Motivator Application

Are you a spin motivator that’s passionate about creating a new experience for Spinners? Then Spin For Life might be the perfect fit. We’re looking for eight motivators that can work collaboratively with us to fashion eight unique, immersive, and fun hours. The ideal applicants are open to weaving theatrical elements into their motivating sessions and working with a wide range of music options.

  • Applications for the October 17, 2020, Spin For Life motivators are open until February 29, 2020 at 11:59 PM Mountain Time.

  • The motivator positions are only open to people 18 years of age and older.
  • This is a paid position with Spin For Life. There are several conditions that you must agree to before taking the position. They are:

    1. Spin For Life motivators do more than motivate during their hours – they are the hour’s emcees, hosts, and guides. Motivators will introduce event segments, other presenters, sponsors, partners, cancer survivors, and more. All from the bike. Don’t worry – Spin For Life and RocketHouse Productions will train our chosen motivators on exactly what to do.
    2. All work will take place in Calgary, Alberta.
    3. You must be available for the Spin For Life event day on October 17, 2020.
    4. You must be available for up to three (3) rehearsal dates in the weeks leading up to the event day.
    5. You’d be consulting with Spin For Life on music selections, but final decisions are solely at the discretion of Spin For Life in order to maintain the theme of each hour.
    6. Motivators will also consult with Spin For Life regarding the athletic components of their hours. There are a wide range of skill levels that Spin For Life wishes to appeal to.
    7. During the event, all lights, sound, music, microphones, and video projections are controlled by Spin For Life crew members and not motivators.
    8. Motivators are provided with onstage video monitors to help them cue through their hours.
    9. Preference will be given to “community champions” who are willing to use their influence to help grow Spin For Life to the benefit of the Canadian Cancer Society.
  • Tell us about any other relevant training experiences you may have. Dance, skiing, swimming, outdoor cycling, personal training, etc.?
  • If you have a personal connection with cancer that’s encouraging you to make this application and are willing to share it, let us know below. As a reminder, Spin For Life benefits the Canadian Cancer Society.
  • Let us know what it is like to be in a spin class with you. Lots of choreography, lots of time out of the saddle, high BPM/RPM, training for outdoor riding, etc.?
  • While Spin For Life has the final say on the music used during the event day, let us know about your current style. Do you mix it yourself, type of music played most often, do participants seek out your tracks, etc.?
  • Feel free to share anything you think that might be relevant.
  • Which spin studio(s) do you currently motivate at? Additionally, where have you motivated in the past? (Please list years as well.)
