COACHING

JuliaShawCycleCoaching offers coaching services to help you achieve your cycling goals, using tried and tested sessions that fit together to form a balanced training program, optimising your training time and achieving results.
Every successful cyclist knows, to get the best out of themselves requires training structure, planning and focus but also flexibility to work in harmony with their other life commitments – work, family or social. At JuliaShawCycle Coaching we will work with you to make this happen while also applying a scientific approach to training and monitoring fitness improvements.
As a relatively small coaching company we are able to provide a bespoke service, giving you much more individual support and friendly advice to ensure that week in week out your training is right for you, as you build towards your goals.
A coaching service where the small details can make a big difference to you as a rider.
