have had a the pleasure of knowing Youcef from Handsling Coaching for several years. We rode together in the same group while Youcef was based in Singapore.
I began using Youcef’s professional coaching services around 3 years ago to assist me with training and preparation for amateur races, and also in trying to maintain a reasonably high level of general fitness. Youcef has been truly excellent. Unlike other coaches, he has been willing to tailor my program’s to accommodate my often intensive work travel commitments, which very often change at the last minute. Youcef has always been able to include hotel gym-bike sessions, and other strength-related workouts in my program at very short notice. Coaching services at Handsling are definitely not like the typical ‘set-and-forget’ vanilla programs usually offered up elsewhere, and impossible to follow while constantly travelling. They are personally customised based on the individual athlete and that person’s specific requirements and circumstances. And they deliver outstanding outcomes!
Since working with Youcef, being able to effectively balance training and competitive amateur racing with work and family, has become manageable and fun. Although aged 47, I feel fitter and more competitive on the bike than ever before, despite often being time-crunched. Youcef is also a totally great guy, very easy to deal with and flexible, and totally focussed on each individual he coaches.
I would highly recommend Youcef and Handsling’s services to anyone wanting to get significantly fitter and stronger.
