The Academic Approach
Jon's academic research investigated the interaction between the muscle bioenergetics and our integrated cardio-respiratory system. How this influences our fatigue mechanisms during exhaustive efforts and defines the “power-duration relationship” – essentially, our entire performance.
In the interim, he taught Exercise Physiology and Applied Sports Science topics, whilst also being a post-doctoral researcher investigating mathematical models to describe and predict exercise performance.
Next, was four years working in professional cycling, first as a coach and then as a performance scientist managing projects from training, nutrition, altitude, equipment design and selection, data analytics, pacing and performance modelling etc.
Jon's professional athletes have won: the Elite British National Road and TT championship (double), the Tour of Yorkshire (GC). The Tour of Britain (GC) twice, stages of all three Grand Tours, and the yellow jersey at the Tour de France (for a few days). Plus, much, much more.
He’s also helped hundreds of amateur athletes and regular cyclists to improve their training and performance, whatever their goals. From young to old, from fat to fit, from road to dirt, Jon can fast-track you to a better place.
