The structured programs just work, nothing more to say.
No more procrastinating for me

Never realised how much time and effort I would waste thinking and planning my own training! Trainerroad does it all for you, listen to the podcast and join the forum too, learn while you train, wished I’d joined up years ago.

Thanks to the guys at Trainer Road for the great App and Podcast. The training plans are great and really help my cycling. In addition the podcast and forums provide a great resource if you want to know more about the science or to help with issues we all face as cyclists. Highly Recommended
Trainer Road-Review
by Shell gel on 2020/05/05 16:50
I have been with Trainer Road for the last 3 years starting as a relative novice. It has helped me enormously to get a fully structured training programme for races both Road and Time Trialling as well as completing large participant events during this time. The advice is very useful and always when required, especially about seat and body positioning. This advice is remembered out on the road and really makes a difference. The plans allow you to train to be ready. I fully endorse the product.
Best choice I’ve made
by John10000008 on 2020/05/01 09:45
I’ve been using TrainerRoad for 6 months now for long distance triathlon training. I can’t rate it highly enough, following the plans I’ve seen good improvements in running and swimming and massive improvements in cycling. My easy aerobic rides are now at the same level as my threshold rides at the start! Plan builder is excellent as is the calendar! A great product, I highly recommend giving it a go if you want to improve your fitness!
Don’t even have the app 😂

The plans are perfect for triathlon and I can flex the sessions around other commitments (tri and non tri). Have had 2 occasions to ask for support and the help desk team were amazing. 6/5 stars, if there was such a rating. Definitely secured my repeat purchase and ongoing loyalty. Thanks.

Structured plans that WILL make a faster cyclist

Regardless of your current ability, following aTR plan will give you structure and advice that will ensure you improve as a cyclist. They also have a great podcast every week.

Just works

ABSOLUTELY THE BEST APP FOR TRAINING!
Great training app
by 1471975 on 2020/02/04 19:53
Loving the app use as a training aid in preparation for the Flanders sportive in April. Only one slight gripe with the app is that I would prefer it if the in exercise instructions were also audible and not just written as they can be missed at times when not focused solely on the screen. Would give 5 stars if not for this.
Love it

Incredible tool to keep you on track
by Paul Hamblin on 2020/01/29 07:36
With the plan builder, calendar and amazing workouts I feel like I have a personal coach (coach chad!). Combined with the podcast and videos TR is the thing that gets me up in the morning to train. Love the regular updates and active community. If you want to get faster then stop playing games and download TR!

by MarkFTP on 2020/01/18 20:20
I have been riding TR for about 3 years now. It is totally awesome. It’s an unbelievably efficient system for getting you cycling fit in a minimum of time. I have stuck to the very smart training programs with 3 rides totalling 3.5 hours a week. Who hasn’t got time for that. Really. Do you watch that much tv? Then do it on a smart trainer! I used to use my bike with a Wahoo Kickr Snap which was seamless but have since switched to a Wattbike Atom. That works best if you switch the Atom on before you switch on the TR app. Power-based training like this with a Smart trainer especially really does make effective training as painless as possible and once you get to the harder parts of the program you have built your fitness to cope almost without realising it. Amazing. And the support is fantastic. I’ve had a few niggles with set up and the email response is rapid, helpful, and keeps going until you are sorted.
Structured training plans
by Gregslegs on 2020/01/11 14:29
In terms of value for money, i think TrainerRoad has been my best investment in my cycling. Following a structured training plan and workouts, written by a good coach, is probably the best and fastest way to improve cycling performance. I am really experienced at setting training for myself - but the TrainerRoad plans are better than i could have set for myself and offer far more variety. I am more motivated to train with TrainerRoad, and i am more confident to push myself knowing the balance between training load and recovery has been thought through by a very experienced coaching team.
Love it!
by Jamesyboy123456789 on 2020/01/02 08:16
I have used trainee road for two seasons now and I have learnt so much and improved my fitness. I would recommend it to anyone wishing to take their cycling to the next levelthrough everything from start to finish. Time will tell how it affects my season riding, but so far so good!

Complete Plans, adaptable workouts (great when short on time so you can still complete rather than cut a workout), and a fantastic analysis tool Once run workouts (syncing to Garmin watch) are there with run analysis it’ll be 6 stars
It works

TrainerRoad is not for the faint hearted but if you’re serious about being faster and are prepared to put in the work then you will see results. Cheaper than a live coach but for me it’s just as motivating. Great app, website and the podcast is also a 5 star production. Well worth the subscription.
Was good, not anymore....
by 325porte on 2019/10/25 06:20
I’ve been using this for years, mostly on my iPad & it was great, but it no longer recognises bluetooth. It cannot connect to any devices now. It thinks bluetooth is turned off, but it isn’t.... Other apps on the same device work & can see the devices, it’s just this.....😒

Pain cave love
by fatty ate all the sausages on 2019/10/24 18:05
Subscribed from day one. No frills just get on the turbo for some serious pain cave action. Decent training plans which if followed will get the results. Great option if you don't fancy an expensive coach or know you have commitments that crop up. Also you can build your own sessions, great way to operate your ERG trainer. Build them from any coaching plan into your own bespoke turbo sessions. You will need a fan.
Awesome Ironman Program

Virtually brilliant coach
by MartWil on 2019/06/03 18:25
Okay having trained with a physical coach and virtually I can say that TrainerRoad is brilliant for those of us that have the will power to commit to a structured online training regime. However, if you need someone to kick you along the way, then this program may not be for you. I have seen my fitness improve and a regular increase in FTP through consistent training and mixing it up on the trails with my MTB. Very impressed with the prescribed workouts and the degree of flexibility and the ability to specialise also. Great program!
Awesome!!!

I started using TrainerRoad about 7 years ago when I was racing this was after I had used a training program that had been special written for me, I stayed with TR because I had better results after using the specific plan.I stay with TR because I know it works, it’s well organised and the Tech department never let you down whenever you need them.
Perfect if you like structure
by jon dw on 2019/03/27 10:45
Perfect training solution and software if you like structure. The key benefit of TR is their library of plans and workouts, but increasingly their app is also getting very, very good. The calendar works great, the ability to choose variations of workouts (shorter, longer, harder, easier) is genius! Could do with better way to integrate video media but other than than that, it’s great. UPDATE: Workout variants is getting better and better - used when not feeling so good or have less time!
100% recommendation!

