Training Videos

Make your indoor training count with our addition of premium training videos brought to you by CTS.

This feature is available to Premium members and allows you to access a growing library of training videos that help you improve with a variety of tailored workouts and motivational content.

You can watch these videos as often and whenever you like as long as you have a data connection. We recommend connecting to wifi to avoid possible cellular data costs. When completing a workout video, you can easily create a manual entry that represents your activity on Strava.

If you watch at least 20% before leaving the training video, you will be prompted to save your ride as a Manual Activity. Saving the manual activity will automatically reset your viewing position to the start of the video.
