Take your cycling to the next level with Personal Coaching.
We know first hand the value of a good coach when it comes to guiding athletes through the complexities of training and racing. Cycling is a challenging sport and the voice of experience can save time and avoid potential pitfalls.
We believe in the value of personalized training and consider every aspect of the athlete in our approach. As coaches, we create purpose-built training plans that include structured workouts to maximize results. We use modern techniques based on strategic implementation of training phases (periodization) to build strength and endurance to meet athletes’ goals. We emphasize skills and technique to improve bike handling and technical competency. We also focus on mental attitude and state of mind as it pertains to athletic life. Personal coaching programs are designed to set up individuals for success and support them start to finish.
How it works
At its core, personal coaching takes the guesswork out of meeting your goals. Whether you’re preparing for your first century, planning a season of racing, or getting in shape for an epic adventure- personal coaching provides insights, inspiration, and straightforward instruction on the “when, where, and how” of training.
The foundation of personal coaching is an individualized training plan that is tailored to your needs as a cyclist. Every month your coach builds your program from scratch using information from your self-assessment, field test, training log, and feedback. With personal coaching, your coach is an active partner in your cycling success.
Coaching programs come in 4-week training blocks. A cycling computer with cadence, heart rate monitor, and indoor trainer/rollers are recommended to get started. Power meter encouraged. We use the Training Peaks platform to deliver schedules and provide feedback on workouts.
