Squad Membership is ideal for those requiring on-going coach support and have a real desire to learn. To be a RIAK Squad Member, it does not matter what your current fitness or experience level is, we love working with a spectrum of athletes. The only thing that really matters to us is that you are keen not only to build your fitness and speed but to develop your training knowledge. Ultimately, our goal is to give you the tools so you can make sensible training decisions, take responsibility for your own progression and learn how to train consistently, which is always the main driver for progression.
All Squad Members benefit from a fully tailored plan and on-going coach supervision with the focus being on developing them as athletes over multiple seasons.
Your coach will prescribe each of your swim, bike, run and strength sessions and work with you to ensure they are tailored to your requirements and scheduled according to how your life works in reality.
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 athletes are never without support.
THE SQUAD SESSIONS
One of the major benefits of being a Squad Member is access to exclusive weekly live coached online Squad Sessions. These are in the form of a Strength & Conditioning Workshop on a Tuesday and an online cycling session on a Wednesday. We see these sessions as a vital opportunity to coach Squad Members and disseminate knowledge that will help take them to the next level. They’re also a fantastic opportunity for our athletes to ask questions and grab a quick chat with a coach if needed.
There are some really cool benefits that come as part of the Squad Membership, which include:
~ 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;
~ x2 Video Swim Assessments to analyse and track the athlete’s swim stroke development and fitness;
~ x3 nutrition focused seminars from our training partners and expert nutrition consultants, Total Endurance Nutrition;
~ access to exclusive training resources, such as our Audio Swims for open water training and entire library of Cycle Seminars;
~ 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 £120pm, with 2-months’ notice should the athlete wish to roll off.
We only have a very limited number of spaces left on the squad. To register your interest, please use the ‘Get In Touch’ options below, which include the option to arrange your free 15-minute coach consultation to assess your options.
