September 28

There are several new updates for our iOS mobile app. We have added five new languages, more default charts, new notifications, a notifications center, and an improved workflow for adding workouts.  

  • We have translated the app into German, Japanese, Portugese, Russian, and Spanish. 
  • A new work flow for adding workouts using Floating Action Buttons.
  • New push and in app notifications and a notification center.

August 31st

The update for this week will allow coaches to create and save custom names to set up their athletes ATP periodization in any way they choose. Custom names can be created by clicking on the gear icon in the Period column or navigating to the Layout section of the Coach Account Settings.

  • Custom names will be saved for future ATP creation.
  • If you are using the automatic ATP, custom period names will replace the default period names.
  • These can be updated at any time.
  • This feature is currently for coaches only.


August 10, 2016

We have several new features coming out this week. To make it easier for athletes and coaches to view data from an event, particularly for triathletes, all data can now be added to an event. This allows for multiple files, like from a swim, bike, and run, to be nested in the event and easily viewed. For coaches and Premium Athletes, workouts can now be ordered on the day by simply clicking and dragging. Planning by Training Stress Score is now easier as well with new auto calculations. Finally, users of the Wahoo Element or Garmin Edge devices that support live segment will see segments appear automatically as a lap in the file.

This week we have several new updates to our mobile iOS app. Updates include a redesigned workout view using tabs, sharing a snapshot of your workout, adding workout attachments, and more. 

May 25, 2016

When coaches and athletes are viewing different metrics in their respective accounts, it can cause confusion. This week’s release allows coaches to set up the Workout QuickView and Metrics QuickView for each athlete. Now, a coach can set exactly what they want their athletes to see so they can communicate more effectively.

May 18, 2016

We released two features this week. The first is the new Coach Search, which gives athletes a quick and effective way to find a coach. With advanced searching and filtering, keywords, and other features, finding a coach has never been easier. The second allows coaches to put an event on a training plan. Since many plans are written to help athletes train for a specific race or event, coaches can now add it to the plan as an Event.

March 9, 2016

For this week, we are releasing our newly refreshed Post Workout Notifications (PWNs) and Workout Tags. Post Workout Notifications help coaches and athletes communicate about a workout in an effective and organized manner. While these notifications have been in place for some time, we’ve refreshed them, giving them a cleaner look and adding a direct link to the workout for easier analysis.

Post Workout Notifications


Visually, we updated the PWN to be consistent across our web and mobile platforms, making them easily recognizable no matter how you access your account. In every PWN, you will see the following metrics:

In addition, within the Post-Activity comments you will be able to see the date the comment was made and who wrote it.

New Goal Setting Features

These new features are focused on the important step of setting goals. When you sign up for an event, you should also set a series of goals, both process and outcome, that will help you stay on track. Using our new goal setting features will allow you to easily add these goals to your calendar, customize your goals, and check them off after you complete them. These features are available to both Basic and Premium athletes and all coaches.

Event Goal Setting

When you add an event, you can now add specific goals as well. This step helps you clearly define your goals, an important aspect of setting goals that are challenging but attainable.
