With our knowledge and experience of writing and executing succesful performance training plans, we'll ensure that our programs hit the correct distribution of training zones and energy systems to see your performance skyrocket!
Our unique science-based training methods target sport specific critical Mobility, Stability, Strength & Power qualities to ensure you stay injury free and pedalling hard. Let’s face it, If you're injured you can't train, if you can’t train you can’t improve your performance.
Strength and Conditioning (also known as S&C) is very important in cycling and more so in a discipline like cyclocross with so many spikes in power, the awkward dismounts, and the brutal low cadence efforts through thick mud. To be a successful rider you need both fitness and strength, here at NP Cycle Solutions we will deliver sessions that are going to fit your specific needs as a cyclist and cyclocross athlete.
Hi Guys, I am the Performance Director at NP Cycle Solutions. I have undergraduate degrees in Sport Science & Physiotherapy as well as a Masters in Sport & Exercise Medicine. I am also a published author in the field of Athletic Performance & Injury Risk.
Cycling is very much a passion of mine, although I have to admit I am very average and in no way in the same league as James. However, I love all aspects of cycling: training, group rides, competing in local events and taking on cycling adventures across the Globe.
Here at NP Cycle Solutions, both James and I are dedicated to helping each and every single client we work with achieve their goals. We promise to go above and beyond to help you on your journey.
I'm a coach who likes to leave no stone unturned with the goal to not only maximise your power profile and fitness but to help you everywhere with injury prevention, nutrition, race tactics, technical skills, bike setup.
Alongside Johnny I am dedicated to helping clients of all abilities achieve their cycling goals. Whether you're recovering from an injury or aiming to improve your performance in mountain biking, cyclocross, road racing, or time trialling, we can design an individualised training program tailored to your unique physiology, goals, and lifestyle.
Having raced myself from local races around a park to elite World Championships I have gathered lots of experience and knowledge through training and racing that I want to share to help you get faster.

My unwavering passion has always been to help cyclists improve their Athletic Performance and reduce their risk of future injury. Over the past two decades, I've dedicated myself to continuous learning, ensuring that our practice remains evidence-based & highly effective.
A fundamental principle for me is to never recommend anything I wouldn't personally undergo myself. Consequently, the guidance I provide on performance training, rehabilitation, recovery, & pain science is something I wholeheartedly embrace in my own life.
I've had the privilege of working with numerous cyclists in terms of improving Athletic Performance or helping them get over a stubborn injury with extraordinary results.
We would love the opportunity to assist you on your journey
