TrainingPeaks partnership brings industry-leading digital training solution to Canadian speed skating community

Online platform will allow coaches and athletes to better plan, track and analyze on-ice and off-ice training

OTTAWA, ONTARIO – An exciting new partnership between Speed Skating Canada and TrainingPeaks – a global leader in providing smart and effective digital training solutions for athletes and coaches – will provide members of the Canadian speed skating community discounted access to an all-in-one tool to help manage training plans and data analysis.

Founded in 1999, TrainingPeaks has revolutionized the way that coaches and athletes plan training, track workouts, and analyze results. Their all-in-one platform – which can be accessed using the TrainingPeaks app or mobile-friendly website – allows athletes to access training plans and report their results, while also providing coaches a robust platform to effectively manage and track each of the athletes within their program.

As part of this new partnership, the athletes and coaches within Canada’s National Program will each receive a TrainingPeaks premium account. The partnership benefits also extend down to Speed Skating Canada’s membership base, providing athletes and coaches at all levels of the sport with a 20% discount off Premium Athlete and Coach accounts.

Members can sign up for a FREE TrainingPeaks Premium trial and enter the promo code – which will be shared directly with PTSOs and Clubs – to apply the 20% discount to their subscription.

“We’re excited that athletes and coaches from across the Canadian speed skating community will now have access to an industry-leading platform to help plan, track and analyze their training. TrainingPeaks is a tool already used by coaches and support staff within our National Programs, who use the data collected to make educated, evidence-based decisions that ensure skaters are getting the most out of their training and will be ready for optimal performance at competitions. This new partnership will help bring that same level of professionalism to the lower tiers of our sport, providing up-and-coming coaches with a new tool to help them more effectively manage the next generation of skaters.”

Joe Morissette, Chief Executive Officer, Speed Skating Canada

In addition to Speed Skating Canada, TrainingPeaks is partnered with over 30 national sport governing bodies from around the world, including longstanding relationships with Triathlon Canada and Cycling Canada. Their platform is also used by professional teams in endurance sports such as cycling, running, swimming and rowing.

To facilitate the rollout of this new partnership, a custom portal has been created for Speed Skating Canada members, providing easy access to membership benefits, as well as sport-specific training plans and resources.

“We’re excited to support Speed Skating Canada with our suite of advanced training tools so that both their National Team and membership base can train smarter and achieve their full potential.”
