We are in our 13th year of running CompuTrainer classes and they are better than ever with the Perf Pro software! The HPC Training Center is equipped with 25 CompuTrainers, 3 projectors, and many fans. CompuTrainer’s MultiRider system offers the most high-tech and motivating method of indoor training, a necessity given our harsh winters and busy roads. Whether you are a competitive racer or a weekend warrior, HPC’s CompuTrainer classes will help you reach your fitness goals.
The CompuTrainer looks like a normal bicycle trainer, but collects data every second that is computed and displayed on a screen right before your eyes. The system gives you instantaneous updates on power output, speed, gradient, distance, and other critical metrics that help you get the best workout possible! Not only that, but the social atmosphere of the classes help even the most trainer-weary riders look forward to indoor workouts.
We follow a classic periodization cycling program built around specific intensity factors and training stress. Each class is 1.5-2.0 hours in length. Please bring your bike, cycling clothing, shoes, heart rate monitor, a towel, and plenty of hydration…be prepared to sweat and to get an awesome workout guided by one of HPC’s experienced coaches!

Tips For Our Classes:
- The first session of CompuTrainer class is based on improving pedal stroke, moderate climbing simulations, and general base build transition.
- The second session of CompuTrainer class is based on improving climbing efficiency, increasing strength and power endurance, and honing time trial skills – basically getting your Functional Threshold Power up!
- We recommend that if you plan on attending class twice per week, you sign up for either a Tuesday/Thursday OR Wednesday/Saturday combination. This will ensure that the classes maximize your progressive training in the program.
- It is best to do either an FTP test or a VO2 test before starting classes so that you have your own current, accurate physical data to use during the sessions to gain the most benefit.
