On January 7 at 7 p.m. Central District Cyclery will begin its first of 12 fitness sessions aimed at improving bicycle performance by strengthening one's core and improving range of motion.

This is the second year that Central District Cyclery will host the classes at its downtown location at 52 Monroe Center.

The first session will be spent assessing one's range of mobility and flexibility. Each Tuesday afterwards will focus on increasing those points and tracking progress in order to strengthen core muscles.

The classes will be led by certified personal trainer Emily Bernath, who regularly leads group exercises at the downtown MVP Metro Club. Bernath is an endurance athlete who has run seven half marathons and two RiverBank 25k races.

"A typical evening will entail high intensity intervals utilizing body weight exercises," says Bernath.

The 12 week session will culminate with the Barry-Roubaix bike race in Hastings, Michigan. The Barry-Roubaix is the largest gravel road bicycle race in the country.

Registration is $45 for all 12 sessions or $5 per drop in.
