Some clients arrive with specific goals in mind – The Etape du Tour, a tour in the Alps, racing or time-trialling – and others simply wish to improve their general enjoyment of cycling by improving their technique or riding faster and further. Bee spends time getting to know her clients and designs Personal Coaching Plans that will best deliver the required outcome for each individual.Lifestyle and any limitations on the amount of time available for training need to be carefully considered, alongside diet and health issues. Plans are put in place that will help clients to reach their goals progressively, fully trained and well prepared to meet their objectives in the best possible physical fitness.
Bee’s Coaching Plans are prepared only after an extensive initial consultation – almost always including a ride with the new client – and are then constantly monitored so clients build cumulatively to the required peak. In this way, any possibility of over-training is eliminated, and injuries from clients’ natural tendencies to push themselves too hard can be avoided.Effective coaching is based on a close personal relationship between the coach and the client. This is built through regular contact by email and phone, and by monitoring performance data uploaded using Training Peaks software.Provided that there is a will to succeed, anything is possible. With the right coaching, ordinary people with all the normal family and career commitments really can achieve the most extraordinary things.
