Location: Pop-Up Training or "Pain Cave”?
It’s possible to work out anywhere on trainers and rollers: apartment, cellar, garage, on a balcony, in your laundry room or even in the driveway. As you understand your limitations best, it should be easy to find a suitable trainer or set of rollers. If you have to set up your equipment for every ride and are working with limited space, then collapsible trainers are the perfect choice. These are available in entry-level models, such as those from Elite (Novo Force), to high-tech models such as the KICKR V5 from Wahoo.
The most ideal solution, of course, is to have your equipment permanently installed in a separate room or other indoor area. Some refer to such spaces, often decorated with aspirational posters or wall art, as a “pain cave.” If yours is anything like a real cave, this area would probably not have a window nearby, in which case a fan will soon become your best friend. Wahoo offers the KICKR HEADWIND , which can even be paired with a training computer via ANT+ or Bluetooth to adjust the fan’s flow during your ride.
