much more thorough than many of the other courses that instructors I know have done.
I really got lot out of the quiz sections of each topic. Before doing the assessment I completed the quiz sections multiple times to re-enforce my learning and to give me some practice in answering questions in that format.
The training is very professional indeed and will give you a firm grounding in what is involved in becoming an indoor cycling instructor.
I am very impressed with this online material. Online training can be hit and miss but this was much better than I was expecting.
I needed online training as I didn't have time to take a day or two to go away to training.
I also thought that online would reduce costs of travel i.e. Trains hotels food etc.
Everything was excellent. The support throughout Debbie's constantly helping you to push through was most valuable.
Overall a great course with structure and support from beginning to end
Excellent course. I think the safety and correct set up of the bikes aspect of the course was the most valuable to ensure I can lead safe and effective classes.<br />
I would describe this training as an effective way of expanding and enhancing there knowledge in a way that fits around their lifestyles. I have already recommended your course to the sports teacher at school so he can lead classes for the pupils too.
This is the first online training I have done. Everything was excellent and it was very convenient and informative.
Out of all the online courses out there I chose this one because it is VERY clear a lot of thought, effort and time was dedicated to provide the best education on Indoor Cycling, something I appreciate.
I've been teaching studio base classes for many years, this course reminded that I may have taken a few things for granted and needed to polish up some areas in my teaching and presentation.
It's perfect for busy people, very clear and thorough. The fact you can watch/listen to the slides and demos as many times as you want is great, especially for people with short attention span like myself :-)
The content is excellent. The training is easy to manage as the online aspect allows you to work at your own pace and fit it in around a busy schedule.
My husband did research and surprised me with the course as a gift.
I live in Dubai, so I could get good effective training in the comfort of my own home.
The course was easy to follow, user friendly and thorough and the support was excellent
Being able to study at home at a time convenient to me was most valuable.
Also I found it good to be able to listen to the slides as well as reading them and also found the videos good to watch . It kept the training interesting as it wasn't just reading .
Excellent in all key areas of personal learning development.
The course content and on-line support was excellent.
It's very in-depth, easy to understand and very informative!
I needed something short and flexible. So being able to do it online at my pace and take the exam also online was a good option for me to choose this training.
It is cost effective, Flexible and easy to read through and understand the context.
I particularly liked the quiz questions and also where it showed you to go back and read through if you got it wrong.
I think all round was a very useful training.
Thank you for creating such a platform.
I chose this course as cycling is an interest to me and I wanted to teach.
It is the first online training I have done and the A&P was most valuable, to have a better understanding how the body works.
The course was easy to learn in your own time and all aspects were 5 Star - Excellent value, content, presentation, assessments and support.
The course was really engaging and very clear.
The content was well structured, logical and I could progress at my own speed which was the most important for me.
I really enjoyed the Level 1 and I look forward to working through the Level 2 training.
Thank you! Loved it!
One of the instructors at the gym I work at recommended it to me.
The content was excellent and in depth and I was able to work it around my busy schedule.
As this is my first attempt at online training, I did not know what to expect. I imaged it would be challenging as there is no "human contact"!
However, the study materials, visual online clips and constant support, made it feel like I was never alone.
Exceeded my expectations by a whole lot. Learning was fun and easy.
The course is informative, easy to follow, the quizes really help to make sure you have understood the main points.
The most valuable was the set up of the bikes, and pre-safety checks for beginners (the beginners seem to be forgotten in most classes and are expected to keep up with the rest of us).
I took this course primarily to re qualify as a spinning instructor. I do not think it could be improved. Most valuable was going back to basics and re emphasising core skills
I found the course very enjoyable. The notes and videos covered everything that I needed to know. The course was presented in a way that was easy to follow and digest. I liked the fact that I was able to learn at my own pace and at a time that suited me. Thank you Debbie and the team!
I am a road cyclist, I know how to ride and push myself hard I had been to "Spinning" indoor cycling classes before I did this course but found out they I had been doing many things incorrect.
While i was doing this course my road cycling improved my training became more focused and i found that because i was now doing things correct my results were also improving.
I think if you follow the course and understand why you are doing what your doing as an instructor this will be passed on to your students, good instructors that come from this course will get more and more people in there classes why? because there doing thing correct, people can have fun exercise at the same time.
