The Aberdeen Bike Studio is a fitness program that is utilizing the cycling industry's leading performance training technology. The Studio allows you to use your own bicycle so you are always able to be training in the same position you ride or race in. The trainers are electronically controlled to simulate resistance to your fitness level so you, the rider, can experience the most realistic conditions indoors. Your rides will be based on FTP (Functional Threshold Power) for training. We also have the ability to develop work-out programs for individuals so they can reach their goals. We can also share your data if you are an athlete working with a coach.
Functional threshold power (FTP) represents your ability to sustain the highest possible power output over 60 minutes, whether you are a trained athlete or not. As your fitness level improves so does FTP. You will see your numbers improve over time as you train.
At Aberdeen Bike we schedule a 20 minute test (after a warm-up) that gives us the information needed to calculate FTP and set up the proper workout for you. We ask that you contact us so we can schedule the best time for your personal test.
Ride into spring class is for novice riders. The class is a 13 week program that takes a new rider from the studio to the road. Working on building a strong endurance base to start, with strength and intervals as we move forward raising your fitness level. The training will prepare you for a 50 mile ride the last week. The ride will be on March 31st weather permitting.
This off-season training program is focused on athletes looking to increase their strength and understand how to better utilize their training time. Major focus on endurance and raising anaerobic threshold to increase speed over time. These classes will help your overall endurance.
Weekly planned rides focusing on intervals, strength or endurance.
