Hi Gene - I had to write you as soon as I got home from today's 62 mile Tour de Cure in Rochester NY.  We almost got rained out but started at 8am. I followed all of your suggestions for the week leading up to the ride and restudied the nutrition and other prep material from Winter Training.  What a success!  It rained for about 20 minutes as we left town and I warmed up with the field of 100-200.  After that we went right into decent hills which I had already practiced on.  That's when my Winter Training kicked in and I walked away from almost everyone around me.  Last year I was pretty inexperienced and got dropped on the slightest grade.  Today I was passing riders far more than I got passed and was still standing with power at the end of 4 hours. I ended up doing the ride in 3:55 with an average cadence of 81, average speed of 16mph, average HR of 150 for a total of 2,500' of elevation. I owe it all to you and your crew at Cycling Fusion!!

I completed the New Leaf Testing today at Cycling Fusion. I am very pleased with the improvements. My VO2 max went from below 40th percentile to 85th percentile. My zones improved greatly with increased improvement of fat utilization efficiency.
Gary
All my people were very happy with the program today! Excellent job! Thank you
Leslie
Nice job yesterday. Really enjoyed the format-well done to all! Looking forward to upcoming weeks of having someone train me!
Nancy
Gene-I'm a new Fusion junkie. I am very surprised, as I have worked out alone for most of 40 years. As you are most aware, if you have a training agenda (as I usually do), riding with others, outside, rarely works as they are either to fast or to slow. Today was the best workout I have had in 8 months, and leads me to believe that I will not only have others, but, do a good STP in 2012.
Ashley
Thank you so much for offering the webcast discount to the ICIPro members. I am learning so much by watching you coach. I look forward to taking classes from both you and Tom at ICI Pro this year. The class loved your Tour De Heart Zones profile. It was a light bulb moment for many of them!
John
"Best indoor cycling experience I’ve ever had”.. is a quote from one of my toughest to please students. Kudos to you!
Gene
Bravo guys. You rock. Let's get my HR (and hopefully my power) updates online soon. Let's have an awesome day tomorrow !!!!
Tyler
I can't wait for Winter Training! I am so happy that you guys are doing this. I wanted to participate last year, but was financially unable to do so. So, again thank you guys for doing this. I know I appreciate it.
Dawn
I want to say my first ride outside met and exceeded all of my wildest expectations. I have to admit though that my pedal stroke was much more fluid and efficient and I found I could hold a faster cadence than last year on the hills. Heart and lungs felt great, bottom line, I am so much more aware of everything that's going on with my body, bike & breath & how it ALL fits together!
Tim
Pilates instructor was precise, articulate and my class enjoyed her very much. They all appreciated the improvement in both camera work (good job Dustin) and the more appropriate instruction for their level (it was still challenging for some of the men - but doable).
Victor
See you tomorrow from your snowy backyard to mine (I'm not even going into the 7-10 inches thing). You have your class in front of you and I will have my biggest supporters (ages 11/13) behind me playing "Black Ops" wondering why Mom is trying to say the "Pledge..." mind you, with breath.
Karen
Went really well today. The group was more focused than Saturday. Several said that the workout was the best yet! The cues were really clear, and they loved Nina. Three people came back from the live broadcast on Saturday to do it again to the archive.
Jennifer
Bottom line, I think the simulcast is the teaching tool of the future.
Gene
The virtual ride with breathtaking view! Learned a lot from Gene's and your cueing--fun, encouraging, power boosting... I would get the last song of the final climb at any cost:) It is so powerful!
Sherry
I wanted to acknowledge my excitement. Watch out you have taken on a duel battery pack complete with recharger. :)
Jennifer
Gene, Bravo to the 10th degree on all the educational information & exhilarating rides you presented over the past 12 weeks! I finished the Winter Training on my own & feel an overwhelming sense of accomplishment. For the first time in a long time I put myself first, EVERY Sat., for 12 weeks. I let NOTHING deter me from my Sat. morning appointment with all of you. I feel stronger, healthier & happier because of what you gave me, because of what I gave to myself.
Laura
I followed you Saturday for the whole day on Time Warner Cable Maine. I fell in love with both of you at the very intimate, yet energizing 1st ICI/PRO conference last fall (in Boston). I just happened to come across the live "feed" class you were offering last Saturday online. Absolutely wonderful job. I enjoyed the lecture, ride & the Yoga sessions so much that I signed up for the rest of the Winter Season AND purchased a power meter trainer for my outdoor bike when I have 2 perfectly good Spinner bikes in my home. I applaud you both for everything you are doing.
