Motivator Applications Now Open

January 21, 2020

We’ve begun our search for the eight Spin instructors that will lead the eight hours of the first Spin For Life! More than keeping our participants engaged and active through the hour, our Motivators will act as emcees – guiding everyone through the hour, introducing special segments, and ensuring we all know that when it comes to cancer, we’re in this together.

Spin For Life is striving to make all of our events immersive and theatrical in nature. Getting a great workout is certainly a priority, but that will be woven among other elements that remind everyone why they are there. It’s going to be more than a spin class, it’s going to be an experience and our Motivators will be leading the way.

We are asking a lot of the people that we’ll select for these eight positions but we’re not going to leave them hanging. Our successful applicants will become consultants with our creative team. We’ll all work together to shape the hours, select music, and build something that participants will talk about for months. Plus, Spin For Life will help train the Motivators in how to act as an emcee while they’re doing what they do best – Motivating!

All styles of spin instructing experience are welcome to apply as our participants span a wide range of abilities and experience. This is a paid position and will require time not only on our event day but also in the lead up to it.

Don’t be shy! Let us know why you think you’re the perfect fit for Spin For Life.

Spin For Life values inclusion and removing barriers to entry for participation; any skill level, beginner to pro, is encouraged to join. There’s no need for any special equipment or gear – alongside 180 spin bikes, Spin For Life is equipped with low-impact floor and arm pedal machines. Spinners are in a controlled indoor environment where the risk is low, medical support is always close-at-hand, and the weather won’t affect the experience. Our participants’ physical and fundraising commitments are also designed to be manageable challenges: one hour of sweat with a minimum $1,000 raised for charity.


Thanks to our growing list of like-minded sponsors and patrons, 100% of donations stay with the Canadian Cancer Society. With each event, Spin For Life aims to raise a minimum of $1.44 million with new host cities being added every year for a ten year goal of $180 million. Tax receiptable donations can be allocated to any of three categories: Clinical Trials, Wheels of Hope, or the Alberta Cancer Research Fund (which was specially created to be funded by Spin For Life). Even in our first year, we are aiming to break the World Record for most money raised with a static cycling event.


Over the course of eight hours, our Spinners will collectively ride the circumference of the world: 40,075 km. Each hour is themed around distinct global landscapes with LED screens, theatre lighting, and mapped projections transporting participants through a beautiful, challenging, and cathartic experience. Emcees and Instructors will lead the music-filled Spin Hours, introducing stories of cancer heroes, researchers, clinicians, and remembrances of those we have lost. All culminating in a world record ceremony and on-site after party when we finish spinning around the globe!
