Free Zwift

Smart trainers aren't nearly as expensive or as intimidating as they used to be.  It's fun to see the cycling industry catching up with technology.  Indoor training used to be something I dreaded, but with the added interactive features smart trainers offer, indoor training isn't only tolerable, it's fun!  With quality smart trainers starting out just over $400, it's easier to jump into the game.  I've been using my trainer with a sweet training program called Zwift.  Zwift is kind of like a video game you control with your bike.  You pick a ride or a workout, then the program tells your trainer what to do.  You can train solo or with friends; you can race; you can group ride; you can work out to custom plans.  There are a lot of options, and they're all excellent at pushing you not only physically but mentally. 
If you're interested, we'd like to help get you started.  Our Spin Lab includes Zwift training in a group setting.  We have a cycling coach on hand in every class to help you along the way.  If you sign up before Jan 1, you can get $50 off.
If you'd rather spin at home, we're offering a FREE 3 month subscription to Zwift with the purchase of any smart trainer before Christmas.  Come in and check them out.  We have them set up in the Lab, so you can even set up a bike and try before you buy.
