THE DVD:

This DVD is perfect for after your rides or races. Come back from your ride, pop in the DVD, and loosen those tight muscles, revive your back, and create more suppleness to enhance recovery. Hunter guides you through his series of yoga poses designed specifically to address the needs of cyclists and triathletes. Still images of each pose give the viewer a good look at what they’re going for. Hunter’s guidance and a relaxing soundtrack complete the experience. We hope you enjoy the benefits of yoga and incorporate it into your training program.

As a coach, Hunter makes sure to look at an athlete as a whole person and excels at designing custom programs that maximize an athlete’s potential. “I believe we are human beings working closely with other human beings, and it’s important that, as a coach, I work hard to find your strengths and weaknesses and help you improve your skills, then develop a realistic plan that works for life.”

WHY YOGA:

Recovery is a major component of any athlete's training plan, and that's why Hunter Allen has practiced yoga for more than ten years. After exploring it for himself, he put together a series of poses targeted specifically for cyclists. At his groundbreaking power camps in the late 1990s, Hunter began integrating yoga into his post-ride routine with his athletes. The response was overwhelming. Campers loved it, and yoga has been a component of Peaks Coaching Group power camps ever since. After much prodding from his athletes, Hunter decided it was time to videotape the routine to share with cyclists everywhere. Here it is.

ABOUT HUNTER:

Hunter Allen is widely known as one of the top experts in the world in coaching endurance athletes using power meters. His goal has always been to teach athletes how to maximize their training and racing potential through professional analysis of their power data. He has become USA Cycling's go-to guy on the subject of power training.
