  • CompuTrainer – Weekdays – May 2022

    Experience Triathlon is excited to announce a 3 week “May session” of our weekday short course rides. A weekly indoor, computer-controlled, high-intensity interval ride is the best way to keep your FTP and speed levels up as we get into the outdoor ride and race season. Often athletes will ride outside at lower power levels, slowly losing their speed and FTP power levels that were developed over the winter off-season indoor cycling season.

     

    These intensity interval workouts will last in duration from 60-70 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.

     

    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!

  • Masters Swimming Naperville – May

    ET Masters is a weekly adult swimming program designed for triathlon and fitness swimmers. Swim coaches Joe, Christa, and Matt will provide structured workouts and stroke improvement tips at each group session.

     

    Dates:   May 2 – 27, 2022 (4 weeks)

     

    See tabs below for days/times/location and program info

     

    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.
