Simon equally enjoys designing and guiding large charity based trips, and more structured training days with smaller groups.

The hospitality provides a unique rustic experience of rural Italy, balanced with modern high standards.

    This open session camp focuses on event preparation, offering final training build, tapering and race strategy on the roads around Pienza, Monte Amiata and Montepulciano. Each day offers varied terrain and the chance to ride with a guide or alone with route materials. You will have your own group physiotherapist, who can provide tissue mobilisation (sports massage), biomechanical assessment and bike fitting to optimal power measurements. Race clinics are scheduled throughout the open sessions to complement the practical days. Closest airports Pisa or Perugia.

    Comments:  Simon has coached me in 2016 and 2017 towards improving my cycling and running performance. His scientific and holistic approach to training has not only led me to a PB in road racing but has kept me fit and healthy throughout the year. Blood lactate tests on the treadmill and the turbo as well as remote testing ensured the training sessions were frequently adapted to my fitness improvements and specific weaknesses. The adaptive program evolved nicely and the variations in training have kept me engaged and curious throughout the season. The winter work in the gym was especially beneficial for me to build more robust foundations and train injury free. I should also add that Simon has been most generous with his time and invested considerable energy to review my post session feedbacks, provide insightful comments and review planed training sessions as often as needed. He is very precessional and a pleasure to work with. While my recent career changes has forced me to take a step back from competitive racing, I have every intention to resume working with Simon as soon as I get the chance to and recommend his coaching and testing services wholeheartedly!

    Comments:  Simon is a very professional yet approachable coach/trainer. Is methods are very scientific and as such, the sessions he provides are specifically tailored to me. I appreciate his in depth answers to my many questions. His flexibility to session changes is second to know and happily changes my programme to adapt to my frequent injuries and holidays. I can't wait for Xterra Malta in 2018, I have a solid base now to move to the sessions which replicate the extreme course.

    Comments:  Simon undertook a lactate threshold test for myself and my friend. The test was conducted at my home and Simon brought all the specialised kit, including the ergo, with him. He conducted the tests with absolute professionalism and very efficiently. He expertly interpretated the results in a very detailed report. His knowledge on cycling physiology and training is fantastic and I can recommend Simon without hesitation. Thank you Simon!
