Here's a glowing endorsement from a happy customer, Mark Duggan:
I have to say I love these videos, I had a major accident in a race in Australia May 2014. I broke both legs and smashed my tibia plateau, pelvis was broken in seven places and broke three vertebrae. I was not sure I would ever walk again properly let alone ride my bike. I was lucky enough to meet an orthopaedic surgeon who was a cyclist and an extremely gifted trauma surgeon. Once he took over my case he assured me he could get me back on the bike. After many operations I set the bike on the computrainer and would sit on it and pedal backwards because I did not have enough rotation in the left knee to get over the top of the pedal stroke. This went on for weeks the more I pedalled backwards then forwards I would get just a little further. Then one day the knee rolled over the top and I was pedalling forwards again.
I already owned a decent library of Ergvideos and once I got the all clear to start pushing a bit I bit the bullet and grabbed the Peaks Coaching Group Hunter Allen set. I still could not walk properly but I could pedal the bike, I needed a crate to stand on so I could get on and off the bike but I was so excited everyday to get on it.
After not riding at all for thirteen months I did my first 20 minute test of 207 watts, followed the training plan from the Ergvideo website with Hunter Allan videos religiously and after 15 weeks my 20 minute test was 301 watts. Moral of the story these videos and training plans work if your prepared to suffer indoors for a while.
I'm back racing my bike even though walking is still a struggle compared to riding. I cannot thank Ergvideo and Peaks Coaching Group enough for the compilation of videos and training plans, it saved my sanity and got me back racing when I never thought it would be possible again. I still use them 3 times a week to keep me on track with my training.
