And Enter to Win a H2 Smart Trainer!
Bedford, VA: June 11, 2019: Peaks Coaching Group (PCG) is offering a 4-week FTP Challenge, designed to supercharge training and raise one’s FTP during this year’s Tour de France. The challenge–comprised of training plans, webinars and Q&A sessions–runs June 29 through July 28 and is personally guided by PCG Master Coach Dr. Chris Myers. The power-based workouts mimic the Tour de France, requiring between 8-12 hours of commitment a week.
“I’ve been looking forward to this challenge for a while now because it’s all about power,” said Hunter Allen, Founder, CEO and co-author of “Training and Racing with a Power Meter.” “The TdF 4-Week FTP Challenge will take grit and determination, but it’ll be worth it when you push yourself and your FTP farther than imagined.”
Integrating the best scientifically proven training principles, this challenge will cultivate the best conditions to help you improve your health. With steady-state threshold, VO2max, anaerobic work, and recovery, this program strikes a balance that will give you the chance to raise your FTP by 5%, if you are willing to step up to the challenge!
“I’m fired-up to help challengers raise their FTP,” said Myers. “I created the training plans and educational program because I am all about helping people achieve their goals and feeling that rush of success when they finally do. And for challengers who hit their TSS numbers, weekly prizes from sponsors will be awarded–and one person will win a H2 Smart Trainer from Saris!”
