About this course

How does your cell turn food into motion? What causes a person to have a bad ride or race? What type of training is best to prepare for adventure riding? The core of all of those questions lie in understanding cellular energy metabolism. This course focuses around understanding how a cell creates its fuel through metabolic processes, as well as how that applies to coaching and training. We recommend this as a precursor to any of our training program courses. This course is worth 1 NICA CEU
