“A million thanks for your recent day of training . What a totally great investment. Spinn-off is very impressed with all the content of the day and the wonderful way it was delivered.
We were delighted with the on bike training method you use ,and we can see the results in practice every day. I think every indoor cycle teacher should spend at least one day on your training course and it would hugely help all those bouncers and hamster wheels out there.
Spinn-off lives your principals . We will always make your training our first port of call for our new teachers. Volocity is rock solid in cycle based training. From cycle to music to communication to humanity to marketing…Well done . There can’t be enough certification in indoor cycling yours is excellent.”

“Academy of Exercise Studies is excited to be delivering the Velocity Cycling program, to learners on our diploma program and those already working in the Health and Wellness Industry.
Neil Troutman has a wealth of Industry experience having honed his practical skills on the gym floor, and delivering classes but also working his way up to management level. Neil had 15 years experience below his belt before setting up and running the Velocity Program and his passion for studio cycling is evident in his course delivery and content.
There are few left in the industry who stick as closely to their own sound knowledge and values on exercise prescription and for this reason he will go far.”
– Helen Wilson | Director Academy of Exercise Studies

“Just wanted to say a big thank you to Neil for his latest training course. I now have two fantastic inhouse cycle instructors, both confident and enthusiastic teachers pulling in the class numbers and getting great member feedback. Both boys have loved your course. I’ll be sending you my new recruits to train up very soon.
Thanks again Neil.”

“I became a spinning instructor on the Velocity Indoor Cycling Course. Neil Troutman was very inspiring and his knowledge endless. I felt like I was learning from the best. As a group we were lucky enough to take part in one of his classes. As a spinning instructor, Neil inspires great confidence in his clients through his “motivating” choice of music, the structure, pace and tempo of his class…He understands how to bring out the most in his clients, without pushing them too hard. In short, if you feel like you’ve been spinning your wheels, there is no better person to get you moving forward (while stationary)…than Neil!”

“Having been a keen indoor cyclist for six years, across a few gyms, I had experienced a wide gulf in the quality of training, Neil’s was simply the highest standard class I had undertaken, it is always clearly planned to music, incredibly challenging and provides a real sense of achievement upon completion.
His technical knowledge of cycling was also way in excess of anything I had heard before in a gym environment. When the opportunity to lead an indoor cycling class at my employer came about earlier this year and I knew Neil had his own program there was only one choice for me, due to his proven track record of high quality class delivery. The training program was centred on safety, ensuring your riders enjoy the class, making it suitable for all levels and containing both technical elements and teaching tips.
I found the section on planning the ride and investing the time to devise a route and then music to support it really inspiring, having spent many hours on bikes with instructors who clearly hadn’t put much (if any) thought into the ride and soundtrack. I have now delivered ten classes, seven with my work colleagues and three at my local gym, where I have joined the cover list for indoor cycling – I feel confident that I have the knowledge to teach safely and effectively for riders of all levels.”
