The 12-week FTP Builder Program has been designed by our City Alps coaches to improve your functional threshold power or FTP score. The program isn't going to be easy, but if you stick with it, you will take your cycling to the next level!

The 12-week FTP Builder program includes

  • Pre, mid and post FTP testing (3 tests)

  • 60-minute wattage-based group indoor cycle sessions (all tailored to the FTP Builder program)

  • A 90-minute weekly indoor endurance Ride class - these longer classes have been introduced especially for riders on this program. These will be on a Thursday evening and a Sunday morning. You can attend either of these sessions

  • Weekly pre-recorded mobility classes to do in your own time (full body mobility sessions to improve balance, strength and stability)

  • Weekly live zoom strength, conditioning & core classes (a structured, progressive program designed to work on imbalances, core strength and areas of weaknesses for cyclists, and to help you push more power though the pedals)

  • Access to outdoor City Alps social club rides

  • 12-week progress tracker calendar and stickers - there is something about a physical tracker and seeing your progress that just works 

  • A pair of City Alps cycling socks 

  • Access to coaches (via WhatsApp) for training advice

  • Weekly emails with updates, good news, various tips and tricks for cyclists, inspiration to keep you going, and more

  • Prizes for biggest improvements in FTP number to bodyweight ratio (this is the number that matters the most!)

Program Structure


The program, on a high level basis, is structured as 3 progressive blocks of 4 weeks each, starting with base building. The full program and more details will be sent to all those who have signed-up.

Everyone will, of course, adapt to the training plan in a slightly different way. Your training will be affected by diet, sleep and other factors such as how stressful your job is and other life events. The plan will serve as a framework for you to follow and you’ll need to allocate around 7 hours a week (in the bigger blocks of training). We take a holistic and long-term view of training and health at City Alps. Try be as consistent as life allows, focus on the process and consistency and the results will follow!
