Third Annual San Diego Velo Bella Spring Camp

March 25, 2011 · Print This Article

Nearly two dozen Velo Bellas attended the 3rd Annual San Diego Velo Bella camp at FunctionSmart in Sorrento Valley and deemed it — FANTASTIC!

Athletes from San Diego and North County rotated through three clinics- simulated outdoor riding on the CompuTrainer with Gino Cinco, Core Strength with Chris Hebeler, and Flexibility led by Jenny Skorcz-Gadbois from Serenity in Sport.

Jenny’s class combined the fundamentals of yoga and pilates to loosen up tight muscles and ready participants for the morning’s activities. A cyclist herself, Jenny knew exactly what Bellas needed to be strong, yet flexible for the bike.

With TRX straps hanging from the rafters, Chris’s core class had Bellas jumping, squatting, swinging, pulling, and pushing.

Gino proved that riding on a trainer doesn’t have to be boring.  In fact, when you and your bike are hooked into his CompuTrainer system with several of your teammates it can be downright fun (and sweaty)!

During a brief snack and recovery break, Becki McClintock explained lactate threshold testing and how it can improve your running and cycling performance. She’ll be conducting testing sessions by appointment at UCPT.

Julie Lestyan brushed up Bellas’ basic bike maintenance and minor repair skills to ready the bikes for the road.

Bellas were also asked to bring food and personal hygiene items to donate to the Women’s Resource Center in Oceanside.  We were able to fill two boxes with items to help the women and children at this facility!

Thank you to Gino Cinco and FunctionSmart for hosting the San Diego Bellas for the third year in a row. Thank you to PowerBar for supplying lots of great products that kept Bellas moving throughout the workout as well these sponsors who so generously donated items for the Goody Bags!
