What certifications are needed for Spinning Instructors?

Obtaining certification as an indoor cycling instructor mostly takes training and a particular level of physical fitness. 

Experience-wise, most indoor cycling teachers come from either a general fitness background such as an aerobics class. 

So, if you’re interested in pursuing indoor cycling certification, you should stay fit, purchase the proper indoor cycling shoes, and invest in a solid workout wardrobe. You will also want to obtain a certificate in CPR and first aid as is required for most gym jobs.

There are resources online to obtain a spin class instructor certification, but it is not necessary.
