Ratings and Reviews
As good as it gets for app based cycling coaching
The app is excellent but the company is exceptional. Very few people compete in team sports without a coach, so why should cycling be any different?
When you sign up for Trainerroad, what you’re getting is some of the best coaching available via Chad Timmerman’s extremely effective workout plans, thoroughly tested, analyzed, and discussed by other members of the staff, including their CEO and multiple Cat 1 and pro riders. More experienced riders can infinitely tweak the plans to their liking, so you’re not stuck with what’s there.
Then there’s the free TR podcast that goes hand in hand with the app. Learn about all things bike and training related from Chad, Nate, and Jonathan, as well as Pro/1/2 and industry guests. TrainerRoad would not be the same without the podcast or these people.
Of all the indoor trainer apps out there, this is the one to get. No gimmicks, seamless integration with smart trainers, and plans backed by experienced riders. YMMV, but it works for them and it’s been working for me: huge FTP gains that were hard on the legs, but easy on the mind because Chad lays it all out for me. Just follow the plan.
And let’s be real here. Cycling is expensive. Even if you’re already using another app, you can afford 10 bucks a month to try this one for awhile.
I started using TR because I like to ride mtb and the hill climbs were killing me. Within weeks my form and peddling effectively improved tremendously. Listening to their “Ask A Cycling Coach” podcast is also an indispensable resource for tips and techniques but the biggest gain I get from them is the nutritional information. I startedTR in April at 245lbs. It’s October and I’m at 206lbs. It’s all thanks the the information gained listening to the podcast and using TR (although not as consistently as I want to, life has a habit of messing up my plans)
That said, it’s easy to stick with it because you can leave your setup wherever you wish and hop on it for an hour or if you are crunched for time you can shorten the workout.
Just keeps getting better!!
I have been using TrainerRoad week in week out for about 18 months now working through the half and full Ironman programs. I enjoy the no thrills approach - no fancy graphics or enforced soundtracks and videos. Just a slick interface that tells you what you need to know. The structure of the training is great and with the inclusion of wise words from Coach Chad I feel that I’ve become a better and more efficient cyclist as well as a stronger one. TrainerRoad continue to make improvements to the app and it just keeps getting better and better. I love the TrainerRoad podcast too - very insightful and entertaining. Keep up the great work TrainerRoad
