At Iron Hawk Endurance in Waterloo, it's all about personal training. Here, technology has taken the workout to a BYOB level. Bring your own bike. 

The bikes using a training system called Kickr, where staff helps the rider remove their rear tire and fix their chain on the trainers gear. 

The beauty of this technology, like foot sensors and heart rate monitors allow the staff to set parameters that specifically meet the rider. 

The classes, the first of its kind in the metro, came way from Brad Hildrebrant, the former wrestling coach at Omaha Skutt. 

"I love coaching," he said. "I think it was what I was meant to do." 

Now, from a short match to a long ride, from high schoolers to spinning parents, some things have obviously changed. But, Hildrebrant's favorite change is the technology. 

"Once you get done with that class you'll get an email that day, that gives you that data," he said. "Your heart rate, your rpms, the amount of power that you put out and it breaks it down into different categories so it just gives me more information as a coach to coach you better individually."
