COACHING FOR TRACK CYCLISTS:
Training for Track Cycling is different to road or MTB and as such the specific demands of track mean that workouts and sessions need to be tailored to suit. FTP Training’s experienced track coaches use their extensive first hand knowledge to design programs specific for the demands of high power and speed that is required for track racing and training. We continually improve our knowledge base by analysing power data and race videos from some of our world class athletes.
These methods have seen riders win at highest level of the sport, but more importantly for most riders these methods can be used to achieve amazing results for club and masters riders alike. You only need to look at the results FTP Training riders achieve to know that if you want the very best for yourself and you want to really know how good you can be then there is simply nobody better than FTP Training to help you get there.

Frequently Asked Questions
What’s the main difference in levels?
The main difference is coach interaction & added features. The higher the level the more coach contact hours you have per month. Higher levels also come with added features like data reviews.
Our most popular training program is the silver program – it gives a massive amount of value + heaps of coaching contact for cycling #frothers.
What if I ride in different disciplines? (e.g. MTB & Road)
We offer coaching not only within each discipline, but also across disciplines. e.g. Road Cycling, Mountain Biking, Enduro, etc. Simply purchase a 1:1 coaching package in the discipline that you ride in most, & let your assigned coach know so we can target both type of riding styles in your training.
How many hours do I have to train?
We’re firm believers of training smarter, not just harder. It all depends on what you want to get out of your cycling – but we recommend at least 5-6hrs a week to see some measurable progress.
