Who is it aimed at?
Our top-level Gold Coaching Package is for cyclists who want the top level of contact with their coach, and a training plan that specifically addresses their needs and requirements in order to improve performance. The package comes with fitness testing and regular contact with your coach, so if you're looking for a hands-on coaching plan - so this plan is great for all levels of rider but is really suited for riders who want a lot of interaction and feedback from their coach.
What benefits will you see?
If you're a beginner cyclist, this plan is great for getting off the ground extremely quickly and seeing improvements in an efficient way - no messing around here! With the improved fitness and efficiency on the bike, more experienced rides could progress to bigger events, be they the big international challenge rides like the Etape or Marmotte, multi-day endurance events like the gruelling Haute Route events in the Alps or Pyrenees. If you’re a racer you’ll be competing in high level events looking to move up through the license categories with improved fitness and technical abilities and if it’s Time Trials you’re targeting you’ll be seeing regular PBs at your selected distances.
How does it work?
We’ll send you a detailed on-line questionnaire that helps us establish your sporting background, current level of riding and what your goals are. You’ll then have a one to one meeting with your coach who will help you devise a weekly plan aimed at achieving your goals, based on the amount of training time you have available. You’ll be given an initial performance benchmark test at one of our Cadence centres in order to determine your existing fitness levels, allowing us to build a structured, personalised on-line training programme which you can access and update 24 hours a day as you progress. You’ll then do a further test at least every three months to help track and maximise your performance gains.
Every week your coach will communicate via email to check on your progress and at least once per month you’ll get a personal review of your programme with your coach, either done face to face or online, whatever works best for you.
