Structured Workouts Get Results
No matter what aspect of your fitness you want to improve, we have a Sufferfest for that. Our structured workouts are designed by elite coaches to target everything from climbing to speed, endurance to base, race simulation to efficiency, time trialling to triathlon. So many ways to Suffer, so little time.
THE WORLD’S GREATEST RACES
Exclusively-licensed footage puts you in the middle of the world's greatest races. You're not just a spectator, you're you're part of the action.
STORYLINES & MUSIC THAT DRAW YOU IN
Riding inside doesn't have to suck. Every workout has its own story, with arch rivals, epic battles, and nail-biting sprint finishes. Pair that with killer soundtracks and you'll almost forget how much it hurts.
Personalized. Precise. Only From The Sufferfest
4DP™ will change the way you train. Our comprehensive fitness test goes beyond FTP, using four distinct metrics to reveal who you are as a cyclist and personalize every target in your workouts to match your unique profile. No other training app can do that.
Find Your Hidden Power
4DP™ measures your neuromuscular power (NM), Anaerobic Capacity (AC), Maximal Aerobic (MAP) and Functional Threshold Power (FTP) to determine what you’re capable of across a range of efforts. The app will then assign you a rider type—Sprinter, Attacker, Pursuiter, Time Triallist, Climber, or Rouleur—while specific workout recommendations will allow you to build strengths and address weaknesses.
Your Targets, Your Workouts
Training apps that just use FTP to set power targets have to guess what you can do. But 4DP™ knows exactly what you’re capable of and uses knowledge to tailor every target in every workout so you get the exact right training stimulus. No more wasting time on workouts that don’t work.
4DP™ uses the same testing and workout personalization protocol developed by world-class coach Neal Henderson of APEX Coaching to train his elite athletes. Grounded in science, verified by rigorous lab testing, and proven by victories in the most prestigious events in the world such as the Tour de France, World Championships and the Olympics. 4DP™ puts race-winning, individually-optimized training in your hands.

Train Smarter: The Science of Suffering
This isn't a game, this is cutting-edge sports science. We have the best minds in the business designing our workouts and creating plans for road, triathlon, cyclocross, xc mountain biking, and more. If you want results, we have the plan. All you have to do is Suffer.
CUTTING-EDGE SPORTS SCIENCE
We partner with APEX Coaching in Boulder, Colorado to bring you the most effective workouts and results-oriented training plans. Neal Henderson, APEX founder and our chief architect of Suffering, has trained dozens of national champions, world champions, world tour pros and olympians. He holds the distinction of having coached both Rohan Dennis and Evelyn Stevens to successful world hour record attempts.
Don't just Suffer, Suffer with a purpose. Your app subscription includes our full library of structured training plans for road, triathlon, cyclocross and XC mountain biking. With options for novice, intermediate and advanced riders, and integrating outside and inside rides, you'll easily find a plan for you.
Getting fast isn’t just about Suffering on the bike. Our training plans integrate structured cycling workouts, full-body yoga sessions, and mental training exercises to make you strong, flexible, focused, and mentally tough. The competition doesn’t have a chance.
15 MINUTES OR LESS
Our workouts are designed to give you maximum benefit with minimum time. So is our yoga progamme. Most of the sessions are 15 minutes or less, making them perfect for the time-crunched athlete looking to improve full-body strength and flexibility. You get straight to the exercises that matter, without having to stare at some stranger’s Downward Dog in a crowded yoga studio.
ALL PART OF THE PLAN
To help you get the most out of your training, we integrated the Yoga for Cyclists Programme into all of our training plans. Pre and post-workout yoga sessions target your Core, Flexibility, Posture, Recovery, and Breathing so you can maximise your Return on Suffering. The Travel sessions will make sure you stay strong in Couchlandria.
STRONG TO THE CORE
The 21 sessions included with the app are designed to strengthen notoriously weak areas for cyclists: your core, back, upper body and overall flexibility. Other sessions help you improve your balance, your agility and your posture. Feeling stressed or fatigued? The recovery and breathing sessions will make you feel right at Om.
Improve athletic performance
Legs alone can't get you where you're going. Whether you're gunning for the top of the podium or the top of the local climb, the stuff that really counts is right under your helmet.
10 week programme of modules
Over the course of 20 audio modules you’ll learn practical techniques that will help you identify who you are as an athlete, what you want, and exactly how to get it. Integration with all of The Sufferfest / APEX training plans means you’ll train smarter, get more out of your workouts, and see bigger gains than ever before.
DROP THEM LIKE A BAD HABIT
Want to train like the pros? This is their secret weapon. Developed with elite coaches and sports psychologists, this program will build your mental toughness and give you that competitive edge.
