I’m 47 years old and have been riding seriously for around 6 years. I’ve been trained by Andrew of Fitlab for a few years now. Andrew has extensive experience as a top-level racer and trainer. But he also understands the time constraints and commitments of those with work and family like me. He has been very thorough in assessing my goals and tailoring a training programme that fits my time availability. Interval training and working on specific aspects of my fitness have been key elements in the programmes Andrew has set for me. It keeps training interesting!
Andrew is always very responsive and willing to answer my queries and provide advice on all aspects on my riding. Since I’ve been seeing Andrew I’ve improved my speed and stamina substantially. I rode Taupo in 4:18 last year, which is almost an hour quicker than 6 years ago. I’ve become competitive in B-grade club races when previously I made up the numbers in C-grade. Generally I’ve enjoyed my training, racing and riding more since being with Fitlab.
I recommend Fitlab for anyone wanting to improve their cycling in a friendly, professional and time effective way.
