Why We Created Optimize

There are a number of training apps and platforms out there, so why did FasCat create Optimize? Well, it's pretty simple: No one else is combining data from both power meters and wearables into a single, actionable dashboard that makes sense for cyclists and endurance athletes (runners, swimmers, multisport and even nordic)

In this special edition podcast, Ben Delaney and I talk about what drove FasCat to create Optimize - which was you!

Power meters and heart rate monitors are excellent sources of data on workload. And wearables like Oura and Whoop provide HRV data previously unavailable for everyday athletes looking to quantify recovery. Before Optimize, these two sides of the equation existed only in their own respective vacuums. Siloed data.

Now, Optimize uses a proprietary algorithm that balances both the workload and the recovery to give you clear direction on how to train.

Further, the Optimize training platform incorporates all of our training plans, workouts, meal plans, and recipes. It syncs with Garmin and Wahoo computers to upload your workout data, and it is compatible with Oura, Whoop, and many Garmin watches to upload your sleep and HRV data.

Instead of selling individuals plans as we have done in the past, we now sell subscriptions to Optimize that include unlimited access to all of our plans.

Subscribe today to start training with a plan and with the guidance of Optimize!
