Paul Smeulders, Ph.D., P.Eng.

Each workout in my plans has a complete power vs. time profile that can be ridden in ErgVideo's completely free mode. Moreover, ErgVideo will automatically present 1 to several different video-based sessions that follow similar power profile, train the same physical attributes, and yield the same TrainingPeaks metrics like Tss, IF, NP etc. With an ErgVideo subscription, you choose from any of the presented "Training Objective Equivalents" to ride your workout with a synchronized ErgVideo.


I'm certified under the Canadian NCCP program for road, mountain and track. I've more than 39 years of cycling experience, many of which included road racing and coaching. I enjoy most the in-person teaching/instructional aspect of coaching, which I still pursue at Velocious Cycling Adventures camps abroad. I no longer do one-on-one-style coaching, opting rather to provide plans that you can follow and administer yourself with available tech.
I'm the developer of ErgVideo, the first Ergometer-based video training product on the market. It allows you to complete your power-based training without needing to constantly watch a clock or power numbers as you ride. You rely on your smart trainer to set the power, and the videos immerse you in the excitement of a ride "outside". Our always-growing library of over 118 titles encompasses mountain climbs, races, and specific training sessions. ErgVideo's unique features allow each video to be customized, and we use this feature to map often several video choices to your daily workouts offered in these plans.

I'm the everything-man at ErgVideo Inc., from designer to developer, coder, tester, to support-guy, web designer, graphics designer, videographer, video editor, to of course, training plan designer. I've a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering with several years of academic and industry experience, and expertise in digital signal processing, computer architecture, optical communications protocols and optical systems architecture.
