The Sufferfest Mental Toughness program could be of specific use to riders who are not accustomed to being indoors for an extended period. Crafted by Wahoo’s experienced Sport Science team, each of the new four-week programs will start with a mental preparation exercise.

“The current pandemic has disrupted every aspect of our daily lives,” said David McQuillen, head of the Wahoo Fitness Sufferfest division. “While all of us at Wahoo Fitness know that there are far more important things than that next workout, we also know that there is comfort, solace, and meaning to be found in exercise.”

Although indoor training has traditionally been an on-demand activity centred on convenience, these new Wahoo four-week Sufferfest programs are structured, reflecting the reality of training in a lockdown period. Those riders keen on improving a specific aspect of their training (strength, endurance or power), the appropriate four-week Wahoo Sufferfest program could enable them to smash through previous plateaus.

To allow the widest possible dispersion of training relief, Sufferfest is offering new users a free month subscription, courtesy of the ALLINSUFPLAN promotional code.

For riders who are keen to balance the weaknesses in their power, endurance or exercise physiology, now is the time to commit for a month of corrective training.
