We are a young company that hopes to revolutionize the way endurance athletes train by pro- viding digital, individualized, and adaptive coaching via our application.
Most triathletes have many commitments in their lives besides training for the sports they enjoy. Juggling work, life, and family responsibilities can make fitting in training to reach individual fitness goals stressful, particularly when a sport such as a triathlon requires many hours of dedication across three different disciplines (swimming, biking, and running).
The majority of athletes use static training plans provided by books, magazines, or coaches. However, as life demands and our day-to-day commitments change continuously, it is hard to follow these plans that don’t readily adapt to our personal needs. This often leaves athletes feeling stressed, not knowing how to modify their training plans to optimize the likelihood of achieving individual goals. Furthermore, in an age where wearable technology allows the objective quantification of our activity levels, we’re left wondering if these are being utilized to the fullest extent.
Our prototype aims to plan all of the training sessions in correlation to the changing schedules and physiological makeup of each athlete. Furthermore, the application optimally navigates the athletes to reach their individualized competition goals based on personal user data. These modifications are provided by giving the best possible training plans on a smartphone whenever and wherever an athlete feels like training.
