Another great Thursday morning at Greenwood Athletic Club . #GreenwoodKnowsPower. Greenwood was one of the first clubs to purchase theSTAGES Indoor Cycling SC3 bike and they have been using group display for over a year now. Some studios build their tribe by partying, on the bike, together, we build community by WORKING, on the bike, together. One of my favorite things to do with group display is to set a class average wattage goal or timed distance goal, put everyone in the class on ONE team and ALL work TOGETHER to achieve this goal. NOTHING builds COMMUNITY more then working together to reach a common purpose.

It was another record setting day at Greenwood Athletic and Tennis Club. We keep track of the highest 30 second class average and today this powerful group crushed the previous record by more than 80 watts, they cracked out 503 watts!!!!!

It is incredible how progressively training with power makes every rider stronger.

The accurate and consistent power measurement of the Stages Indoor Cycling bike has no equal. #WeKnowPower

On October 14th I will once again be participating in The Roadless Ride to benefit Brent's Place. Brent's Place is a living facility for families with children who are receiving treatments for cancer, bone marrow or organ transplants in the Denver area. Brent's Place provides a pristine living environment for children who's immune systems are severely compromised due to these treatments or surgeries. The Roadless Ride is a fundraiser held annually at Greenwood Athletic and Tennis Club that consists of 12 one hour Indoor Cycling classes where participants make a donation to ride in each class.
I have been involved with this event since it’s inception, at Greenwood. I was also the first rider to ever complete all 12 classes, what we call the Roadless Century. Since my first solo Century ride, the group of fundraisers attempting this 12-hour cycling journey has grown to and is now limited to 30. We like to “Pedal Hard for a Good Cause” and the camaraderie that is felt by this group throughout the day, knowing we are doing something special for kids and their families with cancer, is something words cannot describe. Over the last five years my sons, Seth and Christian have joined me for this experience and when I think about what we are riding for I realized how blessed I am to have two healthy children that are capable and willing to join me for this event.
If you happen to be in the Denver area on October 9th, please join me and some of the most generous people in the community for this ride. We often raise over $100,000 for the families of Brent’s Place. Not only will I be riding all 12 classes I will also be leading the 8:00 am class, team teaching with Stage Master Educator Pam Benchley and Stages Indoor Cycling Director of Education Cameron Chinatti at 2:00 pm, as well as leading the 4:00 pm class with a professional rider from the United Health Care Cycling Team. If you cannot make my class, ride with one of the other instructors who prepare for this event for months and often present their best class on this special day. If you cannot join us in Denver,then please donate to our cause.

I have seen the future of #IndoorCycling and its name is VismoX . Today was the first time I've been able to use this fantastic group display system with a group of "real people," meaning not at a trade show or alone in my basement. VismoX gives instructors everything they need to create and instruct the best classes of their fitness careers while motivating riders with accurate power-based metrics, class profiles, video, and music.

Check out a video I created showing what the VismoX experience can be. In this video, there aren't any gauges, but it does include the videos and profile. http://ow.ly/TkkG304g7z8 http://ow.ly/i/n65OI
