Magic Coaching Minute: The Warm-Up

Welcome to our new segment at ICA. We are going to provide a Magic Coaching Minute every month on various topics to further  educate and demonstrate coaching and the technical aspects of form and physiology in indoor cycling.

In this one, Jennifer and I are enjoying the USA Cycling Pro Challenge, and while in the team village before Friday’s time trial, were inspired to talk about the importance of warming up.


  1. Good stuff. Opening energy systems and muscle preparation not withstanding, I’m having trouble getting used to Tom with no hair.

    Perhaps an on screen wig. 🙂

    1. Maybe take that opening one step further to include my lack of hair 😉

      There will be no wig (unless I’m requested to do Richard Simmons again). So you will just have to deal with it… 🙂

  2. Great stuff – thank you! I teach spin a few times a week and have begun doing Time Trials once/month on a 15 K track without a warm up – will try one next time – thanks!

    1. Thanks Chelsea. Let us know how it goes!!
