Kinetic Fit Power-Training App Offers TrainingPeaks App Integration

Kinetic, the leading manufacturer of premium cycling trainers, announced significant updates to the Kinetic Fit training app for iOS and Android allowing Smart Subscribers to import and ride TrainingPeaks interval workouts and opening up Fit-app compatibility to virtually all smart trainer brands.

With Kinetic’s Fit app synced to a TrainingPeaks account, riders can import a TrainingPeaks workout, ride and record it with the Fit app and export it back to their TrainingPeaks account. Round-tripping workouts between apps allows riders to get the best from each platform. While Kinetic Fit features training plans and built-in workouts, the app’s biggest strength is workout execution—riding guided, FTP-based workouts with data recording. The TrainingPeaks platform excels as an environment for planning, working with coaches, building workouts and training plans and data analysis.

“Using the Fit app and a smart trainer to ride TrainingPeaks workouts eliminates the need to print out or write down your workout details like interval numbers, lengths and associated power targets,” said David Simpson, Kinetic Marketing Manager. “The two apps save you time and work together like a coach looking over your shoulder, keeping you on target, motivated and recording your progress.”

Workouts designed in the TrainingPeaks workout creator can be ridden in ERG mode on smart trainers with the Fit app and exported back to TrainingPeaks for analysis. Exporting workout data back to your TrainingPeaks account brings everything full circle for sharing, review and analysis. “At TrainingPeaks we’re always looking for ways to help athletes train for events in the most efficient way possible,” said Ben Pryhoda, Sr. Director of Product, Device and API Integrations at TrainingPeaks. “With the Kinetic Fit app integration, cyclists can stay honest, even during their hardest intervals, and hit their training targets every time.”

Recent updates to the Kinetic Fit app for iOS also include support for Wahoo, CycleOps, Tacx, and Elite trainers via Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE). Support for Kinetic Fit for Android is slated for later in January. Virtually all smart trainers will work with the simple but powerful training app that includes structured workouts, training plans, and video integration.
