  • CompuTrainer 2019 October Preseason

    Starts October 16.  Three weeks!

     

    A transitional session to help riders shift from outdoor rides toward our indoor winter CT program that starts November 4, 2019. 


    Registering for October Session will allow you to “secure” that day and time for the upcoming Winter Session!!


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

     

    Experience Triathlon is proud to announce our 2019 CompuTrainer October Preseason Session, lasting 3 weeks, with rides ranging in length from 60-120 minutes, packed full with content to train every physiological system a rider needs to take their ride to the next level.  Each class is personally coached, and with a small class size, there is plenty of interaction time amongst riders and 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.

     

    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 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 Courses:   These rides will last in duration from 60-80 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 to these workouts to allow for the best workout possible.

     

    Long Ride Courses:  These rides will be incorporating the use of Quadrant Pedaling, along with mindful training of one’s energy expenditure while riding for upwards of 2+-hours per class.  There will be a mix of flat 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 oneself.  These will also be coached courses, allowing for interaction as riders need it.

     

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

    Registration Notes:



    Why strength training is important for all athletes

     

    As athletes we are always seeking ways to enhance and improve our performance.  While we often make time for more swimming, biking and running, strength training often takes a back seat.  But a properly focused triathlon-specific strength program can be the most efficient way to boost performance in all three disciples while helping you stay injury free.  The off season is a particularly opportune time to introduce strength training to your triathlon preparation regime.  Although most triathletes know how to exercise, many are confused about what exercises and types of structured workouts will specifically improve their running, biking, and swimming performance.

     

    Experience Triathlon in now conducting a strength training class to introduce triathletes of all skill levels to properly formulated strength training program tailored specifically for triathlon.  The class is based on scientific research, experience of personal training professionals, and input from successful triathlon coaches and athletes around the country.  The class includes a different workout each week that is targeted at muscle groups that benefit one, two, or all three triathlon disciplines.  Metabolic exercises are interwoven with strength focused exercises to achieve a complete physical and aerobic workout.  Variants of each exercise are introduced to accommodate all skill levels from beginner to elite athletes.

     

    In addition to improved performance and reduced risk of injury, a good strength training program can deliver the following benefits:

    • Enhanced strength and confidence
    • Muscular endurance and power.
    • Improved form and efficiency in all three disciplines
    • Decreased fatigue
    • Improved flexibility
    • Healthy, efficient body composition
    • Increased resting metabolism
    • Increased bone mineral density
    • Improved glucose metabolism
    • Maintain triathlon fitness while traveling

    “Recently Fitness Magazine made a call for stories.  Their question… “Have you met a fitness person who changed your life?  We’re looking for women who met someone significant in their lives through a fitness activity or sport.”  This made me think about my first triathlon.  I wanted to do one, but could not swim.  A friend suggested I get a coach.  That’s when I found the amazing, Coach Joe LoPresto. I would not have been able to do this without his kind heart, patience, and coaching. The triathlon event was the scariest and most fun I’ve had.  I didn’t have anyone waiting at the end of the tri for me, but as I leaving, there was Coach Joe and his heart warming hugs.  With amazing people around you amazing things can happen.” – Angie D.
