Cycling: The Name Game

This is a Cycling pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 15648)

Has anyone ever tried playing a game in class? Cycling is the perfect place to add games and have some fun in class. Here is one of my cycling classes favorite game...

The Name Game

The name game is a great way for everyone to get to know each other and build a sense of belonging within an indoor cycling group. Start by going around the group and have everyone say their name out loud. I always pick on someone and say if anyone forgets a name call on (insert name) and name someone in your group who likes a challenge.

How the game works: Everyone starts off in a standing position at a percentage between 40-60%. The instructor begins the name game by calling approximately one third of the names in the class. Everyone whose name is called must drop to their seat and sprint at 20-30%. The sprinters continue to sprint until they need a break (between 10-45 seconds). In order for them to come back up to the standing position at the original tension and have a break, they have to call someone's name and then that person drops and sprints.
