Better. Faster. Stronger.


Science-Backed, Power-Zone Interval Training to Develop Strength & Endurance

Designed by World-Renowned Cycling Coach and Sports MEdicine PhysIcian, Dr. Max Testa

Since 2011, we’ve offered a cycling training service that is cutting edge, informative and relevant. Whether you are training solely to stay in shape for a social group ride, participate in a granfondo, compete in a triathlon or move up in category racing, we attempt to make our workouts progressive and time effective.

This is not a “spin” class. This is cycling training designed to produce fitness and performance gains.

Given the medical and professional cycling background of our program’s chief designer, Max Testa, BAM’s Power Program for cyclists incorporates effective, scientific training modalities used by top athletes. Although our goal is not to make a professional of everyone, we get great satisfaction in offering a parallel training course that fits the needs and goals of our participants.

Our cycling Power Program uses a scientific approach to assist athletes with their training goals. Participants can enjoy a tailor-made training program based on their individual fitness profile. Using your own bike and an instrument for measuring power, exercise intensity is precisely prescribed whether you are triathlete training for an Ironman or a novice rider wanting to stay in shape.

Our program includes 4 big phases of training throughout the year, with smaller blocks making up each phase. Throughout the year, we hold classes two or three times a week. During each class, an instructor guides the participants through a training program, the “class,” based on 5 power ranges. Each participant will train on their personal bike, which is mounted on a Wahoo KICKR or Computrainer, and refer to their individual power zone recommendations retrieved from their individual fitness profile.

The fitness gains are relevant for all types of bike riders: road cyclists, mountain bikers, gravel/cross cycling, triathlon, etc.


Our Power Program works for:


All Ages


All Levels

Beginner - Intermediate - Advanced - Elite - Pro

All Formats

Track - Road - Triathlon - Trail - Mountain - Cross - Etc.

All Distances

Crit, Fondo, Sprint, Olympic, Ironman, Etc.


Results BY Science


Cultivate four aspects of your health:



Climb, sprint and pass with confidence.



Push steadily from start to finish.


Aerobic Fitness

Produce speed under stress and fatigue.


Ability to Recover

Recycle lactate faster and more efficiently.


As you train, you will see growth and improvements in your ability to create power (measured as watts) and to sustain that level of work for longer periods of time (often referred to as ‘FTP,’ the maximum power you can sustain steadily for an hour).

Baseline and periodic assessments will indicate how your fitness is changing over time. You will learn about measures commonly used to assess one’s fitness, such as FTP (Functional Threshold of Power), LT1 (Lactate Threshold 1) and LT2 (Lactate Threshold 2), and the 5 power zones, around which our class intervals are structured.

A comprehensive, Individual + Annualized approach

Structured Training Phases for the Entire Year



November - December

The winter months are prime time to lay down a base of fitness upon which a successful season can be built. This phase is designed you ease you back into riding after likely taking lighter weeks following your end-of-season events. Classes offered:

  • Two 90-minute classes on weekdays (MW 5:30a, 9:30a and 5:30p; TTh 5:30a)

  • One 90+ minute class on weekends, progressively longer through the phase (times vary)

  • Special classes during weeks with major US holidays (Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years)



January - February

After the opening 2 months of the winter season’s Base Phase, the Build phase includes workouts designed to dramatically ramp up your bike fitness in preparation for event season. This phase is similar in structure to the Base phase, with increasingly longer classes on weekends.

At this point, we offer a longer class on weekend mornings suggested for long-course athletes (70.3, 140.6, cycling events over 50 miles) and a later class, also in the morning, that is a bit shorter, suggested for short-course athletes (sprint, olympic, youth, 50 milers and shorter):

  • Two 90-minute classes on weekdays (MW 5:30a, 9:30a and 5:30p; TTh 5:30a)

  • One 120+ minute class on weekends, progressively longer through the phase (times vary)

  • Special classes during weeks with major US holidays (e.g. MLK Day, President’s Day)


Race Prep

March - May

As our athletes count down to race day or compete in early-season events, classes focus on event- and race-specific efforts to tune up and dial in for the big day. Additionally, warmer weather means riding outside, so class structures shift to support the transition to outdoor riding.

This phase offers:

  • Two 90-minute classes on weekdays

  • One 90+ minute class on weekends, duration dependent on your target race format

  • Weekend class adaptable to riding outside


Maintain, Race + Recover

June - October

Riding outside is important because that’s where events and races happen, and nothing replaces training in race-day conditions. However, we don’t recommend cutting indoor sessions completely once the sun comes out. There is still a critical place in the summer/event/racing season for time on the trainer. Without the distractions and interruptions of riding on the road (e.g. traffic, lights, road conditions, changing terrain), it’s much easier to get in quality intervals. For that reason, the Power Program includes this phase with classes all summer so you can maintain the power edge you worked so hard all winter to obtain.

