About The Sufferfest

Whether you have your sights set on the rainbow jersey or a personal best, The Sufferfest will get you there. With a huge library of structured workouts designed by elite coaches, connection to devices and smart trainers, activity archive, achievement tracking, yoga, mental training, and instant sharing to Strava, TrainingPeaks, Garmin Connect, Final Surge, and Today's Plan, it’s the only training app you need.





FTP isn't enough. Train like the pros with 4DP™

Training apps that just use a simple Functional Threshold Power (FTP) test to set power targets don't know what you're truly capable of. That means workouts that aren't as effective as they should be. The Sufferfest created Four-Dimensional Power™  to reveal your complete power profile and ensure that every power target in every workout is tailored to your unique physiology. You’ll work at the exact intensity necessary to get stronger, faster, and more powerful, without wasting a single pedal stroke.



All of your activities are recorded in your Passport, allowing you to analyse your performance and keep track of your progress. Instantly upload your activities to Strava, Garmin Connect, TrainingPeaks, Today's Plan and Final Surge to inspire the world with your Suffering.


Tailored Training Plans That Get Results

Thanks to 4DP™, you'll know exactly what you're capable of across a range of efforts. The Sufferfest training plans available through TrainingPeaks are tailored specifically to address those aspects of your fitness you need to improve, while simultaneously developing your strengths. Designed by the elite coaches at APEX Coaching, they'll get you ready to deliver a performance worthy of a World Champion.


Yoga & Mental Toughness for Cyclists

Thirty Yoga for Cyclists videos will help improve strength, enhance flexibility, and speed recovery. You'll also be able to build your mental toughness with a 10-week Mental Training Programme of 20 audio modules and associated exercises. The competition doesn't have a chance.
