Fully Custom Training Programs and Consultation
Gold & Silver Coaching plans are one-to-one rider-coach relationships that revolve around a fully custom training program. The program is written specifically for you by your coach based on your goals, target events, and personal limiters and strengths determined by discussions, goal setting and a detailed review of your training history. The major difference between the Silver and Gold level is the amount of time and the way you and your coach consult with each other about your training on a daily, weekly and monthly basis - either via email, text, phone or in-person when possible. They are more the same than different.
