Kinetic Launches New Fit App

It’s not too late to conquer the doldrums of winter, at least that’s what Kinetic thinks with their new Fit App

The new cycling app is designed to not only measure and record metrics such as speed, power, cadence, heart rate, and calories via one’s  smartphone or tablet using Bluetooth, but it can also provide fitness challenges, that include hundreds of workouts, guided training plans, scheduling and more.

Here are some of the key features:

  • New power-training plans (coming soon!) with 100s of accompanying workouts — developed especially for Kinetic by professional coach and athlete Drew Edsall
  • Built-in Fitness Test — Helps you set training zones and track improvement
  • Second screen viewing with in-app video player — using Apple TV or a direct HDMI, riders can watch videos on a second monitor while training
  • Synchronizable The Sufferfest workouts — select the workout, select the video from your device and activate second-screen viewing and you can train along with the video with customized
  • power and cadence targets and timer.
  • Custom Power and Heart Rate Zones — Configure them if you know them, otherwise the built-in fitness test can do it after the workout
  • Data Sharing — Social media, Training Peaks, Strava, and others
  • Customizable App Displays — Configure displays to show whatever you like see when you train, from 1 to 9 metrics per screen

How does it work?

According to Kinetic, all a cyclist needs to do is simply mount his or her bike on either the NEW Rock and Roll | Smart or NEW Road Machine | Smart trainer, download the free Kinetic Fit App (which is both iOS and Android compatible), and get started. And, from there, satisfied users can upgrade to Kinetic’s premium subscription and unlock an even greater host of features. 

What makes Kinetic’s trainers Smart?

Kinetic says, Smart was the best moniker to hang on its new trainers, by virtue of their inRide and Fit App’s hardware and software platforms, which are designed to work together, to not only keep cyclists informed of their workout data, but also to guide them toward what they should be targeting as well.

This is accomplished by the inRide and Fit Apps’ ability to transmit workout metrics wirelessly to a smart device, wherein workout data such as speed and cadence are simultaneously displayed, along with guided workouts that provide power and cadence targets as well.

Kinetic says, this aids cyclists with not only performing workouts based on their current fitness levels, but also encourages them to target optimal cadence and power thresholds as well.
