Instructor Chris Nielsen was one of our Ultimate Instructor Class Profile winners with her Going the Distance profile!
Training Type: Endurance
HR Zones: 3-4
Effort: moderate to hard
Class length: 60 minutes, includes ~9 minutes for cool down and stretch
This profile was developed as part of a series to show that endurance classes can be as engaging and informative as rides with higher intensity. This class gives the instructor an opportunity to simultaneously address effort management, pedaling mechanics and related form issues, universal mental challenges and also introduce some outdoor bike safety topics. The intent in mixing all of these facets into one class is to help people understand that there is much more to an endurance ride than just mindless pedaling.
