Training programs are ALL designed by Coach John Newsom. All programmes are specifically designed for the individual athletes needs. 
When athletes join our coaching service we like to firstly agree on a plan for the entire year or season. This way both the coach and athlete are working towards a clearly defined goal(s). Within this goal we also map out shorter term goals which help you the athlete to track progress and see and feel the improvements in performance. 
Where possible we like to use video analysis whereby the athlete has someone video them whilst training and sends a tape to their coach. Feedback is given via analysing training data with weekly communication via a combination to skype and email.  

How the coaching service works: 

Initial Consultation 

This involves the athlete filling in a number of questionnaires so we can understand the athletes training history, work and family commitments, injuries, equipment, access to facilities and so on. During this faze the athlete may be required to do a series of tests to help set training zones and heart rate thresholds. 

Skype / FaceTime Consultation

Following communication and completion of several forms we have a conversation to discuss the information gathered and plan the months ahead. The best way for the athletes to get the most out of their program is to be completely honest with the coach and likewise the coach needs to get to know the athlete personally.
