+ 2. Training
= Improved Performance
Once or several times a year depending on the calendar, I come to meet you so that we can share a training outing. I come on your training routes where we find a meeting place to take stock, better understand the exercises, deepen the understanding of my method.
This is when Sophie will teach you the basics of a sheathing session and will review your diet.
Nutrition being the keystone of health, we will take stock of your eating habits and how to change them towards healthy nutrition, thus allowing your body to be in the best possible condition for training.
Why did I become a coach?
Aside from traditional planning and preparation, I believe in mentoring the athlete. To have confidence in one's training program, and all it entails, is to have confidence in one's success. Training isn’t about suffering; it’s about productive methods of working without stress. Training allows you to perform well in races, not the other way around. To train well is to invest one’s profession. It’s the rider, not the trainer, who trains. The coach’s role is to better understand the rider so as to help him or her better reach their full potential.
I’m motivated by the desire to share my experience with others. My 14 years as a professional rider brought me great satisfaction but, more importantly, taught me how to continue to learn, evolve and challenge myself. Towards the end of my career, I discovered a way of training that gave me a taste for hard work. It wasn’t prescriptive, instead it motivated me to go out to train. Today, this is the method I want to share with you.
