Watt's Up! Cycling Studio
Watt's Up! (by Good Venture) is a cycling studio that enables the rider to see their current activity while on a Wahoo Kickr.
What did that mean?
Watt's Up! is a spin class setting that uses Wahoo Kickr's. The direction of the workout is displayed across multiple LED TV's via WAHOOSTUDIO. It no longer uses the most common way to teach a traditional spin class, Rated Perceived Exertion (RPE).
Does this class require me to bring my own trainer?
No. There are 7 stations here. Each station can be 10 or 11 speed bike systems. It does not utilize your rear wheel. The Wahoo Kickr is as close as you can get to a real road feel, even surpassing the fluid trainer and the Direct Drive Lemond systems.
How do you measure your efforts in this class?
The unit of measurement that is used in this class is WATT. Each Wahoo Kickr has its own built in power meter. One would be surprised when using RPE, how much it can be off with what your body is really producing. RPE can also be skewed with a lot of other circumstances. For the most part, WATTS cannot be skewed (ask us later why we say for the most part).
Why should I train indoor versus outdoor?
Trainer workouts are just that, they are workouts. They are not designed to replace the outdoor experience of riding a bike. While we have experienced first hand, the consequences of safety in the outdoors, we believe outdoor riding has its place, as does indoor training workouts. Through our studies, the indoor workout can accomplish much more in this environment. To name a few advantages:
- Safer - you are not at risk with drivers when using a trainer workout.
- Quality - the workout forces you to pedal. No, its not pedal assisted but the screens will show a rider who is not pedaling.
- Time - get a quality workout in a set time.
- Accountability - the program will keep you accountable in your efforts. The experience will surpass the experience of the dreaded trainer ride in the kitchen.
- And more - the elements of the road, mother nature, the instance when you have an issue with your bike.
What do I get out of this package?
You will get results. There is no question that you will get results from this package. Functional Threshold Power (FTP) tests (included in the cost) are done initially so we can understand your baseline. Thereafter, you are tested every 6 weeks. If you are coming to the class, you WILL see a result and we will be able to give you that result. We are confident that you will be fitter and faster, all within a safe and fun experience.
However, this package consists of 2 sessions per week over a rolling 4 week period. Each session will be a minimum of 1 hr but will increase at the season progress'.
Sum it up.
