A life long mountain biker, Ben spent his 20’s as an officer in The British Army, serving all over the world and retiring as a Captain. In 2014 Ben set up The Strength Factory. Since then Ben has worked with World Cup pro’s like Joe Smith, Charlie Hatton (Trek & Atherton Bikes) and Mike Jones (MS Mondraker), freeride star Veronique Sandler and Enduro World Series racers Chris Hutchens (Wideopen Nukeproof) and Fergus Ryan (Santa Cruz) as well as literally HUNDREDS of amateur racers and every day trail riders like you. When you sign up to The Complete DH Programme you are in safe hands.
Yes, absolutely. The programme is progressive and at every stage you are coached through the exercises with HD videos. Just take your time and pay attention to your technique and you will pick it up in no time.
Yes it is.
All levels of rider can use the programme. As well as the pro riders using this system of training, we have age group racers and riders who just want to enjoy their weekly rides more.
Whilst loads of racers use the programmes, we also have a growing number of trail riders using it to stay fit, strong and healthy. Many people also use it for a specific event or trip, like a week in the Alps or a big event in the summer.
You can start at any time of the year and start making progress with your strength and performance. No matter when you start, you will begin with the 8-Week Foundation Programme which you can join on this page. That will enable you to move onto the Complete MTB Team safely so you make good progress and get amazing results. It is important to follow the correct sequence in order to make safe progress. If we just dropped you straight into The Complete MTB Team without this foundation work you would be at increased of injury and your strength/fitness gains would be compromised.
If you are coming in with a good level of strength and fitness and feel confident in the gym and would like to skip The 8-Week Foundation Programme then please fill out the contact form at the bottom of this page and Ben will get back to you.
No you don’t. We have designed the programme specifically to be accessible to people in normal gyms. You need access to barbells, dumbbells and/or kettlebells. You will also need some space and a pull up bar. Things that are nice to have, but not necessary are a rowing machine, plyo box, and suspension trainer.
This is totally down to you and your doctor or physio to decide. We never suggest that you train through pain, however if you have a small niggle, you can often train around it, making good progress in other areas whilst doing your rehab.
The amount of time you train is up to you. Each week, you are provided with 4 main training sessions: 2 strength sessions and 2 interval or bike based sessions of different intensities and durations. On top of that you may wish to ride more, especially in summer with extra MTB rides or uplifts.
Yes, under the supervision of an adult. We have a number of youth and junior riders on the programmes across the UK and beyond.
When you first sign up, you receive the whole, 8-Week Foundation Programme in 1 go, straight to the TrainHeroic app on your phone. You will then have access to this for 1 year.
When you finish the Foundation you will be invited to join The Complete MTB Team on TrainHeroic. You do not have to join and continue training at this point, but if you do……
It is a monthly subscription programme that you can cancel any time. No contract.
Yes I am based in the UK, however the app is based in the USA and bills in $. This does mean that for riders outside USA your exact monthly payment will vary slightly each month as currencies fluctuate.
