Here are a number of questions we get asked frequently by athletes thinking about being coached by Kelly Cycle Coaching.
Does it matter what cycling club I belong to?
No, we coach riders from many different clubs and several different countries so it doesn’t matter which club you are affiliated with.
Do you coach masters cyclists?
Yes, definitely. In fact, the majority of our athletes are masters age which includes riders aged between 30 years old and 80 years old. Our oldest rider is currently 70 years old.
We don’t see age as an obstacle. The beauty of cycling is that it can be done for many years as it isn’t as harsh on the body as running (and other impact sports) can be.
Do I have to race in Kelly Cycle Coaching kit as I have my own sponsors/local bike shop that I support?
No, you can race in whatever kit you want to race in and we encourage you to support your sponsors/local bike shop. Our kit is not compulsory but many of our athletes wear it because it is very reasonably priced and they like it.
As a parent, what are my main responsbilities in respect to you coaching my child?
We encourage regular communication with us. In particular, we like to hear how your child is coping with their school work, family commitments and in particular any warning signs in respect to growth spurts, prolonged fatigue, onset of a cold, etc so we can adapt their workload accordingly.
Do you have physio’s, dieticians and sports doctors you recommend?
Yes, definitely. These are all listed on our website.
Can I be coached for challenge events and Gran Fondo’s as I don’t want to race?
Yes, most definitely. We have a group of cyclists training for Three Peaks Challenge, Cradle Mountain Challenge, Amy’s Gran Fondo, Robbie McEwen’s Gold Coast Challenge and L’etape in December. Our coaching is specifically targeted to improve fitness for these long events.
Can I target weight loss as well as fitness?
Yes, you certainly can. Weight gain is often a by-product of not exercising enough and eating too much. Our coaching program often results in athletes trimming down as they focus on eating well, watching their volume of food, changing their routine and exercising regularly.
If I want to buy Kelly Cycle Clothing how do I do this?
It’s easy. Just send us an email with your requested size and we will let you know what we have in stock.
Can you coach me specifically with power?
Yes, we coach many athletes who use power, (in conjunction with heartrate), to monitor your training efforts and improve the way you train.
How do I receive my program?
Kelly Cycle Coaching uses an online web-based coaching platform called Today’s Plan. This can be accessed via the internet or via The Today’s Plan App. This platform combines the latest technology to enable the coaches to deliver be best possible programming and analytics and offer you a more efficient and all-round better coaching experience.
Do you coach cyclists who compete in MTB, CX and Road?
Yes, there are many athletes we coach who are roadies but also race MTB/CX for fitness and fun. Conversely, we have many cyclists who prefer CX and mountain bike riding/racing and they use the road for their specific endurance/strength development.
If there is anything that you want to ask us just email us. No question is a silly question.
