What is Xert Academy?
Xert Academy was created to help Xerters learn more about how the platform works by guiding them through a three-part educuation classes covering our three pillars: Discover, Improve, & Perform. When joining a live Xert Academy session, you’ll participate in an interactive group ride experience while learning about the Xert platform via a Zoom call directly with the Xert Team. This provides you an opportunity to learn more about how Xert works and how Xert can help you improve.
Discover – Mastering Xert 101
Xert Academy begins with a discussion on discovering your fitness with Xert. The session discusses what each part of your fitness signature represents, as well as how your signature affects your ability to produce power. After all, you’re more than just your FTP. The back end of the discussion focuses on the key concept of breakthroughs. We discuss what a breakthrough means, chat about how you can get a breakthrough, & discuss the different types of breakthroughs you’ll see in Xert, especially the dreaded near-breakthrough.
Improve – Mastering Xert 201
The second part of the Xert Academy series continues building upon what you learned in the first session by discussing how Xert can help you improve your own personal fitness. We talk about the general concepts behind Xert’s adaptive training advisor – such as progressive overload & polarization. Finally, we discuss some of the various ways that you can train with Xert – whether that’s group sessions, solo workouts, or outdoor rides.
Perform – Mastering Xert 301
