The Zone Based Training power assessment is our way of getting to know the athlete. Prior to your session, you will fill out a profile assessment online. On the day of the power assessement, you will come to the Zone performance lab to complete a zone test and a 20 minute FTP test. This test is completed on your bike, but we will provide all other equipment needed, including a HR strap and Power Meter.
The results from the two tests will be run through the Zone cycling regression model as well as compared against results from hundreds of other cyclists to provide us a good indication of your current fitness level as well as your current FTP power. Zone will provide you an estimate of how much you can improve if you choose one of the Zone coaching plans.

Here at Zone, we have an off-season training program that we think will revolutionize the way people train in the off-season. It's like no other off season training program you have ever completed. It's been so succesful that we know your power will increase at least 10% if you are tough enough to stick with the program.
The Zone Training program is my most popular coaching program because we test every week and every athlete coached has seen double digit power increases in less than 12 weeks. The power gains seen in the zone off-season training program will provide the framework to help you achiever your cycling goals. You are provided with the framework for success with the Excel based templates that measures you based on 3 key milestones each week. This is a self-coached program, you will key your information into the program after each ride and if you follow the framework you will be successful.
The Zone Training program is 8-12 weeks. Some athletes continue to see power increases through week 12 and some taper off after 8 weeks. Once we see the increases taper off, we will transition directly into the coaching package of your choice.

$299.99 for 3 Months (requires a power meter, see Power Meter Rental)
I require a power meter for all of my programs. If you don't have a power meter but you really want to get started, please ask me about my power meter rental program. Depending on your current bike set-up, it is likely we have a power meter for you to rent for as long as you like. Also, if you would like to rent-to-own a new power meter, we have that option available as well. You can own one in as little as 6 months depending on the model. At Zone Based Training, our exclusive power meter provider is Power Meter City.
If you are ready to purchase a power meter, ask about our Power Meter City discount for ZBT athletes.
