April 25, 2024

Three-time Ironman 70.3 race champion joins Humango’s endurance roster which includes Matt Hanson and UTC-ButcherBox Cycling p/b LOOK; 2023 70.3 World Championship runner-up to introduce new virtual training club to users

Boulder, CO (April 25, 2024)/ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – Humango™, a revolutionary training platform integrating AI-powered technology, is excited to announce a partnership with professional triathlete Frederic Funk, a nine-time race winner and three-time Ironman 70.3 race champion. Funk is coming off his best race season of his young career, which saw him break the tape at Challenge races in Walchsee, Austria, and Samarkand, Uzbekistan, and Ironman 70.3 Zell am See in Austria. One week prior to his win in Zell am See, Funk placed second overall at the 2023 Ironman 70.3 World Championship in Lahti, Finland with a time of 3:33:25, just 1:04 behind fellow German Rico Bogen. Funk’s 70.3 bike split of 1:55:13 was the fastest of any race participant.

Funk joins the Humango lineup just days after his 2024 race debut, which saw him place ninth overall at the PRO T100 in Singapore (3:31:24). Funk’s training regimen, which has seen him become one of the world’s elite endurance athletes, will be part of a new virtual training club on Humango called “What the Funk”. The platform allows for endurance and fitness enthusiasts to follow Funk’s training insight, tips, and race advice to meet their race day and health and wellness goals, while under the leadership and guidance of one of the triathlon’s elite stars. All new users will receive a 37-day free trial with the What the Funk virtual training club.

“I‘m proud of my new partnership with Humango. The AI is a great addition and tool for my training program and helps me analyze my sessions even better,” said Funk. “I just opened my virtual training club called “What the Funk“, where users can connect with me and each other, join group sessions, ask questions, and check out my favorite training sessions. I‘m very excited for this journey with Humango and my community.”

The 26 year-old Funk becomes the latest addition to the growing Humango roster which features Matt Hanson (Professional triathlete and coach), Pav Bryan (Master Cycling Coach), Raeleigh Harris (Head Coach), and Lance Watson (Advisor and Olympics Coach). Humango’s partnership with Funk is the latest for the brand, which has recently aligned with From The Ground Up, a groundbreaking documentary series that chronicles the journeys of four novice athletes, Challenge Family, a leading global triathlon festival race series and UTC-ButcherBox Cycling p/b LOOK, one of the strongest domestic team in the US. Humango also serves as the training technology of the Escape From Alcatraz.

Whether a user is training for a race, or seeking to achieve a targeted fitness goal, Humango’s fully-optimized training plans, under the guidance of the app’s virtual training assistant Hugo, allows for confident training, while adding flexibility to accommodate life’s disruptions such as travel, work commitments, injury and more. Many triathlon coaches are also using Humango to regulate their training schedules for their clients.
