Take your training and racing to the next level with a dedicated coach! We look after a real range of riders, both in terms of experience and in terms of focus. We have riders mixing it in top level amateur road racing, riders preparing for insane gravel competitions and even riders focusing purely on E-racing.
Regardless of their situation, all of them know the value of having a coach to help them keep the balance of their training and educate them in how to look after themselves.
There are some fantastic training platforms out there, but there are a number of things a training platform can’t help with. For instance, they’re not great at teaching riders WHY they are doing a particular workout, what to do when things don’t go to plan and how to approach specific events. This is where having dedicated coach support can really make the difference.
Benefit from fully tailored training plans designed to work with rather than in spite of your lifestyle and on-going coach supervision to help you manage things when they get complicated. To help streamline this process and ensure you have access to your plan at all times, we manage our athletes’ training via Training Peaks, a well established online platform that can be set to auto-sync with all the major training watches and devices.
Build towards a specific event, a full season of racing or simply focus on getting fitter. Regardless of your goals, we always design a training plan with recovery at the centre, so you can concentrate on banking consistent high quality training volume and chip away at accruing fatigue.
Alongside a bespoke conditioning plan, all our riders also receive tailored strength & conditioning plans to help them maintain muscular balance, improve mobility and stay clear of those silly avoidable niggles.
With regular coach communication in the form of a monthly catch-up video call or face-to-face meeting, further ad hoc calls when necessary and unlimited email/WhatsApp communication, our riders are never without support.
THE SQUAD SESSIONS
Like our triathletes, our riders all benefit from weekly online Squad Sessions in the form of a squad strength & conditioning workshop and coached cycling sessions, which are very easy to join.
These weekly sessions are a great chance to reinforce good habits, teach key skills and provide context specific advice as train. It is certainly the case that the athletes who regularly join these sessions, enjoy the most rapid progression.
There are some really cool benefits that come as part of being a RIAK coached rider, which include:
~ a RIAK cycling jersey;
~ x2 online Dynamic Screenings per season to assess the athlete’s inherent strength, muscular balance and mobility before building their bespoke strength plan;
~ x4 online Full Spectrum Cycling Performance Testing sessions to set benchmarks, assess the athlete’s characteristics as a cyclist and establish how they are developing;
~ x3 nutrition focused seminars from our training partners and expert nutrition consultants, Total Endurance Nutrition;
~ access to exclusive training resources, such as our library of training articles, Cycle Seminars and other training resources;
~ each member also becomes part of the RIAK Fitness race team enabling them to race on our behalf in RIAK colours; and
~ invitations to all squad social events.
All of the above is available for £110pm, with 2-months’ notice should the athlete wish to roll off.
Our coached athletes benefit from a referral scheme, whereby if they introduce a friend and they sign up to Tri Squad Membership or Cycling Coaching, both will receive 25% off their coaching fee for 3-months!
