Benefits of Spinning for Triathletes


If you are a cycling enthusiast, or 
love to compete in triathlons, then you’re in luck. The Sacramento area is one of the best locations for riding a bike, whether on the trails or on the road. Auburn, Rocklin, Roseville, and Folsom...all of these areas and more are home to some of the best cycling around.

But what if you’re dying to get in some cycle training for your next race and the weather just won’t cooperate? Triathlon indoor bike training is just the solution to your winter weather woes.

Benefits of Spinning for Triathlon Training

Besides the obvious benefit of getting to continue your training when it’s cold and drizzly outside, you can often get a more effective and efficient workout when you choose indoor spinning for your triathlon training. Most spin and indoor cycle bikes come equipped with all the high tech equipment to monitor your heart rate, cadence, power output, RPMs, and more. No more guessing how hard you’re working or how much improvement you are making over your last cycle training session.

Did you know that indoor bike training is also great cross training for a marathon. A well rounded athlete can use cross training to strengthen all of the supporting structures involved in their sport, not just the primarily impacted joints, ligaments, and muscle groups.
