After riding outside all summer, how much stronger have you become? If you’ve just started, how powerful a rider are you?
This weekend, we’ll be hosting a Functional Threshold Power Assessment – also known as FTP tests – on Saturday, November 4 at our normal class time so you can find out.
Never done an FTP Test with us before? No worries! An FTP test is a ride that focuses on 20 minutes of continuous effort. Effort levels are measured in both wattage and heart rate. We will test your FTP and FTHR at the same time.
Why test your FTP? It gives you the tools you need to customize your personal training zones and train more effectively. 90% of our riders use a heart rate monitor (we recommend this one) and the iCardio app to track their effort levels. With your unique data from the FTP assessment, you’ll be able to customize your personal training zones. This will make your training at the studio even more effective moving forward!
The testing is open to non-WTIC members for just $20.00 – just have your guests email us so we can ensure a bike is available. Members, please make sure you book in advance on Mindbody. You know how busy we can get on weekends, and most of our members will want to do their FTP tests!
