Whether you’re training for your first marathon, or you’re a seasoned athlete – we can help you get the most out of your training, and prepare you to get your best time ever.
Combine our training with a Blood Lactate testing package and come race day, you’ll know exactly where you stand, exactly what pace you need to be at and an idea of where you should be finishing knowing that there will be no nasty surprises come race day.
Go out too hard and fast, and you’ll hit the wall and your time will crash… too slow and you’ll still have lots in the tank at the finish and you’ll know that you could have shaved a few seconds (or even minutes!) off of your time.
Our Training – We all know why we train, but why do we train the Competitive Edge way? Because we know that we are responsible for – come competition time – ensuring that the athlete gets the required mix of strength, power, speed & endurance, while keeping on top of training and competition nutrition and the all important aspects of rest and recuperation. Our expert analysis of your competition ensures that training is focussed on the energy systems required in running the full marathon distance – so an athlete is fine tuned to be at peak performance for the full marathon, not just general fitness. We combine proven, evidence based scientific research with real world knowledge. We know that there is no ‘perfect program’ that will give everybody the best results – despite what Men’s Health or ‘that guy’ down the gym may tell you – but the is a perfect program for an individual athlete, at a specific point in time. It’s our job to make sure that our testing, programming and monitoring ensure that this is what the athlete is receiving, 100% of the time.
Our Nutrition – All of our plans offer complete nutritional analysis out of the box. An athlete can log, analyse and adjust their diet to make sure they are getting the most out of their training – if they’re short on something, then we even give them snack and meal advice on how this can be rectified. Our top level plans also include training and competition nutrition plans specific to your sport, and individualised plans can be arranged.
Our Promise – You will become a better athlete. Whether it is through increased strength, power, speed and agility, or simply a reduction in your race time, we will create realistic and meaningful goals for each athlete, and we will make sure that they reach them. We’re so confident in our ability to get the best out of your athletes, and our testing and training methods, that if they don’t work, your next testing and/or training will be free, making sure that you reach your full potential.
