Outdoor and Indoor Cycling training sessions provide fantastic high-cardiovascular, low impact workouts with proven fitness results (e.g. see heartzone graphs below).

Whether you are new to outdoor cycling needing pointers to get the most out of your training or want to gain confidence on a new bike or you are an active competitor who would benefit from slight modifications to make you more efficient and improve your performance, we can provide outdoor cycling coaching sessions to help you achieve your goals.

Indoor Cycling Training

We have two options:

              1. Compu-trainer on your own bike. This provides feedback for heart rate zone training, training plans, and an effective alternative when the weather is not safe or agreeable for outdoor riding.
              2. Indoor cycling classes at two gyms. Check the schedule for locations and times.

Indoor Training Works and Our Clients are Proving It!!!!

Effective Indoor Cycling Training will compliment all outdoor training, detraining* programs & maintain cardiovascular fitness during your “off season”. Clients who consistently attend, focus & follow professionally presented Indoor Cycling classes get REAL RESULTS as proven by two of our regular clients.

Jenny Davidson, member @ Chelsea Piers Gym, Manhattan successfully competed in the Survival of the Shawangunks (SOS triathlon) and is now training for the Wisconsin Ironman Triathlon in September 2013!

 

Nori Tokumasu, member @ Chelsea Piers Gym, Manhattan successfully competed in the first and only NYC IRONMAN 2012!

 

 

Both clients attend our weekly Indoor Cycling Classes and recently credited these classes for helping support their training, achieving fantastic results in the outdoor events. (See Jenny’s testimonial here) Congratulations Nori and Jenny for being amazing athletes!

Heart rate monitoring is an additional effective training tool. Both these clients use heart rate monitors in our sessions to monitor and enhance their performance further. Exercising in effective heart zones can support almost every element on fitness, reduce stress and achieve that “feel-good” state of mind. Here are some examples of their results from sessions at Chelsea Piers:

Nori – Strength Training – gradual climb – 60 minutes

Nori – Interval Training – 60 minutes

Nori - Gradual climb followed by 2 sets TABATA intervals - 60 minutes

Jenny - Strength Training – 60 minutes

* Detrain: train with less intensity. Usually done in the “off season” for athletic events/sports/competition which varies for different sports & locations. Training programs change to create more flexibility, heal, strengthen & support any injuries and increase rest time. Detraining allows your body, mind, spirit to recharge!

heart rate monitoring

Wearing a heart rate monitor during aerobic training can provide many benefits, including planning your training session to match your goals, measuring progress and avoiding over training. We encourage our clients to use them. Below is one client’s heart rate results from some of our indoor cycling workouts:
