The Spin Lab is Your Ogden Race Training Solution & Certified Coaching Partner

Endurance training at The Spin Lab

We believe that a well-balanced and science-based approach to consistent training results in healthy, happy athletes that regularly surpass their goals.

What is the Spin Lab?

The Spin Lab is our in-house training facility.  Here we perform custom bikes fits, conduct lactate-threshold (LT) tests, and provide all the equipment necessary for athletes to train efficiently.  Our goal is to help you achieve peak performance...whether you are running in the Ogden Marathon, racing in the Lotoja, or setting a PR in the XTerra. 

Plenty of athletes train hard, in fact, many train too hard and never allow their bodies ample recovery.  We'll give you the tools necessary to train smart and realize the biggest gains possible given your personal circumstances.   

Our in-house coach, Steph Christensen, is a certified Sports Nutrition Advisor, certified USA Triathlon coach, and a TrainingPeaks certified coach.  She can't wait to help you make your next race a huge success!

Our Training Program is built on a simple sequential process:

Step 1: Custom Bike Fit

Step 1.  Professional Bike Fit (For running events go to Step 2)

For any training involving a bike, we recommend starting with a custom bike fit. A proper bike fit is critical to efficiency: achieving maximum power with the smoothest pedaling motion while remaining comfortable. You'll be able to ride longer, feel better, and get the most out of your training sessions.

Lactate Threshold Test Analysis

Step 2.  Lactate Threshold and Power Ramp Testing

To identify an accurate benchmark against which performance is measured, we perform Lactate Threshold and Power Ramp tests.  This is a pivotal step that allows us to accurately set training zones.  With clear, identified training zones reflecting perceived effort, heart-rate, and corresponding power output, we can tailor workouts specifically for you and your unique needs.

Coaching Packages

Step 3.  Coaching packages and Custom Training Plans

Power test results allow us to tailor a custom training plan geared at supassing your fitness goals.  Once we know your fitness level and have a clear understanding of your goals, we can select a Coaching Package to fit your needs.  Training with a good coach is possibly one of the best ways to consistently make significant gains month after month and year after year.

Training plans are most effective when paired with a structured Meal Plan.  To win races, you have to train right.  To train right, you have to eat right.  We offer nutrition consultations, 2-week and 4-week meal plans, and Sports Nutrition Consultations.