Tina
Sorry but, I just have to boast a bit. I ran the Parkway Classic 10 miler running race today. I finished it with the same time I ran it 6 years ago, but the cool thing is the only cardio training I did was Cycling Fusion winter training!! I ran one 5k in February, one 4 miler in March, and another 5k a week ago. That's it for running training. My hubby was impressed. So Winter Training also benefits any runners out there who don't want to spend the winter running on a treadmil.
Alice
This is the ride I take 2-4 times per week. It has a lot of short climbs. I always judged my fitness by my time which varied between 59 min and 1:02 minutes. On my first ride after winter training my goal was only to try to keep my cadence high. (I trained to keep it between 90-95 on the Keiser). My previous cadence averaged between 65-70. I set a personal best ride in time with an average cadence around 83. My heart rate did stay in higher zones, but I did not have difficulty riding. I also learned the importance of base training in zone 2, even if it took me over a month to work on it.
Susan
To date your program has been absolutely phenomenal. I missed weeks 2 & 3 as I was out of the country on business. I cannot say that I have caught up entirely, but my performance has increased dramatically over the past two weeks (I am 70 years old and have used a heart rate monitor for at least a decade but this is the first time I have used it effectively). All in all the program is fantastic!
Ben
Gene is great - I absolutely loved the intro class - which is also why I've invited more folks this week to join us if they can, while there is still space. I feel confident that although I'm not a strong cyclist - I can develop cycling-specific muscles and more cardiovascular endurance, so when I get out on the road - I'm able to focus on the road and improving my riding skills and comfort.
Sarah
Hi Gene.  I started traditional indoor spinning about 3 years ago.  That lead to a desire to ride outdoors and learn more about cycling as an athletic sport.  With so many confusing sources to get facts from I wasn't sure where to start.  Our local spinning group offered your Winter Training and after my first demo class I knew this was what I needed.  Six months later I rode my first 62 mike Tour de Cure with power and was amazed at what I had achieved in such a short period.  Thank you for pulling together only the best of resources to help us become better athletes!
Jason
I wanted to thank you for your help in getting me back into cycling shape.  I am much better on the bike than I am walking or working at the moment.  Yesterday I completed a 3+ hour ride with almost 3000 ft elevation gain. I'm not riding for power or speed, just getting time in the saddle in all zones.  I'm very tentative going downhill and in curves.  I assume it will take a while to relax and it is probably a good thing since I can't afford to crash. I am now a firm believer in the value of time spent in zone 2 and 3.
Mike
First of all I enjoyed the training on Sat. The technology is great, and I am looking forward to what's to come.
Nick
Students this am gave me great feedback on the program. Tim, rode outside yesterday for 3 1/2 hours and had one of his best rides ever. He has never done a solid base for himself and is already experiencing the results. Larry, the one who just started using a computer, told me he LOVES the program so much and was concerned about what he would do in a month when it is over.
Angie
Hey Guys, I wanted to tell you that this is the first year I've ever done a winter training of any kind. I just started riding last year in May after not riding much if any for over 20 years. Last year I did NO low zone work and I struggled big time to keep up with the best riders in Quincy. I was always getting dropped when the tempo increased. This year is completely different. On the ride this morning I was in a group of 4 top riders from this area, some half my age, and I was not only staying with them in the fast pace line but won the final sprint into town. I owe this all to the winter training program.
Larry
Yesterday's session was great! I feel better today than I have for months. I have to admit the pilates must have loosened my hip up as I am able to move more easily than before. I will try to log in while on the road and see how things are going. I will miss you and the 'team' while away. Great session!
Emilio
I must say I love the “Winter Training Program” so far. I can tell it’ll help my riding immensely. After this last Saturday I thought I’d be wasted for 2 days like I would have been last year. Not so! Hurrraaahhhhh I was NOT sore at all the next day!
Mary Ellen
This is the best cycling training that I have ever participated in. Keep up the good work.
Ryan
I look forward to every Sat., not just because of all the great information, the guest speakers, the ride & stretch....but because you give me time to think about ME. Bravo!
Katie
Awesome job today! Really appreciated the Tour de Zones, (got my HR up to 183 for nearly :30. Hello zone 5!). My students really learned a lot from that workout!
Alan
I just wanted to share with you that I have been an indoor cycling instructor for about 13 years, coming from a group exercise instructor background of over 17 years. I found your workshops to be extremely helpful in expanding my knowledge of the outdoor cycling world. I often wondered "why" we were doing jumps, hovering and isometrics, and I haven't used them in my classes for years. I will definitely recommend your workshop to my colleagues!
