The Breakthrough: Off the Bike
Strength. Fitness. Missing Link.
Look better in your tri suit! This :45 minute body weight and light equipment class will ignite your muscles in a way that you can not do on the bike, on the run or in the pool. Being a scrawny endurance athlete just doesn’t work anymore – we need abs, lats and legs firing! Let’s get f’in strong!
On the Bike Classes
Achilles Inspires: On the Bike
NYC Tri. Sprint and Olympic Focus.
The Achilles Tri club trains at a different level. Focused short course training for the elite Achille Tri Team includes high intensity interval training and a progression that will take you right to the start line of your next short bike race or short course triathlon ready for your best race ever! (ps…pay no attention to the fact that the paratriathlete next to you has a higher FTP than you).
Instructor: Thomas Barbe, Benjamin Green
Tuesday / Thursday Morning Rides
Tuesday / Thursday are the core ride days for NYC based athletes and these are the core rides you need. Need to get outside, great, just make sure at least one of these is on your schedule each week. Doing hills in the park, hit the foundation ride. Doing long intervals from the top of cat to the southwest corner, then get to the Faster Ride to produce some high intensity intervals. Rainy week – get in here for both.
Sustained Intervals. Half and Full IM. Fondo.
Sustained intervals test your mind and your body. Hold the focus and you pass the rider ahead. Lose your head and you get fade to the back. Build foundational focus with longer, mixed intervals in this class. Ideal for anyone training an endurance event that involves a bike.
Shorter, punchier Intervals. Triathletes of any distance. Bike Racers.
Short intervals are safer and more fun in the studio. These high intensity intervals give you the opportunity to see just how high you can go. We are looking for big numbers and a chance for you to experience a break through in your training.
First timers. New triathletes. Athletes looking to learn more about training with Power. This is a beginner level ride with heavy instruction, hands on learning and a chance to work 1:1 with a coach. Class size is limited to 10 riders and the format is classroom not pain cave.
Open Ride / Team Ride
Come on in, set up the Wahoo and Ride Zwift, Trainer Road or any other program that fits. Our gym is your living room. A chance to ride solo or bring a friend in to check out the equipment. This is a $10 drop in, ½ of a class on your class card or a $99 per month membership to evenings only (ends 10/1).
Hilarious Hump Day (7AM / 8AM)
Have you done core work while laughing? Studies that I’ve done on myself show that laughing out loud during a core workout gives me twice the results. Come on in on Wednesday morning and loosen up with Rudy and the crew. We’ll do a :45 minute mixed fitness workout (run, core, HIIT) workout to kick off the morning while listening to the best comedy that Pandora can serve up.
Good For: Non-Traditional Brick Work, Core, Stretch, Smiling
