MelRad Training Plans are appropriate for athletes from a broad background of experience and training availability.  They are designed to be scaled to your current fitness and training hours available and a variety of plans are offered to match the time of year you are training.  

Based on the training philosophy that has helped athletes race and WIN at the highest level both in pro and age-group racing, these flexible plans allow you to create a realistic training program you can commit to and be confident will improve your racing.  They also allow you to do the fun training you have available locally and still fit in the specific workouts you need to be ready on race day.

Plans are scaleable:  they work according to what you realistically can commit to each week and they are designed to be used more than once.  You decide how many workouts you need based on the time you have.  Consistently hitting the number of workouts as directed in the plan overview for your average training volume is your best road to success.  

Best of all, choosing a MelRad Training Plan makes you a PART OF OUR SQUAD!  You get a training plan, a team to belong to, access to discounted team gear and email support.  Join us and discover what it is to #RACERAD and #TRAINFORARADLIFE.
