Giant York Performance Cycling Coaching

Giant York Performance Cycle Coaching is about achieving your goals, so you simply get the most out of riding whatever you ride, whatever you race. Novice cyclist or internationally competitive triathlete…our cycling coach is experienced in developing bespoke, effective training program across a vast range of ability levels and types of goals.

All potential clients receive a free initial consultation with our York based cycling coach, Tom Ramsay.
This informal chat over coffee will help you identify your goals, and provide you with an insight into what to expect from our coaching services. This will also help establish which of our coaching packages is right for you.

Whichever package you choose, your training program will be tailored to you based on your goals, level, and the amount of time you are able to invest in training. For silver and gold coaching packages, your totally bespoke training program will also be underpinned by physiological fitness testing.

Giant York Coaching

All physiological fitness testing takes place in our WattBike performance suite, or at York St John University’s lab for V02 max testing. This testing allows us to precisely define and refine fitness levels, training zones, targets and progress.

Our service is as personalised as your training program, and we really encourage our clients to pop into Giant York for cycling chat and to come out riding with us. As Giant York’s Performance Specialist, Tom is invariably in store if he’s not out riding!

Whether you are embarking on your very first 50km ride, or struggling to improve a plateauing time-trial personal best or triathlon split, get in touch to arrange your free, no obligation consultation. Call us on 01904 622868 or email coaching@giant-york.co.uk  and we will get in touch with you.
