Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is TrainingPeaks?

    We use TrainingPeaks to deliver your plan – the world’s most popular online and mobile coaching platform. TrainingPeaks is free to use, an online calendar that lets you record, track, and analyze your training sessions.

    TrainingPeaks has features enabling you to get as in-depth as you like, including the ability to export your workouts to your training devices (Garmin, TrainerRoad, Zwift etc.) and follow them in real-time

  • Why is threshold FTP so important?

    Lactate threshold (FTP) or Functional Threshold Power is defined as the intensity of exercise at which lactate begins to accumulate in the blood at a faster rate than it can be removed. This causes the body to generate " muscle energy" inefficiently, and we can only sustain this state for a short amount of time.

    The advantage of having a high lactate threshold is that you can operate at a higher intensity for a longer time, and therefore achieve higher performance.

  • What do i need before i start?

    To follow these training plans you need to have a power meter on your bicycle or a heart rate monitor with a cyclo-computer. You can use MTB, Road Bike, or Gravel Bike - or a combination of those. You can choose to upload your workouts into your cyclo-computer or Zwift and follow the workouts in real-time, or you can follow it on your own from your memory.

  • What is entry fitness level?

    It's ideal to start these training plans after a build phase, which means 8 to 12 weeks of training building your aerobic fitness.

  • What coach support means?

    All of our Training Plans include coach support accessible via email or Slack app. We use the Slack application for our online and closed community which you'll be invited to. Our qualified coach is available to answer questions anytime during the first use of your plan.
