While training with the Peak Centre, there is a certain confidence knowing that each specific training session completed has just moved you one more step ahead of your competition.
The varying events in which cyclists complete make it unique in terms of training. Understanding the rider and the type of events they will be participating in is critical to their success.
Peak’s Comprehensive Cycling Program uses a combination of selective testing protocols and the integration and manipulation of specific aerobic, anaerobic, and strength training workouts. The process utilizes modern training techniques such as custom tailored programs on the CompuTrainer and Spinscan which can be completed at home or in a group environment.
