About the NSCR

The NSCR stands for the National Studio Cycling Register.  It is a register of all the instructors that have been training to teach indoor cycling, studio cycling and spinning™.  Set up in 1997 when spinning was first launched in the UK,  the NSCR stands for, not only a register but quality training courses and qualifications.  The Phase 1 course was the first independently run course not linked to bike manufacturers.  This has been positive and allowed us to develop innovative, scientific and fact based education, creating solutions for all fitness professionals.  Ongoing development continues as we continue to lead by example and set the pace.
