CycleMasters: All new features and updates

date_range Last updated: 1 month ago

Exactly 10 years ago ClubVirtual produced its first virtual cycling lessons. Over the past decade, ClubVirtual grew into an international platform for virtual cycling lessons. Now, 10 years later, it’s time for the next step. We have changed our name to “CycleMasters”, a new name and a new website. What does this mean for you? You can read all about it here!

A new name and look & feel: ClubVirtual moves on as CycleMasters
We decided on a name that’s more in line with what we offer: excellent cycling lessons! In addition to a new name, we also updated the look & feel of our product. Our 'house color' magenta has been replaced by yellow and darker elements.

CycleMasters Programs: customized training programs for your personal goal(s)
With the CycleMasters Programs, you work on your personal goal(s) with the help of our customized training programs. Do you want to lose weight? Then choose a fat burning program! Get fit in 8 weeks or train with our instructors to climb the Alpe d'Huez or Mont Ventoux.

Chromecast support: streaming to your TV has never been easier
With the completely updated video player, streaming the lessons to a TV has never been easier. The system now supports Chromecast as well as Airplay. The only thing you need is a Google Chromecast that you plug into the HDMI port of your TV. You operate the program via your smartphone, tablet, or computer. 

International content: lessons available in 3 languages
From now on, we offer the lessons on our website in 3 languages. Besides the complete range of the Dutch lessons, you can now also follow the lessons in English or French. Our fantastic international instructors are here for you!

Completely updated video player: reliable playback option on all your devices
We want to make sure that our lessons can be played without any problems on as many devices as possible. That is why we chose to use an entirely new video player. This player contains the latest technology to ensure hassle-free and high-quality playback of videos on your devices! Click here to see an overview of all supporting platforms and browsers.

New interface for the lessons: a stylish interface with RPM display
The interface of the lessons has been adjusted to ensure that you will enjoy our lessons even more. The information and instructions have moved from the left to the top of the screen. The country and location of the chosen lesson will constantly be visible in the lower-left corner. Additionally, the new CycleMasters lessons are also showing the RPM values of our instructor. 

Lesson formats: adjusted categories and levels
We adjusted the categories and levels of our lessons. The adjustments are mainly based on what you need, meaning that the lessons are now subdivided into new categories and intensity levels. Read more about this in this article.

Learn the Moves: video tutorials to get the most out of your training
Our instructors explain everything about the technique of indoor cycling in our tutorial series 'Learn the Moves'. These videos cover the basic techniques like hand positions, exercises and how to adjust your bike. We also offer videos with more information on cardiac training, advanced cycling techniques, and we have tips on how to recover after (intensive) training programs.

Music Only: just you and the music!
Do you want to enjoy the music without having the instructor firing his motivating encouragements at you? You can! The new CycleMasters lessons now have the option to (temporarily) turn off the instructor's voice. The video shows the instructor, so you can still see the movements. Now it’s just you and the music!
