How To Tuesdays: #Beginner371 for Momentum 94.7 [[ Week IV – V ]]

This year’s Momentum 94.7 Cycle Challenge is taking place on the 9th (mountain bike) and 16th of November (road). We have decided to post a training plan for beginner riders here weekly and we hope you enjoyed the first three weeks of training? You should be starting to see some improvement in your strength and fitness levels and we know you are getting addicted to the release of endorphins 🙂

If you would like to adapt the plan to suit your strength and fitness levels or have a different goal that you are working towards please feel free to contact Wesleigh on wesleigh@mobiletrainers.co.za. He is a mobile personal trainer which means he comes to you (no gym contract or own equipment necessary) and is focused on a creating a completely customised and personalised training plan suitable for you.

We will be updating our Twitter and Facebook pages daily (follow the #Beginner371hashtag) with the program too so be sure to follow us there to stay updated :)
