These zones are based on the groundbreaking work of Dr Andy Coggan and Hunter Allen, who drew on principles of exercise physiology and two decades’ experience of power-based training in laboratory and field settings to devise seven power training zones, which have been adopted by the Union Cycliste Internationale.
Depending on the type of class you choose, CicloZone workouts focus primarily on the first five of these zones, mixing intervals of lower level exertion (or recovery) with shorter, high-energy intervals to activate different physiological systems and deliver real performance gains.
By taking a quick Functional Threshold Power (FTP) test, or entering your known FTP figure when you set up your personal profile, CicloZone can calculate the power, exertion or RPM data you need to train effectively in each zone, personalising your workout and ensuring you’re cycling at the right level for you, every time.
Of course, you don’t need to worry about any of this detail if you don’t want to. Simply create your CicloZone profile, choose your class and follow your trainer’s guidance and the colour-coded in-app graphics. Leave the rest to us!
