Athlete Corner: Meet Derek Oskutis


During the last four years, I spent my time training with the triathlon team at the United States Naval Academy. Even though the school is located in one of our country's most beautiful cities, the elements that we had to deal with to prepare for our national championship race in early April forced us to train in some harsh conditions. More often than not, most of our cycling training had to be done inside due to snow, ice, wind and rain. However, our team made inside riding a lot more enjoyable and effective by working the Spinning program into our training. Our team room was turned into what we referred to as the "sweat chamber." All of us would huddle into the room surrounded by each other, a screaming coach, three industrial grade fans and a blasting sound system. On some days, we would have one of our team members, who is a certified Spinning instructor, lead some of our workouts. I believe that, even more than the great training, the team atmosphere we created in our Spinning room was one of the reasons we won multiple national championship titles.
