179. Cycling Week: Wheels Up with Wahoo Fitness Founder, Chip Hawkins

When Wahoo Fitness Founder, Chip Hawkins launched his company back in 2009, the tech and data scene for fitness and endurance sports was almost non-existent. But thanks to Chip, here we are!

Wahoo Fitness is a game changing fitness technology company that took the old school traditional indoor bike trainer and made it compatible with your mobile devices and laptops offering riders insight into their heartrate, watts, speed, cadence and great online training platforms. Beyond its famous Wahoo KICKR Smart Trainer and KICKR Core, The Wahoo Fitness ecosystem includes HRM, GPS Bike Computers, a cool new Rival Sports Watch, Smart Bikes, Bike Sensors, Speedplay Pedals, Cycling Sensors and the Sufferfest content and training platform, catering to all levels of cyclists, triathletes, and most recently, runners. Wahoo Fitness products are compatible with over 110 cycling, running & fitness apps that help maximize and transform your workout.

I sync up with Chip about where Wahoo Fitness began, the inspiration behind the brand and products, the ideation behind the game changing indoor smart trainer, what the indoor cycling landscape was like when Wahoo Fitness launched, how the business has grown and evolved, and what’s new and next for the rest of 2021 and into 2022.  Plus, we talk triathlon, windsurfing, and the big race Chip is currently training for!

You just download the app , it connects wirelessly to your  exercise equipment: bike trainers, treadmills, and more

Beyond the incredible courses, races, and worlds, Zwift offers top training programs across cycling, running, and triathlon called The Zwift Academy, which is what Kate came on board at Zwift to spearhead and launch in 2016. Here, champion Zwifters unlock coveted sought after real-life opportunities like earning a spot on the CANYON//SRAM Pro Cycling Team.

On this episode, Kate and I sync up about Zwift’s most exciting new venture as the presenting sponsor for the 2022 Tour de France Femme, kicking off on July 24th, 2022 and how the gaming platform has played a major role in increasing the rise of women to the sport of cycling and the Zwift community.
