CXC Academy

How Training Works

As a subscribing member you will have access to training plans and videos CXC Academy publishes monthly.

You can decide on three different training plans, based on annual hours of training. The plans are written to be a blueprint and a guide for your training. Many weeks can be done as scheduled, or adjusted depending on your weekly schedule.

The training year is broken in 13 training periods of 28 days each. At the start of each training period a fresh plan for the next four weeks is laid out. All plans will help to keep you on track: L1 to L5 workouts, intensity days, over distance days, strengths days. You will learn a wide range of tips and tricks on how to enhance your training. Depending on the plan, expect to commit to at least 3-6 training sessions per week to ensure the programs’ goals are met.

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.
