Group Workouts on Zwift

Group workouts can be more motivating and social than working out on your own, as well as provide you with more accountability for getting on the bike.  With the introduction of virtual cycling platforms you can train in a much more targeted way.  Dutch Diesel Cycling has brought the group workout into the virtual world on Zwift.  Our group workouts use the rubber band concept to keep everyone together and you will do the same workout as everyone else, but at your own ability based on your personal FTP.  We have a Discord voice channel open if you want to listen to the instructions of the coach, or you can just listen to your music and see instructions on screen in the Zwift app.

How to join a group workout

Our coach led group workouts are all done on in the Zwift platform, so you need to be subscribed to Zwift to participate.  Each month there will be a separate theme, for example VO2 Max, sprinting, muscular endurance, etc.  Currently these workouts are scheduled for each Thursday's at 6:30 PM Pacific, but we can add sessions based on demand.  If you want to join our upcoming session, purchase and download the file on this page and follow these instructions.
