All About Training Plans

A Training Plan is a structured set of workouts organized by week.
Athletes pay for a training plan once and may restart or redo the plan as many times as they wish. 
Examples of training plans are 2k Plan, 5k Plan, Sprints, Half Marathon, etc. 

Features

ErgZone keeps track of athletes' performances throughout the training plan and provides summaries to help athletes (and coaches) gauge their progress. 

Athletes may use the app connected to the PM5 monitor during the workout or program it manually on the machine and report their results manually on ErgZone app.
We have added the "Manual Result" option for athletes that don't have access to a machine equipped with a PM5 monitor. This means any athlete could use a Training Plan on ErgZone app to keep track of their data, even the ones that does not own a Concept2 machine. 

The screenshots below demonstrates how training plans are displayed for athletes along with how the screen changes as athletes work their way through it.
