Functional fitness. Balance, core, balance ball, bosu ball, stretching, etc.

I took a guy that ran a 1/2 marathon, did some tri's and is really strong from weight training. In 60 minutes my workout almost dropped him. No more than 40 seconds rest between exercises. The balance work is a killer. Strength, do supersets! High reps and high sets, push and pull days.

Watch my Vlog, it's a short clip of work that captures the core, upper, and lower body. Efficient and you only need 60 min. Often I do 60 aerobics at one time of the day and 60 of something else later in the day.

You have time to get a plan. You are doing well. Execute.

Mostly just keep moving and pumping up the cardio in various ways.

If the gym isn't your forte try striking outdoors for walks/jogs/hikes/cross country skiing/ice skating.

Strength training is also important to be at the top of your game, especially core and upper body.

Between these and your trainer work...?

You'll be ready to SPARK come spring!

Ok folks, I need advice. I'm stuck indoor training on my CycleOps Fluid2 for more or less the next 3 to 4 months. My last ride before going indoors was a half-metric. I'd like to be in a place where I can give a full metric a shot within the first few weeks of getting back outside.

Any suggestions on a solid training plan to get there? I'm open to any suggestions. I do have a gym membership available to me on top of my trainer (and tennis 3 nights a week), but the gyms get UGLY come January 1st with all of the new years resolution idiots who clog the machines for 3 months until they quit. So i'd like to avoid gyms if possible, but they're not out of the question.

So, how should I go about preparing?
