We have the scientific background and experience to maximize your training.

 

As exercise physiologists and university lecturers, Michael and Chrissy have the education and experience to design annual training plans and get you to race day optimally prepared. Utilize the techniques available to professionals to better understand your training intensities and track training load. Make the most of every hour of every day! 

We serve our athletes by guiding them to race day with the optimal physical development to meet their specific goals. We prioritize continuity of training through injury prevention. We achieve this through periodized training stress, guided by objective quantification of the training load, and subjective feedback from the athlete. This means, one size does not fit all! We utilize the most current research available in the sport/exercise science field to assure you that each decision we make together, is well informed and your time well spent.
