Four-Dimensional Power™:
Personalized. Precise. Only From The Sufferfest

4DP™ will change the way you train. Our comprehensive fitness test goes beyond FTP, using four distinct metrics to reveal who you are as a cyclist and personalize every target in your workouts to match your unique profile. No other training app can do that.

  • Find Your Hidden Power

    4DP™ measures your neuromuscular power (NM), Anaerobic Capacity (AC), Maximal Aerobic (MAP) and Functional Threshold Power (FTP) to determine what you’re capable of across a range of efforts. The app will then assign you a rider type—Sprinter, Attacker, Pursuiter, Time Triallist, Climber, or Rouleur—while specific workout recommendations will allow you to build strengths and address weaknesses.

  • Your Targets, Your Workouts

    Training apps that just use FTP to set power targets have to guess what you can do. But 4DP™ knows exactly what you’re capable of and uses knowledge to tailor every target in every workout so you get the exact right training stimulus. No more wasting time on workouts that don’t work.

  • Race Proven

    4DP™ uses the same testing and workout personalization protocol developed by world-class coach Neal Henderson of APEX Coaching to train his elite athletes. Grounded in science, verified by rigorous lab testing, and proven by victories in the most prestigious events in the world such as the Tour de France, World Championships and the Olympics. 4DP™ puts race-winning, individually-optimized training in your hands.

Yoga for Cyclists

Getting faster on the bike means getting stronger off it. Our Yoga for Cyclists videos, created with Abi Carver at Yoga15.com, will help you build core strength and flexibility, improve your posture, reduce the chance of injury, and help you stay calm and focused under pressure. Come for the Suffering, Namaste for the yoga.


MIND

Strengthen Your Mental Game

Courage and fear. Confidence and doubt. Winning and losing. The difference, more often than not, is a state of mind. Developed with sports psychologists and elite coaches, our new Mental Training Programme brings you practical, no-nonsense tools to build your mental toughness.
