Normally I'd never even entertain the thought, but what does it take to get started with zwift?
Sounds more like a financial manager I have one of those too.Trainer has to be "smart"..communicate with the software. You can use PC not just iPad. Bottom line, probably a good $400 for the trainer plus the membership. Good trainers are like $1000 or something. I've thought of it..I think I'd be killed if I tried to get that past my financial advisor...
Fair enough. It's been a while since I've looked at Zwift's plans. My complaint when I last used them was mostly that 1) they had less clearly defined periodization and mostly just progressed to harder versions of what you were already doing and 2) recovery intervals too hard, hard intervals too easy so ineffective polarization. This may have changed recently. I usually have TR open minimized and Netflix full screened which helps with the boredom.Not so sure I’d agree that the Zwift training plans are not good - if fact - there is a lot of similarity. Structured, power based training is just that - the platform is the difference. To be fair - a lot of plans and workouts have been added to Zwift over the past year.
Smart bike trainer, computer/ipad/phone and a tv screen. TV is optional.Normally I'd never even entertain the thought, but what does it take to get started with zwift?

I use Zwift with a Wahoo direct drive and both have been self-isolation saviours for me.
