COURSE INFORMATION FOR 2019:

SCOPE OF COURSES
Formerly known as Cycle Lab Academy, Cycle Pro Academy is run by leading experts in the Indoor Cycle Industry. All courses at the Academy equip the individual with the theoretical and practical skills required to become a top professional in their field. Cycle Pro Indoor Cycle Instructors are qualified to teach at any of the private and corporately owned studios both locally and abroad. There is a demand in the small gyms and gym chains for well-trained instructors who are able not only to offer their classes technically sound teaching but also sessions with an element of entertainment or “entertrainment” as we prefer to call it. Further qualifications in the form of the Advanced Instructor’s Workshops (new innovative teaching techniques) also allow for individuals to earn better salaries and improve their ratings when being graded. Many individuals use short courses such as these to launch their careers into the Fitness Industry.
Cycle Pro Academy also specialises in Wattbike Instructor and Power training for individuals and Group Trainers.

DURATION
Courses offered are 1-3 days in duration and consist of seminars and practical work presented by a team of top fitness professionals from around the country. Although most courses begin with a solid theoretical grounding the emphasis Cycle Pro Academy places is on practical application and rehearsal of concepts. For this reason all training is supplemented with microteaching sessions (video playback and analysis) in order to ensure that practical mastery of the concepts has been well cemented. Course material is provided in a user-friendly format so that scientific jargon is well explained in accessible terms. All courses emphasise practical application and extensive interaction between coaches and students.

EXAMINATION/ASSESSMENT
In order to ensure that the extremely high standards of the academy are met and maintained all candidates undergo a theory and practical examination. External examiners and moderators are utilized to ensure quality and impartiality. Specific Outcomes and Assessment Criteria will be covered in detail with students on day two of the training. Students who do not meet the minimum requirement are taken through the areas where competence has not yet been achieved and afforded the opportunity of re-entering the examination at a later date at a cost of R150-00 per module.

CERTIFICATION
Certification takes place 1 week after examination where students are presented with a Cycle Pro Academy Qualification in their respective field. There are currently Cycle Pro Academy certified instructors working in many countries outside South Africa. Academy currently has students working in London, Germany, Dubai, Tanzania, Mauritius, Lesotho, Swaziland, Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Mozambique as well as on numerous cruise ships.

PREREQUISITES
No prior qualifications are necessary for admittance into courses however some level of experience on an indoor cycle is recommended. Also where candidates do not yet have a matric certificate they may be required to undergo an interview before gaining admittance. Good instructors are characterized by an openness to learn, passion for people, fitness and music as well as an outgoing confident personality. Whilst a fitness test does not form a part of the entrance criteria, students who have never done Indoor Cycling before would be well advised to attempt to attain an appropriate fitness level for courses before enrolling. Attendance of a number of different classes presented by a variety of instructors will be helpful for prospective instructors to get an idea of various instructing styles before undergoing the training personally.

Cycle Pro Academy is proudly associated with a number of strategic partners and affiliates. These brands play a major role in assisting with growth and development in the Indoor Cycling Industry. They are amongst others Technogym, Virgin Active, Institute of Fitness Professionals, eta, My Programme Generator, Wattbike and REPSSA.
