Head coach for Next Level Customised Coaching, Brendan Erskine, is managing a Spinning/Wind Training Studio in Albany. Previously called 'Urban Spin', recently it has been renamed as Next Level SPIN.
It is a great little studio that can accomodate up to 20 Indoor Cyclists. It is located at 15B Douglas Alexander Parade (next to the original Mozaik Cafe). It is set up with 11 new Spinning bikes and 10 Wind Trainers for those that would prefer to use their own bicycle.
Until recently Brendan was the Senior Spin Instructor for the Workshop Gym in Birkenhead. Brendan started the Spinning Programme there and built it over several years to achieving an excellent number of regular ‘spinners’ with challenging, fun and structured spin classes.
Brendan has also been been taking 90 minute Wind Training Classes for the North Harbour Triathlon Club (NZ’s largest and most successful Triathlon Club).
You may or may not be aware that ‘Spinning’ is the first, the creator of group Indoor Cycling. A ‘Spinning’ class is generally set up as a ‘journey’ allowing you to visualise being on a particular ride. This particular ride may include components such as hills, sprints, fast flats, working on the front of the bunch etc.
As a spinning instructor Brendan will endeavour to ensure you are set up correctly on the bike and get the most out of the class no matter your level of experience and fitness. Music is set to accompany the ride, this adds to the experience and the enjoyment of the class. The music fits the tempo of the particular part of the ride and (perhaps more importantly!) is appropriate/enjoyable to the majority of people attending the class.
Most of the classes at Next Level SPIN will closely fit the spin model (as described above and are 45 minutes in duration), some of the classes will be longer and more structured, more the 'Wind Training' model for specific road cycling or triathlon training purposes.
The current timetable is:
Monday 6:30pm with Ross
Tuesday 6:30pm with Brendan
Wednesday 6am with Brendan
Thursday 6:30pm - Longer Class (75 minutes) with Brendan
Saturday 8am - Longer Class (60 minutes) with Brendan
