Meet the coach
Hi, I'm Ophir Ravina and I have a passion for helping athletes reach their full potential.
I hold both a Bachelor of Education (B.Ed.) and a Master of Science (M.Sc.) degrees, as well as certifications in various coaching and therapeutic techniques. As a coach, I am certified in cycling coaching, athletics training and strength training. In addition, I am certified in therapeutic techniques, such as medical massage, athletic strapping and clinical taping. I'm also a certified NLP master practitioner and ODT instructor. With my broad range of knowledge and skills, I am equipped to help athletes achieve their goals and perform at their best.
I believe in a holistic approach to training, considering not only physical performance but also mental and emotional well-being. With a decade of competitive racing experience, mainly in mountain biking & road cycling, in addition to running and Ironman events, I have developed a deep understanding of the challenges that athletes face in pursuit of their goals.
I have experience working and researching at the biomechanics lab in the Academic College at Wingate. Furthermore, for several years I have been the Head Coach of Sigma cycling team and the coach of VELOCITY's competitive mountain bike team. This practical and academic experience has allowed me to refine my skills and develop a personalized approach that is tailored to each athlete's unique needs and goals.
My greatest strength is my ability to understand a rider's needs and motivations, and develop individualized training routines that allow them to achieve their goals. By using modern technological tools to analyze training metrics and event analysis, in addition to regular feedback and conversations, I ensure that my athletes have a well-balanced and correct training plan that helps them reach their peak performance.
But beyond just achieving physical goals, I am passionate about helping my athletes develop in the sport and as individuals. There is nothing more fulfilling than seeing an athlete learn, grow and achieve their goals and I take pride in being a part of that journey.
If you are ready to take your performance to the next level, I invite you to book a consultation with me. Together, we can create a personalized training plan that is tailored to your unique needs and goals. the plan will help you reach your peak and be ready for your main events both physically and mentally. I look forward to hearing from you!
