Frequently asked questions
I'm quite new to cycling or running is it too early to think of coaching?
No, by committing to the basics which we can teach early on you will develop solid fundamentals. This will eliminate a lot of time you could be wasting with trial and error and setting bad practices. Practice doesn't make perfect: practice makes permanent.
Is there a minimum sign-up period for coaching?
We collect coaching payments on a monthly basis and that is the length of your commitment. This puts the focus on us to continue to provide the exact same service every month.
Will I be allocated a coach, can I request a coach and will my plan dictate who that is?
Do I need to be a racing cyclist or runner to make coaching effective?
Absolutely not. We know that everyone has different goals in life and their sport, it's the enjoyment and realisation of those goals which is important for us to deliver. For some that may be a goal of becoming a Profesional athlete, for others that may be to complete a future charity event or climbing a range of climbs you never have.
I don't have a 9 to 5 job, or I work shifts will coaching work for me?
Yes, we coach clients who do not work a standard 9 to 5. All the training programmes are customised to your life so we work around the time you have available and when, still maximising training time and recovery time.
Do i need to have powermeter to train with Elevation Coaching?
No, whilst we believe that power training is the optimum way to train, heart rate and training on perceived exertion still reaps great results. Our coaches are able to deliver in all platforms and are experienced with all. There is always an overlap of data, the more we have the more we can help you.
