THB Coaching is power based. Our coaches use the RiderMetrics software to monitor and review:

> training and racing data,
> threshold powerCP and W' (Critical power and Anaerobic Energy)
> short interval power,
> intensity of your efforts
> accumulated fatigue levels
> training and racing performance
to ensure you get the most out of every session.

Programs are delivered from the coach to athlete through the RiderMetrics software.  Not only that, the anticipated training load is incorporated into the future training calendar.  Using the predicted 6 week, 1 week and training balance curves, we are able to better manage a training program so that you peak for your main races.  Use of the predictive 6 week training load allows us to precisely manage additional training volume so as to induce a training effect without overtaxing the athlete.  We strive not to go on feel alone but incorporate analysis of the athletes actual physiological response in managing training load and rest.

How to get started: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and tell us that you’re interested in being coached. We will incorporate your proposed race schedule, work, family or study commitments and any racing, group rides, other rides with friends as much as possible.

Options for coaching programs You can choose the level of coaching that suits your individual needs.

Option 1 – fully remote program including power analysis and feedback You will receive a personalised training program based on your training and racing goals.  As training data is gathered via your power meter it will be analysed and feedback provided. We also regularly review training load to ensure fatigue is within realistic limits. Everybody reacts differently to training and this is incorporated into your training plan once your adaptations are determined.

Option 2 – individual program incorporating group sessions.  Melbourne based cyclists benefit greatly from the joint sessions we run several times a week.  The motivation that comes from training regularly with a group of similarly focussed athletes is of great benefit.  We usually finish a session at a local cafe, carefully selected for its quality of coffee.

Option 3 – individual program plus one-on-one coaching In addition to an individualised program, we  also offer one-on-one sessions with our team.  This may be on the road or track as required.

Costs: We have a competitive tiered pricing structure.  Please This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for program prices.
