Zwift has just rolled out the first events in the new women’s “PowerUp” group workout series.
For 12 weeks, Olympic gold medalists Kristin Armstrong and Dani Rowe will bring key workouts they’ve used throughout their careers to Zwifters around the world.
Each week’s workout will be offered at several time zones throughout the week, with Kristin and Dani joining live twice a month.
Most of the events are for ladies only, but there are some unisex events mixed in.
Kristin Armstrong is the most decorated U.S. women’s cyclist of all time and the best time-trialist in sports history. A three-time Olympic Gold Medalist and two-time World Champ, Armstrong is the only female athlete to win the same event in three consecutive Olympic Summer Games (Beijing 2008, London 2012, Rio 2016).
These days, she’s in Boise, Idaho, where she’s started a business called PIVOT Lifestyle + Fitness that focuses on health and fitness. And, some days, she pops into the Zwift studio to offer insight with the PowerUp Cycling Podcast.
As a three-time World Champion, two-time European Champion, Olympic Gold Medalist, and the World Record holder for the 3km Team Pursuit, Dani Rowe (nee King) was an absolute legend in the saddle.
In 2018, at age 28, Rowe retired from professional cycling, and now spends her time working with sponsors, partners, and making media appearances. And that’s not even getting into her very own coaching business, Rowe and King. Like Kristin, some days she pops into the Zwift studio to offer insight with the PowerUp Cycling Podcast.
