Shoes/ what to bring

Since you are on your own bike, you’ll bring cycling shoes for it. Consider switching to an older or tougher rear tire since the trainer works by applying pressure/friction to your tire. You are also recommended to bring a water bottle. SHIFT provides towels and has snacks and food for sale. You can also pay to valet your bike at the studio.


WHICH CLASS IS RIGHT FOR ME?

All of our classes provide a great cycling workout that will build your strength and stamina to a noticeable degree during the 13-week session. In general, we direct folks new to triathlon to Shannon’s classes, but experienced triathletes will gain much from any of these classes.

M2: M2’s classes focus a little more on power and strength and will use power monitoring. 

SHANNON: Shannon’s classes will focus a little more on technique and will also teach you how to use heart-rate to monitor your performance in training and in races. 

TYLER: Tyler's Shift classes focus on cycling form, efficiency, and increased power through varying intensity of training. The scripts at SHIFT are written by coach Matt Dixon of PurplePatch Fitness. 

If you want some help choosing which class is right for you, drop us an email at spin@sftriclub.org and let us know your level of experience with triathlon, cycling and spinning as well as your goals for the season. We’ll be happy to provide more info and a recommendation.