Experienced rider looking to improve winter training
by Wheresmecoat on 2019/02/21 21:57
So instead of spin classes and a training programme designed by a personal trainer to improve my mountain biking and endurance road riding, I decided to buy a smart trainer and use an app. After a few reads and recommendations from other experienced turbo users, I reckoned this would suit my interest i.e. Well focused, we'll planned training with emphasis on the form and ironing out bad habits. Good bits: Easy to set up Sensible training programmes (not all high intensity and max power intervals). Easy to follow on Erg and non Erg trainers Bad bits: No audible warning when text (training tips) come up on screen, so sometimes you miss bits unless you like cycling head down watching your phone. Doesn't adapt to what you're actually doing I.e. No comments if you're over our under power/cadence. Doesn't seem to adapt to your improvement, so you'll have to redo your FTP to keep it up to date.
My entire racing plan

Structured self-loathing from the top drawer
by -ETPH- on 2019/01/26 18:19
Been using on and off for over a year and now going through a programme for the winter. Very good with a dumb trainer but a revelation with a smart one. Takes all the distractions away and allows you to focus on (mitigating) the pain. Calendar option I’m finding really helpful to plan and motivate (looking back on what I’ve already done). Only just started scratching the surface of the forums and training resources. Awesome value. Thanks!
Literally the best money I’ve ever spent on cycling, and probably fitness in general.

by low-fi on 2019/01/26 12:12
I moved over from Zwift and have no regrets. The training plans are well structured, you learn about why you’re doing the intervals whilst suffering, and it’s flexible. It’s very clearly designed around the needs of cyclists, both with lots and little time to train. Zwift’s training plans, on the other hand, expect all your riding is done on the turbo trainer, which simply isn’t true for most of us. I cannot recommend Trainer Road enough.

Trainer Road Review
by veteren runnergirl on 2019/01/20 12:27
3 months in and can’t get enough. It makes training fun and something to really look forward to. The app is great and the training calendar unbelievably good. Listen to the pod casts as well. The guys that run this business are 100% committed. I wish them continued success.
Exceptional Results
by Holdam on 2019/01/19 07:49
I’m a 54 year male in the UK who’s been cycling for 5 years. I have been using Trainer Road for over a year and cannot believe how much faster I’ve got. However, the area of cycling where I’ve seen my cycling really improve is climbing hills. Before using Trainer Road by legs would start burning within moments and I would always get dropped when on a group ride. By using the programme my body has adapted so well that I no longer get dropped on the hills and instead, I’m dropping others that I’m riding with. Top marks.
Excellent
by B_wooly on 2019/01/14 12:32
Been using for 3yrs on and off but this year I have committed to completing the workouts regularly and fitness levels have increased massively along with FTP... love the new calendar updates as well as the many different alternatives provided. Excellent stuff.

Been using TR for a few years now and have played around with the competitors along the way (Zwift, Sufferfest, etc). All great tools but TR is the one I always come back to when I just want to train and get fitter. Focussed, structured and backed by a great team. Highly recommended.

The app is incredibly easy to use, coupled with the podcast...forum...calendar...It will revolutionaries your training.

Takes away the difficulty of season planning
by P E Te on 2018/12/21 14:27
The 3 phase training scheme ‘Base-Build-Specialise’ makes it incredibly easy to plan out a season of cycle training (or triathlon training) with different levels depending on experience/time constraints etc. The training plans are also a great basis when thinking about other types of training (e.g run/weight training) due to the clear focus on progression. Easily added about 20% to my FTP in less than a year with the structured progression and looking forward to going higher this year!
Amazing
by Travers Bikes on 2018/12/18 06:58
Just a great concept, very easy to build my season with easy to understand trading blocks. After listening to the podcast I was convinced to give it a try and wasn’t disappointed. Already planning 2019 and next years Cyclocross season

Best bicycle training knowledge anywheres!
by McVittees on 2018/12/17 16:15
Been following this podcast for over two years and it remains the benchmark. Interesting, engaging and factual content on training, equipment and events. The breadth of what is covered dwarfs anything else that I’ve listened to; health, family, work, nutrition, sleep, weight training, running, psychology, aerodynamics - the lot. In addition the podcast has excellent production values and the presenters are clear and articulate in communicating their content. Even if you only have a passing interest in cycling faster and only have time to listen one training podcast, then this is the one you need.
The only tool to use for structured training
by Mr A Nonny Mouse on 2018/12/16 13:39
Yes there are other apps available; if you want no nonsense structured training then TrainerRoad wins hands down.

TR Review 1yr on.
by cavedapes on 2018/11/27 11:37
66yr old UK based rider been road cycling 5 yrs, age related racing last 3 yrs. Committed to high volume base, build and specialty training plan 12m ago with best racing results ever this season. Felt strange to not be out on the road for weeks on end but good to be able to achieve effective training when weather not conducive. Main attraction of TR compared to other apps has been the well structured training plans for various disciplines based on repeat FTP tests. Found high intensity VO2 workouts hard to handle towards end of plan last time, possibly due to over optimistic FTP. Must admit to being tempted by Sufferfest app with 4 dimensional FTP for this reason. Recent introduction of calendar and automatic import of road workouts with corresponding TSS a good feature as is the online blog. Other training apps undoubtedly more ‘immersive’ although text instructions and drills from trainer Chad with a good music app help somewhat. Those 2hr workouts take some managing sometimes.

