I wrote a blog post summarizing 10 great bicycle side hustles. This is the 9th one. 


Spin classes are huge and becoming a spin class instructor would be a great side hustle. Spin classes are a popular form of exercise that offer a variety of benefits, including improved cardiovascular health, increased strength and endurance, and weight loss. If you're a certified spin instructor, teaching spin classes is a great way to share your love of cycling with others and make some extra money on the side.

Here are some tips for teaching spin classes as a side hustle:

  • Find a gym or fitness studio that's hiring spin instructors. You can search for job postings online or contact local gyms and studios directly.
  • Prepare for your interview. Be sure to research the gym or studio you're interviewing with and practice your teaching skills.
  • Create a dynamic and engaging class plan. Your class plan should include a variety of drills and exercises to keep your students challenged and motivated.
  • Be a positive and supportive instructor. Encourage your students to work hard and achieve their fitness goals.
  • Promote your classes. Let your friends, family, and social media followers know that you're teaching spin classes. You can also create a website or blog to promote your classes and build a following.

Here are some additional tips for success:

  • Get to know your students. Learn their names, fitness goals, and any injuries or limitations they may have. This will help you to create a class that is safe and effective for everyone.
  • Be flexible. Be prepared to adjust your class plan on the fly if needed. For example, if you have a lot of new students in class, you may need to spend more time explaining the basics.
  • Be positive and enthusiastic. Your energy and enthusiasm will be contagious and will help to motivate your students.
  • Have fun! Spin classes are supposed to be enjoyable, so make sure that you're having fun too.
