Spin House performance classes have been specially designed by our leading high performance coach Joel Grech. Each class aims to develop a physical quality to help improve performance both in and out of the session. If you are looking to build strength, muscle endurance, aerobic capacity, or work under high intensity race conditions these classes are for you.
Utilising our monitoring system we are able to track performance, test your fitness and suggest the best classes to better develop your cycling. We want to educate our members on how best to achieve an optimal result. It is not just about working hard, its about training smart if you want to improve.
TIME TRIAL (TT)
Race events are great to see how your riding stacks up against others and to gauge how you are improving. It also gives us great insight as to how you can best utilise the classes to improve. Race yourself or race the others, its all about clocking up the distance as fast as you can. Great for building confidence and pacing strategy.. But really its all about the bragging rights. Race as a team or as individuals.
Repeat Sprint Ability (RSA)
Your ability to perform high intensity activity over and over with minimal rest is no picnic but you can get great improvement in endurance, power and anaerobic tolerance. You basically just did three classes in one. Give yourself a big pat on the back when you are able to drag yourself of the bike. Its hard work but great results.
Metric classes are little in-between, they are a combination of classes with some individual targets or goals set at the start. It might be a calorie target, a power output target or maybe a distance. There are also class targets, its our goal to make sure your always improving as a person but also as a group.
Aerobic classes are a sub-maximal class to improve endurance capacity. We can improve our endurance by enabling the body to adapt to this type of training which will increase cardiac output (how hard the heart works) and increase oxygen utilisation (how well we use the oxygen we breath).
Anaerobic classes are maximal and supra maximal efforts where you are never comfortable. These classes will allow you have that extra push up the mountain or sprint to the finish. Its all about how well you tolerate work, improving your exercise tolerance at high workloads can be the difference between winning and loosing a race or being in the peloton or the chase.
The size of the engine maters when it is most important. Power classes are all about building the ability to produce high force and turn those cranks over. There are some advantages to having high power outputs. During a race the higher your absolute power, the lower the stress applied to the body. As well as becoming a better cyclist you can also activate high levels of muscle. Greater muscle activation, increased muscle mass can improve your bodies ability to burn energy throughout the day and lead to weight loss.
