The indoor cycling scene in Washington has seriously blown up in the past year, with two studios celebrating their one-year anniversaries in Arlington and Bethesda and another DC-based studio opening next week. But the high-intensity workouts would be nothing without the equally intense instructors, who take on the role of both personal trainer and deejay during each session.

If you’ve ever wondered what it takes to sit at the head of the class, now you can find out by becoming a Schwinn-certified indoor cycling instructor at Revolve Fitness’s class this Sunday. Schwinn Master Rachel Buschert will lead the eight-hour class, which begins at 11:30 AM.

Students will be trained in all aspects of indoor cycling, including how to fit a bike to each individual, cycling physiology and mechanics, proper technique, class design, and class scheduling. They’ll also receive a cycling manual, to serve as a reference guide in the future.

But it won’t just be the nuts and bolts of indoor cycling. Be prepared for two high-intensity workouts led by Buschert, who travels nationally to certify instructors in the Schwinn indoor cycling program. Currently, there are other programs that also certify cycling instructors. However, the Schwinn program is thought to be one of the top options. “Schwinn is known to be highly specialized and recommended even if you hold other certifications,” says Alexandra Gardner of Revolve Fitness.
