Andrea Guspie joined the CYKL team a few months ago. Her energy and zest for life is contagious, her classes are killer, and now you can experience her on a more personal level.

CYKL is proud to announce CYKL One-on-One! You’ll work with Andrea (tri coach, personal trainer, 2xIronman finisher, and soon to be Ultraman’er) one-on-one to tailor your workout routine to your fitness goals! Whether you’re looking to try your hand at a 5km run, a triathlon, or maybe you just need more support achieving your 2011 fitness goals, Andrea will work with you to create a plan and program that will help you achieve success.

In order to give you a better understanding of who Andrea is and why you should train with her, here’s a mini-interview with Andrea Guspie about her passion for training and triathlons.

CYKL: Who is Andrea Guspie?

AG: I am a 33 year old tattooed goof ball who feels like a big kid every day, who happens to be a very serious personal trainer, triathlon coach, and spin/cycle
instructor.  I am an Ironman athlete, who pushes my mind an body to the limit, and I often bust out the running man for shits, and giggles (not while racing of course!).

CYKL One-on-One & Andrea Guspie!

Thanks to Nadia for doing an amazing progress report on our WBTP!

“The halfway mark has come and gone for the Winter Base Camp and I am pleased to say it’s progressing nicely. We are now fully into the heavy training segment working more into zone 3 which is for muscular endurance. I must say this was probably one of the toughest classes I have ever taken for spin.”

Nothing says Saturday good times, like our WBTP! Here’s this week’s progress report from Lana, Vitess rider & CYKL fanatic!!

CYKL: Week 5 had a 2 hour ride and some deadly core exercises taught by Andrea Guspie, Ironman and now Ultraman athlete, which portion of the day hurt more?

LD: I loved both the 2 hour ride and the core exercises from Andrea.  I liked the variations Andrea showed us and I’m always looking for new core exercises.  I do find a 2 hour ride indoors much different from outdoors – thank heavens for the tunes and the video this week was a treat.

Our schedule has changed a little!!!

If you feel like hitting snooze, but still want a great work out in the morning then join Katya at 8am, instead of 6:45am on Wednesdays!

Also, Andrea is now teaching 6:45am on Fridays for all you early birds! Better than espresso, she’ll have you sweating before the sun rise!!

And Julian takes over 9:30am on Tuesdays, while Jen rocks her TOP 40 Ride on Wednesdays at 6:45pm!

Holy moly! Lots of CYKL classes to get your sweat on!

Lana Driscoll, Vitess Rider & CYKL Fan at the top of Mount Ventoux!

Here’s this week’s mini-interview!

CYKL: Week 3 of CYKL’s Winter Base Training Program, did you have any trouble sticking to your training zones for this week’s 90min ride?

LD: This week I was OK in my Zone 2 until we stood up. My heart rate would spike when standing. I need to figure out a way to fix that.

CYKL: What did you think of Scott Busch, the Polar ambassador, and his chat on the importance of heart rate and training? Read the rest of this entry »
