What’s included in the subscription plans?

The subscription plans are made up of 3 sessions per week and come complete with session notes, set up instructions, speed targets and rest periods. The subscription plans work in six-week phases, for example, a six-week phase that builds to a 500m test and then transitions into a six-week maintenance phase and so on. Each phase is structured with clear focuses and the ability to log scores for easy session recall. The subscription plans are also third party compatible which means you can connect your Apple Watch, Fitbit and MyFitnessPal to your profile to collect all your daily data into one place and track your overall training and lifestyle in one place.

How often should I train?

Training volume should be based on personal preference and you should monitor how your body is reacting to that training load. We write three sessions per week as for us this seems to be a good balance for anyone who is new to the sport or anyone looking to be more competitive. Three sessions a week is enough to space out sessions and achieve proper recovery. If you want more, then, you have space in your week to add as you please.

What is the drag factor?

The drag factor is usually confused with the damper setting on the side of the fan. In fact, the "damper" setting (The number on the fan) can offer a different resistance level depending on the environment of the machine, its age, model, altitude etc. The drag factor is the only way that you are guaranteed to achieve the same resistance level each time.
