2018 Team Training

UBG Weekly Info

THE SUN IS OUT!!!! I feel better already! It’s been hard to get excited about getting out on the bike when the weather has been so wet and cold. Not to worry. There are tons of things to do at the gym to start prepping you for riding outside. If you can not ride outside during the week make sure you are hitting at least two spin classes during the week, make sure to add a good ab workout. This will help strengthen your core, which will help your back on the longer rides. Also add a good leg workout early on in the week so that your legs are ready for longer weekend rides.

 

SPECIAL CLASS

Due to the bad weather and lack of training UBG has booked the spin studio at Equinox for Tuesday; February 20th 7pm. Fernando will push you to your limits for a 50 min class. The bikes have spd and look cleats. You can also wear your gym shoes. There are 48 bikes so the first 48 folks that sign up are guaranteed a bike!!! Thought it would be a great way for the team to get together and train!!! Sign up on facebook….

 

Open House

Drinks provided by Revolver Houston, Lite Bites, DJ, door prizes! Please RSVP to book@3930ego.com 3930 Ego 3930 Gibson, Houston, TX 77007
