In addition to the cycling BTEC, Manchester Cycling Academy offer a series of coaching packages for all ages and abilities. These range from a free of charge product which is included in the BTEC course offer to fully bespoke packages created by world class academics and coaches who regularly work with elite performers.
Not all services are live as yet. As we move into Autumn 2020 we will make more services available, including extended coaching packages and details of how to access the services of the world class academics that provide support to the Academy.
But in the meantime, we will offer two coaching pacakges. Created by some of the UK’s leading Sports Scientists and Academics, these are bespoke packages that are truly unique to you. They are created from the ground up and begin with a free full physiological consultation and are ideal for youth and junior cyclists looking for a cycling coach.
The consultation will identify your strengths and weaknesses which will allow us to create a training package unique to you, nothing will be copied and pasted from other athletes’ training plans. If you want to contact us to discuss how our services can benefit you, click HERE.
Included in the Bespoke Elite plan are £40 worth of energy and hydration products, discounted access to Training Peaks software worth £17 each month, and a Manchester Cycling Academy T-Shirt worth £25.
The Bespoke Youth cyling coach plan provides you with a free Manchester Cycling Academy T-Shirt worth £25.
These plans are created from the ground up and begin with a free initial consultation which will identify your level of fitness and strengths and will also highlight any weaknesses you may have. Your training sessions will be built on the findings of this assessment; heart rate and power zones will be created and functional threshold power (FTP) identified.
This will be done by doing a Ramp Test or 3 and 12 Minute power tests. Due to Covid-19, this test will be done in your own home and may be adapted to utilise the equipment that you have. Ideally, you would have a direct drive turbo trainer or smart turbo with a power meter, but a heart rate chest strap is fine. If you have a Watt Bike then that would enable us to get the perfect data set from your test but this is not essential.
Once we have identified your power and heart rate zones we will use the expertise of our group of academics to assist you to identify your goals and create your training package. We will not cut and paste sessions – every element will be bespoke and created in consultation with you.
