Our approach to training is about you making ongoing intelligent decisions with your valuable training time.
Although a prescribed training plan has its merits, they often have a limited long term impact.
Whilst it is true that some specialist athletes need a 1:1 approach to balance the demands of a full-on race season. For almost every other cycling ambition we believe that Group Coaching & Adaptive Coaching offers a more versatile, educational, fun and motivational way to train.
Coaching can be included as part of a Mapdec Membership, or as a separate commitment.
This 1 Month Plan is designed to get you prepared, set up, and ready to make good decisions about your health & fitness and join our regular group classes with maximum confidence.
• 2 x Cycling meetings with our coaching team. One will be a fitness assessment involving Oxygen monitoring, power and Heart Rate. One will be a coached workout to talk through the data live.
