Cycle Teacher Training

Our Cycle Teacher Training program is unlike any others on the market - and it's located right here in Pittsburgh! This 2 month in depth training will provide you with all the knowledge and experience you need to create and lead amazing cycle classes and make a difference in the lives of your students.

Most trainings you'll see are less than 8 hours spent skimming the surface of some of the things you need to know to provide an impactful experience for you students. Our program is 60 hours of training.

We know because we've taken those trainings. We've walked out of those doors feeling terrified to lead a class and not sure what to do next.

With our program, you'll step onto the instructor bike knowing that you have everything you need to create an impactful experience for your students. You'll learn to create classes for more than just burning calories - but for the physical and mental changes that you already know cycling can create. Imagine sharing all of that with a room full of students.

Whether you are looking to lead cycle classes in 2023, deepen your connection to your own ride, or build your confidence by understanding the details and dynamics of a cycling class - this training is for you.

Why they've Signed up

Hear from graduated instructors on why they decided to sign up for training.

"For years, I have contemplated enrolling in cycle teacher training (CTT) because of the enjoyment I get from being on the bike.  But I wondered if the quick training would really prepare me to instruct a class and be confident in doing so.  How would I know how to create a class from warm-up to cool down?  How do you set up a bike comfortably for people of all shapes and sizes?  Is my form a good example for those watching so that we’re cycling safely?  Would the investment be worthwhile?  These and many other questions would flood my mind and deterred me from pursuing a program.
When I found out about the CTT being offered by Triangle Foundry (TF), I was instantly interested in learning more.  After reviewing the details and talking further with Karyna, I knew that the TF CTT was different and it was time for me to commit to the program and myself.  Here are some things that stood out and attracted me to take the leap:
  • The program’s structure is conducive to building the knowledge, skills, and confidence needed to successfully instruct a class.  I like that the CTT provides a thorough curriculum that covers a variety of topics from anatomy to bike setup to curating a playlist.  We all know the positive difference a knowledgable instructor can make from the moment you walk into the studio, through class, and post-class.

  • The timing over three months (60 hours, 5 non-consecutive weekends) allows for time to truly understand what it takes to be a good instructor while still providing flexibility to fulfill the commitment as part of my normal, busy schedule.
  • Beyond having Karyna, who is an awesome instructor, lead the training, I really like that other members of the TF team will be contributing, too.  Having attended virtual and in-person classes at the studio from several instructors, having them as additional mentors and CTT teachers will be a priceless resource.
  • The opportunity to teach before training is complete is a huge benefit.  This will help to build the confidence that’s crucial to delivering a good and fun class for the instructor and students.
TF’s mission is to build connection, community, and confidence.  Their CTT program is just another example of how they are fulfilling that mission and delivering quality services.  I am thrilled to be able to (finally) pursue CTT with one of the best studios in Pittsburgh.  I look forward to all that I’ll learn and sharing that with others, too."
