Personalised cycling workouts make your indoor and outdoor cycling training even more effective. Unlock your potential with the ability to create your own workouts, export them to your favourite cycling apps, and smash your goals.
A customised workout means you can focus your training on the areas that matter the most to you. Combining your favourite exercises with your indoor bike trainercan help you see the benefits of indoor cycling, reach your goals, and perform better out on the road.
The benefits of creating your own workout include:
They’re tailored to your goals - You’re able to train in your own unique way with a customised workout, because it’s personal to which segments of each indoor cycling workoutyou prefer.
You can stick to your own fitness level - It’s important that you aren’t tempted to push yourself too hard. This can lead to the signs of overtraining, risk of injury and could mean you aren’t race-ready when your sportive comes around. Creating your own personalised workout means you can adjust the level to suit your ability.
You’re in control of your training - Cycling is a very personal sport, though you may enjoy riding in groups, you’re the one making the pedal revolutions. Staying in control of your training is important to reaching your goals, whether you’re training for sportivesor wanting to improve your fitness.

As a cyclist, you know how important it is to have a strong aerobic base and powerful legs. You spend hours sweating it out in the saddle and sculpting quads and calves that a Greek god would envy. But do you find that after a while your lower back starts to ache, your shoulders become tense, and your position starts to suffer? That’s where a strong core comes into play. We delve into why a strong core helps with cycling and give you the best core exercises for cyclists.
Whether you’re a casual rider with a favourite coffee shop stop, a Wattbike warrior or a pro riding hundreds of kilometres a week, there is no debate that stretching helps with recovery and injury prevention after cycling.
