Wattbike session with Guru Eddie Fletcher
Always keen to get to grips with our clients, Sue, Scarlett and Nicky J headed to the HQ of Wattbike Guru, Eddie Fletcher who would put them through their pedalling paces whilst explaining the amazing analytics the Wattbike has to offer.
Lycra on, water at the ready and raring to go the ladies climbed up onto their bikes (Sue - our GB triathlete looking slightly more comfortable than the others) for a 3 hour session that would take us not only to maximum heart rates and back but into the depths of advanced sport science at its best.
From an intense 20 minute ‘warm-up’ that had us shouting the Jens Voigt catchphrase ‘Shut Up Legs!’, to group training using heart rate zones and competitive 100m sprints the Wattbike has a work out and programme to suit everyone, whether you’re an elite athlete, a fitness fan or jumping onto the bike for the first time.
One take home message for the ladies out there - if you’re going to spend 3 hours on a bike, make sure you bring your cycling shorts.
