Wahoo Rebrands The Sufferfest, Launches SYSTM Indoor Training Application

Wahoo launched SYSTM, a new indoor training application expanding their ecosystem to include a complete training platform.

As you probably know, a little over two years ago, Wahoo Fitness announced the acquisition of the Sufferfest, one of the most popular indoor cycling apps and known for its hard and entertaining cycling workout videos and comprehensive training plans.

Since the acquisition, we haven’t seen much happening with The Sufferfest. We’ve heard a lot about expanding the app into different platforms such as Android and Apple TV. However, we haven’t seen much activity from them since — and we were left wondering what is Wahoo going to do with the Sufferfest app and how do they plan on integrating it into their ecosystem.

Today, Wahoo is taking the first major step in that direction by rebranding the app, adding new features and rides, and finally launching an Android version, Which you can go and download today from the Google Play store.

“When Wahoo acquired The Sufferfest, we knew we had a real opportunity to revolutionize the way people train,” said David McQuillen, founder of The Sufferfest and Wahoo’s head of Training Services. “We set out to build the most comprehensive training app available — incorporating engaging content, the best sports science, useful training tips delivered in plain language, and tools that empower athletes across the spectrum to achieve their unique fitness goals. With the launch of SYSTM we have set the stage, offering a training solution that sits at the center of the Wahoo ecosystem of devices to make improving your performance simpler and more rewarding.”

“Wahoo’s mission has always been to create the easiest-to-use connected fitness training tools and devices. SYSTM is a perfect complement to our hardware — it’s a training platform that serves athletes of all levels, from weekend warriors to aspiring professionals,” said Wahoo CEO Mike Saturnia.
