INSCYD is known for its partnerships with national federations and professional teams. However, small-scale (one-man) coaching businesses and their amateur athletes can also significantly benefit
My need to better understand it kick started my business Tollmahawk Plus. My goal is to enable all athletes – whether they are professionals, weekend warriors or exercising for well-being – to learn how to train in a more efficient way.
Here are my 3 tips that helped me double my business in 4 months time:
Explain the data in an easy to understand way
INSCYD helps coaches like me to have a clearer picture of my athletes, with in-depth data. However, athletes want to understand the data too. You can build trust and commitment if you’re able to explain all the data to your athletes. This requires you to fully understand the data, so you can explain it in the most simple way.
What really helped me is to use INSCYD in my own training. As an athlete, I’m always keen to improve myself. I like spending time on researching ways to improve performance. This athlete perspective and curiosity enabled me to fully understand the sophisticated data from INSCYD. I can now easily explain it to the athletes that I coach.
The best coaches distinguish themselves by ongoing curiosity and continuous education. Coaches who are up-to-date can provide better services and give their athletes an advantage over their competition. Learn from world’s best coaches and scientists via the soon-to-launch INSCYD College – a comprehensive education platform for coaches and athletes.
For example, by creating my own custom training zones I’m now able to translate the INSCYD data into actionable zones that my athletes understand.
Create Custom Training Zones
INSCYD allows you to create training zones, based on individual metabolic performance metrics. This is the fastest way to make metabolic data actionable and understandable for the athlete.
The Training Zone Builder allows you to create very specific training zones, based on the metric you prefer. From lactate concentrations to carbohydrate combustion, it’s up to you.
Collaborate with a Well-Known Athlete to Expand Your Business
The combination of me, a well-known experienced athlete and athlete coach, together with INSCYD, the most powerful metabolic software, really helped expand my business. My race results proved the effectiveness of my training method. Many athletes are keen to learn how I train.
If you’re not an experienced successful athlete yourself, I’d recommend collaborating with one. Preferably a well-known athlete who also understands how the metabolic system works. See if you can find your local legend. This helps you to build credibility and showcase results.
For me it resulted in a powerful word-of-mouth promotion in which athletes come to me instead of me spending budget on paid advertisement. Even though there are many competitors in the market who also offer performance tests, none of them provide the in-depth data like INSCYD does.

Use INSCYD Metrics and Features to Improve Athlete Performance
INSCYD is the only tool that provides me with the most in-depth trustable data. VLamax, for instance, takes away all the guesswork when understanding whether the way an athlete has trained in the past matches their future goal.
why every coach and athlete should use performance testing
Not sure if your athletes really need a detailed metabolic report? Of course all pro athletes use metabolic tests to gain another 2-3% in their performance. But metabolic testing benefits all athletes who want evidence-based recommendations on how to become better in the most effective way.
This includes athletes ranging from a dedicated age grouper to a time restricted athlete who doesn’t want to waste precious time on ineffective training. In fact, here are 3 reasons why every coach and athlete should use performance testing.
But there are more aspects to becoming a better athlete than training only. For example, think of a fueling plan. This is crucial in endurance training and racing.
Tailor Nutrition Plans with INSCYD Fat and Carbohydrate Combustion Data
Once you know exactly how much fat and carbohydrates your athlete burns at any given exercise intensity, it becomes easy to create a personalized nutrition plan. Learn how Sports Nutritionist Coach Sofi Marin uses INSCYD to tailor nutrition plans that improve performance and recovery. Or start creating your own nutrition plan with these 5 steps.
I also noticed that the fat- and carbohydrate combustion data of INSCYD resonates very well with my athletes. Most of them heard about training for fat adaptation, but couldn’t really implement it until now.
