Nicosia , Cyprus
I am a qualified sports scientist, specialising in improving endurance performance.
I have successfully coached cyclists to national titles, personal bests, and completing goal events.
Using scientific research for training and analysis and the demands of the events to implement individual programmes for each athlete that work around their own lives and circumstances.
The passion i have for cycling it guided me to start looking for ways to improve and maximise the gains from the training. Now I have a Master degree on science of exercise and physical education and also a bachelor degree in sports science
Sports science and coaching are still evolving, and I am keep reading relating researches to endurance cycling performance, to ensure my knowledge and application is up to date with the latest methods of training
Understanding how the body responds and develops to effective training, which training will maximise VO2max, FTP etc., and what is needed for recovery is fundamental to the approach I take when coaching. However the science has to be applied to individuals with their unique set of circumstances, their lifestyles and their approach and response to training, where working together, listening to feedback and adjusting the training as needed is so very important.
Having competed in road race, Time Trials and MTB XCO, XCE and XCM also gives me personal experience to add to the mix.
In combining these scientific and personal approaches I have coached endurance athletes from age groupers to international level, male & female, young & old, winning national championships, regional and club titles, setting personal bests and completing goal events.
