Join TaGcycle indoors and outdoors with a selection of workouts. Each week the workouts are specifically made to improve your fitness and develop specific physiological systems that prepare you for the demands of cycling and many other sports. The indoor bikes we train with enable us to share with you decades of our Olympic training using “Wattage” and “Cadence”. Wattage is a measure of Power. Cadence is leg speed and an important component of generating this power. The workout is tailored to your individual needs by offering a fitness “test” called a Maximum Aerobic Power (MAP) test (after an orientation session). This test is not to determine “if” you are fit, but rather to determine the wattages that apply to you personally, which will improve your fitness. We have seen improvements of over 30% in 12 weeks with our programs. For class description see below.
TaGCycle™ 60 minute
This class is designed to accelerate your cycling level and help you achieve your goals, whether that is an improved Fondo, tackling a Trans Alp Event, a Mass Charity Ride or to ride with more experienced friends. It may simply be to move up the Strava Rankings on a favourite route! 60 minutes includes a warm-up, the workout portion and a cool down. The workout portion is intervals that follow a progressive format and periodized structure. The intervals are designed to address your needs for development in cycling specific zones and technique. Work will be done in specific power zones based on the Maximal Aerobic Power (MAP) test that is done at one of your first classes. TaGCycle Classic includes an MAP Test in your package. The test is taken during a regular class . Typically 2 Coaches are in class. One on the bike guiding and motivating you through the workout, and one on the floor guiding you through the computer and assisting with your hydration and any additional needs.
TaGDDay™ 75-90 minute
75-90 minute classes that are designed for cyclists with some history in training and the ability to “enjoy” or appreciate a harder class. . Expect a longer and harder session than you would find elsewhere. Highly recommended for riders looking for effective training for race goals and personal bests . But don’t shy away if you are game to try. Anyone is welcome! This class is geared towards those wanting a more challenging format structured by a periodized plan. Riders will be pushed slightly harder than in a regular TaGCycle class. DDay includes a Maximal Aerobic Power (MAP) Test to determine training zones. Those numbers will be your guideline to train like the Pro’s!
