Indoor Cycling Training

I've been teaching indoor cycling classes since 2010 at the Greater Pittsburgh YMCA and X Shadyside. I'm currently certified through Cycling Fusion. Classes range from 45 to 120 minutes and are taught on Keiser bikes. One of the things I love most about the classes I teach is that we often have beginners riding right alongside competitive cyclists - all workouts are adjustable to your individual fitness level and current goals. You won't find any "bike dancing" here; I design my rides to prepare you for cycling and triathlon season while keeping you engaged.

Additionally, I coach the winter training program for the Pittsburgh Major Taylor Cycling Club and have led indoor training sessions for the Pittsburgh Triathlon Club.

Here are a few of my most popular interval workouts (for more, see posts tagged "Indoor Cycling"):
