Power Pacing is one of the most popular programs in today’s fitness industry. The benefits of this type of indoor cycling to overall conditioning and cardiovascular endurance make it one of the best exercise options available to serious fitness enthusiasts. Because Power Pacing is both aerobic and anaerobic, many experts believe it is the ultimate workout. Here is your chance to learn all about this combination of athletic racing, strength training, rhythmic movements, and visualization.
Power Pacing for Indoor Cycling is the first book available on group indoor cycling and gives you step-by-step instructions on how you can benefit from these nonimpact, full-body workouts.
