Commit to get fit


We’re approaching Christmas, and that can only mean one thing: New Year is just around the corner. Time to lose weight, get fit, increase your health, and get faster on your bike.

If there’s one thing i regularly discuss with athletes, it’s weight loss, diet, and going faster. So, with that in mind, we’re introducing a new Training Plan - Commit to get fit. This is an 8 week training plan, and diet menu to help make sure you’re training and eating correctly. I’m also including some strength and conditioning exercises to help with all round health, a few recipes, and importantly a weekly Q&A session on a Monday evening (UK time) on our private Facebook page to answer your diet and training queries.

We’ve two plans — a newbie intro programme — so, if you’ve not ridden for a good while, or you’re fairly new to cycling (and exercise) this will be great for you. You don’t need to have a fancy heart rate monitor, or power meter. All you need is a bike, 3 to 4 days per week cycling time, and some motivation. If you can ride about 90 minutes at the moment you’re good to go with this programme (and if this is too far for you at present we’ll help you work out alternatives in the Q&A). Turn up with your motivation, eat correctly, do the training, and you’ll be losing weight. In just 8 weeks you could have lost 8 pounds or almost 4 kg. That’d be a great start to the new year and do wonders for your health, your waistline, and your cycling.

The other plan in our commit to get fit programme is for intermediate level riders. Again, no fancy equipment is needed, and in this plan it’s 4 days of cycling per week, but you’re starting from a higher level, so your long rides will vary between 2.5 and 4 hours in duration, and because of that you’ll get a bit more to eat on this plan. This plan would be ideal if you’ve ridden a few sportives, or just started racing and want to progress a little while losing weight.

At £50 this is an ideal way to get fit for 2019 and really start rocking those New Year goals.
