Njinga came recommended to me by my partner and I immediately enrolled in their eight-week Fire Starter group indoor training programme. I'd never done a spinning class before let alone been on a wattbike! I had no idea what I was capable of.
The Fire Starter programme
We started the programme off with some nutritional and pedal technique advice. In the second session, we did our FTP test to give us a baseline and numbers to target to improve. In hindsight, I probably went too easy on my first test. I didn't know what I could sustain for 20 minutes and didn't want to burn out and embarrass myself before the end.
After this, we had training sessions twice a week learning a range of skills: endurance; hill climbing; sprinting; and the importance of stretching.
All the things you need to prepare you for whatever goals you've set yourself.
Togo, our coach, pushed us to achieve, coaching us not only physically but also mentally.
I had become stronger and fitter
