QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
What happens after I pay? How do I access the programme?
As soon as you make payment for the programme, you are taken to a download page. Simply folllow the link to download the programme. You are also sent a personal download link via email. You can use this to download the programme to all your devices.
What if I get stuck or have any questions?
Signup to the free MTB Fitness Members Group. In there, many other people working through the programme chat to each other and ask questions. You can get help from other followers and also from me (Matt) personally. I answer questions daily in the group. You can be safe in the knowledge that if you get stuck, you'll be able to get help through the group. You can also email me directly.
Do I need any equipment?
Included in the programme are 12 weeks worth of gym plans and 12 weeks worth of seperate home plans. The home plans require only a resistance band to complete, so you can do them from anywhere at all with next to no equipment. You also need access to a static bike, gym bike, indoor trainer or your 'actual' bike to complete the interval sessions.
Do I need to go to the gym?
NO. You can choose between training at home or training in the gym. You get both plans included. You just need one piece of equipment for the home plans (a resistance band). There is a link to the recommended one in the programme, but any resistance band is fine.
How does the programme work and how do I follow it?
The programme comes in digital PDF Format. You download it instantly on payment and then get access to the full 12 weeks of workouts, intervals and daily stretches. You then follow the plans in your own time. You get access for life.
How much time will I need?
You need to train 3x per week (either following the home or the gym plans) do 2x interval sessions. You can combine the interval sessions with either your gym/home workouts, your MTB rides or your commute if you struggle for time. The workouts take 30-40 minutes, so can fit into even the busiest of schedules. The interval sessions take 20-40 minutes.
Who is the programme for?
Every mountain biker who wants to improve their fitness. You get out what you put in and you go at your own pace. The fittest riders will be able to do the plans faster, with heavier weights (for the gym plans) and push themselves harder. The less capable can go at their own pace. All will get great results.
I’m overweight. Will this plan help me lose weight. will it be too difficult for me and should I get fitter before starting?
So this plan is great for overweight people who want to lose weight and it’s helped hundreds of people do exactly that (just read the testimonials below). If you combine the plan with a good nutrition plan, it will really help you lose weight. I would recommend getting a copy of the nutrition guide (available on this website) to help along side the 12 week programme. The plan won’t be too difficult, it’s specially designed to help everyone from the least fit rider to the most fit. The less fit riders can do less reps on the home plans, lift less weight on the gym plans and not push as hard on the intervals. You should start now - don’t wait to ‘get fitter’.
What happens after the 12 weeks?
You've earnt the right to move onto the 16 Week Advanced Programme! This is the follow on programme to the 12 Week Programme. It builds on all of the progress you make in the first programme. You also have access to the 12 Week Programme for life, so you can re-do portions if you like.
Can I buy the programme in my country?
YES. The programme has been bought in 43 countries (and growing). With it being in PDF (digital) format you can instantly download it wherever you are in the world. Payment is available via many methods including Paypal. For an idea of cost just google '£30 into <your currency>' or pay via Paypal.
Do you only get access to a PDF or is there also a hard copy mailed to you?
PDF only. However you can upload it to an online printer and cheaply get it delivered
Is there a nutrition pack included with the 12 week training plan?
The nutrition guide is a seperate product available on the website :)
Why is the programme so low priced?
My mission with MTB Fitness is to help every rider in the world get fitter, faster and stronger on the bike. The programme is so low priced to lower the entry barrier for people as much as possible. I toyed with charging 4-6x the cost of the programme, but decided I wanted to make the programme available to as many people as possible at as low of a price is possible. The graphic design costs alone were 50 times the price of the programme. You get a high valued product for a really low price.
