How Training Works
As a subscribing member you will have access to training plans and videos CXC Academy publishes monthly.
Your training year with us is broken into four week periods starting each week on a Monday and concluding on Sunday. Therefore, the whole year consists of 13 training periods with 28 days in each period. Each month we publish new training plans designed for Novice (250 training hrs/yr), Intermediate (400 training hrs/yr) and Advanced (550 training hrs/yr) level users. Plan to commit to at least 3-4 training sessions per week to ensure you will reach your program goals.
If you are joining CXC Academy in the middle of the year, we strongly suggest to start with Training Period 1 - which runs throughout April and May, - and follow it for two weeks before transitioning to the current Training Period you are in.
CXC Academy training plans are now integrated with TrainingPeaks™ - the complete web, mobile and desktop solution for enabling smart and effective endurance training. Available to access on iPhone, Android or the web, the service will allow the following uses:

"Premium" account upgrades can be done at any time to utilize the software's full capacity of analysis and planning tools.
