Certified instructor description:
A straight-forward interval cycling program that's energized by Cathe's supportive attitude and sincere encouragement (she really does make you feel strong, powerful and invigorated). The workout has eleven distinct segments, each one performed to a different current pop music song. The ride features varying speeds, tensions and body positions (e.g. “seated and standing sprints,” “light standing hill climbs with sprints,” “slow, heavy hill climbs”). As you'd expect, Cathe always maintains a strong focus on proper technique and effective form (“keep your chest behind the handle bars; I know the tendency is to...”). Has a motivating, on-screen timer. ©2012.
