AVID Coaching

AVID Coaching provides personalised training programmes for cyclists, runners and triathletes. Grounded in Sport and Exercise knowledge as well as practical coaching experience, these programmes will help you to train smarter and perform in competition. An important element of our programmes is consulting with our athletes in order to help them understand why their training has the effects it does, so that we can help them develop an understanding of their bodies and how they respond to exercise.

“Attentive, approachable and understanding with a wealth of knowledge and experience”

Avid Sport’s coaching packages are tailored to the individual athlete and are appropriate to all levels of experience and ability; from those looking to make their first steps into their sport to those looking to improve and take their competitive performance to the next level. The ultimate goal of any coaching plan is to create an enjoyable way for an athlete to get the maximum out of their sport, and a coaching package with Avid Sport can help you to achieve this.
