As many know, we’ve been working hard on a technology that harnesses the principles we profess within HIIT Science. This has proved no easy task. We are grateful for the tireless work ethic from our lead developer, as well as our brilliant back end data scientists that are implementing new intelligence into the system that extends on the HIIT Science principles. 

We knew that we would be getting close to having something worthy of a useful product once our system could automatically deliver a basic training plan for an event, and that it did so in a way that was as good or better than what we could deliver ourselves via existing online coaching platforms (Stage 3 in Figure 1 from Zignoli). While we’ve only passed through mile 1 of this marathon, we may be nearing a tipping point for the triathlon context.

To help push us along further, we are in search of more help from interested triathletes looking for a free training program in return for feedback. To participate, you must:

  1. Be a triathlete currently training more than 8 hours per week in swim, bike and run training, and able to follow a plan to perform in a real event.
  2. Own an advanced Garmin watch connected to Garmin Connect, with working power meter and heart rate monitor.
  3. Be able to routinely connect with us to provide kind but frank and helpful feedback to make the product better.

At time of writing (late September), its likely you’ll be located in the Southern Hemisphere, in a relatively Covid-free area (low restriction on training), and preparing for a summer event. However we are open to any triathlete preparing anywhere for a single or multiple events over the next 6 months.

Interested participants (limited to 10), please contact: info@hiitscience.com
