Vote here for the feature request(s) you want the FasCat Software Engineers to develop as soon as possible 🚀🐆💥
release notes below 👇
Q: What wearables are you compatible with?
A: Whoop, Oura, and Garmin models that record sleep & HRV (like the Fenix and ForeRunner 955). We are working on Apple Watch compatibility - please check back soon!
Check if your Garmin records sleep & HRV here
Q: Are you compatible with Apple Watch?
A: Not yet, but very VERY soon (its a TOP priority for us)
Q: What bike computers are you compatible with?
A: Garmin, Wahoo and Hammerhead very soon (February 🤞)
Q: Do I need a wearable to use Optimize?
A: No you may use our training & meal plans, workouts and recipes. Your power data will point the needle.
Q: What is the difference between the basic and the intermediate plans?
A: The basic plan is 4 – 8 hours of training per week and the intermediate is 8 – 12 hours of training per week. More training will make you faster if you are on the fence 💪
Q: Can I buy a plan like the way you use to sell plans?
A: No, we have moved to a subscription-based training app. This allows us to innovate and bring you a complete training solution compared to one-off six week training plans.
Q: How do I get help from the FasCat Coaches with my training plan?
A: After subscribing, click the ⍰ in the upper right of the app - we will reply promptly during normal business hours, M-F 8am -7pm MST.
Q: Can I use the training plan on Zwift
A: Yes! But at the moment you will have to do the workout manually - we are waiting on Zwift to grant us access to their API to make this feature possibility.
Q: Can I export my workouts to my bike computer?
A: Yes - but not just yet, we are working as fast as we can! Would estimate end of Q1 2023
Q: Do I need a powermeter to follow your plan?
A: No, you can follow our plan with a simple heart rate monitor and rate of perceived exertion. All our plans are zone based and work with powermeter, heart rate monitors and RPE.
Q: Do I need a powermeter to use Optimize?
A: Yes, but we are working on an heart rate based OTS, hrOTS for runners, multiport and even nordic XC skiers 🚀.
You may follow any training plan without a powermeter the old fashioned way (with a timer)
Q: Does Optimize Synch with TrainingPeaks
A: No, you may follow your plan exclusively from our app 😎 You may request your plan to be shared by us in TrainingPeaks. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Q: What if I have a question about my plan?
A: For all coaching & training plan support questions, click the ⍰ in the upper right of the app
Q: Which Plan Should I Do, Do Next?
A: Ask us by telling us what you are training for and when it is >> by clicking the ⍰ in the upper right of the app a FasCat Coach will reply shortly
Q: I have a 4 day work trip coming up where I won’t be able to follow the plan, what should I do?
Q: I don’t use TrainingPeaks. Is this something I have to use? Is it worth it?
A: You do not need TrainingPeaks to follow our plans. You may follow your plan exclusively in the Optimize App
