What is Turbo Studio
Now in our tenth year of operation, Turbo Studio is Sydney's first dedicated Indoor Cycle Training House catering specifically to the needs of cyclists and triathletes. Since we opened our doors we have evolved into outdoor squad training, one to one Coaching, touring and training camps as well as our Bravehearts Turbo Studio Masters Race Team which is our not for profit project in aid of Bravehearts charity.
Indoor Sessions are conducted using your own bike mounted on our computerised ergometers and sessions are load controlled meaning there is no gear changing required. Our trainers feed the required load of intensity to your back wheel according to the custom written sessions and your level of current fitness (established during your first session with us). From there we work with you to drive up your cycle fitness through regular attendance.
We suggest you book into a regular group session using the discounted 'introductory pass' available to new members ($20) where we will introduce you to our method of training. Taking part in a regular session also allows you to get a feel for the trainer along with the great camaraderie that exists within a group workout. If you are unable to bring your own bike (it is our preference that you use your own bike) we have several road bikes available to use.
The Benefits of Indoor Training
With more cyclists and triathletes discovering the great advantages of training indoor, there is no denying what the converted now know to be fact. Work on a trainer is not replicable outdoor as it allows for specificity and intensity without the distraction and risk involved on the road. As you're not sidelined by outside elements (wind/rain) you can hit the bullseye every single time leaving nothing to chance, even allowing you to make a better estimation of your cycle fitness level by goal day.
A Quick Glance at our Session Types
Sixty minutes of High Intensity Interval work at your FTP in 'ergometer mode'. Establishing your FTP is first and foremost on the check list as throughout the sixty minutes you will be working through intervals that feed percentages of your FTP to the back wheel through the resistance created by our Computrainers that works together with our software. The work you do at TS will see your FTP progressively climb and as power climbs speed increases with it. Read more about how our sessions operate here.

The second and more 'precise extraction' process is to conduct a Performance Test. Carrying out an FTP test is arguably one of the hardest procedures you will go through on a bike. FTP is indicative of an intensity that is similar to a blood lactate threshold, which can be highly predictive of performance in a range of endurance events and distances
Conducting these tests on a regular basis (every six-eight weeks) keeps your training honest and any improvements (or lack of!) transparent.
I've been describing Turbo Studio to my friends as legal doping. Adding one TS session a week to my (limited) training schedule boosted my riding and gave me a competitive edge. I know when I do each session, whilst it's always challenging, I'm building power that I will see a real return from when I'm out on the road.
Earlier this year I started a structured coached training program with Turbo Studio in addition to my indoor training with them. Having a program which has been tailored to my goals, timetable - and personality, has been the best investment in cycling that I have ever made. With Turbo + Coaching I've been able to very quickly step up to a level well beyond my best past performances and I can see a clear path to achieving the cycling goals I've set for myself.
By applying the structure and guidance provided, I've found that I'm getting much greater value out of every training session I do. I'm enjoying my riding much more and I'm seeing the results every week. I've also learnt a lot about applying nutrition, stretching and rest to deliver sustainable performance - areas that didn't get much focus from me in the past.
The attention, guidance and feedback I've received from Jo has been outstanding. With Jo's input I am training much smarter and with a clear understanding of how each session will carry me towards my goals.Shane Mattiske Sydney
