Bike2Max Studio 


We are a power-based indoor cycle training studio situated in Kenilworth, Cape Town. At Bike2Max Studio we help you become the best cyclist you can be. Utilizing the CycleOps Pro Indoor Cycle with built-in PowerTap technology and our unique VT Fitness training app, you train according to your personal goals and power training zones that will be determined when you sign up. Once you have signed up and performed your supervised assessment your daily training will be developed by a Sport Scientist and a Cycling South Africa coaches.

 



Specific Indoor Training

Although the sessions are run as classes, everyone does their own specific training, so the training sessions are thus completely specific to your requirements, rather than everyone doing the same session for a given class.

The training model at Bike2Max is that you do 2-3 supervised indoor sessions per week, with your remaining outdoor or home-based rides being less specific and usually less intense. Your fitness is determined by performing a specific test and a 20 minute maximal-effort ride (the so-called functional threshold power or FTP); the average power and associated heart rate from this rides are used to determine and confirm your training zones. The intensity of your training sessions is set according to power output, as a percentage of your 20 minute maximal sustainable effort while heart rater response is used as a secondary measure of the intensity. The sessions are generally 70 minutes in duration and longer session are allowed if the indoor stationary cycle is available beyond that class.


For Who?

For cyclists of different abilities and levels of fitness.



Personalised Program

Your personalised program includes structured workouts that are centered around your individual factors - time constraints, history, current fitness level and realistic goals.



Personalised Training Zones

Your personalised training zone is determined by performing a specific test based on health history, current state of fitness and experience.



One-on-One Session

Workout observation and supervision enables us to make before and or during session adjustments, monitor training effort, provide feedback on technique and execution as well as noting improvements for future comparison.

 


Training Analyses

To ensure a steady progression we analyse all your sessions, including the training that you don't do at the studio. Tracking your training enables us to update your workouts, lower the risk of illness, injury and burn-out as well as increase fitness development towards your goal.



Workout Uploads

Strava and TrainingPeaks integration allows sessions to automatically upload to your profiles.



Equipment

Bike2Max uses CycleOps Phantoms a power-measuring indoor cycle that has been built around a POWERTAP hub for an accurate and precise measurement of power output. A heart rate strap is provided to record your heart rate response to the power. All the usual riding data is displayed on a tablet while you ride, and is automatically downloaded to a web-based training log for monitoring your progress and reviewing the training. In this way the training composition and intensity is updated in response to your progress

The cycles are equipped with the most commonly used pedals (Look, SPD and Shimano), and the saddles and handlebars are fully-adjustable, to enable you to replicate your usual riding position for maximal comfort and power output.
