The Workout feature is available on the ROUVY App for all platforms.
Let’s get started! Go to the ROUVY App and LOG IN with your ROUVY credentials (email address and password).
Get to the cycling DASHBOARD. On the main screen of the cycling section, you need to click on the WORKOUT button at the bottom right corner. See the image below.

After clicking the WORKOUT button, you will land on the WORKOUTS dashboard. There you will see different types of workouts. First come the Recommended workouts and then the folders below with different types of workouts.

If you choose the WORKOUT, you will see:

If you have already paired your trainer, it will connect automatically once you start the WORKOUT. Also, you can click on the icons on the top bar and connect a new trainer or sensor.

WORKOUT screen Description
Effort means how well you stick to the prescribed power (1.)
It shows your average and maximum values for Cadence, Power and Heart rate, if you have those sensors available and paired (2.)
It shows the Time, since you started and the remaining time in the workout (3.)
It shows your current heart rate, power, and cadence (4.)
It shows workout segments and also your current power output overlaid on each of the intervals (5.)
It gives info about the current segment and the next segment (6.)
There you can adjust the resistance. You can skip intervals. You can pause training (7.)
It is the menu where you find the settings and sensors and end the ride (8.)
It shows the earned coins (9.)
After finishing your WORKOUT, you will get the WORKOUT SUMMARY. There you have the option to either SAVE the workout or DISCARD IT.
Also, you can review how well you kept the power output compared to the prescribed intervals.
If you ride an FTP test, you will also get your new FTP value there.
To go back to the cycling section, you have three options:
- Click on CYCLING at the top middle of the screen.
- Click on the arrow next to workouts.
- Press escape on your keyboard.
If you select the FTP test, you are required to enter your estimated FTP.
If you are not sure, you can start with 200W. We add 5% to your entered value and that becomes your target power.
If this is too hard, after you rest, restart the test and lower the value accordingly. The power value represents a power output you should be able to sustain for 1 hour even though the test itself only lasts 20 minutes.
You will get your new FTP value in the workout summary after the FTP test.
For browsing our WORKOUT database, use the search feature on our website.
During the workout session, you will not be able to see other AVATARS of other riders on the ROUTE.
If you wish to enjoy your WORKOUT alone, you can HIDE OTHER USERS by switching the feature on in the App SETTINGS.
Workout ACTIVITIES will not appear on Leaderboards or route records.
Always DOWNLOAD THE VIDEO of the ROUTE before the ride.
While the Smart trainer resistance is controlled by the ERG segments, the rider’s AVATAR is moving just by power, like if you were riding on a 0% slope.