I used to use my bike with a Wahoo Kickr Snap which was seamless but have since switched to a Wattbike Atom. That works best if you switch the Atom on before you switch on the TR app. Power-based training like this with a Smart trainer especially really does make effective training as painless as possible and once you get to the harder parts of the program you have built your fitness to cope almost without realising it. Amazing. And the support is fantastic. I’ve had a few niggles with set up and the email response is rapid, helpful, and keeps going until you are sorted.
If you ride, TrainerRoad will improve you.
by ambitious_endurance on 2018/11/13 16:49
I started using TrainerRoad after I saw how it benefited a friend’s cycling. Since subscribing nearly 2 years ago I cannot speak highly enough of their programmes. It’s deliberately not as visually stimulating as some others but the workout texts carry you through the tough times and help you gain perspective on how to refine your performance on the bike. There are drills and plans for all styles of cyclists, and with the new calendar function, the platform is more manipulatable than ever before. TrainerRoad helps me become a better rider all-round and since using it, I’ve achieved way more than I ever thought I was capable of including a 3 day charity ride of 467km and my first half-iron distance triathlon. If you ride and you think there’s a chance you could be better, this is definitely the app for you.
Simple, convenient and comprehensive
by Danski81 on 2018/11/18 10:03
I’m really happy to recommend trainer road (and frequently do) and for me it remains the best bike training software with the flexibility to take your training as far as you want. You can really achieve a lot by remaining consistent and following the programs or, as some of my mates do, cherry picking workouts to prep for races/events. There’s loads of training programs to cover most disciplines - providing you’ve got a compatible trainer - -mtb, xc multiple distances -cx -road, rr,crits,TT, sportive/century events -Tri This goes hand in hand with what volume best suits your time preferences which is all able to be modified to whatever extent. I’ve been using the app for over a year and it’s been consistently good with regular improvements which demonstrates the solid programming work being done behind the scenes. The new calendar is great and gives you an easy way to track your TSS and therefore progress without overtraining. Zwift is out there and I like it and use it too but for training without distractions/traffic I really think Trainer road is the best option. The website is great too as is the support which I’ve used too and they were prompt and on the button despite being out of their time zone.
Best bicycle training knowledge anywheres!
by McVittees on 2018/12/17 16:15
Been following this podcast for over two years and it remains the benchmark. Interesting, engaging and factual content on training, equipment and events. The breadth of what is covered dwarfs anything else that I’ve listened to; health, family, work, nutrition, sleep, weight training, running, psychology, aerodynamics - the lot. In addition the podcast has excellent production values and the presenters are clear and articulate in communicating their content. Even if you only have a passing interest in cycling faster and only have time to listen one training podcast, then this is the one you need.
Experienced rider looking to improve winter training
by Wheresmecoat on 2019/02/21 21:57
So instead of spin classes and a training programme designed by a personal trainer to improve my mountain biking and endurance road riding, I decided to buy a smart trainer and use an app. After a few reads and recommendations from other experienced turbo users, I reckoned this would suit my interest i.e. Well focused, we'll planned training with emphasis on the form and ironing out bad habits. Good bits: Easy to set up Sensible training programmes (not all high intensity and max power intervals). Easy to follow on Erg and non Erg trainers Bad bits: No audible warning when text (training tips) come up on screen, so sometimes you miss bits unless you like cycling head down watching your phone. Doesn't adapt to what you're actually doing I.e. No comments if you're over our under power/cadence. Doesn't seem to adapt to your improvement, so you'll have to redo your FTP to keep it up to date.
Takes away the difficulty of season planning
by P E Te on 2018/12/21 14:27
The 3 phase training scheme ‘Base-Build-Specialise’ makes it incredibly easy to plan out a season of cycle training (or triathlon training) with different levels depending on experience/time constraints etc. The training plans are also a great basis when thinking about other types of training (e.g run/weight training) due to the clear focus on progression. Easily added about 20% to my FTP in less than a year with the structured progression and looking forward to going higher this year!
Exceptional Results
by Holdam on 2019/01/19 07:49
I’m a 54 year male in the UK who’s been cycling for 5 years. I have been using Trainer Road for over a year and cannot believe how much faster I’ve got. However, the area of cycling where I’ve seen my cycling really improve is climbing hills. Before using Trainer Road by legs would start burning within moments and I would always get dropped when on a group ride. By using the programme my body has adapted so well that I no longer get dropped on the hills and instead, I’m dropping others that I’m riding with. Top marks.
Trainer Road-Review
by Shell gel on 2020/05/05 16:50
I have been with Trainer Road for the last 3 years starting as a relative novice. It has helped me enormously to get a fully structured training programme for races both Road and Time Trialling as well as completing large participant events during this time. The advice is very useful and always when required, especially about seat and body positioning. This advice is remembered out on the road and really makes a difference. The plans allow you to train to be ready. I fully endorse the product.
Virtually brilliant coach
by MartWil on 2019/06/03 18:25
Okay having trained with a physical coach and virtually I can say that TrainerRoad is brilliant for those of us that have the will power to commit to a structured online training regime. However, if you need someone to kick you along the way, then this program may not be for you. I have seen my fitness improve and a regular increase in FTP through consistent training and mixing it up on the trails with my MTB. Very impressed with the prescribed workouts and the degree of flexibility and the ability to specialise also. Great program!
Perfect if you like structure
by jon dw on 2019/03/27 10:45
Perfect training solution and software if you like structure. The key benefit of TR is their library of plans and workouts, but increasingly their app is also getting very, very good. The calendar works great, the ability to choose variations of workouts (shorter, longer, harder, easier) is genius! Could do with better way to integrate video media but other than than that, it’s great. UPDATE: Workout variants is getting better and better - used when not feeling so good or have less time!
Great product.
by Phil the Mod on 2017/10/21 06:43
Trainer road, the best training program out there for the money. I’ve been using now for only 3 weeks but I feel stronger already. The training plans are well structured, the podcasts are informative, I’ve learned so much in the few weeks. Some people say TrainerRoad isn’t as engaging as Zwift, well work harder on the workout. I run a Stages power meter , with a smart trainer, it’s a good setup. If you wanna get fast use TrainerRoad and stick to the plans, it’s like most thing in life, you only get on what you put in.
Best choice I’ve made
by John10000008 on 2020/05/01 09:45
I’ve been using TrainerRoad for 6 months now for long distance triathlon training. I can’t rate it highly enough, following the plans I’ve seen good improvements in running and swimming and massive improvements in cycling. My easy aerobic rides are now at the same level as my threshold rides at the start! Plan builder is excellent as is the calendar! A great product, I highly recommend giving it a go if you want to improve your fitness!
Outstanding
by low-fi on 2019/01/26 12:12
I moved over from Zwift and have no regrets. The training plans are well structured, you learn about why you’re doing the intervals whilst suffering, and it’s flexible. It’s very clearly designed around the needs of cyclists, both with lots and little time to train. Zwift’s training plans, on the other hand, expect all your riding is done on the turbo trainer, which simply isn’t true for most of us. I cannot recommend Trainer Road enough.
Pain cave love
by fatty ate all the sausages on 2019/10/24 18:05
Subscribed from day one. No frills just get on the turbo for some serious pain cave action. Decent training plans which if followed will get the results. Great option if you don't fancy an expensive coach or know you have commitments that crop up. Also you can build your own sessions, great way to operate your ERG trainer. Build them from any coaching plan into your own bespoke turbo sessions. You will need a fan.
Simply the best
by Micky DD on 2019/04/04 18:52
I started using TrainerRoad about 7 years ago when I was racing this was after I had used a training program that had been special written for me, I stayed with TR because I had better results after using the specific plan.I stay with TR because I know it works, it’s well organised and the Tech department never let you down whenever you need them.
Excellent
by Lovinghorses on 2018/06/09 06:14
I am keen amateur rider without power meters but have indoor trainer. TrainerRoad gives me virtual power and hence let’s me follow the workouts. Text support on screen is very engaging and informative about improving technique. I put music on also and have also used the app whilst travelling: most gym bikes have power readings now so whilst the app wasn’t recording that I could follow the workout structure. Excellent.
Test, Base, Test, Build, Test, Specialty, Win!
by Lordwhiteadder on 2018/11/01 15:46
TrainerRoad is the tool which has changed my cycling. I don’t try to sprint up hills and drop to crawl after a minute anymore. I sit at a tempo I know I can hold and glide past everybody. I spent a weekend in the summer hanging with guys I couldn’t a couple of years ago and dropping someone who spent a couple of rides shouting at me for being rubbish.
