Final Surge Partners with Coach Jim Vance and Stryd to Integrate Running Power Metrics and Offer Power-Based Training Plans

Triathlon coach Jim Vance has announced a partnership with Final Surge to provide power-based run training zones and power-based training plans on the Final Surge platform.

Coach Vance is the author of Run with Power, the groundbreaking guide to running with a power meter. Now, in the Final Surge platform, Jim’s power-based training zones are automatically calculated for users upon entering their Running Functional Threshold Power (rFTPw).

The Final Surge platform now also displays data from Stryd power meter devices.  This data includes Running Power, Form Power and Leg Spring Stiffness in addition to Running Dynamic metrics such as Stride Length, Vertical Oscillation and Ground Contact Time.

“Running with power, especially Stryd, is the next breakthrough in the sport of running. This season, I have seen first hand how Ben Kanute, who competed in the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio, benefited from the use of running power in training and racing. At this year’s Ironman 70.3® World Championships, we used live running power data to help guide Kanute’s pacing during the running leg of the race, which helped him run to a second place finish.”
