How to Find the Best Indoor Training Setup for You

Indoor training is a very efficient way to train and its popularity grows not only with professional athletes, but with endurance athletes of all levels.

The benefits of indoor training are numerous, and go beyond just being able to work out regardless of the weather. Your indoor workouts are no longer dependent on daylight, whether you are an early bird or a night owl. Let it be cold and wet wintery days or mid-afternoon sweltery summertime, your training can still go on (not to mention the safety factor of not having to worry about cars).

If you need to manage your time efficiently, having all necessary equipment at hand, in your home or basement for example, is a great advantage, and will give you more freedom to conduct your workout around the time most convenient to you.

At Trivolution-Training, we use a "reverse periodization" training methodology with all our professional and age-group athletes. That means that we work with very short but high intensive sessions on the bike, on the run and in the pool early in the season and get longer and more race-specific during the months leading up to race season.

Speed comes first, and we want you to get faster at shorter distances before we develop your big engine which, of course, is what's necessary to complete a 70.3 or long-distance triathlon.

If you are an age-group athlete who has only a limited time for his or her training, "reverse periodization" can be the key to unlock your hidden potential. For these types of workouts, a dedicated indoor training space can help you maximize your training time and really dial-in to the speed and power efforts required to see real improvements come race season.

But how to properly set up an indoor training space? Below are three different versions of and indoor training setup for the beginner, the intermediate and the advanced indoor training athlete.
