– Multiple Indoor Cycling classes

– Cycling and Multisport Coaching
Cycle University offers both cyclists and multisport athletes a full-service training center that covers every aspect of improving athletic performance. Craig Undem is a former coach under Chris Carmichael, who trains Lance Armstrong. Craig is a former professional road, mountain bike, and cyclocross racer. Cycle University’s coaches are top-level national and local racers. Adrian Hegyvary, Cycle U’s first employee just signed a pro cycling contract with team OUCH!.
Coaches at Cycle University develop personalized training plans which improve each clients cycling and multisport performance. Coaches provide on going and event specific fitness consultation.
InCycle TM, an indoor cycling class, is a more effective way to train than a traditional spin class. During an InCycle TM class, each rider’s personal bike is connected to a stationary trainer and wattage meter. The trainers are calibrated to each rider’s level of fitness. Cycle U coaches build a rider’s fitness with unique, cycling specific workouts, that change seasonally, weekly, and daily. During each workout, a big screen shows the days required training zones, workout plan, and cycling videos. Music is provided to keep motivation high.
“InCycle TM is an excellent and efficient training program. New and experienced athletes thrive because each individual trains at his or her personal fitness level.” Says Ed Ewing, Director of the InCycleTM program.
Cycle University is growing rapidly and continues to expand new offerings to their clients. In September Cycle U released our first how-to DVD “Cyclocross Bootcamp”. Customers are already requesting more DVD’s that feature core-strength training and indoor cycling workouts.
The new West Seattle Cycle University facility is located at 4550 Fauntleroy Way.
