What sports are available?
i don't race
Not every athlete has the interest to race or compete in an event. Some of our athletes follow training plans to live a healthier lifestyle and to increase their overall fitness. We provide coaching for people looking to start an exercise plan that is easy to follow and is adjusted to fit within your current lifestyle.

Do i need a heartrate monitor or powermeter?
Our coaches have years of experience coaching with power meters, Heartrate monitors and other tools. However, if you don’t have access to these tools it is still possible for our coaches to build a training program.
We do recommend these training tools, as it helps our coaches better understand you and analyze your workouts. This also allows our coaches to provide the most specific workouts into your training plan.
If you don’t have any training tools and looking to buy, contact one of our coaches and we can help you choose the best training tool suited to you. We have a range of power meters available to our athletes at a discounted price, as well as access to many other training tools.
how does online training work?
Once you have completed our coaching questionnaire, one of our coaches will contact you to book an online meeting. Our coach will then prepare you online training peaks account and begin on your annual training plan. You will receive the first 4 weeks training in training peaks and your program will be updated every 3 weeks (one week in advance).
Once your training plan is ready and you start uploading workouts, your coach will analyze training sessions daily. This analysis will either be discussed via your chosen contact tool or inside the day’s workout comments in trainingpeaks. This will be discussed with the athlete during the initial signup.
Our coaching provides unlimited contact time to help you improve your performance. This allows you to call or contact your coach in regards to future training, current training, events, goals, and race strategy.
