This cold, snowy weather is the pits. At least, for warm-weather lovers like me it is. Right about now is when I start dreaming of sunshine and running outside in shorts... *sigh*
Icy paths and roads make riding and running outside difficult and often dangerous. But if you've got big goals for this spring and summer, you better be putting in the training hours during the winter.
That's where Greenstreet Wahoo KICKR classes come in!
(Looking good, gentlemen!)
Our one-hour sessions offer a variety of challenging-but-fun workouts geared toward the cyclist or triathlete working through those base or build phases before the race season starts ramping up in a few months.
Even if you're NOT a cyclist or triathlete-in-training, each trainer is set to the rider's level, so even if it's your first time in the saddle- you can do the workouts, too!
We invite you to hop on one of the best smart trainers on the market, the Wahoo KICKR Core, and power through anything from intense hill intervals to sustained aerobic segments and everything in between. I promise you'll get a quality sweat.
Sweat selfies are encouraged, but not required.
In case you missed the last blog post, Greenstreet is now offering KICKR sessions FOUR times per week: Mondays and Thursdays at 6 p.m., Wednesdays at 7 p.m. and Saturdays at 8 a.m. Sign up here!
By the way, have you met Dale? He's leading the Monday and Thursday classes, and he's a pretty cool guy!
<-- This is Dale!
Dale is a triathlete and a cyclist who has been riding competitively since college. This year, he's taking a jab at the olympic distance for triathlon (1.5k swim, 40k bike, 10k run), and has lots of races on deck this spring and summer.
Fun (semi-gross) fact: Dale almost tore his ear off completely while riding without a helmet. YIKES. He now never rides without his trusty helmet.
Come meet Dale and some other pretty cool folks at spin class! Don't forget to reserve your spot! I can pretty much guarantee you won't risk ripping off any body parts.
The lights have been dimmed. The playlists have been set. And now, Greenstreet Cycle's Wahoo KICKR Core classes are growing!
We are excited to announce that in addition to our Wednesday evening and Saturday morning classes, you can now catch a killer spin sesh Monday and Thursday nights at 6 p.m. as well! Dale will be leading these newly-added sessions!
You know what makes me happier than spin classes?
MORE spin classes!
And with hour-long workouts that push your limits in a fun, inclusive environment, what more could you want? ALL levels are welcome to these classes- our Greenstreet crew and spin leaders will make sure the resistance on your smart KICKR Core trainer is set to your specific level.
Here's a sneak peek of Wednesday night's workout...
Can you say POWER INTERVALS? We'll be working for those watts!
See you there!
Greenstreet Cycles is PSYCHED to announce that something special is coming in January!
Indoor group rides are returning in a big way with a brand new space and brand new equipment.
Those looking to build cycling strength, shake off the winter blues, and get a great sweat in with your friends-- stay tuned!
The ride is on. This week we will be celebrating the re-opening of the paved trail leading from the Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge to the Wabash Trace. We will leave from the shop at 9a.m. and head southeast into Silver City, Iowa.
We will probably roll into town before any restaurants are open, so we'll take a short break, breathe in the beauty and head back to Minneola for lunch at Tobey Jack's Steak House!
The route will be an out and back affair totaling approximately 55 miles. If you ride with the group we could return between 2p.m. and 3p.m. You could finish earlier if you skipped brunch and/or rode ahead.
