What's the differences in the classes?
Why Train With Wheel & Sprocket?
Brand New Studios- Enjoy the state of the art Wahoo Kickr Snap indoor trainers that feel as realistic as riding the open road. In addition to the new trainers, we are excited to bring you the robust Wahoo Studio software that makes it fun and easy to understand how power, heart rate, and cadence can help us all become better riders!
Friendly, Effective Coaching- Classes are lead by coaches who love riding bikes and are here to help you achieve your goals - no matter what they may be. Each class program is developed by a team of professional staff to ensure your workouts are focused, your progress is quantifiable, and your training is effective.
All Riders Welcome- From beginners to seasoned competitive cyclists Training Hub is for everyone. As you train, you measure your progress only against yourself, offering all cyclists a comfortable environment and personally challenging training experience.
Ride Your Own Bike - Unlike spin classes, Training Hub allows you to get comfortable on your own bike and develop real techniques to help you in the upcoming season. From getting the hang of clipping in and out with your new bike shoes, to learning how shifting and cadence can improve your power output- nothing beats spending time on your own saddle.
Train without worrying about weather conditions, daylight shortages, or traffic!
How are these classes different than a "Spin Class"?
Training Hub takes outdoor cycling, indoors and allows you to use the comfort of your own bike to develop real skills that will help you down the road. Learn how to shift confidently, clip in and out, work on leg drills and become one with your bike without the external forces of the road. In addition, you work out within your own fitness ability based on your power output. After each class, you are emailed your workout results, because after all- what you measure, gets done!
Do I need to own a road bike?
While many people do use a road bike, we can accommodate any style of bike (road, mountain, hybrid) because we believe in bikes for everyone. If you have a bike with more tread on the rear tire, we will suggest a "trainer tire" that will have less resistance and make less noise during class. Recumbents welcome too!
Which type of class is right for me?
We offer two types of classes: Training Classes are sequential once a week classes that build over a 5-20 weeks with specific rider goals in mind (Learn More). Hub Classes are coached multiple times a week at all of our locations and vary in intensity to allow you to create your own flexibile, and effective riding schedule (Learn More).
How much are single class drop-ins?
Only Hub Classes are available for drop-in's and cost $20 each class. SAVE by checking out our simple class packs!
Can I take classes at different stores?
Yes, your Wahoo rider profile is accessible at all of our Training Hub locations. All of your credits are good to use at any of our locations
Do I need a trainer tire?
While it is not required, it is a good idea to put a trainer tire on for the indoor riding season. The resistance of the trainer on your rear wheel will cause some wear over time. Ask a Wheel & Sprocket employee for more info!
Am I able to leave my bike at the store?
Yes. If you would like to leave your bike at the store we offer in-store bike parking so that you don't have to deal with the hassle of dragging your bike to and from each class. Session long bike parking is only $100.
