Testimonials from a few recent bike fittings:
I would like to thank Mo at TRAIN-OR-TRI for the most awesome bike fit. My bike is so comfortable now. I was able to take 3 minutes off my Lake Padden Triathlon bike split this year and have pretty much crushed all my pre-bikefit Strava PRs. If you have never had your bike fit to you, you are missing out on some serious speed! Thanks, Mo!
Mo was amazing! She has a sharp eye for details, and was able to quickly pick up a few elements in my bike fit that made quit a difference in my riding. She used video taped analysis of my riding form throughout to assess the issues, and followed up with more video to ensure that corrections had been made.
Her attention to the details of the fit are exceptional. I had recently gone from riding only about 50 miles a week to 120 or so, and was noticing a few areas of discomfort on the bike with the increased mileage. Mo continued to tweak the setting of the cleats and seat until she felt it was perfect. I have never had a bike fit so uniquely to my riding style and body, and now feel like I can ride all I want with no problems at all!
For a while I was eye-balling my seat’s height and my cleat position. I moved the saddle forward little bit and then back after few weeks. I kept telling myself that I will get used to all discomfort and the saddle just needed to break-in until I met Mo Trainor. She was really patient, precise on measurement, and explained every step on my bike fit.
Needless to say she spent more time than what it called for and she undid all my experiment settings. Now I’m riding with more comfort and am getting stronger every day. I’m glad that I got it done and wish that I had got it done sooner. I would recommend her bikefit to anybody that needs one.
Another precision bike fit by TRAIN-OR-TRI. This is the fourth bike Mo’s dialed in for me and I can’t recommend her services enough! The amount of power and comfort afforded from a properly fit bike is immediately noticeable. Thanks for breakin’ out the lasers, protractor and iPad again Mo!

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 is 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 cyclists perceived rate of exertion (PRE) will vary per drill per week of periodization, allowing cyclists to differentiate between recovery versus tempo versus race pace.
