The Sufferfest App for Windows - Beta Release



The Minions have been Chamois Dancing all night to celebrate the release of our Sufferfest Training Centre Windows Beta App. It does have our three newest videos (Thin Air, The Omnium and Igniter), but it doesn't yet have downloadloadable videos. That will come on the 4th of November with our full release. It's still a pretty awesome and effective bundle of Suffering, though. Want to sign up?

Here is what IS in the Beta.

    • Stream our entire library: You'll have fully integrated, streaming access to every one of our 37 (!) videos, including our newest ones and app-only exclusives like our Mash-Ups, Open rides and updated versions of older videos as we release them!
    • Connect your devices by ANT+: Hook up power meters, power pedals, cadence and speed sensor and heart rate monitors. You will need an ANT+ stick for your computer. Here is more about that.
    • Smart trainer control: With the correct ANT+ USB stick, the app will pick up your smart trainer data and display it on screen and control your smart trainer.
    • Take a fitness test: Run Rubber Glove and the app will set your FTP (Functional Threshold Power) and LTHR (Lactate Threshold Heart Rate) targets for all your other workouts going forward.
    • Virtual power: Don't have a smart trainer or power meter but still want to train like the pros? Connect your speed sensor train with our Virtual power. Here are our compatible trainers.
    • Store and analyse all your workouts: See all your workout data in your Passport.
    • Sharing to other platforms: Share to Strava and TrainingPeaks. You can also share the .tcx file by email and upload that to other platforms. After Nov 4th, you'll be able to share workouts in your passport.

      Ready to Suffer? Here is what you need to do to start your 7 day free trial:

      1. Create an App account here. If you choose to continue after your 7 day free trial, the subscription is just $10 USD/month (you can easily cancel at anytime if you want to head back to Couchlandria). One account will work across all of your devices, including Windows, Mac, iPad and iPhone.
      2. Download and install the Windows Beta here.
      3. If you have any problems, have a look at our Help Centre FAQ resource first. Then, if you still have trouble, drop a line to and they'll sort you out.

      Thanks for your comment. Here’s our Help Centre article on the minimum hardware requirements:

      Could you give/link to the minimum PC requirements to run the Windows App (especially supported OS’s)? I have an old laptop that I want to use in the Bike Room that I’m setting up and I want to ensure that it can handle the requirements of the App and ANT+ stick. Thanks

      @ Raymond

      Very true! If you have a Windows PC and a iOS phone or tablet (or access to a MacBook or iMac) then you can share the workout from the iDevice to Strava, TrainingPeaks & over email. This ‘hack’ will soon be moot, as the ‘ride exporting’ feature is coming in short order to the Windows Beta.

      Thanks for commenting :-)

      You can actually share your workouts when done because they are shared cross platform. The workouts you have done will also appear in the OSX / iOS app and then you can share them from those apps.

      Hi Roelle

      At the moment we do not have this feature plugged into the Windows Beta. It is a feature we are working to introduce ASAP. While you can’t download the file at the moment, you will be able to do so retroactively, once the feature is introduced.

      Follow us on Facebook ( for news on the latest feature updates. The app should also ‘auto-update’ so that you always have the latest features.

      Thanks for writing us

      Will the Beta allow me to download the workout file done so I can upload it to my Trainingpeaks account?

      Hey Jim – great question!

      Your account is valid across all our supported platforms, which means you can SUFFER on iOS devices (iPad, iPhone) macOS desktops and laptops and Windows PCs with one account. You won’t be asked to pay twice to use multiple devices.

      Another benefit of this is that your profile is synced across the devices you’re logged into with your account. Details like your FTP & LTHR and your workout history in your Passport will sync across all your devices.

      Happy Suffering!

      I already have subscription that is on a Mac system. Will I be able to download the Widows app and use my subscription on a Windows system? I’m truly a Sufferlandrian, as I can’t commit to one operating system! Thanks
