ROAD CYCLING COACHING
Road riding is a fantastic way to develop a healthy active lifestyle. Of course, I'm super biased as cycling is my favourite sport. If you have the cycling bug, want to learn to ride or build your cycling fitness, you have definitely come to the right place.
After you read the information below, feel free to book a FREE 30-MIN CONSULT to discuss more on how I can get you rolling.
Here's what I offer:
- beginner to intermediate cycling coaching
- non-competitive coaching
- coaching for cycling events such as charity rides, Golden Triangle, Gran Fondos, and other long distance rides.
- single lessons
- progression programs
- training programs
Private lessons are great for individuals who desire 1-on-1 instruction. Each lesson is 60 minutes with options to extend to 1.5 or 2 hour lessons (additional fees apply).
Semi-private lessons are great for adults who learn well with a partner or friend. It's also more social and great for people who can learn by watching others.
Each lesson is 60 minutes with options to extend to 1.5 or 2 hour lessons (additional fees apply).
There is a maximum of two adults required for semi-private coaching.
This program consists of 600+ minutes of coaching. It is divided up into 10 x 60 minute lessons. Depending on the goals, skills, and fitness levels of the clients, we can double up the sessions to make for larger lessons.
The program is available for both privates and semi-privates.
Within the program, I have 3 major areas of concentration. Clients who want semi-private lessons must all have the same concentration.
LEARN TO ROAD RIDE: This is a 10=week program for beginners only. Clients need NO prior experience and do not need to have a high fitness level. Both fitness and skill is built during this program.
INCREASE CYCLING FITNESS: This program is most excellent for people looking to increase their cycling fitness level. Whether you just want to get faster for personal pleasure or participate in a cycling event (non-competitive), this is an excellent program to increase your fitness.
INCREASE SKILL LEVEL: This is suitable for clients who already have road cycling experience but maybe have weak areas, such as climbing, cornering, or descending with confidence. Lessons are catered more around these weak areas and practiced until the skill level has increased and the cyclist gains more confidence.
Training programs are a great way to stay motivated to achieve a certain goal. You can follow them on your own or hire me in combination with private lessons or progression coaching plan. I develop personalized training programs to match the goal of the client. Fees start at $100, and depending on how much detail and length of the program the client wants, will depend on how long it takes me to designed the program and the final cost.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING SESSIONS
What I teach during a session will depend a great deal on what the participant(s) already knows how to do. With that said, the first session will always begin with an assessment of skills and fitness in order to identity strengths and weaknesses.
