Australian startup Today’s Plan is making structured, custom-tailored, training accessible to cyclists via its suite of online training tools. By working with event promoters, the company adds specific events to their database that a rider can then choose as their target event. The target event information, combined with specific input from the rider about their experience, availability for training, goals and equipment allows the Today’s Plan algorithm to design a customized training plan, unique to every rider’s personal goals.
Accessed via the web and mobile apps, Today’s Plan software integrates with nearly every device cyclists use. This includes power meters, heart rate monitors, and indoor trainers from Garmin, Wahoo Fitness, CycleOps, SRM and others. Today’s Plan allows riders to understand baseline performance and improvement by producing customizable data sets.
“Our vision for Today’s Plan has always been to offer intelligent training systems for riders of all levels to produce highly specific and custom-tailored training plans,” said Ben Bowley, managing director of Today’s Plan. “We not only produce custom training plans, but we can structure them around specific events, and I think any event organizer recognizes that having cyclists show up who are well trained produces a better event for all. We’re looking forward to building a strong database of North American events over the next few months.”
Based in the cycling hotbed of Canberra, Australia, the company began offering its training system for cyclists in late 2014 and have continued to expand their coaching and analytical tools. Today’s Plan has become an useful tool to many coaches and cyclists who use it on a daily basis.
The Today’s Plan platform is the result of software development by its founders, combined with input from sports scientists, coaches, riders and racers. Today’s Plan provides the same level of training programming for recreational and club-level cyclists as for professional teams. Today’s Plan offers tailored training system to suit the goals, type of riding, and lifestyle of any cyclist.
