Zwift has announced the launched of a new Group Workouts tool that allows users to train with others in a group, regardless of their ability or power output.
Group Workouts now allows users to register for a group ride using Zwift’s Mobile Link app, which is a similar setup to the current race or group ride events already available on the company’s platform.
The difference now is that users can train to the same performance level based on their FTP (functional threshold power), which means no matter what the power output of others the group might be, members are kept together.
“Group Workouts really opens up Zwift to the masses. Now all ages and ability levels can train together for the first time, whether you’re a WorldTour Pro or a recreational cyclist. This is about delivering quality and convenient social training experiences to people at home”, says Erin Min, Zwift CEO and co-founder.
“We’re taking the motivation of the spinning experience and fusing it with structured training content created by world class coaches.”
Zwift currently offers numerous structured sessions that users can join using the new Group Workouts feature, by simply searching for them in the “events” section, where up to 15 scheduled sessions can be found every day.
USA Cycling’s Endurance Performance Director Greg Henderson will be leading a series of Group Workouts later this month, and there will also be a live stream from Team Dimension Data’s training camp in South Africa for a whole week, where the team will be leading the sessions.
