Final Surge® is used by athletes and teams of many sports around the world, including running, cycling, triathlon, duathlon, and Xterra where performing your best is what it’s all about.
The Daily View shows basic workout data, plus whether the workout status is planned or completed. If completed, the workout is color-coded to indicate whether the workout was completed as planned (Green). If the workout was not completed as planned, color-coding indicates whether the workout was simply missed (Red)… or was under, or over, performed (Yellow).
In the Daily View, tap on the Quick Complete button to easily enter workout data, including just one tap on the Complete As Planned button to automatically enter Distance, Duration, and Pace for the workout, plus you can easily add How You Felt, your Perceived Effort, and Workout Notes. These features make manual entry a snap, but of course, the App automatically syncs workout data from your sports watch and other devices through platforms like Garmin Connect®, Strava®, Polar Flow®, and others.
The Quick View button puts the most important workout information only one tap away, which is especially nice when you have several workouts or are a coach working with several athletes.
The Quick Comment button opens a messaging-style screen where comments between coach and athlete for each workout are readily available.
Of course, if you are using a sports watch or similar tracking device and want to dive into every workout detail, just tap on the top of the workout to show the Details View. The Details View has the following 5 tabs: Planned Versus Completed, Laps (Splits), Workout Map, Workout Graphs, and Comments between Coach and Athlete for each workout.
The Final Surge App also has a Weekly View that doesn’t require you to awkwardly put your phone into a landscape position. An entire week of workouts is shown, and just like with the Daily View, workouts are color-coded to instantly show you the status of each workout. Tapping on any of the workouts in the Weekly View opens the same 5 Workout Details screens available for the Daily View.
Coaches can easily access a list of their athletes and teams with one tap, and review and manage their Athletes’ Workout Calendars and Teams’ Workout Calendars with the same detail as the Athlete’s View. The App includes Push Notifications to notify of workout completions, workout comments and other real-time occurrences in training.
Team and Group calendars, internal message boards and individual messaging make this App ideal for high school, collegiate, professional and club teams.
The App syncs with Garmin Connect, Strava, and other platforms to access all major sports watches and similar tracking devices and provides highly accurate geopositioning information with corrected elevation.
The App supports the new running power tracking and advanced cycling power metrics, such as weighted power, max power, average power, and intensity.
The App also tracks your Vitals, including your weight, sleep, blood pressure, etc. to monitor your overall heath and progress due to improved fitness. It also includes a Workout History capability to review summary presentations of your past workouts.
Easily load Training Plans for virtually any kind of race from the world’s best coaches and work with a coach to receive individualized training to reach your most aspirational goals. The App includes a Coach's Mailbox for direct private communication and private Social Walls that provide a complete social media experience to drive athlete motivation and engagement.
You can track Workout Gear (bikes and shoes) and save your favorite Workout Routes. Your own customized Workout Zones (HR and power) can be used to make sure you are always performing an optimized workout. The App can access leading Workout Calculators to always make sure you are working out at the right pace.
The New Final Surge App Version 3 gives a whole new meaning to... Train with a purpose™.
The workout library has been updated to now include structured workouts that you have built in the new Final Surge web beta platform.
In addition, you can now easily search and filter your workout library to quickly find the workout you are looking for and apply it to your calendar or the calendar of a coached athlete.
We have also fixed some minor bugs and improved the user interface of several screens.

Love but Wish I could easily see my upcoming events and races
Just started using the App and I love it! Compared it to others, and I love the simplicity and calendar views views. I do both road races and triathlons, so keeping up with my training is challenging. This app just made it easier.
The one thing I wished it had was a way to easily enter and see races and events. I don’t really need a countdown calendar or anything (I usually do a few races in a season), but I’d love to see the list quickly.
Also, would love a connection to Zwift so I can connect my bike trainer sessions. :)
Great app once working, terrible tech support
Using iPhone X and Apple watch series 3, both with current OS and iOS. Have to use Health Fit as intermediary to integrate Apple workouts with FinalSurge. Does not sync with NRC+, which I knew but still, come on folks, let's get better at integrating. Online tutorials are useless and few, no online basic instruction manual. Tech support responded about 1/3 of the times I contacted them and with repeatedly sending non-helpful screen shots or tutorials--could not or would not respond to my specific questions. After a lot of trial and error, finally got app to integrate my workouts. The data available, once integration is finally working, are exquisite. But instruction manual non-existent and tech support is among the worst I've ever encounteted. Integrating workouts into Outlook calendar uses old-fashioned technology but does work once you realize it's an old-fashioned technology that you need to use. So 5 stars for the workout data once integration is working but 0 stars support, thus 2 stars overall for use with Apple watch, iPhone and Apple workouts.
Great data, decent concept, bad interface
One gets the sense the developer got this out way too early, before it could be truly tested. The interface online is okay, but pales in comparison to the crispness and ease of Strava's. There is room for a lot of data, but one can’t really access that data in one easy-to-find place. Lots of clicking around to get all you want. Again, Strava does this better, though FS collects more data...it just doesn’t let the user use it. As for the app, the tiny gray font is just absolutely unreadable in a regular sized iPad. Can’t imagine a mini, or iPhone. Absolutely useless. How hard could it have been to allow users to increase font size, and make the font BLACK in the first place. Don’t think I can use this at all, at least until some serious upgrades are made.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
