Head coach for Next Level Customised Coaching, Brendan Erskine, is the owner/manager of a Spinning/Wind Training Studio on the North Shore. Next Level SPIN is a studio set up for the sole purpose of Spinning and Wind Training classes. 16F Link Drive, Wairau Park on the 1st Floor (above Waitemata Back Care Beds).
The studio can accomodate up to 22 Indoor Cyclists. Great sound, good ventilation, bathroom facilities and set up with 16 Spinning bikes and 6 Wind Trainers (you can also use your own Wind Trainer) for those that like to use their own bicycle.
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.
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 (At the time - NZ’s largest Triathlon Club).
The current timetable is:
