Here is what veteran HOPers have to say:

Chris Braese Chris Braese, Arlington, TN

"The House of Pain was the single best thing I did for my off season training and getting myself prepared for the upcoming racing season."

Brett Shanaman Brett Shanaman, Germantown, TN

"The House of Pain sessions, and BPC coaching in general, have been key in my progression as a cyclist over the past three years.  I'm a stronger and smarter rider and a better all-around athlete, and I stay motivated to train even when life gets hectic."


Who are these crazy people?
HOPers are working professionals, moms, dads, and people just like you who put priority on athletic improvement. We always have a great mix of competitive, recreational, and performance oriented cyclists, as well as a number of triathletes.
What are the workouts like?

Each workout is focused on increasing functional threshold power and efficiency through manipulation of cycling specific cadence, body position, pedal stroke, and mental focus. Basically, you will become a more powerful and efficient cyclist. We focus mostly on cycling efficiency early on in the program, and then we move to more intense threshold focused training later in the program.

Each session will also include 20-30 minutes of STRETCHING and CORE WORK! This is another part of the program you won’t find anywhere else. A strong core and body delivers more force to the pedal, and is less prone to normal cycling related injuries.Weak muscles have trouble activating, which is bad news for efficiency and maximal power.  Some athletes lack so much strength we have seen huge jumps in power after just a few of our strength sessions.

Why is the House of Pain better than other videos or online classes?
The House of Pain program has been refined over the last 5 years and is structured such that every session from the first to the last has a specific purpose, focus, and training load. Unlike other video series, it’s imperative to do the sessions in order to maximize results. We are not just trying to get you through the winter months without losing your mind, we are focusing on very specific cycling skills, and very specific intervals, at specific times, so when you hit the road in March people wonder what the heck you did over the winter. All you have to do is join us and follow along.
What do I need to attend?
All you need is a bike, trainer, an internet connection, and a computer/tablet/smartphone with a mic. Webcams are encouraged but they are optional. Oh, you will likely also need a sweat towel and plenty of fluids. We do recommend having at least one powered speaker since most built in speakers aren’t loud enough to drown out certain bike trainers. These can be purchased for as little as $15 and are totally portable and USB chargeable. Here are some choices on Amazon.
How does the online class work?

Screen Shot 2016-10-06 at 9.21.48 AMWe will be using a video conferencing solution called Zoom Cloud Meetings. They offer browser based video conferencing, as well as apps for your tablet and smartphone. It allows us to see your smiling (or pain) faces and also allows interaction with our coaches as well as with other HOP athletes. You can ask questions, motivate others, and even make fun of your buddies. Or you can just sit back and follow along. But all in all, we are all working and improving together.

What if a member of my household wants to do the class as well?
No problem. Just keep in mind you will only have one seat in the class in case you are separated at any point. You will also need to purchase the FTP Only add on if they want to attend the 3 live FTP tests. 
What if I have friends come and do the class with me from time to time?
For each person you invite to your personal HOP, their first session is on us, but we ask they join the HOP Group List. After that, we will send out direct payment links during the session and they simply pay $10 per session to join in on your suffering.
What if I just want to do a class from time to time on my own?
If there are seats available, we will notify our HOP Group List first, and seats are sold for $15 per session on a first come first serve basis. Once we have received payment, you will get a link to join the class within 1 hour of start time.
Will we ever see you guys in person?
If you are local or want to make the drive, then absolutely! We have partnered with Peak Potential Physiotherapy and Wellness in Collierville, TN to host three FTP tests at their facility. It’s going to be quite the sight, so don’t miss those if you can help it. The first one will be our very first session on December 1st. If you can’t make it, we will see you online!

Still not convinced? We are so confident in this program, we are offering everyone a 30 Day Money Back Guarantee. If you haven't learned anything in 30 days (roughly 8 sessions), and aren't improving, we don't want your money.

Class size will be limited to the first 40 athletes to sign up! Don't wait to secure your spot!

*Recorded sessions will remain on demand for 60 days after the final HOP session.
