Why do you need Coaching?
Cycling is like other sports that needs the expert to instruct and plan the training workouts for better performance. Every sports needs different skills and basic fundamentals. To set your basic fundamental correctly, will lead you to sustainable and long-term improvement. Riding is not just to be able to “Ride” but having someone to coach you will help you become a “Good” rider. Coaching is the answer for many cyclists that have been riding for a while but the improvement is not progressing. The reason is because the training plan is not suitable for them. With the advanced technology in sports science, coach can analyse your body condition and be able to design the training programs that are systematic, measurable and suitable for each individual cyclist
I believe that many of you want to improve your performance to the max, and it is a pity that I have seen many high potential cyclists planing their workouts poorly; some overtrained and some are under. Some cyclists take an easy way by copying workout plans from the internet, which has nothing to do about analysing your body condition or even guarantee the results. Coaching is not only about physical training, but also lifts up your state of mind in cycling. Coach will motivate you and get you ready for the race physically and mentally. Winners in the race are not always the strongest, but they’ve got the strongest head and never give up.
How quickly do I start to improve?
I don’t expect everyone to train that hard to finish Tour de France, because everyone has their own personal life. My previous athlete “Matt Langworthy” is a Junior Champion who trains only 6 hrs per week! Training plans that I design for everyone is different, depending on their lifestyle and goals. At the very beginning, I will evaluate each person’s strengths and weaknesses, then will customise workouts for each one. Every cyclists have different level of skills, some are sprinters, climbers, flat road, time trial, or triathlete. Normally my training programs average at 1-2 hours per day, 3-5 days per week. If you can complete 80-90% for 3 months, you will see the improvement significantly.
Is there any shortcut to improve more quickly?
The answer is “no”, the human body needs a certain time to develop and improve. You cannot expect short term results from the training, that’s why the workouts I design are hard and easy in some weeks to get your body get used to the training routine and be able to develop the right muscles. When you ride more hours than your friends, it doesn’t mean that you will improve faster. On the other hand, if you train too much or race too often, your body will not be able cope with the tiredness and fatigue, then your performance will drop badly. You will not enjoy your riding anymore
How to choose your coaching programs?
