Feature request: Group workouts with varied workouts

First off, I’m loving the Group Workouts feature. I have a teammate who is on a very similar plan to me, although about a week or two different. However, it’s close enough that we can take on each other’s workouts from time to time, and as always, a similar workout completed perfectly is better than the perfect workout failed. I get through much tougher workouts in a group than I do by myself.

However, the rest of the team is on very different plans, and there is no way they could join in our workouts, or us do theirs.

I’d love a way for us to have a group workout, with the voice and video sharing, but where we can each start our own workouts at the same time. So, I could be doing Brasstown, whilst someone else could do Pettit or Taylor.

I’d envisage being able to see the blue bars of the workout under each person’s screen, so that you can see (broadly) what they are doing. Being able to laugh at someone who’s got their next set of repeats coming up, and then cheer them on from the comfort of a zone 2 ride when they make it through.

I’m a massive fan, and I’m so glad you got this feature out, and I know it’s a work in progress. I can see this being an absolutely core part of my training.

Obviously, it would also be good to be able to see workout text during group workouts - at the moment, I keep getting distracted by the ‘ding’ of new workout text, but then it’s not there!

:thinking:

Zoom? Google hangouts? Skype?

All good options, but they don’t share ride data (like HR, ride structure, watts, etc) like the Group Workouts do - at least not without some more complex screen-streaming which is beyond me.

Nate has mentioned that mixed workouts is in the list for features they plan to implement.

That will be BEAST! I can’t wait to get the whole team training together… apart!
