Working out with Wessling


We are encouraging everyone to listen to our leaders and practice social distancing to ensure we beat this Pandemic. PNG athlete and all-around bad ass John Wessling has put together some cycling workouts for all of us to follow while we are spending time inside.


Hey everyone! My name is John Wessling, I wanted to tell you a little about me, I’m a former NCAA Collegiate skier, current USA cycling mtb Cat 1 national champ in short track and XC. I’m currently coaching collegiate Skiers, and UCLA’s cycling program, I’m a fitness advisor for some of the world’s best SX/Motocross racers but at the end of the day I’m just like you! I love seeing the athletes I train succeed and with everything going on my athletes are on hold and I’m putting my energy into helping you. These workouts can be done on a spin bike, bicycle with a trainer, or even rowers. These are the same workouts my top athletes use during the season so enjoy training like a pro!
