Yearly Rate

For clients interesting in committing to Cycle-Smart for an entire year of coaching in advance, Cycle-Smart is happy to reward that commitment with a substantial discount.

For all levels above Level 4, clients can receive 12 months of coaching for the price of 10, with a one-time, non-refundable lump sum payment.

We are always understanding and cooperative with clients who have interruptions based on injury or illness. But if you're a client who spends 10 month with us and takes 2 months off for the off-season, it makes sense to pay that in advance and get those 2 months of off-season attention free.

The offer is available year-round, and can begin at any time. Contact us for more info or to get started.
