How will I learn?
With this course we have brought the classroom to you and created an interactive online learning environment. These sessions are never pre-recorded and like in a classroom you will have a teacher and other students interacting with you live on set teaching dates. Allowing you to ask questions and gain skills all without leaving your desk. The course is delivered over a 9-week period, following on from this you will receive independent session plans to complete over the next 7-weeks.
After each delivered session you will take part in an online cycling coaching session which links theory to the practical application. In these sessions you will experience bespoke training that you will be able to participate in your own home*. Sessions are designed to expose you to new training methods and to push your cycling on to the next level.
*A turbo trainer or static exercise bike will be required to take part in the free 9-week sessions.
