Track Your Class Stats with the Wahoo Fitness App

Many of our long time clients undoubtedly noticed a few months ago when they stopped receiving email summaries after class. This was unfortunately a technical issue that was out of my control. The stats service was provided by an outside party; they are currently having issues with that system.

But, sometimes when things go wrong, it directs us to a better way. And, that’s just what’s happened here!

Because we have the amazing Stages bikes and Stages power meter, you can track all of your workouts directly from the power meter using Bluetooth.

The information gathered via Wahoo is much more accurate and useful than the information that we were able to provide using our previous service.

And, the Wahoo app allows you to link a Training Peaks account (which is free), so that you can add each workout into your personal training calendar.

 

Set-up Instructions:

Follow these step-by-step instruction to track your class performance:

-From the app store, download Wahoo Fitness to your smartphone.
