  • CompuTrainer 2018 October Preseason

    Starts October 17.  Three weeks!

     

    A transitional session to help riders shift from outdoor rides toward our indoor winter CT program that starts November 5, 2018. 


    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 2018 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!

  • Cycling 101 – Basic formwork and Pedal Stroke concepts – December 9th

    Cycling can be as basic as simply pushing your pedals down to move your bike forward, but what if you could use your body and core to efficiently propel your bike forward? What if you could efficiently pedal with the hips and legs so that every pedal stroke became purposeful? What if the pedal stroke was broken down so that every portion of the stroke made the bike move quicker, enabling the cyclist to become more efficient and more powerful?

     

    Time: 1:00 P.M.

  • ET Stretching & Foam Rolling Class – Oct 8 – Nov 16

    Recovery.  On any given day, we subject our bodies to physical strains and stresses, some as a direct result of activities we partake in; others as a passive result of our work/commute postures and sleeping postures.

     

    The human body is a magnificently built compound of bones, and soft tissue, and there are many simple things we can do to help OUR body return back to a state of balance from muscle to muscle, joint to joint.

     

    This class is designed for any and all!  Triathletes, runners, basketball players, desk jockeys, stay-at-home parents, teachers, office workers, cyclists…. it can be beneficial for ALL humans, as we are all comprised of the same bones and soft tissue structures at the end of the day, and the act of “putting ourselves back together again” is not unique from human to human, but rather quite similar for us all.

     

    Each class will run 30-min in length, and participants will need to bring:

    • foam roller
    • 12” or 16” trigger point ball (a 16” softball works well)

     

    Each session will run 6-weeks in length, and participants can sign up for 1x/week, or 2x/week.  Each class will have a particular muscle region that is focused on, along with repetition of some of the “usual suspects” that seem to plague us all on a routine basis.  Sarah Wangerin will be leading this series.  She is a Licensed Massage Therapist, Triathlon Coach and Cycling Coach with Experience Triathlon.  Her background in massage therapy and ongoing work with physical therapy patients and athletes is the inspiration for this course, as she has found that regardless of body size, type, or activity level, we all seem to have similar ongoing aches and pains, many of which ARE correctable with purposeful stretching and foam rolling!  😊

     

    Dates: October 8 – November 16, 2018 (6 weeks)

     

    Class times:

    • Monday 5:30pm
    • Wednesday 7:15am
    • Friday 5:30am

     

    Price = $50 for 1x/week; $75 for 2x/week

    joe-loprestoThis program is coached by Joe LoPresto.  For over a decade, Coach Joe has helped hundreds of adults learn to swim and follow their dream of completing a triathlon.

     

    “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.
