COACHING

HELPING ATHLETES BEYOND THEIR GOALS.

 

At Fitness Locker we recognise that athletes have unique requirements to each other and our range of coaching formats are designed to optimise the athletes' needs. Whilst we continue to offer the traditional form of the detailed week by week coaching, we have also developed our more popular consultative and mentoring approaches which suit the more experienced athletes requiring input at particular stages of their training only and athletes requiring more flexibility with their busy lives.

"Successful endurance training is an intuitive and personalised approach that respects the fundamental laws of exercise physiology while allowing for plenty of flexibility." Mark Sisson, Primal Endurance

 

Consultations

Our ultimate goal is to up-skill our own athletes to make better intuitive decisions regarding their own training. We provide all the required information and tools, you apply it to best suit your schedule around family, work & other commitments. Either your training has stagnated, you are targeting a specific event, you require guidance on particular elements of your training or simply juggle multiple other commitments, then a one-off consultation is ideal for you. 

 

A consultation could be anywhere between a minimum of 30 minutes to 2 hours, depending on your requirements. This is a unique opportunity to draw on our wealth of knowledge and experience. 

The topics covered could be any of the following:

  • general training

  • a training plan for a particular goal including macro & micro training cycles, training blocks & key sessions

  • tapering for a primary goal/event

  • heat, cold, and altitude acclimation 

  • post-race and training reviews

  • recovery and adaptation principles

  • wholefood plant-based sports nutrition guidelines

  • analyses of heart rate variability data with input on improving health and fitness parameters

 

Following the initial consultation, you then have the following options:

  • pay a Monthly Retainer (this can be for just coaching or be packaged with sports nutrition coaching)

  • request additional consultations

  • join the Multisport Club (includes group training & product discounts)

Mentoring

Having worked closely with other coaches and professional athletes, we have identified a much-needed opportunity to offer a network of support and objective opinion to coaches and athletes that may require it. When requested, these relationships remain discreet and confidential.
