The combination of the two has completely changed the indoor training experience, it’s now a lot easier to spend a bunch on time on the turbo, and actually enjoy yourself! Replicate a route or download a new one - That being said, you don’t need an additional app. Most smart trainers will have their own platform that will also unlock additional features. In the case of this Wahoo Kickr, the Wahoo fitness companion app allows you to follow and even create your own training sessions. Fitness Test - To really get the most out of the training aspect of your smart trainer, you should definitely take advantage of the fact that it will have an accurate, built in power meter. Firstly, you should find out how fit you really are with a fitness test. Then, you can use that data to plan and then execute your training. That old phrase train smarter, not harder, is definitely true here. Do you have a smart trainer?
