Cycling Studio

This is a training studio not a spin studio!

You will learn how to train & pedal efficiently under the guidance of a qualified coach.

It’s the most precise, high quality, personalised training tool I have found. Whether it’s performance on the road, the pitch or just life in general, the Wattbike is the magic ingredient. I can’t recommend it highly enough.Nic Gill – New Zealand Rugby Team Strength & Conditioning Coach

Training sessions are structured around specific events and incorporated in training programs specific to upcoming events. We will structure the sessions to concentrate on specific areas of cycling e.g strength, speed, form and climbing.

Wattbike

The Wattbike was created with British Cycling to provide  an indoor bike for training and testing that is suitable for everyone from school children to Olympic Gold Medallists.

The Wattbike is chosen by UCI World Cycling Centre as their global talent ID and coach education tool, the Wattbike is the first factory calibrated indoor bike to deliver accurate, consistent performance data and technical feedback.

Riding a Wattbike feels like riding a bike

The Wattbike features both air and magnetic braking systems to allow you to replicate any desired training session from low intensity recovery riding to maximal intensity sprints. Unlike any other indoor bike, riding on the Wattbike feels like riding on the road or track no matter what resistance you choose.

“There’s an increasing number of cyclists, mountain bikers and triathletes recognising the need for a quality training facility with not onlyPower and Heart Rate but in improving pedalling efficiency with the addition of a Pedalling Efficiency Score (PES) which is a incredible feature,check out this for more details: master your pedalling technique to improve your cycling

We feel that it’s important to ensure everyone has access to a Wattbike for their weekly training, additionally members will have access to professional coaching and medical professionals. Our studio is busy during group times with limited bikes available, but the rest of the time it’s used only for testing, bike set-up and for the Discovery Vitality Fitness assessments. We felt it makes sense to open it up outside of class times to anyone that’s committed to improving their performance,” said Garnett.

“There are many cyclists, mountain bikers and triathletes that make use of Wattbikes as part of their gym contracts. But there can be frustration when there isn’t a Wattbike available at peak times or the Wattbikes aren’t maintained. At The Practice you secure access to well-maintained, clean Wattbikes, which will be a big help for anyone that’s serious about their performance improvement,” added Garnett
