We have a number of free training plans for every distance, and the ability to use the Training Logs, post questions in the forums, buy or sell gear in the classifieds, and read our articles from respected and qualified contributors.So why would anyone want to upgrade?Here are few reasons that might intrigue you. Even if you are currently a Performance Member, read on to make sure you are taking advantage of these great features!
If you are already a Performance Member but you don't know how to use some of these features, check out our reference page.
The main differences between Bronze, Silver and Gold are as follows:Bronze members have access to the features in the list above.
Silver members have access to premium training plans that contain more detailed workouts, such as specific swim sets, warmups, cool downs, and more, rather than the simpler "Run: 25 minutes" you'll find in the Bronze/Free plans. (The Bronze plans and free plans are the same, but Bronze members can import the plans and use the Performance features in the log.)
Gold members have access to everything already mentioned, plus they can use the amazing Custom Training Plan Creator, which asks you questions about your current fitness, age, gender, weight, pace, work schedule, etc. and creates a plan that will take you from your current fitness to the next level, built around your life!
