Strava partners with Sufferfest
Sufferest training videos now available in Strava app
Strava has partnered with Sufferfest to bring the company’s unique training videos to the social training app, now available to all premium users.
There are currently three videos, Fight Club, Revolver and Rubber Glove, available through their Android app, with the Apple iOS app following shortly. The training videos which combine actual race footage with music and instructions to enliven your turbo trainer sessions. Strava says it will be releasing more videos over time as soon as possible.
I tried the Revolver video and it worked smoothly on my Samsung tablet. Propped up on the top of the bookcase in front of the turbo trainer, it provided a good distraction and the 45 minutes flew by. You could stream the video through a television if you have the necessary HDMI cable or Airplay. At the completion of a video, you can save your activity and share it with your friends via Facebook and Twitter.
There’s nothing to stop you buying individual Sufferfest videos already of course (Dave reviewed Downward Spiral a while back) , but if you’re currently a Strava premium member this is a nice bit of added value to your yearly subscription, especially as we head into the winter.
(You might have to update to the latest version of the Strava app to to see the Training Videos tab in the drop down menu.)
if you are on Strava then make sure to join the road.cc club and share your rides with the community.
