What do you like about Stazza’s Stable?

I like that it never takes very long for Stazza to reply to any questions I might have about the training. It’s the first coaching I’ve received apart from a generic plan from a book, so it’s good to know that it’s tailor-made and adaptable to circumstances. I like the sound of a warm-weather or altitude training camp, but my fiancée isn’t so sure with two young kids!
