Krista’s thoughts on the WBTP!

Krista is teaching the Saturday 7am Winter Base Training Program starting Jan 7th! Last year she rode the program for the first time, and here’s her thoughts on the WBTP and how it helped her get in shape for spring!

I love being an instructor at CYKL, I love the studio, our riders and I love getting up there and crushing a climb or a mean set of intervals. Addicted to the adrenaline? Absolutely. I’m a mountain biker – I want tough climbs and intervals.
I know the benefits (and importance) of endurance zone training and I mix it into my weekly training (most of the time) but the 12 week program hadn’t been something I considered. Every January Kim and Jen have encouraged me to join and every January I made up a reason to not do it.

“Aerobic zone training? For 12 weeks? Not my thing Jen. Come on.”

Last year, I decided to give it a try – I needed to do something different. It changed everything for me. I teach differently. My breathing changed. It was a reminder on some things (a reminder I needed), and a lesson on other things. And on top of all that, I was ready for Spring riding more than ever before.

I get to take over Jen’s Saturday morning session this Winter while she’s off having her baby – and I’m really looking forward to sharing my excitement for this program with the crew. We are going to have a great 12 weeks and we’re all going to finish ready to roll!

Join Krista on Saturdays at 7am! ONLY 5 SPACES LEFT!
