Richard Wharton instructs the following:
  • Cycling Class
  • The Cycling Performance Classes consist of 60 Minutes of intervals that will help you improve your stamina, speed and strength when riding outside. Classes follow a 4 to 8 week protocol of progression, which can be modified by your coach to increase or decrease intensity, based on how quickly you improve.

    Workouts are held in a group setting, but are individually tailored and adjusted to fit your abilities and experience level. The workouts provide you with goals and instant feedback on how you are doing.


    Reports of your ride are also generated and emailed after each class, along with files, so you can track your workouts and see success or improvements in multiple areas. Our on-site, Certified Coaches, will help you understand and use this feedback to both motivate and help you get the most out of each class.


    Our indoor cycling workouts provide a safe environment where you don’t have to worry about weather, traffic, dogs or potholes. You’re guaranteed to get a good workout and a great experience while you push yourself to new limits!


    ***Arrive 30 minutes early so you may set up and properly warm up.
