I felt blessed to work with this amazing group of young athletes and show them how they can put in specific relevant work on the bike while giving their joints a break. What an amazing experience and what a talented group of young female athletes. I was shocked to see how many of these young girls already had ACL tears and they are still in High School! We have to do a little better as porfessionals on educating not just the kids but the parents about why cross-training is important for young athletes.
Today we had the first actual RL52 Cycling sports specific session at Launch Sport Performance in Rockville, MD - Pre-Season Football Cycle! It was amazing to actually see football players on the bike in the cycling studio going through the sports specific sets, mimicing actual on-the-field work on the bike and listening to their feedback and reaction to this type of training. Oh yeah and the bike moves from side to side - its not just your ordinary bike...but an amazing cross-training tool.
Benefits of Cross Training Lots of people have a favorite type of exercise or a favorite cardio machine they use at the gym. While it is great that they enjoy exercising, there are many benefits to switching up your routine and cross training- varying your fitness program by combining different types of exercise activity.

Cross-training is the most beneficial way for anyone to stay fit. The muscles need to be shocked and confused in order to gain strength, range of motion, functional ability and flexibility. Equally as important, it prevents boredom and plateaus. It is exciting to mix up your work-outs and try something new. Get out of your comfort zone. If someone asked me what my favorite physical activity is, I would have to say I don’t have a favorite.
