I work with a wide range of athletes, from beginners looking to complete their first triathlon or open water swim through to seasoned aged group and ironman triathIetes aiming to qualify for World championships.
Training programmes are based around your goals, the time you have available to train, and your input and feedback. Whether you are looking for an annual, monthly or weekly training plan, or a 'one to one' personal training session, I can help. The first step would be to sit down and discuss your goals, the time you have available and your current training/fitness.
• One to One Swim, Bike, Run and Strength and Conditioning sessions: 60 mins sessions which focus on technique development, fitness enhancement and/or testing.
• Annual planning: designing a periodised training plan to guide you to reaching your goals. Your annual training programme is broken down into more manageable parts; mesocycles: base, pre-competition, competition and recovery training and microcycles: weekly training prescription presented as daily training sessions.
• Weekly coaching prescription: Daily training sessions sent to you each week in advance via email.
