If you are an athlete uncertain about whether or not Stryd Membership is right for you, this article is designed to help you understand the things that might be most important to you about Data-Only versus Membership based on your situation. For a more complete breakdown of all of the features included in each membership option, see our Features Table here: Stryd Membership Options and Features Table for New Users
“Stryd is (or will be) my only training platform that I plan all of my training and conduct all of my analysis through”
Stryd Membership offers a comprehensive training solution that is ideal for athletes that want to manage all of their training solely in Stryd’s ecosystem. If you are training solely through Stryd, the Stryd Membership will undoubtedly prove to be a worthwhile investment for the added features of the Workout Builder, customized workout Libraries, and training plans specifically designed for your goal event and tailored to your training needs.
“I use another training platform in conjunction with Stryd, such as TrainingPeaks or Final Surge”
If you’re an athlete who receives your training from a coach or already subscribes to the premium services offered by TrainingPeaks or Final Surge, then Stryd Membership may or may not be right for you. Stryd Membership will offer some of the same features a Premium subscription to these third party platforms will (such as a workout builder or coach training plans), but ultimately there are proprietary features offered by Stryd Membership that are not offered by these other training platforms (such as our tried and true Race Power Calculator and the Training Distribution add-on for the Power Duration Curve). We recommend this group of users consult our complete feature breakdown Stryd Membership Options and Features Table for New Users to weigh your options.
“I am a very data-driven athlete who keeps close tabs on my metrics”
Regardless of whether you use another training platform or not in addition to Stryd, if you are a highly data-driven athlete, then Stryd Membership will be for you. Advanced Insights and trends based on your last 90 days of training, the Stryd Race Power Calculator, and the Training Distribution add-on to the Power Duration Curve will make Stryd Membership perfect for you.
