Alasdair Garnett   Coaching @ The Practice

I operate from a multi-disciplinary practice in Linden, Johannesburg.
We have a holistic, athlete centered, evidence based coaching philosophy providing the following services;

  • Periodised training programs focusing on long-term development
  • FTP and VO2 Max testing
  • Wattbike training sessions
  • Outdoor training rides (Road & MTB)
  • Bike set-up
  • Skills clinics for Road & MTB
  • Training camps
  • Nutrition on and off the bike
  • Race tactics and strategies


I am a multiple National Road & Time Trial Champion, UCI & Training Peaks certified & the current Chairman of Coaching for Cycling South Africa.
We focus on results based outcomes and constantly adapt and optimize training programs and philosophies according to your results to maximize your training and reach your potential, whether your goal is to finish an event or compete for podiums at international level.

We run a multi-discipline facility which provides us with expertise, knowledge, experience and collaboration.
Coaching entails more than following a training program, we look holistically at the entire process where you (the athlete!) are the center and focus of attention, everything and everybody revolves around you, your lifestyle and capabilities to ensure you reach your key events in top form and achieve your goals all while enjoying the ride!

We have all the skills & equipment to objectively analyse progress and performance, including;

  • WattBikes,
  • 3D posture, motion & pedal analysis,
  • Biodex Isokinetic & balance testing,
  • COSMED VO2 Max testing,
  • Training Peaks & WKO4 software where we can drill down to a granular level of workout analysis or monitor trends over selected time-frames.

We utilize our expertise, knowledge and experience to translate data, numbers and test results into relevant meaningful real-world information that is beneficial to you (the athlete!), the center of our attention!

Physical locality is no restriction, we can coach you wherever you are!
