Friday Night Fights

Friday Night Fights, indoor cycle racing, is a fun and social way to challenge yourself during the winter season – perfect for baseline fitness testing, a race amongst friends, and/or a high quality workout.  Each event consists of a time trial on a pre-selected course, generally btwn 10 and 20 min. in raw length and is performed on a Computrainer.  Trainers are also provided for warmup and cooldown.  Wave starts will be performed in 30 min. increments between 3 and 7:00 PM and ~30 min. warmup prior to wave start is strongly encouraged.  Register for the Series or individual races with your preferred time slot.  Male and Female overall series champions will be determined as best 3 results out of the 4 race series.

Stay tuned for 2017-2018 race schedule.

Winter Rowing “…Not so gently downstream”

The Sustainable Athlete is now offering indoor rowing classes.  Rowing addresses two common limiters for endurance athletes: flexibility and core.  This class will cover the spectrum, from learning proper rowing technique on the Concept 2 rowing machine to pushing fitness to new levels.  Rowing incorporates the entire body into every stroke, offering tremendous gains in strength and aerobic capacity and unparalleled caloric burn for the time invested.  Push individual fitness while feeling the energy of the ultimate team sport! Contact doug@thesustainableathlete.com with any questions regarding private or semi-private rowing instruction.

Winter Rowing will return, classes capped at 5 individuals.
