Craig Alexander, affectionately known as Crowie, has selected TrainingPeaks to be his official training software. Building upon several years of reliance on the software, the 3-time Ironman World Champion and 2-time Ironman 70.3 World Champion will use TrainingPeaks together with his performance team throughout 2012 and 2013 to monitor, analyze and plan his training and racing.
“It’s a true honor to publicly partner with Crowie. He’s not only an outstanding athlete but also a humble ambassador for triathlon who is well respected by everyone involved with the sport,” said Gear Fisher, CEO of TrainingPeaks. “We are really looking forward to helping Crowie and his team utilize our tools to have another season with incredible results.”
Alexander tracks all his workouts and races, then uploads his heart rate, power and GPS data to TrainingPeaks for analysis by his coaching team. Using tools including the Performance Manager ChartTM and each workout’s Training Stress ScoreTM they get in-depth insight into his fitness required to adapt his triathlon training for optimal results.
"TrainingPeaks is an essential tool my performance team relies upon. Every workout is tracked within TrainingPeaks and the post-workout analysis helps drive my training program so we can easily measure my fitness gains," said Alexander. "As I get older the science of training becomes more important to incorporate into my workout selection. TrainingPeaks is at the leading edge of science and training and I have found nothing else compares."
Throughout 2012 and 2013, select workouts from Crowie’s training will be made available for the public to analyze themselves on his profile page at TrainingPeaks.com. Fans will be able to interact with his data online or by downloading to TrainingPeaks’ desktop power data analysis software WKO+.