Incredible tool to keep you on track
by Paul Hamblin on 2020/01/29 07:36
With the plan builder, calendar and amazing workouts I feel like I have a personal coach (coach chad!). Combined with the podcast and videos TR is the thing that gets me up in the morning to train. Love the regular updates and active community. If you want to get faster then stop playing games and download TR!
Was good, not anymore....
by 325porte on 2019/10/25 06:20
I’ve been using this for years, mostly on my iPad & it was great, but it no longer recognises bluetooth. It cannot connect to any devices now. It thinks bluetooth is turned off, but it isn’t.... Other apps on the same device work & can see the devices, it’s just this.....😒
Structured training plans
by Gregslegs on 2020/01/11 14:29
In terms of value for money, i think TrainerRoad has been my best investment in my cycling. Following a structured training plan and workouts, written by a good coach, is probably the best and fastest way to improve cycling performance. I am really experienced at setting training for myself - but the TrainerRoad plans are better than i could have set for myself and offer far more variety. I am more motivated to train with TrainerRoad, and i am more confident to push myself knowing the balance between training load and recovery has been thought through by a very experienced coaching team.
Do It!
by Carlgrz on 2019/10/27 15:04
TrainerRoad is not for the faint hearted but if you’re serious about being faster and are prepared to put in the work then you will see results. Cheaper than a live coach but for me it’s just as motivating. Great app, website and the podcast is also a 5 star production. Well worth the subscription.
The best training platform for getting faster on the bike!
by jakholden95 on 2020/04/01 17:45
Can’t say enough about trainer road I was on Zwift previously and yes Zwift is great, but if you want full plans custom tailored for your events/training this is the app! The whole experience is great, the app, forum and podcast make the experience. Fully committed to trainer road! Love it!
Love it!
by Jamesyboy123456789 on 2020/01/02 08:16
I have used trainee road for two seasons now and I have learnt so much and improved my fitness. I would recommend it to anyone wishing to take their cycling to the next levelthrough everything from start to finish. Time will tell how it affects my season riding, but so far so good!
The best cycling app
by lewwil on 2019/02/11 06:54
If you want to commit to a focussed, targeted training package which ultimately develops you as a cyclist/athelete and simply makes you faster, then this is the best traininga app available. Super easy to use, cracking interface on the desktop and phone, just all round fantastic... highly recommend
Great software
by iangarethreeves on 2018/11/06 17:14
Great software and integration with bike tech, it just works. Plans and new calender make it great for planning and reviewing training as well. The ability to track TSS over time is really useful, especially as the presentation in graph form is so clear. Finally- the support via email and forum is really good too.
Exceptional training/ software. Worth every penny
by tCass2 on 2018/11/05 11:19
Training plans are fantastic. Massive library of workouts. Greta features, including the brilliant calendar online for planning training over weeks, months and years. Super accessible, plans work for everyone from beginners to pros
Great App
by Omega matrix on 2018/10/29 21:01
First time I’ve decided to use a structured training program, really enjoying it. With it loaded on the calendar it makes it easy to moves rides around as life doesn’t always fit around my schedule. Love the podcasts as well, keep up the good work TrainerRoad
The best training tool
by Stueys on 2019/01/03 12:19
Been using TR for a few years now and have played around with the competitors along the way (Zwift, Sufferfest, etc). All great tools but TR is the one I always come back to when I just want to train and get fitter. Focussed, structured and backed by a great team. Highly recommended.
Great training app
by 1471975 on 2020/02/04 19:53
Loving the app use as a training aid in preparation for the Flanders sportive in April. Only one slight gripe with the app is that I would prefer it if the in exercise instructions were also audible and not just written as they can be missed at times when not focused solely on the screen. Would give 5 stars if not for this.
Great App and Podcast
by whyiseveryonecalledgoose on 2020/05/06 18:47
Thanks to the guys at Trainer Road for the great App and Podcast. The training plans are great and really help my cycling. In addition the podcast and forums provide a great resource if you want to know more about the science or to help with issues we all face as cyclists. Highly Recommended
Structure with Service
by MrA UK on 2020/04/06 18:12
The plans are perfect for triathlon and I can flex the sessions around other commitments (tri and non tri). Have had 2 occasions to ask for support and the help desk team were amazing. 6/5 stars, if there was such a rating. Definitely secured my repeat purchase and ongoing loyalty. Thanks.
Revolutionised my training
by LuffersH on 2018/12/21 18:03
The app is incredibly easy to use, coupled with the podcast...forum...calendar...It will revolutionaries your training. Hundreds of workouts to choose from and structured plans to follow depending on hat you are targeting. I aim to use this to compete in my first TT in the summer. Love it, keep up the good work.
Amazing
by Travers Bikes on 2018/12/18 06:58
Just a great concept, very easy to build my season with easy to understand trading blocks. After listening to the podcast I was convinced to give it a try and wasn’t disappointed. Already planning 2019 and next years Cyclocross season
No more procrastinating for me
by Iwanscarlets on 2020/05/19 18:00
Never realised how much time and effort I would waste thinking and planning my own training! Trainerroad does it all for you, listen to the podcast and join the forum too, learn while you train, wished I’d joined up years ago.
Trainer Road Review
by veteren runnergirl on 2019/01/20 12:27
3 months in and can’t get enough. It makes training fun and something to really look forward to. The app is great and the training calendar unbelievably good. Listen to the pod casts as well. The guys that run this business are 100% committed. I wish them continued success.
Really works well
by Bringonthetrumpets!! on 2017/10/27 08:37
Love trainerroad, if your consistent you’ll definitely become a better cyclist. In the uk it’s turbo time for me, even though I did plenty of summer sessions in the yard. The workouts really push you beyond what you think your capable of and that’s the key. It’s simply great! That’s guys at TR x
TrainerRoad is the best app to make you a fastest version of you.
by TitanicClown on 2018/11/25 12:40
TrainerRoad concentrates on delivering you the best training plans to make you a faster cyclist along with nuggets of knowledge from their free podcast. It dispenses with the fluff and makes you feel part of their community. 5 stars from me 👍.
Brilliant
by Tardi1987 on 2018/01/30 07:48
This is without doubt the best cycling app for training on the market. Stop mooching about on Zwift, get some structure in your life and go from being mediocre to being at the front of the race. If you are willing to put in the work TrainerRoad will make you fast. Period.
Simply the best training app
by Supertri on 2019/11/27 06:39
Complete Plans, adaptable workouts (great when short on time so you can still complete rather than cut a workout), and a fantastic analysis tool Once run workouts (syncing to Garmin watch) are there with run analysis it’ll be 6 stars
Getting faster
by Steve from Yorkshire on 2018/11/02 08:19
I’ve dabbled with TrainerRoad for a few years, but have really committed to training with their plans this year and it is making a big difference. Looking forward to beating my mates up the local hills this year.
Excellent
by B_wooly on 2019/01/14 12:32
Been using for 3yrs on and off but this year I have committed to completing the workouts regularly and fitness levels have increased massively along with FTP... love the new calendar updates as well as the many different alternatives provided. Excellent stuff.
Structured plans that WILL make a faster cyclist
by 5AWG on 2020/02/11 10:07
Regardless of your current ability, following aTR plan will give you structure and advice that will ensure you improve as a cyclist. They also have a great podcast every week.
Fabulous App
by RoDav1962 on 2018/12/13 22:02
You don’t have to be a serious cyclist to benefit from TrainerRoad. I am not, but fitness hugely increased after following the basic structure for 12 months. Works for everyone! Podcast is great source of information too.
Just works
by Bobshop88 on 2020/02/08 09:48
Have never had a single glitch or disrupted or failed work out in 5 years or more using TrainerRoad. That plus spending some quality time with Coach Chad is good enough for me...
3 years on... it really does work
by casio_john on 2019/12/31 12:46
Been using TR for three years now and it has transformed my fitness. Together with the podcast it is an invaluable resource. Definitely recommended.
The best!
by Therocket130 on 2018/11/06 15:03
I tried few other plans. An app is amazing just enough information you need and you can concentrate on the job in hand! And support is superb! Email them and job done!
Everything a cycling training app should be without the dross. A proper Tool.
by GeordieMullet on 2020/04/15 12:25
If you’ve the grit and steel to tough out TrainerRoad’s indoor training plans, then it’ll transform you as a rider. Watts per Dollar its the best upgrade you’ll ever make to your bike.
Structured self-loathing from the top drawer
by -ETPH- on 2019/01/26 18:19
Been using on and off for over a year and now going through a programme for the winter. Very good with a dumb trainer but a revelation with a smart one. Takes all the distractions away and allows you to focus on (mitigating) the pain. Calendar option I’m finding really helpful to plan and motivate (looking back on what I’ve already done). Only just started scratching the surface of the forums and training resources. Awesome value. Thanks!

