With a lifelong passion for cycling and a background in road racing and time trials, I am fully aware of the import role a cycling coach has with their client.  As part of the TORQ Performance racing team, I have worked  closely with the TORQ Fitness Consultancy to develop training and nutritional strategies for endurance cycling events. 

As a level 2&3 cycling coach, personal trainer and nutritional advisor recognised by the UK Register of Exercise Professionals. I will personalise your 'goal specific' training programme via the Today's Plan platform, in addition to offering INSCYD Power Performance Decoder and Lactate testing. I get great satisfaction supporting clients of all abilities reach their fitness goals.  I've road raced at elite level and have won national time trial championship medals.


Personal Bests:                      

25 miles - 47:43

50 miles - 1:38:13

100 miles - 3:21:00

12 hours - 312.61 miles

24 hours - 527.77 miles

In addition, I support local road safety groups, partitioning for improved cycling infrastructure in Cheshire, Staffordshire and the Peak District area.




WORKOUT PLAN & Lactate Testing

We are all different, therefore we all need an individualised training plan.  as your online cycling coach I can provide both bespoke training solutions from as little as £1.43 per day via the Today's Plan platform, and advanced blood lactate testing kit using the INSCYD software.  So whether your goal is to start a basic fitness routine or prepare for an Ironman, together we can achieve that target. 

  • INSCYD is used by BORA-hansgrohe, Jumbo Visma and CCC and is now available for all athletes.

  • INSCYD will benefit your training schedule and performance with both a scientific foundation and precise predictability.

  • With INSCYD you’ll get full picture of your physical capacities and also a prediction of your training and racing outcomes.


INSCYD takes into account, and connects to one another, the most important metrics for training purposes:


  • VO2max

  • Anaerobic threshold

  • Lactate accumulation and recovery

  • Fat and carbohydrates combustion

Each month we will work on specific areas, setting small achievable daily tasks, before you move onto the next phase.  Your tailored workouts and nutrition strategy will be regularly reviewed and evaluated so you get the most out of every workout. 

As a Sparks Into Life client you will have access to continuous support from myself and an amazing fitness community to keep you motivated and help you stay on track.  Every plan starts with an initial consultation, so get in touch and let's spark this into life.

I contacted Mark about 8 weeks ago about coaching me to improve my cycling performance. Having known him for a few years and talking with him at races I felt he was the right person to improve my performance. Already I have seen great improvements and am looking forward to continuing to work with Mark and working towards achieving my goals. Mark is easy to approach and talk to and his knowledge is vast. Looking at not only the performance gains but the nutrition and fuelling as well. Tom

I have had the pleasure of being coached by Mark for 8 weeks now. I have had the biggest jump in power gains within this time that I have ever had during time trailing. Mark is approachable and has a wealth of knowledge and experience that I know will help me achieve my personal goals in time trailing this season. Thanks Mark.
