Pro Coaching Programme
It's better to be dishing
out the pain
than having it dished out to you...
The flamme rouge Pro Coaching Programme, at just £20 per four week cycle, is a step up from our Elite Coaching Programme.
Who's it for...?
If you are confident in following a bespoke programme, written specifically for you, to secure the outcome of your choice, but would like the option of monthly coach email interaction, to keep you on track, monitor progress and tweak as necessary, then this is the service for you.
You don't need a heart rate monitor or power meter for any of the sessions within this programme. But if you have either of them, there are specific target zones and parameters within the sessions, for which you can aim.
What do I get?
Once you have your personalised programme (see below), you ride each session to the best of your ability.
At the end of each month you zip up your power files and email them to me. This is normally the last Sunday of the month.
Within a couple of working days, I'll get an analysis back to you that gives you the information on your current performance, how it compares to your past performance, where we are going, when we should get there and more importantly, identify areas of "under developed strengths" that we can work on to help you improve as a rider.
Unless you change your objective, it's very rarely necessary to change any of our programmes mid-term. All our programmes are 8-12 weeks long, so we normally know where we are going before we start out. But things change, so never say never...
All correspondence is by email. Being a global team, across many timezones, phone support, if I was ever near one, is just not possible.
Please note this level of support can only work if you have power information for all (or at least the vast majority) of your rides. We can't analyse heart rate and cadence. Power is where it's at.

How It Works...
Once you've selected your programme, we'll send you a short questionnaire to complete and return to us. We ask for your min/max heart rate, and/or your VO2max or FTP wattages if you know them.
We want to know about your riding environment, terrain and other options, to help us build a holistic picture of your current activity. There's also a few other physiological questions about height, weight, age, etc.
We'll also ask for more in depth information regarding your training history, your current fitness levels, available weekly training time and for three key objectives you'd like to target or pursue. Remember, your targets and objectives should be SMART!
In line with your responses, we will personalise the programme's drills and sessions with perceived exertion levels, heart rate zones, power zones and cadence guidelines.
Your programme will be designed to make best use your available training time to close the gap between where you are now and where you want to be; within the obvious limits of human adaptability!
You review the draft, we discuss any thoughts you might have, make changes if necessary, or crack on and everyone's happy!
Start to finish process takes around three to five days.
