    Sweat.  Music.  More Sweat.  Laughter.  Competitive Drive.  Encouragement.  Coaching.  Coffee.  Stretching.  Chilling.  Improvement.

     

    Experience Triathlon is excited to announce our next  7-week Session. Rides will once again range in length from 60-120 minutes, packed full of content to train every physiological system a rider needs to take their ride to the next level.  Each class is personally coached, and with small class size, there is plenty of interaction time with other riders and the coach.  For those looking to ride “solo,” just bring along a pair of earbuds, and allow yourself to have the ride unfold before you while you go into your own mind.

     

    Our classes are open to all athletes across the Chicagoland triathlon and cycling communities, not just those that are members of ET. All ability levels are welcome!

     

    Instant feedback on a rider’s effort allows one to adjust their pedal stroke mechanics and muscular engagement to make the most of their training.  Seeing the data of other riders gives the extra added incentive to never give up, and keep pushing harder.   No matter a cyclist’s riding ability, this program WILL help them improve their cycling fitness while becoming more mindful of their pedaling efficiency.

     

    Short Ride Classes:   These intensity interval workouts will last 60 minutes in length, and will focus on training an athlete’s engine, from anaerobic intervals to VO2max work, to Functional Threshold stabilization.  Plenty of recovery time will be incorporated into these workouts to allow for the best workout possible.

     

    Long Ride Classes:   These classes are 2 hours of riding various courses from around the world.  There will be a mix of flatter courses with specific energy system focuses, along with plenty of hilly course rides, including the local favorite of Ironman Wisconsin, for riders to practice riding with instant performance feedback and the company of others to motivate and push themselves.

     

    Once a ride is done, enjoy some stretch and relaxation time in ET’s Stretch and Rest lounge, complete with foam rollers, yoga mats, and coffee!

    Program pricing is reduced each week so that swimmers only pay for the remaining weeks of the session when they do sign up.

     

    Swimmers have the option of one day a week, two days a week, or just a single-day drop-in registration!

    Is Masters only for Advanced swimmers? 

    Actually, the word Masters does not have anything to do with your level of swimming.  It’s a term that USA Swimming uses to describe “adult” swimmers vs “youth” swimmers.  Our program is filled with intermediate and advanced swimmers of all speeds, abilities, experience levels.  If you can swim laps freestyle in the pool and do at least a total of 1000 yards with many rest stops over the hour-long session, you’ll be fine.  If you’re still learning to swim and struggle to get across the pool for a lap or two, our Swim 101 Learn to Swim or private lessons are the way to go.
