What do you all think? Someone threw that idea out for my class since we do intervals--using the spinning bikes next door for 10-155 minutes and then coming back. I'm afraid it would ruin the continuity in the class, plus it would be hard to herd people back and forth between two rooms.

I'd be afraid that you would lose people during the transition.

Yeah, that's what I was thinking, too. Can't give the participants a chance to escape from my class during the hour!

I did a class that was called "Triple Play" and was Cycle, Strength and Yoga. The Spin bikes were in the same room as everything else though so no worries about people ducking out as you are transitioning!

I went to a class like that, once.

Yeah, I think same room is the key. I'll bet that would be a fun format, though. I really don't want to teach cycle yet, though I'm certified.

I love interval training, too, and that's my regular class. This one participant wants to throw in cycling as an interval which would be hard to manage logistically.

We do that at my club - The class is called, Fast Track. 30min on the bike and 30min circuit. We don't have to leave the room though.

Welcome to gym rats! It would be great if we could stay in the same room but there isn't enough space. How is the class? Do many people go?

Jean,

I like the format but the middle 20 minutes seems like a lot of work to set up for just 20 minutes.

Instead of many stations, could you alternate a couple things
