Grant Goodman

I work with cyclists from novice to club level to advance their lifetime fitness, endurance and wellbeing. I focus on you as an individual, your goals, your concerns, and where you are on your journey to sustainable fitness.  With a lifetime of consulting experience and many years of endurance cycling, I develop science-based workouts and conditioning sessions that develop resilience and build performance specific to your goals.  I start by understanding you, your baseline fitness, your fears and concerns, then work with you with regular reviews to advise and fine-tune skills and workouts, thereby continuously optimising your performance, making you  a better, more confident cyclist.

My philosophy is based on personal experiences of what it is like to start cycling in your middle years, dealing with the doubt and fears of how to actually ride a bike safely, what to wear and how to survive the first 90 days without injuring yourself or anyone else; to take on and achieve goals which seemed impossible at the time;  combining that experience with my engineering and consulting background enabling me to harness best practise from world leaders in sports science and data analysis and of course making sure I do it right through coaching certification with British Cycling and TrainingPeaks.    

I use a combination of cutting-edge research, proven techniques, industry leading tools together with my own experiences of riding multi-day endurance events such as LEJOG, Calais/Montpellier,   Majorca 312 and London/Paris,  to help individuals achieve their goals (see testimonials below) and work with The Prince's Trust riders in 2018 and 2019, helping them prepare for their epic Ride Across Britain adventures. 

I develop challenging but achievable training regimes to get you where you want to be. I include workouts that build base endurance, combined with short but high intensity interval workouts to build aerobic capacity, improve lactate threshold, develop muscular strength and improve FTP. 

Body conditioning advice is included, with techniques that ensure you have the correct range of movement and control within the range to ensure that you are able to maintain the right level of flexibility thereby reducing the chance of injury. 

I work with partners such Sufferfest to integrate their yoga and mental strength sessions into my training plans and use heart rate variation tools to ensure you never do a workout you are not physically prepared to complete and ensure you understand the factors that impact your freshness and readiness to perform. 

Using these technologies and methods I see myself as your enabler to achieve your health, fitness and performance goals.    Pedalling success since 2017.

Testimonials and Clients

 

" Grant prepared me for a 1 day 205km ride from Leicester to London in 2018. I had an ok bike and an amount of bravado but Grant helped me to prepare properly. As the ride was in March, with Grant’s advice I bought a Turbo to ride indoors through the winter and all the electronics to analyse my riding ability and fitness. Grant has great experience and patience and developed a programme for me to improve my fitness and technique, including rides we did together. He really knows his stuff and I had a great sponsored ride, surprising myself with my ability to go the distance (with the help of loads of pasta, bananas and sponge pudding and custard!). I would recommend Grant to anyone wanting a sympathetic yet challenging cycling trainer""

This program is ideal for people like me who would like to cycle more but don't know how to get into it. I bought my bike last year but hardly used it, having the coach encourage and guide you makes the process so much easier. 3 rides a week is just about right to get you into the swing of things and the coach is there all the way to encourage you and answer all the little questions you're afraid to ask. The team are so friendly and enthusiastic about cycling, you can't help but catch the bug. The bonus is you get fit too!”

" Grant's passion for cycling and his knowledge and ability to impart it are very inspiring . I have had the pleasure of accompanying Grant on a few long rides now. Some of them around the 100 mile mark. 4 years ago I was 3 stone overweight, depressed and feeling very low about myself. This year I cycled 1500KM in 15 days incorporating 5 of the hardest climbs on the Tour De France calender! One of the descents off of Mont Ventoux was with Grant. It was a highlight of the trip.   I can highly recommend Cycle For Fitness!"

Alexander R, Plymouth, England


“I was fortunate enough to have a 1-2-1 training ride with Grant prior to a large road event. His expertise and knowledge on how to ride efficiently was second to none. I learned how to change gear properly (at last!) and how to attack hills with maximum energy. This really did make a world of difference to the ride and all of his techniques and tips made for a much smoother, easier and (I'm pleased to say!) faster ride. Thanks Grant!”

Services

We offer three categories of service depending upon where you are on your journey, the level of interaction you would like and the goals that you would like to achieve.  The three categories are

Cycling Development Packages

If you are looking to improve your road cycling and need a guiding hand, we offer "ready to go" packages that you do at your own pace, with backup and guidance from the team.
 
 Alternatively, if you are a self-sufficient cyclist who does not require interaction with the team, but needs some structure to your training, we offer a number of "off the peg" plans through our partner TrainingPeaks. 

In both instances, the plans are designed to support all abilities, from the novice/beginner through to club level cyclists who wish to improve their fitness and performance.

Consulting and Coaching
