Training at Higher Gear

CompuTrainer CT CompuTrain Studio Power Group Ride Higher Gear WilmetteIf you have plans for 2017 to race, ride an early season century or just step up your cycling, a CompuTrainer Studio is a good place to start your season off right.

Higher Gear’s CompuTrainer Studio is located in our shop in Wilmette. Conveniently located in Plaza del Lago along Sheridan Road – not far from the Linden el stop or the Wilmette Metra station – our CompuTrainer Studio fills a void in the northern suburbs, for those who are looking for the studio cycling experience without the drive.

How CompuTraining is Different

Unlike spinning, CompuTraining allows you to put the time in your own saddle and the (virtual) miles on your own bike. You’re also getting real-time feedback on your wattage, cadence (with optional cadence monitor) and heart rate (if you have a Polar heart rate monitor) to assess and improve overall cycling efficiency. For over two decades, CompuTrainer has been helping athletes realize their true cycling potential. With more podium finishes than any other trainer on the market, it’s no surprise they are the top choice for professional athletes and training coaches around the world. Whatever type of cyclist you are – a triathlete, a road racer, a weekend warrior or a fitness fanatic – CompuTrainer can be a valuable tool in helping you reach your goals.

CompuTraining at Higher Gear

Our boutique studio in Wilmette has space for up to 8 cyclists to ride simultaneously. We have a wide selection of courses and videos available – including the Sufferfest series and many IronMan courses. We’ll also have (limited) storage space

While riders share a course or a workout, each person rides to his/her ability, based on his/her respective power output (FTP or Functional Threshold Power). Once a month, at the beginning of each month, we will test and retest to determine each person’s FTP so that riders are challenged and can progress all season.
