Zwift Academy: Strength in Numbers

Zwift Academy: Strength in Numbers

ON August 23, 2017 by Andrew Burke

Hey guys and gals.

We’re days away from starting Zwift Academy – a six week course that runs from Sept 1st – Oct 13th. It’s a structured training and workout program made for every rider, at any age and level. Join us to build up your strength, speed, and create friendships around the world over 15 Zwift rides.

Workouts can be done anytime. For group rides and races, you’ll find many options across all time zones to fit your schedule. If you can’t make one, join another.


Training was designed by the team at Trainsharp, a company that works with first time riders and world tour cyclists. Coach Elliot Lipski will teach us the benefits of structured sessions, and how to “build that knowledge to benefit over a longer period of time.” So every rider finishes not only stronger, but smarter.

We’ll monitor workouts and progress with Today’s Plan. Everyone receives a free premium account for the duration of the program.


While it’s open to all ages and levels, Zwift Academy is also a competition. Women will be vying for a pro contract with CANYON//SRAM Racing and men under the age of 22 for a contract on Team Dimension Data’s U23 Continental squad.

Once in the semi-finals, the field gets narrowed and the training gets tougher. For more information and specifics, visit the Zwift Academy site.
