Our Triathlon Training program features CompuTrainer. From new triathlon enthusiasts to seasoned triathletes, CompuTrainer provides the most interesting and effective indoor bike experience available today., CompuTrainer provides the most interesting and effective indoor bike experience available today. Because you bring your own bike for a CompuTrainer ride, there is no compromise in your ride fit, form or technique. Tailored to your individual power threshold, regular training with a CompuTrainer increases your cycling power by 20 to 30% and your speed by 2 to 4 MPH. Whatever your starting point, you’ll improve significantly. After a fully committed training season, we promise you will see big results. CompuTrainer is best in its class by a wide margin and sets the industry standard for accuracy and improved performance.
All new CycleLife Studio clients will have a baseline power threshold established before beginning any training work on a CompuTrainer. In order to establish your power threshold, we set your bike up on a CompuTrainer, which has an electronic load generator that is fixed to a rear wheel bicycle training stand. This allows us to increase or decrease resistance while you pedal. Using a scale of perceived exertion, we identify your optimum power threshold. Once your power threshold is established, we enter it into our computer system so that you are ready to go for all future CompuTrainer rides.
CompuTrainer rides are pre-programmed and pre-established workouts that focus on various fitness needs for cyclists, like anaerobic and aerobic capacity, VO2 max, and interval work, etc. For example, in order to increase your anaerobic capacity, you need to train at intervals above your functional threshold power. Because your power threshold has been established and recorded in the system, CompuTrainer removes the guess work and hits the desired mark for each training goal and regimen. Because it is specifically tailored to each rider, riders see improvement more quickly than using other methods. And we have the ability to modify your threshold levels at any time.
All ride profiles, including elevation gains and target percentage of power thresholds are displayed on a high definition screen, allowing you to track your ride and progress.
