Training Tools

Below we list just some of the electronic training tools that you can use, and many club members use, to stay on track while they train and race. If you need help setting up this software, or advice on what equipment to buy, please join ATC and then post your questions on our private Facebook group. Coaches and members alike are here to help!


Zwift is a turbo trainer game that enables you to link you turbo trainer up your computer, your iPad and iPhone, letting you ride with other cyclists in a virtual environment, therefore helping to alleviate some of the boredom associated with indoor riding and also to help you focus on targeting and achieving training goals no matter what the weather or time of year. Zwift will synch with Strava to catalogue all of your training efforts in one location.


Strava is a website and mobile app used to track athletic activity via GPS. You can also connect to other club members just like on social media. You can follow their progress and display your own. Additionally, you can connect to Zwift and your Garmin Connect account to automatically populate Strava and log your activity all in one location.

Garmin Connect – running, walking, cycling, swimming, skiing, triathlons – no matter how you move, you can record your active lifestyle on Garmin Connect. All the data from your Garmin device, or devices, can be uploaded to Garmin Connect using the Garmin Express application. It will then synchronize to your Strava account to give you all workouts in one place. In combination with Zwift and Strava, Garmin Connect completes the entire circle of data that you need to track all of your progress as a triathlete.
