Why Spin?
Are you new to cycling? Training for the upcoming triathlon season? TRAIN-OR-TRI spin class provides a low-impact, high-intensity workout for all ability levels on Cycle-Ops turbo trainers and riser blocks. You bring your own road/tri bike, cycling shoes, hydration/nutrition, sweat towel, and enthusiasm. Indoor turbo training on your own road/tri bike increases bike handling skills, teaches effective gear utilization, and promotes proper body/aero positioning while spinning your way into aerobic/anaerobic fitness.

What are Periodization and PRE-Training?
TRAIN-OR-TRI spin classes are built on a 4-week periodization schedule: 2 weeks of power climb, 1 week of race pace, and 1 week of active recovery. Every 4 weeks the intensity level ramps up via gear load, number of repetitions per drill, and duration per drill. Each cyclist’s perceived rate of exertion (PRE) will vary per drill per week of periodization, allowing cyclists to differentiate between recovery versus tempo versus race pace.

Contact Train-or-Tri for more information.
