The Process

  • An initial appointment will provide the opportunity to discuss your goals, assess current or identify any possible future injuries, as well as a training and racing plan.
  • Your coach will then develop a program that includes daily (or as determined) personalised sessions tailored specifically for you and your unique requirements.
  • To achieve a successful athlete-coaching relationship, participating athletes are recommended to maintain regular communication regarding training sessions via our online program platform and/or via email, as well as through an in-clinic review every 1-2 months.
