• Trainshift

    Johannes from Germany got so annoyed with online training platforms available that he just created his own.

    Trainshift has two main advantages, from my perspective. The basic version offers advanced data analysis of your workouts for free. Whilst the Trainshift Pro version gives you direct and detailed training advice - customized training plans according to your needs - which diminishes the need for a personal cycling coach.

    I've loaded up Trainshift with 200 days of my data from Strava and will be testing the workout generation feature to see what it says.


    A rider might only be in into the sport for self-improvement. Such a rider, focused solely on technique, mastery and process may become highly proficient, and even elite. Similarly, a rider might only ride for the glory. This ego/performance orientation suggests that process has to be endured, but it’s really the identity of being an elite cyclist that drives the rider. I suspect that some of the best riders, however, combine the positives of both orientations. They are obsessive about process and practice, and love to rip everyone’s legs off where it counts in order to enjoy the rewards.
