I live in New York City, and currently don’t have space in my home for a trainer. I’ve used TR for a number of years at the gym, on a Stages spin bike that has a bluetooth power meter. With COVID, this is becoming problematic. Gyms have finally reopened, but masks are required at all times. With multiple mask changes, sweet spot is possible, but I can’t really manage VO2 or threshold workouts. I sweat, the mask saturates, and the mask sucks in when I breath. It’s miserable, and probably not great training. Outside is great, but doing structured work in the city is a struggle for a number of reasons.
I’m looking to finally get an indoor set up of my own, but the issue is space. We’re cramped as it is, and I have a 1 year old who gets into everything. Does anyone have a recommendation for a trainer that has a very small footprint while set up, and ideally an even smaller one when stored? I was thinking that something like the Wahoo Bike might be good since there is no front wheel.
Does anyone have experience training/living in a small space? Unfortunately my solution from my bachelor days of just leaving the trainer set up in the middle of the living room at all times is no longer considered acceptable. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
