Cycling Weekly Verdict

For $3.99 TrainerDay really is a brilliant app for cyclists new to the sport to get started, to help guide them with their training, to refine their sessions and increase the structure of their training plan to help them hit their goals. For more serious riders or racers there are elements of the app such as being able to create your own sessions that will appeal to them, however there are free alternatives on the market that can do this just as well.

With the cost of living leading to people searching for savings more than ever before, could this be a cost effective alternative to having your own personalised coach?

The concept is simple, TrainerDay uses a series of workouts created by Andrea Morelli, head coach for Mapei cycling team as well as previously the coach of Cadel Evans when he won the Tour De France in 2011. The belief is that “Training should be fun and you should be training smarter not harder” and TrainerDay helps you to tailor this training through the use of its smartphone training app.
