We began our fall rides in early November and as the seasons changed we settled into our indoor routine, as difficult as that is. Everyone would sooner be outside of course but as Canadians we know the drill.
Winter has settled in and how much colder can it get, is a very good question! New record lows are being set across Ontario everyday so it's good that our winter program will launch on Wed. this week.
We will ride every Wednesday starting January 3rd and every Saturday starting January 6th until the second week in May when we should be able to peak our heads back out of the studio.
Indoor riding is a challenge but a great place to become a stronger, more skilled rider, providing you are hitting all the right buttons.
I began leading cycle classes more than 15 yrs ago, in many locations over the years, and by staying current with the latest cycling trends our riders contine support my efforts. I take much pride in being able to write and present proper rides that are a challenge for all but at the sametime not overwhelming to any of our group.
Our system of onsite bike/trainer storage is unique to most other rides where setting up only comes after hauling your gear to the site.
Now that the new year is upon us my Progressive Winter Strategy kicks in, so as the weeks tick past our focus will differ from element to element.
Bring it on!
Classes are now full but please join the waitlist. Thx!
We have still have room for you!
Now in yr 13 we continue with all three of our very successful Iron Motivation triathlon swimming classes at the Whitby Rec Centre.
Our swim sessions have it all, if you need an hour of let's get swimming I'll see you at 530 am on Wednesday, or use Thursday evenings 45 mins of go get'em swimming at 800 pm, or switch to work on fundamental skills Friday morning at 530 am for an hour.
Get the training you really need to make swimming your best sport of the three!
Over the years I have had many occasions to help let's say a non-swimmer or close to it, overcome tremendous fears of the water that maybe have been with them since childhood.
They may have buried that "near drowning experience" deep within but the water keeps calling them back and maybe now its time to step up.
These one to one sessions are done at a comfortable rate and are never fearful. It's important that the swimmer progress at a manageable rate to build the confidence they need to become a triathlete, a long distance swimmer or simply happy back in the water.
Think you need a coach?
If you are thinking about it you probably do!
I know its hard to approach and even ask about coaching especially when you feel so determined to succeed on your own, but the realities are a good coach will bring you faster and safer from point "A" to point "B" so that your goals are satisfied sooner and new ones can begin.
Full time coaching is key!
When you need your coach, whether for a quick training question or a sit down strategy meeting. It's important that you always feel in touch because staying close makes both jobs easier.
Our IM coaching plan is always to have the athlete's best interest at heart and to coach with honesty and integrity. Your coach must be respectful, smart and understanding to say the least or you won't have much confidence in him/her.
A coach who has been there, who knows what it takes to succeed, has stayed current out of love for the sport and still has the passion to help others is who you need.
Iron Motivation has you covered.
If you would like to talk about your future as an athlete, triathlete or as a continuing athlete wanting improvements from your usual training,
Please let me know.
I'm always happy to talk about coaching and the great enjoyment it brings me and hopefully to you too!
