  • If on mobile, click on the SETTINGS tab at the right hand bottom side of the screen

Click on the profile tab


Enter your birthdate and weight.  


Next, enter your Functional Threshold Power number.  If you are an avid outdoor cyclist (3-5 times a week), click on this link AVID OUTDOOR CYCLISTS FTP CHART , all others click FTP CHART to determine the Functional Threshold Power number you should enter


Enter your Max Heart Rate.    If you know your Max HR, enter.  Otherwise, calculate it by using the following equation:

(or CLICK HERE to see Chart for Max Heart Rate Numbers)


UNCHECK the box just above the MAX HEART RATE.


You do not need to fill in the Lactate Threshold or Resting Heart rate sections, the program will determine that over time.



STEP 2: Directions for Setting Up APP for Bike

We highly suggest you download the free ICG Training App so you can pair it with our bikes.  It will save you time from having to input a bunch of data every time you come to a class.  Follow the directions below.


Go to the app store on your phone and download the free ICG Training App.

OPTIONAL: Directions for Pairing Personal Heart Rate Strap at Home for Spin Class

Please note ONLY heart rate straps work, not heart rate watches.  Your heart rate strap needs to be Bluetooth or ANT+ enabled. Even Orange Theory heart rate straps work.  Please note, if you have a Polar heart rate strap, it must be the H7, which is Bluetooth enabled.  All other heart rate straps by Polar will work on the bike but not on the computer systems to follow on screen. If you cannot get the strap to pair with the app, bring it in and we will pair with our system.  Remember to tell the instructor that you want to pair a strap.


You can set up your heart rate monitor from home before you come in if it is Bluetooth compatible.  Make sure the Bluetooth is turned on in your phone.  Go into settings and select PAIR HR STRAP.


If you know the BLE or ANT+ number of your strap, you can enter here.  Or your can scan for it as long as your bluetooth is enabled.
