4. Adapt the training session to your athletes’ needs

Clicking on one of the predefined training sessions allows you to edit the workout sessions as follows:

  1. Rename the workout by clicking on the Name field

  2. Select the preferred way for its training load (duration or distance),

  3. Choose the intensity method you prefer for the cardio workouts: 

 Running and cycling (Heart Rate, Pace/power or RPE zones)
Swimming (Tpace, RPE)

  1. Finally, to start building the workout just click on the “Add Step” button(note here that you can use as many steps as you need).
    If you want to build repeatable steps (e.g. high intensity interval training) click on the “

    Then press “Save”.

As you can see on the image below, you can prescribe steps for Warm-up, Work, Cool down, Rest Passive or Rest Active
