Course Descriptions

Level 1

Level 1 is predominately hands-on training with actual cyclists and focuses on the contact points of the bike, specifically the foot/pedal interface (the foundation of a bike fit), pelvis/saddle, and hands/handlebars.  The class starts with our highly regarded online course and manual. No other fitting school offers this type of education prior to hands-on training. The Level 1 class is geared toward fitters working within a shop, in their own studio, as a coach, etc.

Clinical Level 1

Clinical Level 1 is dedicated to healthcare professionals’ hands-on skills working with actual road cyclists. It focuses on the contact points of the bike, specifically the foot/pedal (the foundation for all bike fits), pelvis/saddle, and hand/handlebar interfaces. The class starts with our highly regarded online course and manual. No other fitting school offers this type of education prior to hands-on training. The Level 1 class is geared toward new fitters or fitters looking to add to their current repertoire of skills working within a shop, clinic, in their own studio, as a coach, etc.

Level 2

Level 2 is one of the most advanced courses in bike fitting. The side view angles for triathlon fit are introduced as the course builds on the foundation of Level 1. The focus begins shifting towards the pelvis as the crossroads for cycling movement. Leg length, saddle fit, and other advanced fitting issues are addressed. Expect to be challenged as the class builds to what is affectionately known as “Hell on Wheels” which will challenge and test your skills as an advanced fitter.

Level 2 requires the fitter to have completed level 1 and the Online Course. It is also strongly recommended to have performed at least 20 bike fits after completion of level 1.

Clinical Level 2

Level 2 is dedicated to triathlon fit and builds on the foundation of road fit.  This level requires the clinician to have taken Level One and completed AT LEAST 20 bike fits since completion of Level One.  Expect to be challenged.  This includes a section of Grand Rounds and a Practical Examination affectionately known as, “Hell on Wheels.”  Completion of this class will test all of your skills as a clinical bike fitter.  Upon completion, you will have the skills to successfully fit any cyclist that walks in your clinic door.

Advanced Foot-Pedal Interface

This advanced course is dedicated to hands-on skills working with cyclists and focuses on the foot/pedal (the foundation for all bike fits). This class includes our coveted manual “When the Foot Meets the Pedal” and our highly regarded on-line course hosted by MedBridge Education, “The Foot/Pedal Interface.” No other fitting school offers this type of education prior to hands-on training. The Advanced Foot-Pedal course is geared toward new or experienced fitters looking to add to their current repertoire of skills working within a shop, clinic, in their own studio, as a coach, etc.

Customer Experiences

BikeFit education represents the gold standard in cyclist fitting. The vast majority of fitting systems are just that, systems. These systems place the emphasis on joint angles and adjusting the bicycle to the cyclist, digital versions of traditional methodology. Instead of focusing on adjusting a piece of machinery, BikeFit moves the emphasis onto what is important, the cyclist and their individual contact point needs. The BikeFit process begins where other systems conclude. BikeFit is more than a system, it is a comprehensive education in fit that prepares the fitter in a way that other systems cannot. A fitter that puts BikeFit education into practice, truly understands their client’s unique needs and asymmetries. If you desire to become a fitter and not a “position salesman”, then BikeFit education is for you.

“To improve at something, one needs to practice. Therefore, to be a better bike fitter, one needs to do more bike fits.”

-Paul Swift, BikeFit Founder, Master Bike Fitting Education Coordinator

“I really enjoyed the course and left inspired not only to start getting cyclists in the door for their bike fits, but also to get out on my bike more.”

-Ann Jeffrey PT, DPT

“I feel much more confident doing bike fits now that I’ve learned how to properly adjust the foot-pedal interface.”

-Coach Powell

“I want to say a huge thank you for the most enlightening and educational 2-day course. I thoroughly enjoyed it and gained so much knowledge.  I would definitely be interested in coming to the next course in November.  Thank you once again.”

-Sandra Anstey
