The 100 Miles of Nowhere is a unique event in South Africa. It is an indoor cycling challenge where participants have to complete 100 Miles = 160km on a stationary bike. An arduous task that takes from 4hrs to 6hrs to complete. The event is hosted by Cadence Cycle studios powered by Selfloops.
For the event, Selfloops has enabled the real-time telemetry across the 6 different locations involved in the event.
This means it will be possible to follow the event live from anywhere around the world using just a browser.
Spinning® at Rimini Wellness 2016 with Selfloops Group Fitness.
The Selfloops Group Fitness service is a great tool to make people aware of their fitness performance and to train more effectively when real-time intensity feedback is given.
With this service, coaches can monitor their class and train people according to their fitness intensity zones.
Track multiple Concept2 rowers at the same time, using our Group Fitness Premium application. After the session, the workout can be uploaded on Selfloops for an in-depth analysis for coaches and users. (We support the Concept2 SkiErg too.) PM5 and PM4 are both supported.
SelfLoops has just been featured in a book on pro cycling by Fabrizio Tacchino, coach of the Italian Cycling Federation. The book is “Obiettivi, tipologie e mezzi di allenamento nel ciclismo moderno” Ed. Calzetti & Mariucci.
We are happy to announce that we have included the support for Moxy.
Moxy is an innovative device that uses infrared light to continuously monitor oxygen saturation (SmO₂) levels in the muscles of athletes while they exercise.
Oxygen is the fuel that drives the muscle, and Muscle Oxygen levels are constantly changing.
Moxy is used to assess athletes, guide their training, and hone their performance during competition. It helps identify optimal training intensity zones and provides feedback on the physiologic systems limiting performance.
Now with SelfLoops you can analyze how the Total Hemoglobin Concentration (THb measured in g/dL) and the Percentage of hemoglobin saturated with oxygen (Smo2 %) vary while exercising.
These are additional metrics that can be used to evaluate and measure your trainings.
Since Moxy conforms to the ANT+ Muscle Oxygen profile, we have added this profile to our indoor bike power training service. Basically, train with our app, automatically upload your data on SelfLoops and get all the analysis on your workout, including THb and and Smo2, on the SelfLoops website.
SelfLoops is featured in La Bicicletta magazine, March issue, in an article about software and services that are used to track and analyze performance.
A nice article that shows how important these tools are to improve performance and how easy is to access and use them nowadays. They are and will be a fundamental toolset for athletes, pros and amateurs.
Julián Sanz is an ultra cycling rider from Spain. He rides with his bike an incredible amount of kilometers in a row. He is currently training for the famous RAAM (Race Across America). He uses the SelfLoops telemetry to allow the support car behind him to follow his conditions in real-time during the ride. SelfLoops is also there to analyze his rides afterward. You can only improve what you measure!
