Make the most of your Coast to Coast
Steve Gurney coaching
Auckland & Christchurch
This all-day workshop is for beginners, and for experienced athletes.
I’ve got separate break-out segments for novices, and for experienced students.
The workshop is predominantly working at the level of mental excellence. It’s not dependent on fitness or experience. It’s the fundamentals of what goes on behind this. It’s about getting the best out of your training and preparation through mental processes, attitude and setting very specific goals.
One of the Challenges facing Auckland athletes is the lack of access to the Coast to Coast course. I’ll be dedicating time on the workshop to alternative training to develop the specific skills required.
I’ll be sharing what I learned from winning and losing over 20 years of Coast to Coast. This workshop is about getting better results, more easily.
Like all multisport events, the Coast to Coast has it’s unique terrain, and challenges. This is about learning how to train smart. How to train specifically for the mountain conditions.
I’ll be sharing with you the latest research from people who successfully and consistently achieve their goals. I’m delving deeply with you into the psychology of how connect powerfully with your goals.
We’ll explore the many ways to change training drudgery into excitement and fun.
We’ll have two 60 minute physical sessions,
Session one, rock running:
The science of rock running technique, with drills and practice. There is no need to be fit at all for this, it’s simply about technique.
Session two, kayak:
Kayak technique and drills. Once again there’s no need for fitness.
There is no physical bike session, but there is a little cycle theory covered. There is plenty of road cycle coaching available in most cities, so I have elected to cover the specialized specifics of multisport.
The venue is stunning, perfect for our specific learning, and has a café and bakery for lunch nearby (or bring your own).
Basic Agenda: (order may change according to tides/weather for practical sessions)
