The Sufferlings: An Homage

Here at Sufferfest Studios, we love email from you guys. Part of it is because we just like getting mail – it make us feel good – and part of it is because Sufferfest customers are a unique breed…the kind who tell us how much we’re hated, despised and reviled in that loving, kind, all embracing kind of way that only Sufferfesters can. Today, we got this email and had to share it with you. It comes from emma0897 and…cripe, it made us s&!t scared of our own freaking videos! Here it is – an….homage, shall we say? “I have

Race organiser? Need cycling video prizes?

If you’re a race organiser (road, ‘cross or mountain) and need some prizes for your podium, The Sufferfest is here to help. We’ll provide a copy of one of our videos for your 3rd place finishers. Why not the winner? Simple. Because he or she is already pretty fast. But it’s clear that the 3rd place finisher needs to train a little bit harder. So that’s where we come in. A few Sufferfest sessions and that also-ran will be striking fear into the hearts of former 1st place finishers. What do you need to do? Just drop me an email

We interview ourselves about our cycling training videos.

Time for me to interview myself for your enlightenment. Me (interviewing me): How do you keep your prices so low? I, mean, all those other cycling DVDs are 30 bucks and yours are only 10.99. Steal! Me (being interviewed): I never bought a cycling DVD *because* they cost 30 bucks. I just thought that was too much money. We always thought that we would pay about what we would pay for a good music CD…which would be about 11 bucks. So that’s a start. Second, here at Sufferfest Studios we are a one man show. So we’re not really a

Sponsoring our first team!

Now this is really fun. I already work for the bank, OCBC, that funds the them (so proud of that!), but now The Sufferfest is now an official sponsor of the OCBC-Singapore National Cycling team. You can check them out here. I really, really admire these young guys. They’re here, in one of the smallest countries in the world, riding out of their skins, with the dream of competing at the highest level. It’s just so impressive and inspiring. I’m really glad I can help them in a small way – a big thanks to Daniel Loy over at Passi:one

The Making of Angels

Angels has been around in my head for a long time. I’d wanted to do a climbing video for over a year, but it never seemed to come together the way I wanted it to. It’s an art, you know. The workouts for Downward Spiral and Revolver came together so much easier with the music and video I had available. And not to do those productions any discredit, but climbing agony is different than flatland agony…and I never found what I needed to find in order to create a real climbing video that fit with the Sufferfest ethos of blinding

Which Sufferfest?

Thinking about buying your first Sufferfest, but not sure which one is for you? First of all, congratulations for refusing to accept boring trainer workouts, bad music and lame video. And good for you that you want to drive yourself into the ground racing against the pros. Well done. Let’s see….where to start if you’re not sure which to buy? You are: Someone who has never done a Sufferfest, aren’t super-fit and isn’t ready for intervals at nearly maximum effort. Start with: Angels. The efforts aren’t as intense as in most of the other videos, and the durations are short