Kathy
I was blown away by the winter training simulcast last week, John. (this email came to ICI / PRO and forwarded to us at Cycling Fusion) It was just like being there. I could see both Gene and the class and comment or ask questions. The fact that Tom was leading the online chat discussion and Sally Edwards made it amazing. How often do you get to interact with two people of that stature?
Gene
I cannot wait for next year! The goals and passions of Cycling Fusion are now mine too and I hope to educate my clients as well as you have with all the knowledge you've so graciously passed on. Thank you :) !!
Clay
You rock Gene! We had so much fun from this side!
Leslie
Starting off at 260 I'm a horse. But I'm down to 238 already just by putting in the work. The guys I bike with started telling me today not to take any more weight off. I think their getting nervous. :-) I've learned a ton from this course and I highly recommend it to everyone. What an awesome difference it has made with me.
Dustin
Great class today and I want to express that the program has been a perfect learning experience for understanding zone based training. Especially since I'm usually the type who hammers every time out and bonks too often due to under trained stamina and an underdeveloped knowledge of fuel consumption. So thanks for developing the program to straighten out those of us who needed a little direction.
Becca
I am pleased to say that on Friday, I rode a 50 mile ride that included Thunder Ridge (total elevation over 3800 feet) located on the Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia. The ride was challenging as I was used to riding the flatlands of Eastern North Carolina, however, with the Cycling Fusion training program, I was able to complete the ride without dismounting except for planned rest stops. The training really paid off for me as I know that last year at this time, I would have probably not made it. I was able to complete the ride without any time in zone 5!
Stephanie
Will it help me teach a better class? I think so, I think they'll learn a lot!
Tom
You have an amazing passion for indoor cycling and it shows in your Global Ride DVD's, Class Builder, Ride Builder, Winter Training, Instructor Certification..........Thank you. I love your products. They make my job as an Indoor Cycle Instructor easier and the folks that attend my classes think I'm a rock star. Thanks again.
Bill
Really great lecture and workout! Great delivery on the workout Tom. Everyone loved your strong presence and clarity and intensity. You were the captain of the ship! People liked that they could hear you and not have your voice over shadowed by the music. Overall this was one of the best sessions delivery and technology wise.
Lisa
Spinning font would be fantastic - and to be honest, your company is much better than Mad Dogg (at least Europe), they're doing nothing for Spinning in Switzerland (but that's another topic). Your team really supports us, you make us feel that we're important, your customer service is just fantastic and I can feel that you want to solve our problems. So I'm a very happy customer - and please let your team know that they are doing a great job. I can't be easy especially with Class Builder and all the instructors with different certifications, different ways of preparing and teaching classes and therefore wanting different things from the app - and having no clue about programing :-)

I'm 55 and have spent the last few years at the computer for far too many hours. I've had Lyme disease and was immobilized for 5 years. I have had periods in my life with lots of exercise and very little exercise. Now, I would like to increase my exercise, but in a way that gives me energy rather than drains me. The only riding instruction I have had is in your winter training program. This weekend we took our bikes out and went for a ride on the Canal trail. We rode to the end of the trail, the furthest we have ever ridden! There were some huffing and puffing moments where we felt like you and your Winter Training crew were inspiring us onward. The biggest progress we both noticed was that we could do the little hills with no problem. It's a fairly flat trail, but the small little inclines have been real deterrents in the past.
Emilio
I'm sad training is over :( thank you so much for the wonderful people you have introduced me to. The guest instructors this year were fantastic.
Rachel
Another great session today...What a treat having Sally Edwards speak to us today! I know plenty of triathaletes that would have paid money to hear her speak and we get to hear her just as part of our program. Awesome!
Johnathan
I was too overwhelmed during the start-up phase of the studio (we opened Dec. 1st, 2010) to take this on, but after receiving an e-mail invitation from Jennifer Sage to watch last Friday night, I decided to also sign up for one week of your Winter Training to check it out. I have been completely blown away. What you are doing is so incredible, so comprehensive, that I can say now that I absolutely want to be a facilitator and offer this through JoyRide next winter!!!
Robin
I cannot believe that its been 10 1/2 months since i broke my leg. thanks to the format of winter training i was able to ride with my friends without a problem :) yeah!!! i am soooo happy
Dave
It was great! Folks all said there's a lot more to learn apparently! They were all tickled when you said hi to us in Beaumont, Texas! Nothing like making them feel special, that's for sure. thanks again
Alan
WOW, the secret sauce is no longer secret - Winter Training is only at the half-way point and it's turning heads! It was overheard on the MS150 (Houston to Austin) last weekend..."she's how old? No way!" and, in their next gasping breath.. "she's makin' us all look bad, thought you were kidding - we'll have to ride 28 mph and catch up.." Week number 7 -- the adventure continues!
