Training with a professional cycling coach

Pro Cycling Coaching is a specialist cycling coach service that aims to teach cyclists how to get the most out of their bodies. The cycling training programs on offer are inlined with how professionals train, but custom designed to fit clients with eight to five jobs. The programs focus on quality work and constructive cycling training.

There are not a lot of professional cyclists who offer coaching and Morné's clients, therefore, have the advantage of getting valuable tips from someone who has been there.

“I know, and can share, exactly what to do on the bike and when to do it. The success of my cycling training programs is apparent in my clients' astonishing results and the champions that were produced both on the road and in duathlons. As they get stronger there are an enormous drop in race times.”

The cycling programs are carefully structured to ensure that the clients train in the correct way. He especially concentrates on power work on the bike and heart rate training. All types of interval training and proper recovery rides that are slow enough are just as important. People often don't train hard enough and don't ride slow enough on their recovery rides.

As the only cycling coach at Pro Cycling Coaching, Morné will be your personal cycling coach, acknowledging you as an individual rider. You will receive a weekly program based on what you are training for and what your needs are to ensure that you reach your cycling goals. Based on weekly feedback from you Morné will be able to monitor your progress and adjust the program.

For cyclists preparing for tours like the Cape Epic and Sani2C, you will learn what proper base training is (how to get towards it, when to start with it and the reason for doing it). You will also learn more about block sessions after base training and the benefits thereof. Your success all comes down to quality training on the bike that will make you stronger.

Cycling training is all about getting to know your body; adapting to those days that you're not feeling great and then changing your training to fit your needs. With Morné's experience and his personal involvement in your journey to success, he is able to take your riding to the next level.

Pro Cycling Coaching is Hermanus based, but Morné is a cycling coach throughout South Africa.

“I believe in doing quality sessions with you to make sure you get stronger.”
