FAQ’s

What is The Consummate Athlete?

At the Consummate Athlete, the goal is simple: help people lead their best active, adventurous lives. We do this through coaching and training plans as well as a blog, podcast and book. 

Coaching: Longtime endurance coach and kinesiologist Peter Glassford provides services ranging from daily, ultra-personalized coaching to pre-made training plans to help you meet your cycling or triathlon goals.

Content: Author and athlete Molly Hurford brings all the resources that you need to stay motivated, dial in your healthy habits around your fitness goals, and stay accountable through articles and videos. We also host the weekly podcast, The Consummate Athlete Podcast, talking to experts and professional athletes and answering listener questions about how to be the best athletic version of you.

What is the Difference Between Training Plans & Coaching?

Training Plans are like buying a Map to Your Goal. Plans give you a workout schedule to follow in Training Peaks (free account included). Plans are flexible for shorter durations (e.g. to build for a single race).

Coaching is like Hiring a Guide in addition to getting a Map to your Goal. Coaching adds feedback, adjustment, and accountability to plans. Our coaching is for long-term and ongoing goals rather than single races. Our intention is to work with coaching clients for years. Short-Term Clients can consider Training Plans and Phone Consults.

In-Person Bike Coaching or Bike Skills Coaching is also available for any client

Do I Need Cycling Coaching?

Maybe! There are many reasons that adults get coaching. Online coaching and training prescription helps master’s athletes balance their work and family commitments with the athletic and health goals they have. We help you find a training load that works, maximize the time you have and we help you adjust when, inevitably, life gets in the way.

Top Reasons Masters Athletes Hire A Cycling Coach

  • Get inside information, avoid common mistakes, and increase the chance of success
  • Not having to plan a workout schedule
  • Objective voice to celebrate the victories and navigate tougher times
  • New, Different, and Variable Workout Ideas
  • Accountability
  • Help with data and technology
  • Avoid Overtraining

Their levels range from goals around improving general health up to going for the win at Masters World Championships.

If you’re not coached by us, you can purchase a Zoom or phone consultation to customize your plan further or to discuss training questions or specific data files. We do not assess the files or training of people using our pre-made or custom training plans to protect your privacy. (That is the difference between a training plan and coaching.)

It’s not only the custom training plan; I learned about sleeping, eating, cross training, self confidence. Peter is as much a coach as a sport psychologist, always listening and encouraging.

I have to admit I put all my faith on your podcast on power to weight. I have been able to stay off a scale now for the past couple of seasons and concentrating on making sure I'm fueled properly and I think it is paying off with bigger power.
