Thursdays on Zwift!
Train like a pro
Ever dreamt of training like a pro? If yes you're in the right place! Where? On Zwift with NGNM!
Infact NGNM has partnered with pro-cyclist Valentina Scandolara for a series of group workouts, designed and led by super Vale! Who is she? Valentina is a several times European Champion, medalist at World Championships, and winner of the @TourDownUnder. A superb athlete and a wonderful woman, she holds a degree in Psychology and is a UCI-certified cycling coach. NGNM is offering a set of specific training rides that target Endurance, Strength or Vo2Max.
Each week we’re rotating these workouts with a few variations of intensity and/or length. Please follow the on-screen prompts during the training ride. Valentina will lead a few of these rides, so if you’re lucky you’ll train side by side to her.
Why this group workouts is great!
Knowledge is power. You get direct insights from pro-cyclist Valentina Scandolara on why you're doing what you're doing... which helps you to ultimately become your own coach and know how and when to train.
Motivation. Nothing beats the dynamic of a group! Rather than watching TV, listening to podcasts or music to kill time during your workouts, training in a group is far more engaging and effective.
Meet other women like you around the world. "We're a borderless nation united by our ideas, our beliefs and love for cycling". NGNM mantra.
Important to know
Each one of you works at their own FTP number. Whether pushing 150w or 250w, you all pedal side by side thanks to Zwift's magic algorithm. Each workout is automatically referenced to your own FTP value, therefore everyone will do the same exact workout regardless of disparity in output.
Pls have your FTP value ready. Make sure to have recently tested for FTP prior to joining these workouts, to make sure you're not over or under training.
Keep Companion open. If you want to join in on the group chat and get the most our of the group experience, download the Companion app by Zwift and keep it open! Make sure it's connected to the same WIFI network as your laptop/tablet you're running Zwift on.
