  • Bike Strength

    MTB Strength Factory

    You will come to the MTB Strength Factory gym in Bristol to train regularly with Ben.  These sessions are semi-private, meaning that there will be 1 to 4 people training at once, all working on their own personal training programmes under Ben’s supervision.  Sometimes you will train with other MTB Strength Factory athletes in a fun, friendly and gently competitive environment.  When you start training you will receive more individual attention in order to teach you correct form so that you can make the most gains with minimal risk of injury.

    1 x session per week for £86 pcm
    2 x session per week for £142 pcm

    This is a coaching session with Ben at the gym.  It tends to be best for people who live further away and can only train monthly or less often.  These sessions will have a specific aim determined by you and Ben together depending on your goals and ability level.  These sessions are also available at other locations but will incur additional costs for fuel.

    1-2-1 Session lasting approx 1 hour for £35

  • Strength Programming

    images

    This is only available to people who I have trained at least once as I don’t like to write strength programmes for people unless I know they can do the movements with good form.

    Usually you will come for a 1-2-1 Coaching session and then I will write you a 2 session strength programme.  You will alternate the sessions for a period of 3-6 weeks depending on your needs.  Typically you will then return for a follow up session at the gym where I review your training diary and then coach you through your new programme.

    Strength Programme, including mobility and stretching guide, £30
