Why is Rider Fitness / Conditioning Important?

Riding, at any level and in any discipline, requires you to have the appropriate strength, power, endurance and stamina, along with the range of motion (ROM) for the movements required.

Why? ……to ensure that your body is equipped to deal with the demands of the sport so not only can you perform, but you are at a lesser risk from injury and can enjoy riding more without all the aches and pains afterwards.

How long are the RiderCise Signature Programmes?

There are 3 Programmes, Foundation, Intermediate and Advanced, with each lasting 6 weeks.

What level should I start at?

I recommend everyone start at Foundation or Foundation Maintenance (if exercising regularly).

Foundation helps you develop body awareness, control and the correct engagement of muscles to perform movements. In order to ride better, with fewer aches and pains and more enjoyment, we need to learn to use the correct muscles within the correct movement patterns that our bodies are designed for.
