I took over a class a month ago and I'm really strugling with it. I have been teaching a couple years and have six other class that are lots of fun and a couple are even full every week. But with this class I have several issues.
First - The Spinner Elite bikes have a safty devise that allows the pedals to stop while the fly wheel is spinning. Makes standing with a smooth pedal stroke very difficult without maxium resistance.
Second - This class is mostly large women who seem to do what thay want. Several wear their own iPods, one seems to do her own workout pushing just as hard as she can. Seveal walked out in the middle of class to get a drink from the fountin. They did come back. Some do not seem to speak english very well if at all. And I'm scared to death I'm going to push them way too hard and give one a heart attack.
I'm starting to regret taking this class but I want to make it work if I can.
