As December approaches we’re gearing up for our amazing CYKL Winter Base Training Program beginning the FIRST weekend in January! Howard, another of one of our past participants, gave us a great testimonial this week! Check it out below and learn a little more about why the WBTP is for everyone!

“Regardless of your fitness level, CYKL’s Winter Base Training Program is a great program that gives you an opportunity to continuously improve on your physical strength over the 12-week period.  So, keep stuffing yourself throughout this holiday season because you will burn it off gradually (provide that you put in the hard work).  I love the program because in additional to the physical component, the program provides guidance on other areas such as the importance of nutrition, the effective use of aerobic and anaerobic zones, among many more.  I always participate in the Sporting Life 10K and I never have time to train, but I never worry because I am prepped up from the Winter Base Training.  You definitely have my support on the greatness of the program, well, I guess you already have my money too since I already signed up, so CYKL, well done on all fronts. ” – Howard

But I’m not a cyclist so why would I need this?

This program is for EVERYONE, whether you are new to indoor cycling or an avid cyclist, runner or triathlete – it’s all about building endurance and increasing fitness no matter what your fitness level.

What is it? The CYKL Winter Base Training Program is a 12 week periodization program, designed by Kim Donnelly. It begins by going back to the basics – concentrating on form, function and technique on the bike. Sessions start at around 90 mins (and grow to 2+ hours), focusing on building up your aerobic and muscular endurance over the course of 12 weeks.
Who is this program for? This program is perfect for cyclists looking to hit the 2015 season fresh and ready, for runners looking to use cycling as a great cross training tool throughout the winter, as well as riders who feel like they’ve plateaued in their exercise regime. All levels and abilities welcome!
What does it include? On top of 12 weekly sessions, this program also includes a series of guest speakers and experts who will come and chat at our sessions. We cover a variety of topics from nutrition to stretching. You must have a working heart rate monitor for this program. CYKL sells Polar Heart Rate Monitors and straps at an extra cost.

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.
