Indoor Cycling Society is proud to award Fer Orci, the 2020 Indoor Cycling Instructor of the year.
We asked Fer Orci a few questions:
Indoor Cycling Society: Tell us a little about yourself?
Who is Fer Orci? She’s an Industrial engineer that found her passón as an indoor cycling coach, evolving through the years to head coach of her team in Rode Cycle Merida, and Head Coach Manager of Rode Cycle. Fer Orci has been teaching indoor cycling classes for more than 15 years, starting out as a spinning instructor, and then becoming a certified indoor cycling coach.
She lives in Merida, Yucatan in Mexico and has been a part of Rode Cycle since the Brand was created in 2017. She has also a passion for painting and editing videos, which helps her staying creative, which she believes is one of her strengths as a coach. With the years she has been able to create a great community in her city that has fallen in love with indoor cycling as much as her, where everyone feels welcome and secure, where everyone grows and gets surrounded by people that are always trying to do a Little better, to be a Little healthier and in general to work on their best versión of themselves .
Indoor Cycling Society: How did you get into the fitness lifestyle?
I FOUND FITNESS: Indoor cycling has always been a very important part of my life, I started teaching spinning when I was 16 years old, and since then I fell in Love with it .
I never imagined it would become a full-time job, I would say one of my greatest achievements in life has been working full-time doing what I love the most, as the Head Coach Manager of Rode Cycle.
Indoor Cycling Society: What is your favorite part of teaching Indoor Cycling?
FAVORITE PART OF MY CLASS: Im not sure I have a favorite part in class, as much as I have a favorite feeling. When you are riding in a dark room, with amazing music and full of amazing people (because everyone is amazing in their own way) that are in full disposition to enjoy, to feel free, to connect with the energy created in that instant inside that studio. This are unexpected and amazing moments where everyone is moving as one, feeling the energy around, getting goosebumps, feeling the rush, smiling, in touch with everyone else, creating magic. That is my favorite part of every single class, it is not planned and will always hit you when you least expected
Indoor Cycling Society: What advice would you give students?
ADVICE FOR NEW STUDENTS: The greatest rides are the ones where you are able to share yourself with others, make sure when you’re up there, to enjoy the moment and be yourself, because if you are able to open your heart to your riders, they will open their hearts in return, and only then will everyone feel the magic.
