Grit - Always Reaching Further
Hard work and motivation are essential for success in cycling, but without clear and productive goals and effective training strategy, both those things won't count for much in the long run.
At Grit Coaching, we offer tried and tested methods with experienced guidance that help you get clear on your goals and train smarter with the time you have available.
Whether you are beginner or pro, the basic principles are the same. Let us help you tap into your potential.

Getting Started with a Grit Coach/Mentor
Sign up directly by going to Personal Coaching page or contact us first to make an appointment via Skype or meet at a local cafe if you are Auckland based and talk through our coaching levels and process.
If you are keen to meet up first, then we go right to step two and answer any questions you might have.
We meet up and talk through your specific goals, Training history, Time available to train. Plus a few other key areas to help the coach create an effective plan.
We also go through our coaching process and software we use to deliver the training programmes and generally make sure we are on the same page.
As well as cycling and strength and conditioning we also have a range of specialist partners which we have tried and tested extensively. Its all part of our aim to offer solutions and knowledge to any requirement you may have.
We set up your Grit Academy account and start to create your training programme with either your own
Training Peaks account or our programme builder depending on your level of coaching.
From here we get into the nitty-gritty, and you start your training. We continually evaluate and refine your training.
As well as use an extensive process for delivering feedback to help you grow and learn as an Athlete. This is where the magic happens!

Paul Coles has been coached by Logan for over 6 years, and in this time he has developed himself into a real leader of the Grit coaching group. Paul is extremely passionate about helping people improve and gain as much from the sport as he has. "Goal setting, strategic thinking and long term planning are at the core of what I do day to day from a work perspective" Paul believes in working backwards from a goal, deconstructing what it takes to achieve said goal and developing a plan to execute. Paul has had great success both coaching and in his own sporting endeavours. He has completed in a wide spectrum of events from age group world championships in Perth and France to completing 4laps of Taupo (630km non stop) in under 25hours.
