Some do it for aesthetical reasons, some for reasons of health – losing weight. Especially in spring, people try to get rid of some extra kilos. Can running help? Yes, if you follow some simple rules!
The Internet is full of different training plans with just as many training philosophies. At 2PEAK hard facts are the basis of your plan and a daily tailor-made training is the focus. There is only one optimal plan for you and your life situation – we want to find it. We outlined below using five 2PEAK functions that help us do this.
2PEAK offers you a unique tool to auto detect your interval efforts and if they fit the designated criteria, will highlight and classify them as intervals.
Smart Training is meant to help you, to work on your deficits and to get you to your individual, optimal form.

2PEAK training planning is based on state of the art science and therefore takes into account the latest findings in performance physiology.
We will show you how endurance performance is delineated and classified on a scientific basis. In further articles we will show how these scientific facts influence modern training planning and how, thanks to the newest knowledge, you can increase your performance quicker and more specifically.
The Training Plan runs the training based on the well-known principle of periodization developed in training physiology. This means that specific forms of load and relief follow each other in a continuous sequence. For enthusiasts and competitive athletes a ratio of 3:1 has been determined as most effective. This means that after 3 days of load, one day of relief is given (this may be an easy day or a complete day off). Usually the duration increases within a block while the intensity declines. Normally two blocks of this nature build a Micro cycle lasting one week. Of course 2PEAK takes into account that the 3 sports of a triathlete are interdependent, but also include the opportunity to continue to train your upper body while your legs are exhausted.
2PEAK does simply optimize your (yes precisely yours and not the average of randomized group) fitness potential.
