Why don’t cyclists do much stretching?

Why do cyclists tend to know their areas of weakness but don’t work to strengthen them?

Because riders like to ride bikes!

  • Free time? — Ride!
  • Social time? — Ride with friends!
  • Not improving fast enough? Buy a better (and more expensive) bike! — NO! Build a better body!

If this sounds like you, then you need a trainer like Ali to push you to do the things you know you need to do to have a better biker body! CYCLIST SPECIFIC STRENGTH and MOBILITY!

Let’s be honest, it’s too dark at 6pm now to go for a ride anyways – so join us!
Your body will thank you and you’ll go from plateau to performance.

Bonus: Meeting new riding buddies and saving hundreds of dollars from that unnecessary bike upgrade.

It’s Body Upgrade Time!
