ABOUT COLAB

CoLab Coaching specialises in training plans and coaching for competitive and fitness cyclists.

Every CoLab plan is customised to each rider’s goals, current level of fitness and available training time .

As well as becoming fitter and faster, a CoLab training programme will add variety, eliminate "garbage miles", provide adequate rest and recovery and ensure you are at your peak for key events.

CoLab athletes range in ability from local club racers to State and National Masters and Elte level competitors. CoLab has also prepared riders for charity rides and challenges such as Tour de Cure, Haute Route, Grand Fondo World Championships, KOM Taiwan, 3 Peaks and L’Etape Australia.

 

Why USE A COACH?

Every athlete is different. Just as they have individual goals, strengths and weaknesses, work, study and family commitments, they also have individual reasons for using a coach.

However, there are some common factors:
Knowledge - Athletes reach appoint where further improvement involves specialist know how.

Effectiveness - Time is valuable and athletes want to ensure the time they spend training is actually improving their performance.

Structure - A formal training programme provides structure and improves motivation and discipline.

Data Analysis - The development of power meters means that large amounts of data is being generated which must be interpreted correctly and fed back into the plan.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

CoLab training plans are delivered through Training Peaks software. Each CoLab athlete is provided with a Training Peaks account and their individual programme is uploaded to their calendar. 

Each session contains detailed notes and guidelines based on power or heart rate. A mix of on-road and indoor sessions can be prescribed according to the athlete's preferences. 

If using a smart trainer, indoor sessions can be uploaded directly from the Training Peaks calendar.

Activities are reviewed twice a week, with feedback provided via the calendar. Athletes also receive a weekly catch up phone call where issues can be discussed and adjustments made. 
  

MORE THAN JUST A PLAN

CoLab athletes know that a good result takes more than fitness.

CoLab assists athletes with goal setting, skill development, on and off the bike nutritional strategies, strength and conditioning, tapering and event preparation.