Love the regular updates and active community. If you want to get faster then stop playing games and download TR!

I have been riding TR for about 3 years now. It is totally awesome. It’s an unbelievably efficient system for getting you cycling fit in a minimum of time. I have stuck to the very smart training programs with 3 rides totalling 3.5 hours a week. Who hasn’t got time for that. Really. Do you watch that much tv? Then do it on a smart trainer! I used to use my bike with a Wahoo Kickr Snap which was seamless but have since switched to a Wattbike Atom. That works best if you switch the Atom on before you switch on the TR app. Power-based training like this with a Smart trainer especially really does make effective training as painless as possible and once you get to the harder parts of the program you have built your fitness to cope almost without realising it. Amazing. And the support is fantastic. I’ve had a few niggles with set up and the email response is rapid, helpful, and keeps going until you are sorted.
Structured training plans
by Gregslegs on 2020/01/11 14:29
In terms of value for money, i think TrainerRoad has been my best investment in my cycling. Following a structured training plan and workouts, written by a good coach, is probably the best and fastest way to improve cycling performance. I am really experienced at setting training for myself - but the TrainerRoad plans are better than i could have set for myself and offer far more variety. I am more motivated to train with TrainerRoad, and i am more confident to push myself knowing the balance between training load and recovery has been thought through by a very experienced coaching team.
Love it!
by Jamesyboy123456789 on 2020/01/02 08:16
I have used trainee road for two seasons now and I have learnt so much and improved my fitness. I would recommend it to anyone wishing to take their cycling to the next levelthrough everything from start to finish. Time will tell how it affects my season riding, but so far so good!
Awesome Trainet

Why did I not start using TrainerRoad sooner - awesome online training suite
3 years on... it really does work
by casio_john on 2019/12/31 12:46
Been using TR for three years now and it has transformed my fitness. Together with the podcast it is an invaluable resource. Definitely recommended.

Best cycle training app by a large distance. Get it, trust it, do it and be faster. Simple
IT WORKS!

Does the magic thing, makes your FTP go in the upwards direction, which in turn ups your enjoyment of your cycling in whatever form that takes.

Simply the best training app

Complete Plans, adaptable workouts (great when short on time so you can still complete rather than cut a workout), and a fantastic analysis tool Once run workouts (syncing to Garmin watch) are there with run analysis it’ll be 6 stars
It works
by Laconic75 on 2019/11/24 07:31
The best for pretty much everything
Great training App
by RichyB21 on 2019/11/23 08:31
Once you are set up and have got your head around sitting on an indoor trainer for hours, it’s great. And it doesn’t need WiFi.
Amazing

21% increase in ftp after doing TrainerRoad plan. Can’t say fairer than that.
Do It!
by Carlgrz on 2019/10/27 15:04
TrainerRoad is not for the faint hearted but if you’re serious about being faster and are prepared to put in the work then you will see results. Cheaper than a live coach but for me it’s just as motivating. Great app, website and the podcast is also a 5 star production. Well worth the subscription.
Was good, not anymore....
by 325porte on 2019/10/25 06:20
I’ve been using this for years, mostly on my iPad & it was great, but it no longer recognises bluetooth. It cannot connect to any devices now. It thinks bluetooth is turned off, but it isn’t.... Other apps on the same device work & can see the devices, it’s just this.....😒

Pain cave love
by fatty ate all the sausages on 2019/10/24 18:05
Subscribed from day one. No frills just get on the turbo for some serious pain cave action. Decent training plans which if followed will get the results. Great option if you don't fancy an expensive coach or know you have commitments that crop up. Also you can build your own sessions, great way to operate your ERG trainer. Build them from any coaching plan into your own bespoke turbo sessions. You will need a fan.
Awesome Ironman Program

by MartWil on 2019/06/03 18:25
Okay having trained with a physical coach and virtually I can say that TrainerRoad is brilliant for those of us that have the will power to commit to a structured online training regime. However, if you need someone to kick you along the way, then this program may not be for you. I have seen my fitness improve and a regular increase in FTP through consistent training and mixing it up on the trails with my MTB. Very impressed with the prescribed workouts and the degree of flexibility and the ability to specialise also. Great program!
Awesome!!!

