really good music is important (totally subjective, I know). My favorite instructors use a variety - old stuff, new stuff, and different genres
I like spin instructors that let me know what to expect: "we're going to add resistance 5 times during this song" or "we'll add resistance 3 times, then take it back to flat, then add 3 times, back to flat, etc." or "we'll go fast, faster and fastest on this song"
I also love 'Tabata sprints' - going all out for a set time, then back to 'normal'
the really good instructors ALWAYS ask if there is anybody new in the class & make sure newbies know how to set up the bike, and proper form
I seriously doubt you'd ever do this, but DO NOT adjust the tension on somebody else's bike. I had an instructor do that to me once. She wasn't even teaching, just taking the class. As she went out to refill her water bottle, she added more tension to my bike. Never said a word to me. WTH????
