Coach Powell’s Philosophy

 

“Thoughtful planning and scientifically proven methods are the keys to success. Coaching is much more than designing a training program. It’s about understanding an athlete’s needs and being there to support and educate the athlete. Once athletes understand the mechanics and physiology of the human body, they will appreciate the subtleties of their personal program. And with that appreciation comes real opportunity to achieve their goals.”

Bring your own bike

 

You need to bring your own bike. You can attach it to one of the Cycleops SuperMagneto Pro trainers provided, or you can bring your own trainer and save money.

Doing workouts on your own bike helps to improve your neuromuscular coordination by training your nervous system to move in exactly the same pattern as when you are cycling outside. This helps to increase efficiency and ultimately to ride faster.

 

We’ve got the music and the towels!

 

We have a high quality stereo for music, as well as a projector to show videos while you spin. Towel service is also included, so there is no need to bring your own.

Bring your kick-ass cycling attitude and contribute to this cycling tribe by working at your best.
