MEET THE TEAM BEHIND THE TEAM
As a regular commentator at major events including 947 Cycle Challenge, 702 Walk-the-talk and JUMA, Steve Saunders is a familiar face (and voice!) in the South African sports industry.
With a BPhysEd degree and professional cycling background, Steve strives to deliver best-in-class products and services and has a long history in the supply of technical equipment for sports performance monitoring and training.
“Modern fitness devices and equipment take the guess work out of training,” says Steve.
“They give you and your coach the data on TrainingPeaks to see whether you have overdone, underdone or achieved the objective of the day and facilitate an intervention,” he explained.
His area of speciality is the use of fitness equipment as an intervention strategy within a periodised programme, typically simplifying complex feedback mechanisms to help understand their usage in real life scenarios. Being able to understand technical data (HR, Power, Cadence, and 34 other parameters from the Wattbike) means he is able to assist the coach or athlete in the making the most efficient use of the equipment in the simplest and most practical way possible.
“By monitoring actual performance data such as heart rate, effort, sleep cycles and even recovery, combined with the sophisticated algorithms of our TrainingPeaks programme, we are able to adapt your training based on actual scientific data instead of only subjective feedback.”
