IM=X® Cycle/Tower and HRT Certification
The IM=X® Cycle/Tower Program
includes 11 sequences that combine indoor cycling techniques with upper body resistance and stabilization using the IM=X Tower and Ring. This course reviews each of the 11 sequences plus general cycling principles such as positioning clients on the bike, increasing intensity through cadence or resistance, and monitoring workouts by Rate of Perceived Exertion (RPE). The manual offers multiple formats which combine other routines with the 11 sequences; thus there are many hybrid formats to choose from.
The IM=X Cycle/Tower Program provides regular participants with cardiovascular endurance, core muscle strength, good posture, and upper body strength/flexibility — all-in-one workout. Rather than a typical ride; this unique workout keeps participants focused on posture, balance, breathing and core muscle endurance! Participants should be comfortable with regular indoor cycling prior to taking this challenging class.
The IM=X® Heart Rate Training Certification
Note: This course can be divided into two sections: 1) Cycle/Xercizer Hybrids and; 2) Jog Board choreography. The formats can be programmed to range in length from 30-90 minutes; and can be taught alone or in combination with other programs (hybrid workouts). These challenging routines provide cardiovascular benefits and intense calorie burning to the participant.
To complete the IM=X Heart Rate Training Course, instructors must have a current CPR certification. The course comes with a 54-page instruction manual and provides step-by-step instructions and class formats. Additional reading is recommended. This course covers the following topics:
Principles of Heart Rate Training Rate of Perceived Exertion (RPE)
Cycling techniques such as positioning clients on the bike, increasing intensity through cadence or resistance, monitoring workouts by zone training
Jog Board Choreography
