You can’t learn to climb long hills without climbing long hills, so from here, we head west to the mountains.

Here are our Balanced Movement Climb Training rules:

  1. Ride as a group to climb.
  2. Climb at your own pace.
  3. When you top out, descend back to the last person in the group and then ride with them back up to the top.

You descend relatively together, re-group, and ride the flats and rollers as a group. Everyone gets to put all they want into the climbs, but all stay together for the day.

This works really well, as long as you like the group you are with. So be picky about who you invite along.

I have been working out in this studio with the guidance of personal trainer, Andy Greene for years, and have been extremely pleased. He plans a personal workout routine geared toward my ability and fitness goals, changing it up weekly. He challenges me to push myself just the right amount. The atmosphere in the studio is always upbeat, and all the staff members are so friendly and supportive. The experience is really nothing like going to a gym, and keeps me going back week after week. Visiting Balanced Movement Studio, for me, is absolutely the key to regular exercise and continued good health. I highly recommend it, especially if you are someone who has a hard time self-motivating to exercise.
