A very inspirational podcast

It’s been great to hear the stories of success from many people who have overcome difficult challenges. It serves as good inspiration to me to keep working hard.

Contribution and synergy

The training app is awesome. The podcast is informative, factual, entertaining, educational. Both together inform each other. Such a brilliant combination. Whether you’re training for something or nothing, the crew at TR provide such a tremendous amount of value.

The podcast as a stand-alone is great too and touches a manifold of topics and subjects w an eye on all things training, mental, psychological, physical, technique, etc.

Can’t recommend enough. Thanks, guys.

Never so enjoyed being so informed

I’m a relatively new cyclist: up until 6 weeks ago my “regular” routine was one day a week at the YMCA. Quarantine pushed me to get into training and Trainer Road has made this an amazing experience.

The two hardest parts of getting into cycling has been the cost and the culture. This podcast, and the training app, have made both accessible to even a hobbyist with some fitness and speed gain goals.

Just finished a 52 mile ride this weekend with some veteran road warriors and didn’t get dropped. 😀Looking forward for more info, clarity, and motivation. Thank you for the great podcast and product!
