Can’t be there in person?Thanks to @gozwift I was able to sit in and watch and coach @runningonvegetables through a test work out today. Big thanks to @kevinpoulton for sharing this concept last year. #cycling #zwift #hoppersportsperformance #triathlon #ironman
Here’s another great podcast with Sebastian Weber, this time with Beven from @fitter.co.nz about the benefits of testing with @inscyd_ and knowing key physiological markers such as VO2max, Vlamax and FATMAX. The interview can be found on Fitter Radio Episode 297. Contact us to book your own testing or to find out further information #fitterradio #fatoxidisation #fatmax #fatmaxtraining #VLaMax https://www.fitter.co.nz/fitter-radio/2020/1/6/episode-297-sebastian-weber
When working with athletes, long term development is something I put high on the list of priorities. When I first start with an athlete I’m just as interested in the 5 year goals as there immediate ones. Taneka is an athlete that’s really taken this approach on board and is now entering stage 2 of this long term vision. #triathlon #triathlontraining #ironman #ironmantraining #Repost @taneka92 with @get_repost ・・・ ‘If there’s just one piece of advice I can give you, it’s this - when there’s something you really want, fight for it, don’t give up no matter how hopeless it seems. And when you’ve lost hope, ask yourself if 10 years from now, you’re gonna wish you gave it just one more shot. Because the best things in life, they don’t come free.’ - Meredith Grey 🌟⁣ ⁣ 12 months and 2 days and I’ll be back out there at @ironmanoceania chasing that goal time. 12 months of consistent training - I’m ready for you 🏊🏻‍♀️🚴🏼‍♀️🏃🏼‍♀️ @hoppersportsperformance let’s do this 🙌
Athlete well-being is something very important for us at Hopper Sports Performance. Our work with Kat is an excellent example of this. We work in training around what can be a mentally and physically taxing non standard shift job, as well as her partners shift work. There is definitely some extra work involved to make the program work but it’s all worth it when the athlete buys into the process as much as she does. A happy athlete equals a well performing athlete #marathon #ironman #triathlon #Repost @runningonvegetables with @get_repost ・・・ One final run on the trails before 6 inch. Let’s hope it’s not as warm on the day 🥵 as always thank you to my super coach @hoppersportsperformance for always dealing with fitting my training in not just around my shifts but robs as well to keep life and training balanced 🙏🏻 I’m going into this feeling confident and excited to ✔️ off my first marathon 🙌🏼
Big congratulations to @taneka92 on finishing her first 70.3 yesterday. She managed to push back disappointment of having to pull out Busso 70.3 in May during race week due to a bike crash and refocus on this event. This meant putting together a solid and consistent winter of training setting her up to get the job done. #hoppersportsperformance #ironman #ironman703
All of us at Hopper Sports Performance wish our cyclocross main man @xhotbradx all the best with his recovery from spinal surgery after a big crash training on Sunday. #cyclocross #cx #squidbikes #hoppersportsperformance
