Why do I need a coach?
A coach can help guide you through a sea of information. As coaches we setup a proper program based on you needs, time and goals. Instead of just workouts you are following a program that should provide results.
With a coach you get up each day knowing exactly what is needed for improvement. You will have target and ways to measure your success.
Do I need fancy technoloy or a power meter?
No! Training does not require anything fancy. We can do a lot with preceived effort, feel and speed. But, we cannot quantify or measure gains accurately without the use of technology.
So, if your not concerned with quantifying gains you will do just fine. If you decide to add some technology to your training we will help you each step of the way.
How much time do I need for training?
We can feed your a line of BS about you only need 1 hour per week but this would be false. Part of training is making some for of sacrifice. Endurance based training requires a certain level of commitment.
So, the best way to answer this question is to give you the ranges we tend to see based on the target.
1) 3-5 hours per week to see consistent gains. When time is limited we use specific protocols to get results. Most fitness level, shorter course event riders, group riders and Cat 5/Sprint Tri racers can see improvements.
2) 5-10 hours per week. This is a solid range of time to make gains every 8-12 weeks. Great for longer events, Cat 3-4 road racing, higher level fitness goals, Centureis and/or half-Ironman.
3) 8-12 hours per week. Gains will come a little quicker. Ideal for Cat 2-3 racers, half and full Ironman athletes, very high level fitness athletes, hard centuries with lots of elevation.
4) 10-20 hours per week. Do you have a job?:) You have plenty of time which is not the limiter of your performance
