Coaching

 

Coaching from RIDEANDRACE is more than just planning workouts, it is partnership - your goal becomes our goal. And together we will work at improving your wellbeing, getting you fit and achieve the goal at the right pace.  

 

How a coach helps you to improve and reach you goal.

Removes the guesswork - There are many components, lots of behind the scenes thinking and planning involved in how to prepare for your goal, and a coach does the thinking for you. Your total stress and health is considered.

Uses a methodical process - Provides a strategic and individualised approach, you’ll always know how each workout, week or phase fits into your program and serves to move you closer to your goals. The process extends to gear/equipment choices and setups, and unforeseen race/event scenarios.

Curates specific training - Guided by science and personal race experience, a detailed training program is created which includes specific workouts and training methods that are effective but keeps the process fun. 

Provides accountability, support and guidance - There is nothing is more effective than a coach. Knowing that someone is going to check if you missed or shortened a sessions will keep you accountable. By your side and work hand in hand with someone who believes in you and your goal can make all the difference.
