  • Please note that every answer is charged one ticket.

Questions about the functionality of 2PEAK and using the system: Our aim is to make 2PEAK so user friendly, that questions about the system shouldn't arise. We have also put detailed instructions in the footer under » Support. Please go there first to get acquainted with the 2PEAK system. If you prefer a personal answer, but also if you wnat to know why it is that your intervals are not reported in the interval scan (workout analysis), how trainingszones are defined, determined or used, or how you ideally set up your training schedule, we offer the choice to ask a system expert an online question.
Should any of these questions turn out to in fact be a system bug, we will of course credit you in case you had paid for.
