Bespoke one to one Coaching

To ensure that any rider becomes the best they can be requires commitment from both rider and coach.  Such commitment is very time consuming for both and not something that can be achieved by shortcuts.  To plan, put in place and deliver a bespoke training programme is not something that can be force fit into some kind of pre-defined package, which limits interaction and review in any way.  The workflow and process will be the same for all, however, specifics, content and delivery are unique to every rider.

 

The key steps of the workflow are:

  • Identify and define goals and objectives.

  • Physiological testing if/as appropriate.

  • Build individual physiological model.

  • Identify areas of strength and weakness.

  • Structure long term programme.

  • Training programme built to maximise adaptation.

  • In depth data analysis to fully understand progress and future requirements.
     

Due to the time involved, the number of riders that can be coached on this basis is strictly limited.
