ACCOMPLISH YOUR CYCLING GOALS –POWERHOUSE® BIKE APP GUIDES YOU STEP-BY-STEP
Whether you are an advanced cyclist or just a beginner, PowerHouse Bike has a plan to improve significantly your cycling performance and fitness. Choose from six, goal-based plans: “iSlim®,” “Express Fitness,”, “CycleMax”, “Weekend Warrior”, “Zero to 20” (miles), and “Brazilian Butt”.
Each plan includes five to seven weeks of 45-90 minute workouts. Workouts are customized to the plan’s objective and your personal fitness level. For example, a “couch potato” would start a plan at a low but challenging level of effort, yet an advanced cyclist, starting the same plan, would ride at a much higher, but similarly challenging, level of effort.
During each workout ride, you pedal for measured times (intervals), at targeted levels of effort (power and cadence). How hard will you need to pedal? Enough to keep the yellow PowerHouse pointer positioned between the interval brackets!
For each of the six plans, the PowerHouse Bike app includes a free Fitness Test (FTP test) and free first workout. Most plans include 50-60 workouts; after the first workout, to continue with your selected plan you’ll make a one-time $9.99 in-app purchase.
HOW POWERHOUSE BIKE WORKS
PowerHouse Bike combines the latest advancements in bicycling power measurement, power coaching, and artificial intelligence technologies, allowing cyclists of all levels to get the most out of their cycling fitness/training objectives, and to have fun along the way!

INCREDIBLY EASY AND FUN
PowerHouse Bike uses proven power-zone interval training techniques. You ride your bike just hard enough to keep the PowerHouse yellow pointer between the brackets. The brackets move at the end of each interval, creating both exercise and recovery periods during your workout.
PowerHouse Bike workouts are challenging, but because they are customized to your fitness level, you can do it!

Ratings and Reviews
Clearly not compatible with iPhone 6S. Managed to open it but was unable to change the rider profile. Once connected to the powerpod, it crashes as soon as the app is opened
Didn’t even get me through the basic setup stage!