I started using TrainerRoad about 7 years ago when I was racing this was after I had used a training program that had been special written for me, I stayed with TR because I had better results after using the specific plan.I stay with TR because I know it works, it’s well organised and the Tech department never let you down whenever you need them.
Perfect if you like structure
by jon dw on 2019/03/27 10:45
Perfect training solution and software if you like structure. The key benefit of TR is their library of plans and workouts, but increasingly their app is also getting very, very good. The calendar works great, the ability to choose variations of workouts (shorter, longer, harder, easier) is genius! Could do with better way to integrate video media but other than than that, it’s great. UPDATE: Workout variants is getting better and better - used when not feeling so good or have less time!
100% recommendation!

Experienced rider looking to improve winter training
by Wheresmecoat on 2019/02/21 21:57
So instead of spin classes and a training programme designed by a personal trainer to improve my mountain biking and endurance road riding, I decided to buy a smart trainer and use an app. After a few reads and recommendations from other experienced turbo users, I reckoned this would suit my interest i.e. Well focused, we'll planned training with emphasis on the form and ironing out bad habits. Good bits: Easy to set up Sensible training programmes (not all high intensity and max power intervals). Easy to follow on Erg and non Erg trainers Bad bits: No audible warning when text (training tips) come up on screen, so sometimes you miss bits unless you like cycling head down watching your phone. Doesn't adapt to what you're actually doing I.e. No comments if you're over our under power/cadence. Doesn't seem to adapt to your improvement, so you'll have to redo your FTP to keep it up to date.

Structured self-loathing from the top drawer
by -ETPH- on 2019/01/26 18:19
Been using on and off for over a year and now going through a programme for the winter. Very good with a dumb trainer but a revelation with a smart one. Takes all the distractions away and allows you to focus on (mitigating) the pain. Calendar option I’m finding really helpful to plan and motivate (looking back on what I’ve already done). Only just started scratching the surface of the forums and training resources. Awesome value. Thanks!

I moved over from Zwift and have no regrets. The training plans are well structured, you learn about why you’re doing the intervals whilst suffering, and it’s flexible. It’s very clearly designed around the needs of cyclists, both with lots and little time to train. Zwift’s training plans, on the other hand, expect all your riding is done on the turbo trainer, which simply isn’t true for most of us. I cannot recommend Trainer Road enough.

Trainer Road Review
by veteren runnergirl on 2019/01/20 12:27
3 months in and can’t get enough. It makes training fun and something to really look forward to. The app is great and the training calendar unbelievably good. Listen to the pod casts as well. The guys that run this business are 100% committed. I wish them continued success.
Exceptional Results
by Holdam on 2019/01/19 07:49
I’m a 54 year male in the UK who’s been cycling for 5 years. I have been using Trainer Road for over a year and cannot believe how much faster I’ve got. However, the area of cycling where I’ve seen my cycling really improve is climbing hills. Before using Trainer Road by legs would start burning within moments and I would always get dropped when on a group ride. By using the programme my body has adapted so well that I no longer get dropped on the hills and instead, I’m dropping others that I’m riding with. Top marks.
Excellent
by B_wooly on 2019/01/14 12:32
Been using for 3yrs on and off but this year I have committed to completing the workouts regularly and fitness levels have increased massively along with FTP... love the new calendar updates as well as the many different alternatives provided. Excellent stuff.

Been using TR for a few years now and have played around with the competitors along the way (Zwift, Sufferfest, etc). All great tools but TR is the one I always come back to when I just want to train and get fitter. Focussed, structured and backed by a great team. Highly recommended.

The app is incredibly easy to use, coupled with the podcast...forum...calendar...It will revolutionaries your training. Hundreds of workouts to choose from and structured plans to follow depending on hat you are targeting. I aim to use this to compete in my first TT in the summer. Love it, keep up the good work.
Takes away the difficulty of season planning
by P E Te on 2018/12/21 14:27
The 3 phase training scheme ‘Base-Build-Specialise’ makes it incredibly easy to plan out a season of cycle training (or triathlon training) with different levels depending on experience/time constraints etc. The training plans are also a great basis when thinking about other types of training (e.g run/weight training) due to the clear focus on progression. Easily added about 20% to my FTP in less than a year with the structured progression and looking forward to going higher this year!
Amazing
by Travers Bikes on 2018/12/18 06:58

Been following this podcast for over two years and it remains the benchmark. Interesting, engaging and factual content on training, equipment and events. The breadth of what is covered dwarfs anything else that I’ve listened to; health, family, work, nutrition, sleep, weight training, running, psychology, aerodynamics - the lot. In addition the podcast has excellent production values and the presenters are clear and articulate in communicating their content. Even if you only have a passing interest in cycling faster and only have time to listen one training podcast, then this is the one you need.
The only tool to use for structured training

TR Review 1yr on.
by cavedapes on 2018/11/27 11:37
66yr old UK based rider been road cycling 5 yrs, age related racing last 3 yrs. Committed to high volume base, build and specialty training plan 12m ago with best racing results ever this season. Felt strange to not be out on the road for weeks on end but good to be able to achieve effective training when weather not conducive. Main attraction of TR compared to other apps has been the well structured training plans for various disciplines based on repeat FTP tests. Found high intensity VO2 workouts hard to handle towards end of plan last time, possibly due to over optimistic FTP. Must admit to being tempted by Sufferfest app with 4 dimensional FTP for this reason. Recent introduction of calendar and automatic import of road workouts with corresponding TSS a good feature as is the online blog. Other training apps undoubtedly more ‘immersive’ although text instructions and drills from trainer Chad with a good music app help somewhat. Those 2hr workouts take some managing sometimes.

