What is Turbo and why do it.
Turbo training is an excellent way of maintaining and improving your bike fitness over the winter months. A combination of dark evenings and poor weather puts many off cycling training. Turbo trainers are devices that clamp onto your bike supporting it and providing resistance enabling you to train indoors efficiently.
Club Turbo Training
Getting on the turbo is one thing but then deciding what to do is another. Even if you have some ideas or have read through a few suggestions, it is easy to wander and not stick to any plan. A significant benefit of club sessions is that the coach leading is following a structured twenty-week plan, building your fitness and skills. They are also on hand to answer any questions you might have.
All you need to bring are a bike which must have QR (quick release skewers), a bottle of water, a towel (it gets hot) and bags of enthusiasm. There are ten club turbos available on a first come first served basis, but if you have your own please bring it along.
Where and When
8.15pm for an 8.30pm start, Activate Room, Withdean Sports Complex, Tongdean Lane, Brighton BN1 5JD. We access the room via the ramp down to the fire door on the left as you approach the reception entrance. Once you have passed through the fire door, turn right, and it's the second door on the left. There are changing facilities available opposite the Activate Room.
The Turbo sessions are an hour each and run from Mon 6th Nov - 2nd April 18, 20 weeks in total. We have split this into two blocks so you can by a block for the 6th Nov - 22nd Jan & a second from 29th Jan - 2nd April. Each block is £30, and you can buy one or both.
Why buy a block?
Buying Turbo Blocks saves you money and reduces the coaches time and effort. The block price is £3.00 per session, the on the door price is £3.50. Paying for training in advance gives you additional motivation!
We operate on a simple first come first served basis, with priority given to block bookers. However, if you’re late and there isn't enough space or a turbo available then sorry (even if you have a block). So it pays to be early.
