Our performance plans are designed to support you in achieving your goals. By pulling together experts in their relevant fields and combining their knowledge we can offer you a multi-disciplinary team with world class expertise in all areas that will affect your performance. We start by profiling your current level of performance, allowing us to identify the areas that you need to work on in order to improve your performance in your target event(s).
We look at performance from all perspectives, from your threshold power to your bio-mechanical efficiency, from your aerodynamic performance to your mindset. Every aspect of performance is assessed, and then optimised to maximise performance.
We use a 3 step process, Profiling, Performance Plan, Perform.
Each step is further broken down into individual components. To find out more about what we offer in each step please click on the logos below:
We work with professional and amateur athletes, each offers their own unique challenge, every performance plan needs to be customised to the individual athlete

There often come times in your career when you need an outside eye on what you're doing. In the 2015/16 season, James has been that eye. His knowledge of power and performance analysis are huge. Having him as part of my coaching team has been really important and given me belief I needed, exactly when I needed it.
Having a team coach is vital, and having the right person for that role is even more important. James has provided support, guidance and in depth knowledge to our riders and staff. He has helped us achieve more and never fails to impress.
I have worked with James for several years; from working full time in London with very limited time to train to now being a full time athlete on the Irish track squad. James’ depth of knowledge and attention to detail has proved invaluable throughout all of the varying changing circumstances in my cycling career culminating in winning the Irish Road Championships in 2015. I definitely attribute it to some very skilful coaching in the weeks, months and years leading up to it. I am looking forward to continuing to improve with James’ coaching and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to any athlete no matter what their ability.

Balancing family, work and other commitments is difficult to get the most benefit from the limited training time available. Especially when these elements often compete with a limited reserve of energy. It makes sense to get a coach who understands these commitments and the different, sometimes competing, demands they place on you. A good coach works with you to understand your goals and aspirations and then provides a training plan with varied sessions to meet these goals and ensure that you don’t get bogged down doing the same training sessions over and over again. James is this coach, who I have found does things differently to other coaches and is able to communicate clearly why you are doing the sessions you are doing.
