About & Credits


OTF Planner was created on May 19, 2021 to help Orangetheory athletes figure out, with a mix of base, push & all-out pace, what strategies they need to beat their benchmark PR.
It has been expanded since to incorporate different types of benchmarks, a quick way to see how the athletes did compare to their peers based on ’s anonymous benchmark surveys (Can you beat your peers?), as well as the to project when the benchmark will be based on historical data.

Can You Beat Your Peers?

Data in all Can You Beat Your Peers*? sections are collected by ’s voluntary benchmark anonymous survey.
When using the analysis, please keep in mind that the data is not representative for the entire OTF population.
Invalid data points/outliers have been removed to ensure data is clean.
When using Filters, data points without that specific filter will be dropped to ensure you’re only comparing against your true peers.
