Everesting Coaching / Training Testimonial by Simon Enger

Bit late, but here ya go!

Simon was my first client ever to take on an Everesting… indoors! This was an interesting challenge to me as a coach as Simon has (kick the ass of) Chron’s which brought some things to manoeuvre around but, we, mainly he, did it!

I worked with Lee for a few months in the lead up to my virtual Everest attempt. Having never worked with a coach before I didn’t know what to expect.

I had always trained with power and I particularly enjoyed Lee’s approach in working with mixing watts with a perceived rate of exertion scale. I found it freed up my mind from concentrating just on the numbers and I enjoyed the training regime a lot more.

I felt myself getting stronger as we worked together and also found that my endurance improved considerably.

The weekly catchup was insightful to both review and recentre one’s self for the next block. The mental challenge is usually my toughest challenge in training so having someone there to keep me grounded was especially useful.

On the day I felt prepared, my body and mind were strong. My goal going into this was to enjoy the experience and finish comfortably. Both of these aspects were achieved, massive kudos to Lee for getting me there.
