Race-specific coaching designed to bring on a peak in an athlete's physiological conditioning and components of fitness appropriate to his/her target events or key racing phases.

"This whole idea of measuring watts and people knowing what they can do, that's it. Whether it's an SRM, Quarq or Powertap they are using, people know what they can do for 2 hours, what they can do for 4 hours and they put it there and leave it there. Anytime above that they know, and we know, that ultimately they're going to pay the price - it's a math game."  Lance Armstrong

Is this for me?

All athletes, from age groupers through to elites, encounter plateaus in performance. Very few have the perspective or the capacity to objectively analyse their own training and race preparation, particularly if what is really required is new stimulus. For those athletes driven to perform, make sacrifices and willing to embrace the latest techniques that sports science can offer, this option is for you.

High Performance Coaching services

Following in-depth consultation with the athlete covering training and performance history, goals, limiters, equipment and strategy, we will put together a specific performance plan in which we develop an effective athlete ‘dashboard’ with key metrics and indices that objectively monitor overall training status.

Periodized Training Prescriptions
For optimal performance, training loads should be structured in such a way that the key components of fitness – aerobic metabolism, anaerobic capacity, muscle endurance and so on – which underpin the physiological demands of the athlete’s chosen sport, are honed and brought to a peak at the correct time. Training plans will be both dynamic and responsive to individual needs and constraints. We understand and accommodate the fact that the real world is apt to get in the way of the best laid plans from time to time.

Athlete Contact & Interaction
The key to getting the best out of the coach/athlete relationship is communication. That is why I only coach a small number of athletes at any given time. This way I am able to deliver a highly personalised, bespoke service. We will use whatever means of communication possible – phone, email, text, skype, and Training Peaks message board. No maximum calls or emails per week and other such nonsense. We are here for you. Period.

How do I get started?

Contact me. We can then set up a time to talk, preferably in person, and simply cover as much as possible about you, your goals and you training and racing background. Thereafter, if we go ahead, we will do some testing – maybe Critical Power bike tests, body fat, sub-maximal tests, technique analysis – all depending on your sport and goals. Then we lay out the roadmap to your success. This will give you an idea of what is possible, what is required and we can then look at how best to incorporate the plan into your lifestyle.

  • When I met Garth in 2013, in my late 40s, I was already in reasonable shape. Or so I thought! The programmes Garth has set for me have coaxed me along to a much higher fitness level.

  • Hi Garth
    Many thanks for a truly memorable weekend. The training, teaching and experience was fantastic: I was still reliving some of those climbs on the plane home! It was also great to meet your lovely family.
    Thank you again and I can’t wait to get back down for another weekend of precision training.

  • I was fairly new to cycling. I loved it, but felt like I had reached a plateau - I was suffering from frequent illness and injury, I didn't see much reward out for the extra effort in, and consequently my motivation was starting to falter. By good fortune, the gurus at Cyclefit recommended Garth Fox - and I haven't looked back since.

  • {Garth is} a man of integrity, who seems to be driven by nothing more than a desire to help others to achieve their dreams - be these to finish a sprint triathlon, or to qualify for Kona - Garth will be at your side (sometimes literally!) every step of your journey. You're in safe hands.

  • My goal after having two children was to get back to at least the level of 10k running performance I was at before having children, which was 50 mins. Under Garth's highly professional guidance I recently managed a time of 45 mins and came 6th in my age group! I am ecstatic and have already set my sights on a triathlon next year. As Garth always tells me, the limits are only where you set them. Thankyou!

  • Garth's enthusiasm for endurance sports physiology seemingly knows no bounds. He has a great understanding of the human body and how it responds to rest and training. He's also one of those rare people who have both communication and analytical skills, when most people only have one or the other.

    Phil Mosley - Elite Triathlete & Coaching Editor of Triathlon Plus magazine

  • Garth really knows how to connect the dots between training and performance. His enormous expertise in physiology and sports science makes his training interventions very perceptive and his ability to tease out the precise adaptations required for the desired improvement in performance with different training stimuli is uncanny.