If you ride, TrainerRoad will improve you.
by ambitious_endurance on 2018/11/13 16:49
I started using TrainerRoad after I saw how it benefited a friend’s cycling. Since subscribing nearly 2 years ago I cannot speak highly enough of their programmes. It’s deliberately not as visually stimulating as some others but the workout texts carry you through the tough times and help you gain perspective on how to refine your performance on the bike. There are drills and plans for all styles of cyclists, and with the new calendar function, the platform is more manipulatable than ever before. TrainerRoad helps me become a better rider all-round and since using it, I’ve achieved way more than I ever thought I was capable of including a 3 day charity ride of 467km and my first half-iron distance triathlon. If you ride and you think there’s a chance you could be better, this is definitely the app for you.
Simple, convenient and comprehensive
by Danski81 on 2018/11/18 10:03
I’m really happy to recommend trainer road (and frequently do) and for me it remains the best bike training software with the flexibility to take your training as far as you want. You can really achieve a lot by remaining consistent and following the programs or, as some of my mates do, cherry picking workouts to prep for races/events. There’s loads of training programs to cover most disciplines - providing you’ve got a compatible trainer - -mtb, xc multiple distances -cx -road, rr,crits,TT, sportive/century events -Tri This goes hand in hand with what volume best suits your time preferences which is all able to be modified to whatever extent. I’ve been using the app for over a year and it’s been consistently good with regular improvements which demonstrates the solid programming work being done behind the scenes. The new calendar is great and gives you an easy way to track your TSS and therefore progress without overtraining. Zwift is out there and I like it and use it too but for training without distractions/traffic I really think Trainer road is the best option. The website is great too as is the support which I’ve used too and they were prompt and on the button despite being out of their time zone.

Trainer Road-Review
by Shell gel on 2020/05/05 16:50
I have been with Trainer Road for the last 3 years starting as a relative novice. It has helped me enormously to get a fully structured training programme for races both Road and Time Trialling as well as completing large participant events during this time. The advice is very useful and always when required, especially about seat and body positioning. This advice is remembered out on the road and really makes a difference. The plans allow you to train to be ready. I fully endorse the product.

Trainer road, the best training program out there for the money. I’ve been using now for only 3 weeks but I feel stronger already. The training plans are well structured, the podcasts are informative, I’ve learned so much in the few weeks. Some people say TrainerRoad isn’t as engaging as Zwift, well work harder on the workout. I run a Stages power meter , with a smart trainer, it’s a good setup. If you wanna get fast use TrainerRoad and stick to the plans, it’s like most thing in life, you only get on what you put in.
Best choice I’ve made
by John10000008 on 2020/05/01 09:45
I’ve been using TrainerRoad for 6 months now for long distance triathlon training. I can’t rate it highly enough, following the plans I’ve seen good improvements in running and swimming and massive improvements in cycling. My easy aerobic rides are now at the same level as my threshold rides at the start! Plan builder is excellent as is the calendar! A great product, I highly recommend giving it a go if you want to improve your fitness!

Subscribed from day one. No frills just get on the turbo for some serious pain cave action. Decent training plans which if followed will get the results. Great option if you don't fancy an expensive coach or know you have commitments that crop up. Also you can build your own sessions, great way to operate your ERG trainer. Build them from any coaching plan into your own bespoke turbo sessions. You will need a fan.
Simply the best

I started using TrainerRoad about 7 years ago when I was racing this was after I had used a training program that had been special written for me, I stayed with TR because I had better results after using the specific plan.I stay with TR because I know it works, it’s well organised and the Tech department never let you down whenever you need them.
Excellent

I am keen amateur rider without power meters but have indoor trainer. TrainerRoad gives me virtual power and hence let’s me follow the workouts. Text support on screen is very engaging and informative about improving technique. I put music on also and have also used the app whilst travelling: most gym bikes have power readings now so whilst the app wasn’t recording that I could follow the workout structure. Excellent.
Test, Base, Test, Build, Test, Specialty, Win!

