Three Ways to Train

You can train with a power meter, smart trainer or use TrainerRoad's own VirtualPower® feature — all you need is a speed sensor and supported trainer.

Speed Sensor + Trainer

Connect your speed sensor and TrainerRoad will use your trainer's power curve to turn your speed into watts.

Power Meter + Trainer

Connect your power meter via ANT+ or Bluetooth Smart for structured interval-workouts with power-based targets.

Smart Trainer

Connect your smart trainer via ANT+ or Bluetooth Smart and let TrainerRoad control the resistance of your trainer.

“My perception of indoor training has changed dramatically since I started using TrainerRoad. I can ride my bike inside and it doesn't feel like I'm making a sacrifice.”

Fitness Assessment and Growth

Your first ride will be a fitness assessment designed to test your Functional Threshold Power (FTP). Your FTP establishes a training baseline that TrainerRoad uses to scale all future workouts to your fitness level. Work hard and watch your fitness grow!

Choose a discipline-specific training plan that fits your schedule to prepare for your upcoming event. As your training progresses, you’ll focus on different aspects of your fitness while testing regularly to benchmark your improvement. Learn how our training process makes you a faster cyclist.
