Your Custom Cycling Plan by Richard Laidlow
Step By Step Guide To Our Training Plans
STEP 1 – The Athlete Profile
After signing up, you’ll receive a Athlete Profile via email. This Profile will gather complete information on you, your training and racing history as well as your goals. It will also provide a brief lifestyle audit (your working times, training times, equipment, training facilities, family commitments, etc.).
STEP 2 – Evaluation and Follow up
Armed with your information from the questionnaire, I’ll do a complete evaluation of your previous training and racing. I’ll determine your strengths and weaknesses as an Cyclist. I’ll evaluate your goals and determine how to best advance you towards them. If necessary, I’ll follow-up to gather more details or get clarification.
STEP 3 – Design of your New Cyclist Training Plan
Lastly, I’ll design and build a fully customized bike training program, just for you. Your program will gradually but progressively guide you towards your race(s). You’ll train optimally and avoid the pitfalls that come with following a generic program. You’ll become a better cyclist.
STEP 4 – Your New Training Plan Arrives
Once the design step is completed (usually taking 1-2 weeks), your new custom training plan will be available to you though a superb web based software program. Giving you the ability to upload data from your heart rate monitor, GPS, and Power meters (compatible with over 80 different devices). Allowing you to accurately record, monitor and analyse training and racing data as well as an online training diary allowing you to record all of your training fully.
