The Trailhead Athletics MTB Strength Series is back for 2019!

UPDATE: Based on feedback of high interest but folks’ busy evening schedules, we have updated our offering for the MTB Winter Strength Series to take place 1 night per week instead of 2, and run for 8 weeks instead of 6. More manageable commitment, and longer time to develop strength.

Classes will take place on Wednesday nights from 6:30PM to 7:30PM. The first class will be on Wednesday, February 21st, and the final class will be on Wednesday, April 11th, just in time for the start of the spring race season. 

We are excited to be teaming up once again with local professional cyclist Spencer Paxson and his coaching business Peak Energy Performance  This 6-week series will include two sessions per week, comprised of a strength-focused class (think lift heavy) and a faster paced conditioning class (think out of breath). The program will be tailored to the specific demands of modern mountain biking and suitable for anyone looking to improve their strength and stamina whether for enduro racing, or endurance trail riding.

This year we are providing an “Advanced” and “Intermediate” option for the series.

Series starts on Wednesday, February 21st and runs until April 11th

Wednesday evenings at 6:30-7:30PM – Intermediate Strength Class

If you are looking for a worthwhile kickstart to your mountain bike season (and your cycling endeavors in general), sign up here.  before spaces fill up! Limited to 10 Advanced and 10 Intermediate. Cost for the course is $329+tax. Classes are 60min in length.

Not sure which version to sign up for? If you currently train in a gym regularly, consider yourself experienced with technique, have the mobility and strength to perform heavy lifts, but are looking for a more bike-specific routine to take it to the next level, consider the Advanced class. If it has been several months or more since you have been to a gym, or if you are unfamiliar with technique and heavier loads, then consider the Intermediate class. For questions, please contact Derek and Nicola directly.
