"The sessions Tim designs are progressive, specific and tailored to what I need. Over the past two seasons I have really benefitted from Tim’s coaching and Wattbike testing . At National level you can’t afford to compromise your training – if you are looking for coaching that works brilliantly at any level then choose BlackCat!".

"My brief to Tim Ramsden at blackcatcyclecoaching.com was to devise a training schedule to get me fit for the Etape over 10 weeks…… somewhere near the end of the ten weeks of coaching I realised that my initial goal of simply finishing the Etape had changed into finishing it in a respectable fashion! The daily plans were supplemented by Skype video calls and email contact – Tim really motivated me and his sessions fitted brilliantly around my working and family life!"

How does it work?

ECoaching is one-to-one coaching over the internet.  Essentially it is like having a personal coach to direct your training on a daily basis. The difference is that you don't have to travel miles to see the coach or pay travelling expenses for him or her to come to you. Each week of daily training is planned for you individually and we communicate by email weekly to review progress and plan next steps. Every rider starts by filling in a questionnaire which gives me some of the information I need to start planning a programme. From there I contact you by email and we map out a Season Plan for your target events. Initial and regular progress testing is built in to the programme. There is no set-up fee for this package and no monthly contract - you pay only for the training you receive. This is the option most of my riders choose. Need a Skype call, unlimited email and power meter data analysis as well? TRY MY NEW CURVE TO THE RIGHT PACKAGE! SEE PACKAGES/WATTBIKE TESTING FOR FURTHER DETAILS!

I can also offer a more comprehensive training package including face-to-face contact and testing – please Contact BlackCat for prices (limited number of riders – South East England only).

EPlans are cycles of 6 weeks planning where each progressive session is planned for you. We go through a similar process to ECoaching in that you complete a rider questionnaire initially and this helps me to help you go faster. After an initial email exchange you then follow the plan until we review again in week 5. From there I plan the next cycle of training. Again, there is no set-up fee and no contract - each 6 week block is charged at the same one-off rate.
