One To One Coaching
The "Real Deal" - This is proper one to one coaching, not, as some coaches produce, a monthly "template" or just a print-off from a computer, but a "tailor made", day to day, week by week, prescribed training for you! Dave also doesn't go in for the now "normal" coaches practice of "Gold, Silver and Bronze One to One Training" or in some cases "SIX variations on the One to One Coaching!" What on earth is that all about ?.. "ONE TO ONE COACHING" is simply that ... "ONE TO ONE" Dave charges one fee to all his clients for his One to One Coaching and gives each of his athletes the same "top class" service.. and that hasn't changed for years... One to One Coaching is exactly what it says , no more, no less..... You'll find the phrase "KEEP IT SIMPLE!" being used a lot in Dave's coaching philosphy
There will be daily schedules from Dave to suit your own life style and a proper structure to the year ahead. From winter "base" training, pre season sessions, gym work-outs etc. In season training includes peaks and tapers for your major targets throughout the year.
Your personal schedules will arrive every week on time, and all you have to do is follow the prescribed sessions and give Dave your feedback once a week. Dave is always available to iron out any problems you have with your schedules or any other queries you may have. Dave is far more than a coach, he is a great "mentor".
Dave also realises that each athlete he coaches is an individual and is treated as such. He keeps his one to one coaching to a minimum of riders, so that he can give each one individual attention. Dave knows the pitfalls of "overtraining", having been there himself, and is careful to avoid this. Hence the recovery days and the "Adaptation Weeks". He also has to have a LOT of communication with his athletes and this is done by telephone (preferably) or email.
Each and every athlete knows that, should they have any problems, Dave is "JUST A TELEPHONE CALL AWAY" at any time of the day or any day of the week. Dave will either be there, or he will get back to that athlete on the same day, WITHOUT FAIL !! That's a given with Dave Lloyd Complete Coaching. Again, unlike other coaches there are no constaints on the time you must only email or telephone etc. etc.
After the initial consultation, Dave gives each athlete a three month "getting to know you trial" both for him and the athlete. After this time the athlete can come back for a Ramp test to see if progress has been made and a talk to Dave to see if all is well. It's at this time that the athlete can judge whether to carry on with the training, or leave to choose another coach, with no hard feelings on both sides.. This has happened only twice in Dave's coaching career and each time it was Dave who suggested the athlete leave for another coach rather than the other way round!!
Dave has the experience and is the complete professional at all times with all his athletes. Always on hand and always giving his usual 100% commitment.
This is real one to one coaching!

|Consultation & Analysis Session||£295|
|4 Hour Consultation + Ramp + Supervised Bike Ride with Dave||£395|
This test is done using state of the art computer software, written by Malcolm Firth, on a Computrainer. You will leave with the following information :
- Maximum Heart Rate
- Maximum 1 Minute Power Output
- Power/ Weight Ratio
- VO2 Max
- WCPP Fitness Index
- WCPP 6 Heart Rate Training Zones
We can also offer state of the art Video Analysis which enables yourself and Dave to closely monitor your cycling technique, giving you more understanding of any changes that may be needed to improve your performance.
|Individual Ramp Test||£125|
This can be done using your own bike on the Computrainer, or on Dave’s Frame Fit Jig. Whether it’s a road, track or time trial bike, you will get a full scale drawing of the frame with the guarantee of the "Perfect Fit". Don't forget, also, that Dave actually hand built his own frames for 13 years, and has studied positions all his cycling life, so you don't get much more experienced than that!! You can take this full sized drawing to any frame builder you wish in order for them to build you your "perfect frame"!
Note: One of the most important aspects of your cycling is your position on your bike. Whether for Road, Time Trial, Track, Sportive or Triathlon, your position can affect your efficiency, comfort and consequently your performance. Dave has been studying riding positions for over 40 years. In 2002 he was astounded when he went to the National 25 Mile Time Trial Championships to write an article on time trial positions for 'Cycling Weekly' to see just how many riders had awful positions on their bikes.
With the use of the computrainer, the frame fit jig and a digital camera and video, Dave can produce a full size drawing of your 'perfect fit' frame.
THE WEEK-END WORKS FROM DAVE
Dave now has a brand new Service to add to his portfolio ... Dave has decided to offer riders the chance to have a Ramp Test, a Consultation, a Frame Fit and two rides on Saturday and Sunday with the man himself...
The Ramp Test and Consultation will give you stacks of information about your overall fitness, the Bike Fit will give you your ideal frame and a full sized one to one drawing of your "ideal frame" to get built by whoever.
The two rides will be a short easy ride on Saturday to assess your riding style and position etc.etc. and the Sunday ride can be anything up to 6-7 hours in the Welsh hills or whatever you want... This will be as hard or as easy as you like with lots of skills drills worked into the time out on the bike.. Also a full assessment of your riding after the Sunday ride..
WHAT A DREAM WEEKEND FOR ANY ASPIRING CYCLIST.... YOU WILL LEARN SO MUCH !!
