FasCat Optimize Makes Wearable Data Actionable for Athletes
New Training Technology Helps Athletes Keep Their Training and Recovery on Track

optimize

FasCat, the leader in sports science innovation and connected coaching, is proud to unveil Optimize, a next-generation training and data analytics platform. Optimize balances an athlete’s training and recovery — both now measurable through traditional power meters and modern wearables — to deliver actionable daily insights.

Unlimited, science-based training plans that scale to the athlete’s schedule are included in a subscription to Optimize, available now for iOS and Android devices.

With modern wearables like Whoop, Oura, Apple Watch and Garmin products providing sleep and HRV data, many athletes are learning about their key markers of recovery. However, most athletes don’t know how to use that data to adjust their training.

Other programs can help athletes parse wearable data, but Optimize is the only system that combines sleep and HRV data with physiological stress as measured by power meters and heart rate monitors. Optimize integrates both sets of data into FasCat’s proven coaching system to help athletes improve their fitness and achieve their goals in a fun and flexible manner.

“For the past 20 years we have been using power and heart rate data as objective measurements, and relying on an athlete’s self-assessment of their recovery for the other half of the equation,” said FasCat founder, sports scientist, and prominent coach Frank Overton. “Recently, wearable technology has unlocked new ways to measure recovery, but the software and metrics created were not developed for endurance athletes. With Optimize, we can now integrate both halves of the physiological equation with real-time data so athletes can better manage their training and recovery to achieve greatly improved athletic performance.”

A subscription to Optimize, which costs $34.99 per month, or $299.99 for a year, includes unlimited access to all of FasCat’s training plans, workouts, meal plans, recipes and access to expert FasCat coaches who can answer endurance athletes’ training questions.

A key feature of Optimize is The Needle, an easily understandable data visualization of FasCat’s proprietary training and recovery algorithm that shows how rested or stressed an athlete is, based on their training and wearable data. The Needle gives athletes an Optimization Score, which tells them if they need to train more, rest more, or if they are fully Optimized and training just right.

Train Like the Pros: Jayco Alulu Close Out the Zwift Pro Training Camp
Discover what it takes to train like the best with Zwift’s virtual training camp with WorldTour teams.

zwift

Zwift, the global online fitness platform, has opened registration for the Zwift Pro Training Camp which will run from 21st November – 15th January. The camp will be broken into four segments, allowing all Zwifters to benefit from the training expertise of four of the best men’s and women’s World Tour teams: Ineos-Grenadiers, Jumbo-Visma, Movistar Team and Jayco Alulu. Each block will feature four workouts inspired by riders from the team. In addition to the rider-inspired workouts, each team has supplied two additional workouts designed to develop specific rider strengths. This is your time to train like a pro!

Closing out the camp and into the new year feeling stronger and fitter than ever before will be Jayco Alulu. On demand workouts will be available from 3rd January and in-game events will run until 15th January. Rider workouts take inspiration from Michael Matthews, Teniel Campbell, Lawson Craddock and Jess Allen. Lawson Craddock earned global respect when he completed the 2018 Tour de France after breaking his shoulder in a crash on stage one. Fortunately his workout is a little more accessible and is focused on developing your cycling-specific strength on the bike.
