DOES ANY OF THIS SOUND FAMILIAR?

Our 30-Day Climb Like a Pro programme is designed to solve and answer the most common challenges and frustrations that all cyclists deal with on a regular basis when it comes to climbing:

- I can't  keep up with the peloton as the gradient starts to increase

- I don't know how to utilise my gears correctly when hitting a climb

- I don't have enough power in my legs to accelerate at the summit


- I suffer from lower back pain on long climbs

- I struggle to pace myself properly on longer climbs and run out of energy before reaching the top

- I've a weak core & can't comfortably hold myself steady on the bike

- I have poor flexibility and range of motion

- I don't have enough motivation to complete a training plan.

- I stomp on the pedals when the climb gets steep and struggle to hold a steady cadence

- My friends always have to wait for me at the top of every climb

"Ultimately we know deeply that the other side of every fear is freedom."

RIDER REVIEWS FROM OTHERS WHO'VE COMPLETED THIS PROGRAMME

"I can really recommend this programme for anyone wanting to put a bit more effort into your practice – who doesn’t want to climb better! You’ll definitely improve on climbing through strength & core exercise and structured bike rides. This programme will dial things up – I saw my relatively good fitness test results improve by 30-50% and felt at the end I “controlled” the same climbs around Surrey Hills where I’d previously “battle up.”

Otso Huovinen

"A really well balanced programme which greatly improved my general fitness, strength and flexibility. The option to select a target of metres to climb each week, also added an element of competitive fun and motivation. This certainly spurred me on to get out on the bike to complete hill climbing rep drills or venture out into Surrey to climb a hill or two. I now feel a lot stronger on the hills. Roll on the next programme!"

Simon Robinson

"My goal for this programme was to get out of my comfort zone and climb a bit more, and most importantly to enjoy it - I’ve certainly done that. I am climbing much more than I thought I would – Still no fan of short sharp climbs but actively heading out on routes where I know climbing is involved or even doing things like Alpe du Zwift which I simply wouldn’t have tried before. Thanks for such a fun 8 weeks that was well organised and on a platform that was easy to navigate."

Fiona Inskip

"The harder the climb the better the view"
