Do I need to be full time to become coached by Rowe & King?
Absolutely not. You just need to have a goal in the sport and some time each week that you can allocate to working towards that goal, anywhere from 3 to 30 hours per week.
Where do I log my training?
Training is prescribed via Training Peaks, which is an online portal, unique to you. Each rider will have their own username and password where they can log in and view their prescribed training, upload the training completed, and provide feedback.
What happens if something comes up and I cant train on any given day?
Life is not straightforward, and things will prevent you being able to complete every session exactly as prescribed. It may be a family commitment, or it may be extremely bad weather – whatever the case, a workable solution will be provided – you just need to let us know.
What type of goal do I need?
Your goal is personal to you and there is no right and wrong answer. It may be very simple in that you want to generally get fitter and stronger, or it may be that you want to increase your lactic threshold. Setting a goal is a fundamental part of being coached and we will work with you to establish a realistic goal that we can work towards, together.
What equipment do I need to become coached?
Absolute minimum is a bike! From there on, it is purely down to preference and budget. A heart rate monitor has its benefits, as does an indoor trainer (a Turbo), but they are not essential. We will work with what you have got.
How much does the service cost and how do I pay?
Rowe & King offer a number of services, details of which are on the Cycling Coaching Packages page on this website.
Which package is best for me?
This all depends on the level of day to day contact you want with your coach and how much analysis and support you require, i.e. nutritional guidance and strength and conditioning support. Feel free to contact us for an informal chat about the best package for you.