This phase of about 22 weeks is the is the most flexible, and your exact arcs of race-prep, race week and recovery can be fluid within it. As each person’s event schedule varies, instructors offer suggestions on how you can adapt classes for whether you are approaching or coming down from an event. Especially during this phase, be sure to ask questions during live sessions to get what you need. And if you are viewing recorded sessions, feel free to contact us for guidance on adjusting your FTP and zones around your events.

The Maintain, Race + Recover phase offers:

  • One 90-minute class on weekdays (W 5:30a and 9:30a)

  • One 90+ minute class on weekends, adaptable to riding outside (varies)


Flexible, Adaptable, Complete

Complementary Strength Plans - with BAM Membership

Power Program participants with a BAM Membership receive strength plans each week. These plans — written by our NSCA Certified Personal Trainer — complement work done on the bike, bolstering stability and correcting imbalances and weaknesses that may hold you back from your best . . . or lead to injury down the road. Make the most of your time in the saddle with a complementary strength regimen.

Attend Live, in the BAM HQ Studio

Attend live in the studio at BAM HQ in Sandy, UT. The schedule for each month is posted near the beginning of the month prior. Weekdays included in monthly class subscription. Weekdays + weekends included with BAM Membership.

Attend Live Virtually, by Video Stream

Can’t make it to the studio? No problem. Join classes LIVE through our private video stream. See the instructor, see the studio, see the workout — all from your desktop or mobile device — AND (optionally) interact live through the chat or your own web cam. Included in BAM Membership. May also pay per class, or choose the Remote-Only subscription.

BONUS Features with BAM Membership or on the Remote-Only subscription:

Can’t make it to the studio OR during a live broadcast? We’ve got you covered. Within a few hours of class, we post recordings online for playback inside the Power Program online portal.

Files of the Sessions to Use with TrainerRoad, Zwift, etc.

While our priority suggestion is for you to attend classes live, follow along with the instructor and benefit from the energy of a group, we understand this isn’t always possible. To make the most of your training on your own, you can (in addition to viewing the recordings) download the workout in formats compatible with leading training services such as TrainerRoad and Zwift.

Upon starting a BAM Membership or the Remote-Only plan, you will get access to the BAM Power Program online portal.

Marc Harrison, MD:

“I have enjoyed marked improvement in my cycling secondary to the organized and physiologically based indoor training program prescribed for me in the BAM Power Program.

“I find that I am stronger, have better endurance and have a better understanding of my personal capability. I love the fact that my training zones are based on my own personal capabilities. I can’t wait to see what I can do next year!”


Tiffany Barnes:

“I joined the Power Program as a beginner cyclist in 2014. Since joining, my strength and progress as an athlete have skyrocketed. My watts have improved every year significantly as well.

“The program has really helped me hit the road even stronger than before in the spring. I owe it all to the BAM coaches and classes offered! Don’t hesitate! Sign up now! It’s a game changer!”


Larry Peterson:

“A shout-out for the cycling classes at BAM. I participated in the very first class in 2011 and have only missed one or two since then. The coaches and staff are knowledgeable and fun and the facilities are great. The classes are the only way to maintain riding condition year round. They get 5 stars!”

"I did the Power Program as part of my first full year of consistent training. Right before Boulder 70.3, I decided to take a second lactate threshold test, and my levels had jumped by over 30%. I still have a long way to go to be considered a good cyclist, still probably another 30%. But honestly, next to my wife, my biggest cheerleaders have been the coaches at BAM."

Wahoo KICKR Rentals + Sales


The Wahoo KICKR is a smart trainer that provides an outdoor riding experience indoors. With the accompanying Wahoo app, you can adjust resistance from your phone. It’s an excellent choice* for participating in the BAM Power Program remotely. More product info.


Rent - 6 months for $300.

Purchase - Contact us for pricing.


*Having a KICKR is NOT required to participate. All you need is a bike, any stationary trainer with resistance and an internet connection. We recommend the Wahoo KICKR as it is the latest and greatest, but—really—you can use any stationary trainer. If your trainer resistance is controlled manually by you getting off the bike to turn a dial, then you’ll need a HRM or power meter to guide you through shifting gears to get you into the right zone.
