OUR APPROACH TO COACHING
APB analyse run form, bike skills and swim technique on an ongoing basis. This can be in person or via video link. We have recently teamed up with `effortless swimming` to help athletes gain online support for their swim technique and Bioracer to help maximise aerodynamics and postural changes on the bike.
APB provide a progressive strength program that is tailored to your race schedule and individual needs. We aim to address imbalances, posture and alignment early on to help prevent injury. This can be done at home or in the gym depending on the facilities available to you.
We work closely with our athletes to provide them with the knowledge to fuel their bodies around training and more specifically around the demands of racing.
APB are flexible on contact time and means, whether that be through face-face / email / phone call/ Skype or WhatsApp. Whichever is best for you and fits around your schedule.
APB works with a trusted network of physiotherapists and sports massage therapists who we can call on to help you avoid injury or manage existing injuries. Our aim is to help you continue training in a safe and sustainable way.
Our workouts are tailored around your background, life commitments, typical weekly schedule and your personalised race calendar. Programs are sent on a weekly / bi-weekly basis via Training Peaks or via a shared document in the cloud.
