The BikeRadar Training Hub kicked off at the London Bike Show on Thursday, with Koolstof Coaching putting riders through their pedal strokes with a series of fitness tests and consultations. Friday is sold out but there are still some places available this weekend if you hurry – you can either book online or register in person at the show.
The two hour session priced at £115, is designed to enhance cycling performance and highlight where improvements can be made and includes the following:
Zone 1: POWERbreathe Inspiratory muscles tested, body fat analysis, height, weight, anti-oxidant levels measurements, spin scan analysis
Zone 2: Fitness test to assess power zones, heart rate zones and VO2 max
Zone 3: Postural and flexibility assessment
Zone 4: Coaching talk, introduction to training and coaching, and open questions
Koolstof will then analyse your results and put together personalised training plans that will be sent to you later.
Our man Jason Veall subjected himself to the full battery of tests, painful as some of them were. As you can see from the images below:
