THE ENDURANCE ACADEMY
LOVE YOUR SPORT
So who are we? We are a close knit group of sports scientists and coaches (Jon Bateman & Alan Copland) who work with competitive and recreational athletes of all levels from elite to grassroots to ensure they surpass their goals. Working in person across Northern England and Central Italy, as well as worldwide via our online presence.
What makes us tick? Our love and passion for sport. We have both been involved in competitive and recreational sport throughout our lives as both athletes and practitioners and the buzz hasn’t stopped. I guess our strap line says it all for us, ‘LOVE YOUR SPORT’. A lot of us put so much time and effort into what we do and at times forget that the love and enjoyment of it got us started. We want to bring that back.
What can we offer you? An endurance training program which can include cycling, swimming, running, surfing and strength work. A performance sports nutrition plan which will assess your current eating habits and ensure you have a food first approach to cover all your energy needs. Consistency is key.
Get in touch for more on what we can do for you and remember, enjoy what you do!
WHAT WE DO
We very much enjoy and thrive on helping you achieve your goals. We ensure full understanding of what we do and why we do it so not only will you progress but question, learn, and take ownership of your journey.
We aim to educate and support athletes by empowering them to select the right foods and fluids, in the right quantity and at the right time. We do this by providing bespoke, periodised nutrition support that helps our athletes maximise training gains, reduce risk of illness and enhance recovery.
A mentoring relationship is based on trust, respect and candidness. You can expect all of these things with the mentors at Endurance Academy. They bring years and years of experience as athletes, coaches, mentors and significant others.
Jon is not only extremely knowledgeable about human physiology, but he was able to apply this to suit me as an athlete and an individual. He looks at the bigger picture and helps you to improve performance in all areas on and off the bike, some that I had never even thought of. Jon took me from getting dropped to winning races (Queen stage of The Ras, 2018), and the results achieved under his guidance are testament to the quality of his coaching.
