Training with power

Training with power results in measurable success and takes the guesswork out of training.

What is FTP?

Functional Threshold Power is the highest power you can maintain for an hour.

Maximize saddle time

Training with power means making the most out of every minute you spend training.

Training with power

You can have a great workout and not even know it.

Training with a power meter gives you a measurable gauge of your output and fitness. No more, “Oh, I had a good day,” or “I had a bad race, I am so out of shape.” The numbers don’t lie. You could feel weak but actually, have good numbers, and vice versa.

I am going to teach you what those power numbers mean and how to use them to motivate yourself to go at a certain pace during your intervals based on your current level of fitness. This is why anyone at any fitness level can take my class.

What is FTP?

The key to measuring your fitness gains

FTP or Functional Threshold Power is the highest power you can maintain for an hour. When power exceeds FTP, fatigue will occur much sooner, whereas power just below FTP can be maintained much longer.

Lactate threshold is the point during exercise at which you begin to accumulate lactic acid in your blood. This is “the burn” that you feel in your legs during high exertion. It’s a powerful predictor of your endurance performance ability.

It’s also what power-based cycling programs (including mine) are based upon. All of the power zones are based upon a percentage of your lactate threshold or Functional Threshold Power.

Maximize Saddle Time

No more junk miles

We all lead busy lives, some of ours are busier than others’. When you struggle to find time for yourself, to take care of your health and fitness and can’t even imagine committing to a regular riding schedule, fear no more. My hour-long workouts are the key to building and sustaining your highest level of fitness on the bike.
