POWER BOOSTER (tm) is Indianapolis' premier indoor cycling studio, a high-tech indoor riding and coaching program put on by Marian University Cycling for the Indianapolis community. Founded in 2006 by Marian University’s Head Cycling Coach Dean Peterson, the popular indoor cycling training series enters another year of preparing Indy-area cyclists for a full season of training and competition through an established system of workouts that take place inside on state-of-the-art Computrainer© units. The advanced indoor multi-rider set-up allows the riders and coach to monitor, via digital screens, individual power (wattage), speed, distance ridden, caloric expenditure, and other metrics. A small-group setting of eight riders at a time allows coaches to see individual data and hone in on each rider’s specific training needs while riders are coached through designed workouts to build power and form on the bike.
The drills and prescribed cycling intervals are designed to increase cycling-specific efficiency, power, and overall output. POWER BOOSTER is great for those with spring/summer racing goals, triathletes, or those that just want to get into shape and lose some unwanted weight fast and effectively! The series of classes works as a cohesive system to increase power and prepare riders for the summer season through pedal efficiency drills, specific output intervals, and feedback from coaches, who are experienced cyclists in the community
The established system of workouts can be found at two locations: the Paul J. Normal Cycling Center at Marian University and the St. Vincent Sports Performance Center at Clay Terrace in Carmel. In addition to the indoor studios, POWER BOOSTER is proud to provide neutral warm up for Indy Crit, Mass Ave Crit, and other local events in our partnership with TRUTRAINER ROLLERS, a Indianapolis-based manufacturer of premium bicycle rollers..
POWER BOOSTER is ideal for riders with spring, summer, and fall racing goals, triathletes, or those that want to get into shape and lose some unwanted weight fast and effectively, building a solid base of endurance tempo while also beginning higher-end lactate threshold work. In the 2012 Build classes, riders gained an average of over 8.5% lactate functional power- about 25 watts!