TrainerRoad is the tool which has changed my cycling. I don’t try to sprint up hills and drop to crawl after a minute anymore. I sit at a tempo I know I can hold and glide past everybody. I spent a weekend in the summer hanging with guys I couldn’t a couple of years ago and dropping someone who spent a couple of rides shouting at me for being rubbish.
Incredible tool to keep you on track
by Paul Hamblin on 2020/01/29 07:36
With the plan builder, calendar and amazing workouts I feel like I have a personal coach (coach chad!). Combined with the podcast and videos TR is the thing that gets me up in the morning to train. Love the regular updates and active community. If you want to get faster then stop playing games and download TR!
Was good, not anymore....
by 325porte on 2019/10/25 06:20
I’ve been using this for years, mostly on my iPad & it was great, but it no longer recognises bluetooth. It cannot connect to any devices now. It thinks bluetooth is turned off, but it isn’t.... Other apps on the same device work & can see the devices, it’s just this.....😒
Structured training plans
by Gregslegs on 2020/01/11 14:29
In terms of value for money, i think TrainerRoad has been my best investment in my cycling. Following a structured training plan and workouts, written by a good coach, is probably the best and fastest way to improve cycling performance. I am really experienced at setting training for myself - but the TrainerRoad plans are better than i could have set for myself and offer far more variety. I am more motivated to train with TrainerRoad, and i am more confident to push myself knowing the balance between training load and recovery has been thought through by a very experienced coaching team.
Do It!
by Carlgrz on 2019/10/27 15:04
TrainerRoad is not for the faint hearted but if you’re serious about being faster and are prepared to put in the work then you will see results. Cheaper than a live coach but for me it’s just as motivating. Great app, website and the podcast is also a 5 star production. Well worth the subscription.
The best training platform for getting faster on the bike!
by jakholden95 on 2020/04/01 17:45
Can’t say enough about trainer road I was on Zwift previously and yes Zwift is great, but if you want full plans custom tailored for your events/training this is the app! The whole experience is great, the app, forum and podcast make the experience. Fully committed to trainer road! Love it!
Love it!
by Jamesyboy123456789 on 2020/01/02 08:16
I have used trainee road for two seasons now and I have learnt so much and improved my fitness. I would recommend it to anyone wishing to take their cycling to the next levelthrough everything from start to finish. Time will tell how it affects my season riding, but so far so good!
The best cycling app
by lewwil on 2019/02/11 06:54
If you want to commit to a focussed, targeted training package which ultimately develops you as a cyclist/athelete and simply makes you faster, then this is the best traininga app available. Super easy to use, cracking interface on the desktop and phone, just all round fantastic... highly recommend
Great software
by iangarethreeves on 2018/11/06 17:14
Great software and integration with bike tech, it just works. Plans and new calender make it great for planning and reviewing training as well. The ability to track TSS over time is really useful, especially as the presentation in graph form is so clear. Finally- the support via email and forum is really good too.
Exceptional training/ software. Worth every penny
by tCass2 on 2018/11/05 11:19
Training plans are fantastic. Massive library of workouts. Greta features, including the brilliant calendar online for planning training over weeks, months and years. Super accessible, plans work for everyone from beginners to pros
Great App
by Omega matrix on 2018/10/29 21:01
First time I’ve decided to use a structured training program, really enjoying it. With it loaded on the calendar it makes it easy to moves rides around as life doesn’t always fit around my schedule. Love the podcasts as well, keep up the good work TrainerRoad
The best training tool
by Stueys on 2019/01/03 12:19
Been using TR for a few years now and have played around with the competitors along the way (Zwift, Sufferfest, etc). All great tools but TR is the one I always come back to when I just want to train and get fitter. Focussed, structured and backed by a great team. Highly recommended.
Great training app
by 1471975 on 2020/02/04 19:53
Loving the app use as a training aid in preparation for the Flanders sportive in April. Only one slight gripe with the app is that I would prefer it if the in exercise instructions were also audible and not just written as they can be missed at times when not focused solely on the screen. Would give 5 stars if not for this.
Great App and Podcast
by whyiseveryonecalledgoose on 2020/05/06 18:47
Thanks to the guys at Trainer Road for the great App and Podcast. The training plans are great and really help my cycling. In addition the podcast and forums provide a great resource if you want to know more about the science or to help with issues we all face as cyclists. Highly Recommended
Structure with Service
by MrA UK on 2020/04/06 18:12
The plans are perfect for triathlon and I can flex the sessions around other commitments (tri and non tri). Have had 2 occasions to ask for support and the help desk team were amazing. 6/5 stars, if there was such a rating. Definitely secured my repeat purchase and ongoing loyalty. Thanks.
Revolutionised my training
by LuffersH on 2018/12/21 18:03
The app is incredibly easy to use, coupled with the podcast...forum...calendar...It will revolutionaries your training. Hundreds of workouts to choose from and structured plans to follow depending on hat you are targeting. I aim to use this to compete in my first TT in the summer. Love it, keep up the good work.
Amazing
by Travers Bikes on 2018/12/18 06:58
Just a great concept, very easy to build my season with easy to understand trading blocks. After listening to the podcast I was convinced to give it a try and wasn’t disappointed. Already planning 2019 and next years Cyclocross season
No more procrastinating for me
by Iwanscarlets on 2020/05/19 18:00
Never realised how much time and effort I would waste thinking and planning my own training! Trainerroad does it all for you, listen to the podcast and join the forum too, learn while you train, wished I’d joined up years ago.
Trainer Road Review
by veteren runnergirl on 2019/01/20 12:27
3 months in and can’t get enough. It makes training fun and something to really look forward to. The app is great and the training calendar unbelievably good. Listen to the pod casts as well. The guys that run this business are 100% committed. I wish them continued success.
Really works well
by Bringonthetrumpets!! on 2017/10/27 08:37
Love trainerroad, if your consistent you’ll definitely become a better cyclist. In the uk it’s turbo time for me, even though I did plenty of summer sessions in the yard. The workouts really push you beyond what you think your capable of and that’s the key. It’s simply great! That’s guys at TR x
TrainerRoad is the best app to make you a fastest version of you.
by TitanicClown on 2018/11/25 12:40
TrainerRoad concentrates on delivering you the best training plans to make you a faster cyclist along with nuggets of knowledge from their free podcast. It dispenses with the fluff and makes you feel part of their community. 5 stars from me 👍.
Brilliant
by Tardi1987 on 2018/01/30 07:48
This is without doubt the best cycling app for training on the market. Stop mooching about on Zwift, get some structure in your life and go from being mediocre to being at the front of the race. If you are willing to put in the work TrainerRoad will make you fast. Period.
Simply the best training app
by Supertri on 2019/11/27 06:39
Complete Plans, adaptable workouts (great when short on time so you can still complete rather than cut a workout), and a fantastic analysis tool Once run workouts (syncing to Garmin watch) are there with run analysis it’ll be 6 stars
Getting faster
by Steve from Yorkshire on 2018/11/02 08:19
I’ve dabbled with TrainerRoad for a few years, but have really committed to training with their plans this year and it is making a big difference. Looking forward to beating my mates up the local hills this year.
Excellent
by B_wooly on 2019/01/14 12:32
Been using for 3yrs on and off but this year I have committed to completing the workouts regularly and fitness levels have increased massively along with FTP... love the new calendar updates as well as the many different alternatives provided. Excellent stuff.
Structured plans that WILL make a faster cyclist
by 5AWG on 2020/02/11 10:07
Regardless of your current ability, following aTR plan will give you structure and advice that will ensure you improve as a cyclist. They also have a great podcast every week.
Fabulous App
by RoDav1962 on 2018/12/13 22:02
You don’t have to be a serious cyclist to benefit from TrainerRoad. I am not, but fitness hugely increased after following the basic structure for 12 months. Works for everyone! Podcast is great source of information too.
Just works
by Bobshop88 on 2020/02/08 09:48
Have never had a single glitch or disrupted or failed work out in 5 years or more using TrainerRoad. That plus spending some quality time with Coach Chad is good enough for me...
3 years on... it really does work
by casio_john on 2019/12/31 12:46
Been using TR for three years now and it has transformed my fitness. Together with the podcast it is an invaluable resource. Definitely recommended.
The best!
by Therocket130 on 2018/11/06 15:03
I tried few other plans. An app is amazing just enough information you need and you can concentrate on the job in hand! And support is superb! Email them and job done!
Everything a cycling training app should be without the dross. A proper Tool.
by GeordieMullet on 2020/04/15 12:25
If you’ve the grit and steel to tough out TrainerRoad’s indoor training plans, then it’ll transform you as a rider. Watts per Dollar its the best upgrade you’ll ever make to your bike.
Structured self-loathing from the top drawer
by -ETPH- on 2019/01/26 18:19
Been using on and off for over a year and now going through a programme for the winter. Very good with a dumb trainer but a revelation with a smart one. Takes all the distractions away and allows you to focus on (mitigating) the pain. Calendar option I’m finding really helpful to plan and motivate (looking back on what I’ve already done). Only just started scratching the surface of the forums and training resources. Awesome value. Thanks!
