Here at veloqi we understand that you are not just a cyclist. You have family and work commitments, highs and lows, likes and dislikes, and possibly previous injuries. You are unique!
"For me personalised coaching means taking into account your lifestyle, previous training experience, fitness levels, external stresses, motivations, and for women, hormonal changes."

Before your consultation your coach will ask you to complete athlete profile and lifestyle forms. You will then have a one to one, in depth, face to face, telephone or video consultation with you to really get to know you and your short and long term goals.
This 60 minute Level Up one to one consultation with a qualified coach is ideal if you want to take your cycling to the next level, are not sure structured training is for you and just looking for advice on how your could improve your cycling. This maybe for a self set target, to ride 3000 miles in a year for example, or an event or challenge. Get advice on the best way to spend your precious time around your commitments and social life, the benefits of different on and off the bike nutrition and workouts and the importance of rest and recovery.
The 90 minute Level Up option is ideal if you are an experienced or self motivated rider, who has ambitious cycling goals, such as an endurance challenge or event or competitive events, and would like to learn more about applying training theory in order to achieve your goals. With your coach you will identify your strengths and weaknesses in relation to the demands of your event or race, and create a clear framework from which you can design a plan for smashing your goals.
Both options include a review of your current training routine, analysis of your current fitness, event/challenge demand analysis, a lifestyle audit, goal setting workshop to ensure you have set SMART goals for the next 12 months. Together with your coach you will set targets and milestones for the next three months. Your coach will also contact you for a review halfway, six weeks after your initial consultation.
Strength & Conditioning
What you do off the bike is also important to your long term health, injury prevention and mental health. For many cyclists, cycling is their only form or exercise, but it is a low impact sport and therefore does little to help improve bone density, something that's very important as we age, especially women who have a higher risk of Osteoporosis. Including weight bearing exercises in our weekly routine, to strengthen bones, as well as our ligaments, tendons and supporting muscles, helps reduce the risk of injury, now and as we get older. Using my experience of being a full time dancer in my youth, years of training for various sports including triathlons, courses with the YMCA and studies for my degree, I have designed a series of strength and conditioning programmes and classes, for a range of abilities, including sport specific exercises that will improve performance on the bike, as well as general and long term health. Strength and conditioning sessions should be scheduled into your weekly programme as I feel it is essential for progression as an athlete. You will be given access to these plans for three months as part of this service.
