Strada Fitness & Wellness Center, which is fast becoming the most popular fitness studio in the Flower Mound area, announced that it has teamed with TriSquared Triathlon Coaching Systems to deliver advanced triathlon training to athletes at all levels.
TriSquared recently installed four of its state-of-the-art CompuTrainer machines at Strada’s facility to serve as the foundation for the studio’s triathlon coaching. The CompuTrainers provide a realistic cycling experience in a pristine environment, while delivering instantaneous feedback on each cyclist’s pedaling technique.
“The CompuTrainer is like a stand-alone lab that provides a virtual reality perspective of riding a road bike, even simulating drafting and visuals from world-renowned triathlon courses,” said Sean Thompson, owner of TriSquared and veteran of more than 400 triathlons. “The machine identifies any holes a cyclist has in his or her pedaling technique and provides a visual representation of any problems that need to be addressed.”
Using data from the CompuTrainer, Thompson offers his clients precise methods for increasing their power and proficiency. The professional personal trainers at Strada supplement Thompson’s advice with their unique brand of “lifestyle coaching,” which emphasizes all aspects of fitness, including nutrition, weight management and strength conditioning.
“When we first started talking with Sean, it was important to us that his training would apply to any level of athlete, whether you’re a couch potato challenging yourself for your first 5K or an elite athlete competing for an Ironman medal,” said Luke Overstreet, owner of Strada Fitness. “The CompuTrainer machines are cool because up to four people at varying levels of skill and fitness can workout together, and each individual will be challenged.”
CompuTrainer classes are now available for just $25 per one-hour session, between 6 and 9 a.m., Tuesdays through Thursdays. All sessions are led by Thompson, a USA Triathlon-certified Level 1 Coach and Cooper Clinic Certified Personal Trainer. He has coached triathletes, “from beginners to pros, six-year-olds to 80-year-olds,” since 1997.
