Introducing the "Beginners Group Ride"
Starting this Saturday the 24th, Endure it! will offer a beginners group ride. This ride is intended for athletes looking for a good workout but perhaps intimidated by the intermediate and advanced ride's distance and pace. It is also early in the season so athletes may want to start with a group offering appropriate distance and pace.
The ride will begin promptly at 7:30 from the Willowbrook store (75th and Kingery). It will be led by Endure it! coach Rick Lapinski. The route is a rolling 25 mile loop and will be "No Drop", meaning Rick will stay with the last rider so nobody is left alone.
***Also, HELP WANTED - we are currently looking for employment at Endure it! Life in downtown Naperville. If interested please stop by that locaton to fill out an application.

Computrainer and the Endure It! Group Rides
COMPUTRAINER AND THE ENDURE IT! GROUP RIDES
This weekend will be the last of the weekend computrainer classes. I would like to thank everyone who participated in our most successful season ever. We trained over 100 athletes each week and the improvement in aerobic threshold power through our testing was very impressive.
We will offer maintenance sessions all summer long during the early morning for those interested in not losing the valuable power gained this winter. In our experience it is very difficult to reproduce many of the training system sessions outside as easily as it is on the computrainer.
The endure it! group rides will begin April 24th, the details are on the Calendar. Please remember to ride cautiously and safely. By participating in the rides you agree to ride at your own risk and Endure it! Sports LLC and it's coaches, volunteers, and employees are not responsible in any way.
Also, as this will mark the fourth year of our group rides and many know the routes, please be aware the Endure it staff may not be in attendance for all the rides. David is coaching soccer this spring, Chris and Jason have a heavy racing schedule, Drew is getting married, Ron is racing a lot or hungover, Erik is working and needs rest, Kathleen is just too good for us, Mary Mars is recovering from knee surgery, etc.
Those athletes who continue to work consistently in the front group of the intermediate ride will serve themselves better by challenging themselves in the advanced ride...just saying!
Have a safe and healthy outdoor season!!
