November Open Water Swim Clinic
On Saturday, November 8th, Durapulse will be hosting an open water swim clinic from Butcher Jones Cove at Saguaro Lake. The clinic will begin at 7AM and will consist of a 2.5 mile swim following 30 minutes of open water swim instruction. This is a great opportunity to swim long with many others in an open water environment. Wetsuits are recommended.
Power in Motion Endurance
Durapulse Performance Company and Power in Motion CrossFit have recently partnered to bring a successful strength and conditioning program to endurance athletes. Formerly DuraFit, this new “CrossFit for endurance” program will use the same proven training methods that Durapulse has utilized that has brought so many endurance athletes incredible success over the past few years.
The program involves daily classes that will be a part of a strength and conditioning program and will train the three energy systems of the body for complete fitness in endurance sports. Many endurance athletes neglect their phosphagen and anaerobic energy systems while giving exclusive focus to their aerobic energy system (ie. “long, slow distance”). To build and maintain complete fitness, and to race effectively, one must train all three energy systems. This program goes beyond the “general physical preparedness” that CrossFit is know for. And the ability to endure is not enough to race well. Participants will build endurance along with strength, power, speed, stamina, agility, accuracy, balance, coordination, and flexibility for their target endurance events. These physical attributes will be developed through various weightlifting and gymnastic (body weight) exercises combined with swimming, biking, and running.
The classes will involve cycling on bike trainers, running, and strength and conditioning methods with an emphasis on great technique, consistency, and work, to develop participants into the strongest and fastest endurance athlete that they can be. Those looking to build durability and resilience in their bodies while developing an increase in work capacity are great candidates for this program. This program is specialized for those training for endurance events, including running, cycling, and triathlon.
Most classes are 90 minutes in duration and will follow this format: warm up, skill and technique session, Workout of the Day (biking or running), strength work, cool down with stretching and mobility work.
Classes begin September 29th with the following schedule:
Monday 5:30-6:30AM (CrossFit Strength and Conditioning)
Tuesday 5:30-7:00PM (Bike emphasis)
Wednesday 5:30-7:00AM (Run emphasis)
Thursday 5:30-7:00PM (Run emphasis)
Friday 5:30-7:00AM (Bike emphasis)
The cost of the program is $199/month and includes a general weekly training plan for target events. The training plan will be interactive through Training Peaks (must set up a free account). The plan will give specific swim, bike, and run workouts during the week and on the weekend. For those only wanting to supplement their training program with strength and conditioning there is an option to attend any two classes/week for $149/month. Drop-ins are also available for a daily fee. Current Durapulse members will receive a discount off the listed price.
Power in Motion CrossFit is located at 16679 N. 90th St, Suite 102, Scottsdale, AZ 85260 near the 101 Freeway and Bell Rd.
I am very excited about this new partnership. Power in Motion has incredible equipment for the needs of triathletes and beyond. The gym location is near fantastic routes for road and off-road training. This is a great opportunity for Durapulse to bring better coaching to the endurance athletes in the valley.
