Here are jus a few of the testimonials we have received:
This is the first winter (tax) season that I did not gain at least 5-10 pounds. I have been using ECL twice a week all winter and when I went down to Lakewood to ride in April I pretty much started where I left off last fall. I did not have a sore butt and no leg cramping which happened before. Thanks for that.
The program has been great and really helped my cycling strength.
I really looked forward to and enjoyed each ride you and Derek are outstanding people.
It’s time to start training for your 2017 rides and races!
Mother Nature is not cooperating with our itch to get the bike out on the trail or pavement so it’s indoors we go for training.
Endurance Cycling Lab has state of the art, computerized training using Wahoo KICKR trainers. These classes are as true to riding outdoors as you can get. There’s no cheating! This is not your typical spin class. You can’t pretend to put more resistance on your ride - the computer is going to make sure you are working as hard as you should.
If you have never tried a cycling class using KICKR trainers, STEP UP!
This class will get your heart pounding, your legs screaming, and make you wish you could coast after the climb.

#EnduranceCyclingLab training is based on each individuals FTP. So, what is F.T.P.?
Functional Threshold Power is simply your maximum power output which you can sustain for an hour.
How hard can you work? How much Endurance do you have? How much force can you sustain for 60 minutes?
We conduct FTP tests typically during week 2 of each session. We do have mercy on our participants, and don’t make them push all out for a full hour. Typically the test is a 20 minutes warm up, then all out- everything you got-for 8 minutes, recover ride for 10 minutes, and another 8 minute all out-everything you got and more, and then recovery ride for 15 minutes. We then take the two all out, FTP Test results, average your s...
I'm getting ready to start the Monday night training and I look around and see #Scott, #Specialized, #Trek, #Motobecane, #Borealis, aluminum, steel, and #carbon, and I know that in here, none of that matters.
This isn’t about what you got, it’s about what you have. It’s about you and you alone. Do you have what it takes? Do you have the drive, ambition, and stamina to do this? Do you have the #Endurance to go up against #Sufferfest? There’s no cheating, no slacking, no coasting in this #paincave. It’s you and your bike on #KICKR, in a true kick ass training.
As the Sufferfest workout taunts you from the screen, you dig down deep and begin. Soon you're wiping the sweat out of your eyes, yelling #shutuplegs and reflect on #Rulenumber5.
