Debt Management
Limited Capacity seats available

Our energy, much like our finances, have to be managed. In fact, if you want more credit (fitness) , you have to go into debt (oxygen) in the first place, speculate to accumulate. Too much debt and you're in trouble! You need to demonstrate your ability to work with debt and manage it before being afforded more credit.
Sure you need to take a few risks to move forward, but calculated risks - not gambling. You can't just smash every training session, you need to balance that with recovery and planning!
This ride will take you into debt. How far into debt are you willing to go? Do you have enough credit to recover, repay your debt and go again? Like so many things in life, it's all about your BALANCE...!!!

Soft Tissue Regeneration Strategies with Power Plate

Often neglected and overlooked, recovery is now being highlighted as the missing link in truly maximizing human performance and function.

However, the good news is Power Plate provides a time efficient and effective recovery strategy that can be easily implemented and planned to restore cell harmony and optimize your client’s wellbeing.
This practical session will explore hands on techniques to quickly increase circulation and fluid flow, enhancing connective tissue hydration and restoring freedom of movement whilst ‘relaxing’ the nervous system and promoting a state of recovery and regeneration.

Small Bites
Limited Capacity seats available

Mountains will wait but they do not care about you. Sometimes you must accept that the climb is bigger than you and patiently take small bites out of it. Other times, you can conquer the climb with some outright tenacity and determination. The psychology of a climb changes with the terrain. The psychology of the rider changes only with their outlook on that terrain. Will you take small bites or mouthfuls in this epic ride?

Beat of the Drum

Rhythm has long been used in tribal cultures to generate trance states in healing, in ritual and in ceremony.

No riding is involved, just a chance to lay back and relax and journey into your deep subconscious to bring you in tune for the rest of the weekend. No experience necessary, just an open mind and heart.

Changing Perceptions
Limited Capacity seats available

Do you see exercise as a chore? Something like a work task that has to be done, despite your own desires? If so, there may be a chance you “compensate” yourself later on with reward-type foods, such as desserts. Obviously it would be best if you chose activities that you like and find fun. People who enjoy the activities they do to exercise tend to exercise more and stick with it longer. But what if you don’t really like any kind of physical activity? One way you can change your perception of what you are doing is by linking it to things that matter to you. If you are just exercising because it’s a chore you do, that is the least motivating perspective you can have. Try thinking and writing about why exercising matters to you and how it connects to that which you hold most important.

Volume v Intensity
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Let's face it, who has the time to train 5-6 times per week or 2 hours or more per session? Maybe you as a keen athlete or trainer and perhaps a small number of your client or members? Most though are juggling careers, kids and other interests and commitments perhaps only managing 2-3 sessions a week at best. So in the absence of volume can we simply replace it with intensity and still improve performance and move toward our goals? HIIT and short duration high intensity classes seem to be the trend. Can intensity replace volume and is that perhaps a better way to go about your training anyway? An argument for both no doubt - but how do you do it?

Often misunderstood power plate and whole body vibration has been in gyms around the world for over a decade. Take a deep dive through the misconceptions and uncertainty to identify the unique environment of vibration and how it stimulates the body’s natural reflexes, increasing muscle activation and enhancing any movement typically performed on the ground. Finally we will explore the importance of authentic, 3-D movement as being the secret sauce for practical application to ensure you and your clients get the best possible results.

Anti-Gravity Movement
Limited Capacity seats available

Things have a habit of coming back round. As an example after decades of aerobics, jogging and chronic cardio..... old school strength and conditioning is back!
Remember back in the day being told sit up straight and stop slouching? Well maybe our parents and grandparents were right enough! Gravity is working on us all the time! As obvious as that sounds, perhaps we've lost sight of that very simple fact? And so over the years we've allowed gravity to act on our posture (forward head and rounded shoulders) without fighting back. That fight becomes even more difficult when external weight is applied in our training. It's a different way of looking at it but maybe that's not a bad thing...?

Grand Finale - Origins Ride (90min)
Limited Capacity seats available

The Spinning® Program was created and given wings to fly 25 years ago by Johnny G and John Baudhuin. From humble beginnings and a simple approach, this indoor cycling phenomenon gave a group of people who loved both music and activity the opportunity to take meditation into movement, to take adversity and make it an opportunity, to take a bike and make it their own ride. we track back to the basics and let you ride with passion, with energy and in celebration to the ORIGINS of the GLOBAL SPINNING® FAMILY.
