Periodization Base

Transition back to base work with this month-long program. Each 90-minute workout is designed to help build your aerobic engine with a focus on proper technique, allowing you to progress to more intense efforts without injury. Participants will need to bring their own bike to class each week to ride on the CompuTrainer. Bikes should have smooth road tires and a rounded end steel rear wheel skewer. This class is not included with CompuTrainer Unlimited. To register, contact the Performance Training Department at or (312) 527-5800, extension 359.