Don't be putt off this course because your first language is not English. If your interested in this sport then you can learn and become a qualified instructor using Performance cycling why because its more than an online learning web site its real people who want you to become as good as they are. I think the people or person who started this site, started it because she was tired of poor instructors teaching things wrong. Yon notice this very early when you study here.
Nothing was more import and than the student understanding what he or she was learning.
I think all that run this online course try there hardest to make learning easy and fun. Thats a great thing because you also want to be as good as they are and I think will be after completing the course.
Absolutely brilliant course with first class support. Really excellent.
I particularly liked the calm and gentle videos and spoken words. Very relaxing and helped me to learn with confidence.
A very well rounded, fast tracked knowledge base with first class support. Thank you very much for an enjoyable and informative learning experience.
I chose this training after I became inspired by a Performance cycling Instructor after participating in her classes.
The classes were entertaining, yet provided the kind of workout I was searching for to maintain my outdoor riding skills. After researching several options of become an instructor, I felt that Performance Cycling provided the most detailed training.
The course provided me with the knowledge and skills that I need to be an effective instructor as well as an education that I can apply to enhance my personal training and cycling skills.
The most valuable aspect for me was the feedback and questions from Debbie. I felt Debbie was great at assuring that I didn't just learn the material, but that I understood it thoroughly and could apply it!
I will recommend Performance cycling for anyone aspiring to be an instructor.
I also think that performance cycling is ideal training for outdoor cyclists. My main purpose for indoor cycling classes was to be able to continue to train during the winter months when I couldn't cycle outdoors. It worked - I completed my fist metric century ride this spring and will try for a century at the end of this month.
I have thoroughly enjoyed studying in this way. The website is easy to navigate with tremendous course content.
Living in quite a remote part of the UK I found that this was the perfect way to attain the qualification I needed but from the comfort of my own home and nearby facilities.
Support from Debbie was just an email or phone call away and she is just such a positive person that you feel inspired to really work hard at it.
The feedback given by Debbie was most valuable. She is obviously a professional in her field and so therefore her comments are well judged and fair. As a result I have learnt so much which I can now carry over to teaching in my classes.
I am already a fitness instructor and the course helped me to refresh the general knowledge of physiology, anatomy, types of training and other necessary information essential for the fitness training.
It also helped me to understand the biomechanical aspects of the cycling training. I could correct my body alignment and focus on proper body movement when I was taking my classes.
The course taught me how to get ready for the cycling classes as a participant and how to prepare myself as an instructor. It also taught me what are the points I have to focus on as an instructor during the class.
I would like to thank you very much for all the support, the prompt responses to my emails and the wonderful course.
I really enjoyed studying with You.
Course exceeded my expectations. Keep it up!
What was most valuable was dealing with real people! :-D
Interaction was great and i felt like i had real support all the way through.
The course was well laid out, smart,and easy to follow.
The online system was really stable and didn't have any down time which could have been annoying.
I felt as though somebody was there all the time, and response time to queries was incredibly efficient.
It's been a great learning and the mistakes I made along the way have been reinforcement of the thoroughness of your course.
5-Stars from me! A superb experience.
An extremely personable and professional support team made it an extra pleasure to complete.
During my training I felt that the help recieved was outstanding. The coaching and complete attention to detail made me a better instructor. I would recomend you taking the course if you plan to cycle. Thanks Debbie outstanding job.
The course content was fantastic and easy to follow and covered much more than I expected.
Throughout the whole of the Performance Cycling Course I felt in safe, reassuring, professional and kind hands. No question was regarded as stupid or uneccessary. The course content was brilliant and well presented and the support given by Debbie Kneale the course tutor is second to none.
The fact I could do it at my own pace and not have to take it all in in a couple of days or as some courses do in one day was a bonus for me.
I did wonder never having done a course online how the practicle assessment would be done but that was handle with your usual professionalism and with all the helpful pointers was a lot easier to manage than I expected.
I would recommend this course to anyone young or old the Performance Cycling Online Course is the best thing I have ever done!
I am proud to say I am now a Performance Cycling Instructor.
The online content was presented in a logical,clear and effective way.
Tutor support was truely awesome! Very clear and detailed explanations were provided for even the smallest query I had, which made me feel valued and encouraged me to do better.
Even though it's an online course, it provides enough opportunity to apply everything practically in a real class situation.
I would definately reccommend this course to any person looking to become an instructor, but may not have access to doing it live.
